Has anyone heard of a lawsuit against NCH Long-term care facility?

Any healthcare facility or any for profit operation dealing with the public will have pending lawsuits against them. In an impoverished area, the businesses become targets for those seeking a free ride. Couple that with the prevailing level of ignorance and you have those who are incapable of critical thought and understanding of processes beyond their simple everyday experience and you are guaranteed to see lawyers looking to capitalize on the situation for their own benefit. It used to be called ambulance chasing.

I don't know specifically of a law suit but the quality of care is not what it should be. My home care patient came home and his leg was swollen beyond belief cause they forgot to have him on a no sodium diet. Also they didn't wash his hair very well and after being in there for a month all the dermatitis I had cleared up on his sclap over the past year had returned ten fold. I was not happy with the level of care that the techs provided.

They do not provide hand sanitizer for visitors or patients.And they do not notify visitors of infections that are present in the facility.

It is a hippa violation to tell any visitor of anyones medical contion including any infections present. i know they do hang signs up on residents doors if there is a problem with entering their room, it normally says see the nurse before entering.

Get used to it folks. Under ObamaCare healthcare facilities will have no choice but to utilize the most cost effective means to deliver their product in order to remain viable. You might have to use soap and water at a sink to wash your hands instead of that expensive sanitizer. And as for direct care you can expect the minimum levels allowable under the law. You wanted it...you got it, ObamaCare. Now live with it.

to write this about one place you should just list all nursing homes cause I have visited a lot and known a lot of people in nursing homes and they are all under staffed and the care is poor due to the techs having 20 patients per tech that's just the way life is in nursing homes. I know it sad and going to get worse under Obamacare.
