Law Firm Representing Injured Residents at Twin Rivers Nursing and Rehab Center
Nursing homes found to have recurring serious regulatory violations can be designated a Special Focus Facility (SFF) by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and state nursing home regulating agencies. This unwanted designation alerts the Administration, management, and nursing staff that serious problems need to be immediately addressed and corrected or the Home could be faced with losing their contract for treating Medicaid/Medicare patients.
Recently, Twins Rivers Nursing and Rehab Center was cited by CMS and the state of Kentucky for multiple violations that caused harm or could have caused harm, to the Home’s residents. Removal from the list could take months or years even if the corrections are made immediately. Twin Rivers will need to undergo multiple scheduled surveys and unannounced inspections to assure the Federal and State governments that the corrections they have made and improvements to their policies, procedures and guidelines are permanent.
