Have You Experienced Inadequate Nursing Home Care?
Skilled nursing facilities, which include certified nursing homes, typically provide follow-up treatment for patients after they have been discharged from a hospital. Medical errors at these establishments include everything from dispensation of the wrong medications to the spread of infections. They are also not as widely reported as those that take place at hospitals.
A recent study, conducted by Medicare’s Inspector General, reveals the rate of medical errors resulting in injuries and death in skilled nursing facilities to be much higher than that reported for hospitals.
A majority of these errors which were actually preventable, according to the study. They also resulted in damages, both temporary and permanent, that led to more than half of the patients having to be hospitalized once more, at additional expense.
