Jonesboro Senior Demographics

The city of Jonesboro has seen plenty of change in recent years with burgeoning population growth from 67,000 to 74,000 in only five years. The senior population makes up almost 12% of the total and this is discounting the many people who are between the ages of 50 and 65.

Performing Research on Jonesboro Nursing Facilities Requires the Appropriate Tools

The nursing industry has earned the negative stigma and attitude people have toward it at the moment through the disregard for and systemic neglect of patients in favor of greater profit margins. This makes the task of finding a qualified nursing facility seem more daunting than it really needs to be. Our Jonesboro pressure sore lawyers refer many people to the Medicare nursing home compare tool because it provides all of the information they need to avoid centers that have established histories of providing substandard care.

Medicare grades every nursing facility based on health inspection records, staff quality and its history of fines, citations and federal payment denials. You can compare homes side by side and expand your search based on how far you are willing to travel to see your loved one. To use this tool, you can visit the Medicare’s website.

How Under-Staffing Contributes to the Problem of Pressure Sores at Jonesboro Nursing Homes

Without the proper resources and support, it is impossible for nursing home caregivers to meet the needs of all their patients. They are forced to rush through their encounters so that they are able to devote time to everyone. Unfortunately, the amount of time they have to give is not sufficient to ensure that patients are comfortable and free of injury. Simply moving a bedridden patient several times a day is enough to prevent pressure ulcers and to detect existing ones.

The caregivers often get the rap for systemic neglect as it surely must be their fault for failing to notice open and infected wounds when making their rounds, but the amount of stress and responsibility placed on the shoulders of overworked nursing staff members needs to be considered. What the caregivers need the most is assistance through the addition of other team members, but their employers refuse to provide the investment.

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
