Attorneys Representing Injured Victims of Wellspring Health and Rehab of Cascadia
At least twice a year, every nursing facility in the United States undergoes surveys and investigations to ensure there are no violations or deficiencies. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and the state of Idaho conduct these extensive surveys. The findings are usually posted online on the federal Medicare.gov website.
Nursing homes with the most egregious violations and deficiencies are usually placed on a Special Focus Facility (SFF) watchlist and put on notice that the substandard level of care provided to the residents will not be tolerated. The nursing home regulators provide the opportunity to the Home to make immediate corrections and adjustments to their nursing staff, policies, procedures, and guidelines.
