Government Funding Pulled On Dangerous Nursing Home

The Green Meadows Health Care Center in Louisville, Kentucky has lost its Medicare and Medicaid funding after repeatedly putting their residents at risk for danger and not investigating resident injuries.  No specific act of wrong doing is cited in the denial of government funding.  Rather, the nursing home  has received numerous type ‘A’ citations.  Type ‘A’ are the most serious and are dealt out when a nursing home resident’s safety is endangered.

No Funding for Dangerous Nursing HomeNursing homes rely almost completely on government payment to operate.  Once Medicare and Medicaid funding is lost, most nursing homes must close their doors.  Most nursing homes rely on government funding for 80-90% of their budget.

The situation at Green Meadows demonstrates the importance of making complaints regarding dangerous nursing home care.  Making a complaint with your state regulatory agency not only helps with determining the cause of nursing home abuse or neglect, but it also creates a record for future use  in screening facilities by others.

Facilities that receive ongoing complaints are subject to having their licenses pulled and government funding withheld.  If you believe that a nursing home in your area is putting the safety of residents at risk, look at the link here to learn to file a complaint against the facility using your state’s nursing home ombudsman and investigators.

Client Reviews

  • Having worked in the medical field, I appreciated the way that Mr. Rosenfeld and his staff approached my family’s situation. The combination of medical knowledge and legal expertise was indeed the winning combination for our case.
  • While nothing can change the way our mother was treated at a nursing facility, I do feel a sense of vindication that the facility was forced to pay for their treatment. I am certain that they would never have done had my attorneys not held their feet to the fire.
  • I was very nervous about initiating a claim against my mother’s nursing facility, but Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers took care of everything from getting the medical records to going to court. I felt like I had real advocates on my side. That meant a lot to me.
  • After a horrific episode at a nursing home, my sister and I spoke to a number of law firms. No one took the time to answer our questions and explain the legal process like Mr. Rosenfeld. He did a tremendous job on our case and I can see why he’s earned the praise he has from clients and peers.
  • I liked the fact that I could call the office and ask questions about the legal process at anytime. I could tell that my case was in good hands. I think that this was reflected in my father’s settlement was more than I anticipated the case ever being worth.
