Signature Healthcare of Bowling Green

550 High Street
Bowling Green, KY 42101
(270) 843-3296
Ownership— For profit corporation
Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes
Overall Rating— 2 stars out of 5
2 star rating

Primary concerns: While this facility has received mediocre staff and quality measures ratings, its health inspection record raises a red flag. Numerous safety violations indicate neglect toward hygiene, environmental safety, fall prevention and disease prevention.

Bowling Green Nursing and Rehabilitation Center

1561 Newton Avenue
Bowling Green, KY 42104
(270) 842-1611
Ownership— For profit corporation
Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes
Overall Rating— 2 stars out of 5
2 star rating

Primary concerns: A one star staff quality rating indicates that this facility is severely understaffed. It is a common strategy among for profit centers to eliminate critical staff positions to save money, but this results in poor quality of care and the inability of the skeleton staff to tend to every resident’s needs. It should come as no surprise that this center also has an unacceptable health inspection history with numerous safety violations.

Hopkins Center

460 South College Street
Woodburn, KY 42170
(270) 529-2853
Ownership— For profit corporation
Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes
Overall Rating— 2 stars out of 5
2 star rating

Primary concerns: Understaffing and poor quality measures are serious concerns for this facility, which is also plagued with health inspection deficiencies. Quality measures ratings evaluate how well the administration and staff tends to the personal needs of residents through the development of personalized care plans and addressing resident concerns. This nursing home has failed greatly to that effect and the failure could be explained by its two star staff rating.

813 South Main Street
Brownsville, KY 42210
(270) 597-2335
Ownership— For profit corporation
Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Primary concerns: An abysmal health inspection history, mediocre staff and one star quality measures rating are ample reasons to steer clear of this nursing home when considering who to trust with your loved ones’ care.

How to tell if Your Loved One is a Victim of Abuse or Neglect at a Bowling Green Nursing Facility

Our Bowling Green nursing injury attorneys understand that it can be frustrating to wonder whether a change in your loved one’s behavior is due to mistreatment or the development of common neurological disorders. We often advise looking into the matter further if the change is sudden rather than gradual and if there are other accompanying indications of neglect or abuse. These signs include the following.

  • The development of bedsores, which are a notorious sign of neglect. The prevention or treatment of these sores is extremely simple, so their worsening usually occurs when staff are unable to turn the patient regularly and fail to notice the presence of ulcers because they are not looking.
  • Symptoms of dehydration or malnourishment, which include weakness, fatigue, confusion, weight loss, darkened urine and fainting.
  • Unexplained infections or infections which are allowed to spread to the blood due to non-treatment. This condition is called sepsis and is life threatening.
  • Physical symptoms of abuse, such as bruises and marks. The most common locations for these marks are on the wrists or ankles, which signal physical restraint. Bruises elsewhere can indicate physical or sexual assault.
  • Sudden changes in mood or behavior, such as angry outbursts, depression and paranoia in the presence of caregivers.
  • An environment filled with clutter or trip hazards. This may indicate other environmental hazards resulting from poor hygiene standards and the inability of staff to keep residents’ personal spaces clean.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa

After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
