Law Firm Represents Injured Victims of Good Samaritan Society – Alliance
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the state of Nebraska routinely conduct investigations and surveys at every nursing facility statewide. Their efforts help identify serious concerns, violations and deficiencies occurring inside the nursing home that affect the health and well-being of the residents. In some incidents, the surveyors will issue one or more citations and call for prompt corrective action.
At some locations, the underlying problems of the nursing facility that led to the discrepancies make it extremely difficult to ensure that any improvement made at the Home remains permanent. In the most deplorable cases, the nursing home will be placed on a national watchlist and designated a Special Focus Facility (SFF). This special designation will result in numerous additional surveys, investigations, and inspections throughout the year to determine if the nursing home has made any significant improvement to the level of care they provide.
