However, two nursing homes in Georgia have already been cited by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The two nursing homes, Muscogee Manor and Rehab Center in Columbus and PruittHealth in Atlanta, were first cited by CMS as Special Focus Facilities that needed extra attention to make sure that they began following required quality care measures. Then, after a secondary survey, the two nursing homes were found to have shown improvement.
The CMS’s surveys are a necessary step in making sure that our elderly loved ones are properly looked after in nursing homes around the country. Unfortunately, it’s a very big task, thanks to just how bad nursing home care may have become in recent years.
And you may not be able to trust nursing homes that look good on the outside or have been around for years. Muscogee Manor and Rehabilitation Center, for instance, has its own “rehab wing,” while PruittHealth has been open for business for 45 years!
If you can’t read a book by its cover, you certainly can’t read a nursing home by its appearance, either.
If your loved one is in a nursing home in Georgia and you are concerned that they may be suffering from elderly abuse or neglect, follow your instinct, because you may be onto something.
A nursing home abuse lawsuit can help save lives by making sure that the dangerous nursing homes of today are dramatically improved for tomorrow.
Help be a part of this necessary change on behalf of our elderly loved ones!
