Attorneys Representing Injured Paramount Rehab and Nursing Center Residents
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the state of Washington keep the public informed about the level of care that every nursing facility in the state provides. The government agencies’ efforts involve investigations and surveys performed throughout the year that help identify deficiencies and violations that the Home must correct promptly.
However, some facilities with serious underlying problems require special attention from the government to ensure they maintain the health and well-being of the nursing home’s residents. In these cases, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) designate the Center as a Special Focus Facility to alert the Administrator and nursing staff that changes must occur immediately.
