The safety and quality of care provided by a nursing home are important factors when choosing a facility. Nursing homes must meet national standards, which include providing appropriate care and services for residents. When these standards are not met, the state can issue warnings and citations to the facility for violations. These violations do not necessarily mean that the facility is dangerous or unsafe; however, they are an indication that the nursing home is not meeting certain standards. Our nursing home abuse lawyers at The Kryder Law Group, LLC Accident and Injury Lawyers understand the importance of securing the safety and welfare of our loved ones.
We’ve put together this series on nursing home violations and ratings to help provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision when selecting a long-term care facility. In this article, we will look at Lakeview Rehabilitation & Nursing Center.
