Three Springs Lodge Nursing Home
Southern Illinois’ Three Springs Lodge Nursing Home, LLC provides nursing care and hospice services for up to 83 residents. Though it is a participant of Medicare and Medicaid Services, Medicare reports have ranked the facility much below average in the past.
Access to enough medical care is imperative when one is in a nursing home’s care, but Three Springs Lodge Nursing Home, LLC has shown to offer far less time with RNs, nurse practitioners, and physical therapy staff than state and national averages. Some resident complaints have detailed staffing issues, including lack of having a registered nurse onsite for at least eight hours a day, seven days a week. Others reported nursing home neglect in the form of the facility’s failure to provide adequate support for residents’ needs. If you or someone you know has had an issue related to this nursing home’s potential staff shortage, don’t hesitate to contact a nursing home neglect lawyer for help.
Dangerous or Inconvenient Living Quarters
Reports from Medicare inspectors have shown that Three Springs Lodge Nursing Home, LLC has failed to provide rooms that are at least 80 square feet per resident in shared rooms, or 100 square feet in single resident rooms. These cramped quarters cannot be comfortable for the residents. Additionally, the reports have cited the facility’s failure to ensure common areas are free of safety hazards and risks. Having to worry about accidents and not having enough space to live can be considered forms of nursing home abuse. No one should have to feel like they have no room or that they are at risk of injury when they are staying in a nursing home. When someone you know details these things to you and you want something to be done, contacting a nursing home abuse lawyer is a good first step.
Lack of Proper Treatment
Deficiencies were reported regarding the lack of proper care for existing bedsores, and it was said that there should be better procedures for preventing new bedsores. Physical problems aren’t the only things that need attending, however—reports also suggested that proper treatment wasn’t given to residents who had mental or psychosocial problems adjusting to life in Three Springs Lodge Nursing Home, LLC. Lack of care is a clear sign of nursing home neglect.
