Regency Rehabilitation Center
According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Regency Rehabilitation Center has, in the past, been rated as “below average.” This rating was published by Medicare, which helps provide funding for the center. Regency Rehab Center’s below-average rating was determined based on a relatively high number of health deficiencies, as well as resident complaints, incident reports and staffing measures that were also rated “below average.”
Noted Deficiencies and Complaints
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services reports that in the past, this center has been cited for various mistreatment and quality care deficiencies. These include, but are not limited to, failure to implement anti-abuse/theft policies, failure to give the treatment necessary to prevent and heal bed sores and failure to give residents the daily assistance that they need. This home has also been cited in the past for failing to hire people without a legal history of abuse or neglect, or to investigate alleged cases of abuse or neglect. According to the Medicare report, this home has, in the past, been found to have more than twice the Illinois average number of health deficiencies. Various other reports of resident rights violations ultimately contributed to this home’s below-average rating.
When a person in a nursing home suffers from abuse, neglect or mistreatment, someone must be held accountable. A nursing home lawyer can help you seek justice.
According to the reports listed by Medicare, this home has, in the past, been cited for having a “below average” staffing rating. At the time of inspection, this home had three times as many residents as the national average, and those residents received less individual attention from CNA and LPN staff members than the national and Illinois averages. For example, the amount of time that residents received with a CNA was half of the Illinois average, and less than a third of the national average.
Nursing home residents need individual attention to maintain good health and overcome illnesses and injuries. If a loved one isn’t receiving the care that they need and their condition is suffering, contact a nursing home negligence attorney for help.
