Injured Lennwood Nursing and Rehabilitation Center Residents Seeking Financial Compensation
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the state of Texas conduct routine surveys and unannounced investigations at every nursing facility statewide. The effort to the surveyors and inspectors help identify serious concerns involving violations and deficiencies at the Home. When problems are identified, the facility has the opportunity to make immediate corrections to maintain and protect the health and safety of every resident.
In some egregious cases, state and federal nursing center regulators will designate a Home as a Special Focus Facility (SFF) on a national watch list. Receiving this unwelcomed designation means that the facility will have to undergo additional unscheduled surveys and inspections to determine the level of improvements that the nursing home has made. The facility can only be removed from the watch list after many years of proving how significant changes made to the policies/procedures in providing care has significantly increased the quality of life of the resident.
