Symphony of Joliet Nursing Home
In the past, Symphony of Joliet has received “below average” ratings from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Since Medicare and Medicaid are government services that help fund nursing homes, they are obliged to report on investigations of those homes and assign ratings based on their performance—they may even fine nursing homes if they find that they are violating their standards. This post acute rehabilitation and healthcare facility has, in the past, been fined by these programs.
After past inspections, Symphony of Joliet has been cited for deficiencies in areas like residents’ rights, the facility’s environment, resident mistreatment, fire safety and more. For example, one past inspection found that the facility did not have properly maintained smoke detectors, potentially placing many of the residents in harm’s way. Other deficiencies included restraining residents without medical cause, failing to allow residents to determine their own schedules and failing to grant residents accurate assessments by qualified health professionals.
If you find that a loved one isn’t getting the care or respect he deserves from a home, you have the power to act. A nursing home attorney can help with reports of abuse, neglect or mistreatment.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services determines the overall quality of resident care based on a series of assessments it calls “quality measures.” In the past, Symphony of Joliet has received “below average” scores on its quality measure tests. For example, the percentage of long-stay residents that were physically restrained was found to be more than three times the national average. This and other unfavorable scores on the quality measures tests earned this home a below-average rating.
There’s no substitute for first-hand knowledge. Keep an eye on the progress and wellbeing of any loved one in a home, whether it’s short-term or long-term. If you suspect mistreatment, consider contacting a nursing home abuse lawyer.
