Symphony of Crestwood Nursing Home
In the past Medicare has given Symphony of Crestwood an inspection rating of “below average” as a result of its deficiencies in a number of areas. The accompanied results of the health inspection helped in determining this rating, with a separate rating of “much below average.” The reasons for the below average ratings are due to several faults in the nursing home’s treatment of residents, nutrition, pharmacy service and fire safety, among others.
Resident Care Deficiencies
According to the report made by Medicare, this nursing home has failed in the past to meet standards regarding quality care for residents. Instances cited include the failure to provide residents feeding tubes when needed, protect them from abuse and prevent the hiring of staff with histories of abuse or neglect.
In order to best provide for nursing home residents, the 1987 Nursing Home Reform Act gives residents rights that should never be taken away. A nursing home lawyer can be an efficient way to receive compensation for victims of neglect and abuse from nursing home staff.
Environment and Fire Safety
In the Medicare report, Symphony of Crestwood was also cited for possessing hazardous areas without proper supervision on multiple occasions, and did not have a program to prevent the spread of infection. Fire safety was also deficient, with no sprinkler system installed.
Neglect and abuse are both overlooked too often. With the help of a nursing home lawyer, you and your loved ones no longer have to put up with abusive nursing home staff and can receive both relief and compensation.
