Both federal and state law allow for inspections of nursing home facilities. Those nursing homes that are found to be deficient receive inspection reports that detail the issues. Nursing homes have a certain amount of time to correct the issue. Government has the ability to impose fines on the nursing home operator. In addition, Medicare can impose a payment suspension on the home should the deficiencies be significant enough to warrant it.
Medicare rates the nursing homes with star ratings in order to give those considering the home an idea of the quality of care. The lowest rating that a nursing home can receive is one star. This is the rating that Adrian Manor Health and Rehabilitation Center has received, meaning it is among the lowest rated nursing homes in the country. This home was particularly weak with regard to its staffing, where it received one star. This is in part due to the fact that Adrian Manor Health and Rehabilitation Center has not submitted data that can be verified through an audit, although the State of Missouri has found deficiencies with regard to hiring in its inspections.
The most recent federal inspection revealed deficiencies in the area of resident's rights. The inspections found that residents were often not advised of their rights and were not made aware of their ability to file complaints and how they can do so. Residents were also not informed of their appeal and ombudsman rights. In addition, the facility failed to follow acceptable infection prevention procedures.
In addition, there was an investigation initiated as a result of a complaint that was filed. This investigation was completed in September 2017. According to the Missouri Department of Health & Senior Services, the inquiry found that the facility failed to ensure that the resident environment was as free from accident hazards as is possible. This resulted in a citation for this nursing facility. This home also failed to ensure that each resident receives adequate supervision and assistance devices to prevent accidents. A previous inspection completed in March 2017 found that the facility failed to comply with state standards in its hiring and did not have policies and procedures to prohibit and prevent abuse of residents.
