Cedar Rapids Senior Demographics

Many famous athletes also have their roots in Cedar Rapids, such as Kurt Warner, Trent Green and Zach Johnson. The city is proud of its diverse cultural museums and theaters and home to over 126,000 people.

Seniors make up over 13% of the population, which make them a significant group that requires attention.

Cedar Rapids Nursing Homes

Our Cedar Rapid nursing injury lawyers obtained all of the information we needed to compile the following list by using the nursing home compare tool offered by Medicare; which rates every nursing home in the country so that you can tell which ones are providing the level of care that your loved ones deserve and which are falling short. We’ve only focused on the worst rated facilities to help you avoid placing the people you care for in a harmful environment, but you may use the tool to evaluate and compare facilities by visiting https://www.medicare.gov/nursinghomecompare.

Meth-Wick Health Center
1224 13th Street
Cedar Rapids, IA 52405
(319) 365-9171

Ownership— Non-profit corporation

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 2 stars out of 5

2 star rating

Primary concerns: Both the quality measures and health inspection history for this facility received poor scores, which suggests that residents here will not receive care personalized to their own needs and will be at greater risk of exposure to disease, unsanitary conditions and other environmental hazards.

Heritage Specialty Care
200 Clive Drive
Cedar Rapids, IA 52404
(319) 396-7171

Ownership— Non-profit corporation

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 1 star out of 5

1 star rating

Primary concerns: The numerous health inspection deficiencies reported against this center are the greatest concern. It received only one star for its inspection history, which means that the environment is not very safe for residents. A two star staff quality rating may be the root cause for these woes.

Crestview Acres
1485 Grand
Marion, IA 52302
(319) 377-4823

Ownership— For profit corporation

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 2 stars out of 5

2 star rating

Primary concerns: Very poor quality measures and a horrible health inspection history raise serious red flags here. The fact that quality measures are so severely lacking indicates that the needs of patients have taken a backseat to profit margins, which is becoming common with for profit facilities. Greater investment into making sure that each patient has access to care molded around their specific needs is needed before this center can be considered a viable option.

Hiawatha Care Center
405 North 15th Avenue

Ownership— For profit corporation

Nursing Injuries that Warrant Legal Action

Merely being dissatisfied is not enough to warrant litigation against a nursing home, but our Cedar Rapids nursing injury lawyers can help you investigate suspicions of mistreatment to determine whether you can hold the center accountable for negligent or abusive behavior. Your loved one may be entitled to compensation if he or she experiences any of the following types of injuries.

  • Fractures from falls, slips or drops. It is the responsibility of nursing home staff to properly supervise patients that present a fall risk and to ensure that the areas patients walk through are free of clutter and marked when wet.
  • Development of bedsores. While stage one or two bedsores are likely to occur with patients experiencing limited mobility, it is simply unacceptable that these sores go unnoticed and allowed to proceed to later stages when prevention and treatment merely requires repositioning the patient regularly.
  • Hospitalizations due to medication errors. It is alarming how common medication errors are, but most of the injuries suffered are minor or of little consequence. Improper dosing or the administration of the wrong medicines may result in severe injury or death in other instances, however.
  • Verbal, physical or sexual abuse. These injuries are heinous and the abusers and facilities should be held to account for the physical and emotional scars victims must bear.

Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC has helped thousands of clients who were mistreated by the very people who were supposed to tend to their needs. It is unacceptable for nursing centers, which charge exorbitant fees for their services, to place their profits above the needs of their patients.

Client Reviews

★★★★★
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa

After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
