Shawnee Christian Nursing Center

In the past, Shawnee Christian Nursing Center has received “much below average” ratings from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. It’s “much below average” ratings in the areas of health inspection and quality measures earned it this unfavorable distinction, and the home has also been fined by the government agencies from which it collects funding.

Repeat Violations

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services assess complaints and incident reports filed against all nursing homes that they fund, and their findings from Shawnee Christian Nursing Center reveal that the home has been guilty of repeated violations. For example, during a single three-year period, the home accumulated over two dozen complaints and incident reports, six of which were related to the presence of accident hazards and the risk of avoidable accidents. On four occasions, the home was found to not provide the necessary care and services to maintain the highest well being of its residents. In the past, the home was also found to be guilty of not informing the resident (or his doctor or family) about changes that may affect him, such as injury or declining health.

You should always be able to trust the nursing home that cares for your loved one. If you suspect that your nursing home is withholding information from you or placing its residents in harm’s way, a nursing home neglect lawyer can get to the bottom of things.

Poor Quality Measures

Quality measures are resident health and wellbeing assessments, and in the past, Shawnee Christian Nursing Center has rated as “much below average” in its quality measures. For example, the percentage of residents experiencing a fall with a major injury was higher than the national and Illinois averages. Also higher than state and national averages were the percentages of residents that lost too much weight, were physically restrained, reported moderate to severe pain, demonstrated depressive symptoms and needed increasingly more help with daily activities.

No one in a nursing home should needlessly suffer. If you think your loved one is receiving inadequate care, a nursing home lawyer can help.
