Injured Meadowview Nursing and Respiratory Care Residents to Receive Monetary Compensation
The state of New Jersey and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) conduct unexpected investigations and unannounced surveys on every nursing facility statewide. Their efforts help to identify serious violations and health deficiencies that have or could compromise the well-being of the facility’s residents.
In some cases, the level of issues at a nursing home are so egregious and the underlying problems that because the violations so challenging that the facility is unable to make corrections. When this occurs, the state and federal regulators typically designate the nursing home as a Special Focus Facility (SFF) and place the Center on the Federal Medicare watchlist.
