Salem Village Nursing & Rehab
In the past, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services have determined that Salem Village Nursing & Rehab performed at a “much below average” rating. While most of the charges levied against this facility were for deficiencies that represented “minimal harm or potential for actual harm,” these incidents affected enough residents to make a significant impact in the report. Despite an “average” staffing rating, the deficiencies and “below average” quality measures brought the overall score for this facility down.
Health and safety inspections have found deficiencies at this home in the past. In some cases, these were related to the mistreatment of residents, like restraining residents without medical cause or failing to institute anti-mistreatment, abuse, neglect and theft policies. Other deficiencies included safety precaution failures, fire safety deficiencies and failure to respect the dignity of residents.
Another way that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services inspects and determines the quality of a nursing home is quality measures. Quality measures make a determination of the overall quality of care that residents receive based on a grading rubric. When Salem Village Nursing & Rehab was investigated using these quality measures, it received a “below average” rating.
For example, the percentage of residents reporting moderate to severe pain was higher than national and Illinois averages, as were the percentages of patients that fell and experienced major injury, patients with UTIs and patients with catheters.
