137 Nursing Homes in Pennsylvania Receive Lowest Quality Rating by Medicare

Comments Off

Medicare has a system for rating nursing homes. The government does this because, “Nursing homes vary in the quality of care and services they provide to their residents. Reviewing health inspection results, staffing data, and quality measure data at three important ways to measure nursing home quality.” Below is a link to the section of Medicare’s website which addresses nursing home ratings. Medicare stresses that this is not a substitute for actually going to the nursing home and taking the checklist they developed.

Sometimes a family must choose a nursing home by availability. Schmidt Kramer PC lawyers help those families whose loved ones are not cared for as the nursing home promised and the family expects. Nursing home neglect happens. This rating system may help a family making the decision now, and may give insight to a family who is struggling with their loved one’s care, now.

If you have questions about an injury your loved one suffered in a nursing home call an injury attorney at Schmidt Kramer to discuss.
