Lonoke, AR Personal Injury Attorneys Protecting the Rights of injured Victims
Many elderly citizens need to be relocated to nursing centers, assisted living homes, rehabilitation centers to ensure they maintain the highest quality of living. Unfortunately, not every nursing home provides even the most basic standards of care. When Medicare determines the nursing center is providing resident’s insufficient care, they reclassify the home as a Special Focus Facility (SFF). The facility is then given the opportunity to correct serious problems that have the potential of causing minimal to severe harm to the residents.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently added Grand Prairie Care and Rehabilitation Center to SFF status due to serious safety concerns at its facility. The information below can be used by families interested in finding the best location in their community to place a loved one who requires ongoing medical attention and assistance with activities of daily living in a safe and loving environment. The facility will remain on the list until they correct their problems and maintain a good standing as defined by Medicare and Medicaid. If the nursing home fails to correct serious concerns, CMA will likely terminate their contract to provide care to Medicare patients and participating in the federal program.
