Poorly Rated Nursing Homes in Plano
There’s only so much research you can do before deciding which nursing home you should trust with the care of your elderly family member, but you still want to make sure you do as much as possible to see which facilities have good reviews and treat their residents properly. One of the sources you can trust is Medicare.
They have a tool on their site that allows you to search nursing homes in your area. This search tool allows you to toggle on filters to further refine your search. While you’re likely interested in the top-rated homes, it’s also important to be aware of the poorly rated facilities in your area so that you can actively avoid them.
However, you might not have been privy to this information before choosing a facility, and mistakenly chose a nursing home that ended up abusing your loved one. Thankfully, you can take action against a negligent and abusive facility. You could also use this tool to determine if others have had a similar experience with the facility where your elderly family member was abused.
