Sacred Heart Nursing Home
The Sacred Heart Home located in Chicago, IL is a secure mental health facility that provides residential living, rehabilitation and psychiatric care to help residents to live with some degree of independence in a secure environment.
Everyone wants and needs security to give them a sense of peace and well being as they make their way in this world. Families who place their loved one into a nursing home facility to provide full range of care, look for a facility that is safe and secure. Residents also want and need to live in a place that is secure to optimize their sense of well-being.
One of the most important safety measures a nursing home can take is to have secure exits, fire safe wall, proper escape routes and regular drills so that residents know what to do and where to go in the case of a fire. In addition, there needs to be a fully functioning sprinklering system in place to help extinguish fires.
While safety and security is the ultimate goal, not all nursing home facilities ultimately provide these important assurances for their patients and those who love and care for them. If you have any suspicions that there are security issues that may put your loved one at risk, contact an elder law attorney.
It was reported in the past that the Sacred Heart Home received a much below average health rating and a below average rating by the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid. There were more than twice as many fire safety deficiencies than the state average.
