Nursing Home Abuse Your Injury, Our Fight

Chandler, AZ Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

When your elderly loved one can no longer take care of themselves within their own homes, or when you can no longer house them and take care of them in your home, you likely will come to the decision with them to move them into a nursing home. This gives the around-the-clock care and attention that they need while allowing them to maintain the independence that they want.

Ratings of Nursing Homes in Chandler, AZ

Considering the different facilities that your loved one could live in can be a daunting task. You’re determining where they’ll spend all their time and the level of care that they’ll receive. Of course, you do your best to pick a highly-rated nursing home so that they get great treatment and have a high quality of life, but sometimes those ratings don’t matter.

Or you could unknowingly have chosen a facility that has low ratings, or even has had reported abuse. It’s never too late to remove your loved one from an abusive long-term care facility—as soon as you suspect the abuse or neglect, you should take action and get them to safety. However, there are ways you can predict which facilities mistreat their residents and avoid placing your loved ones there.

Medicare has a helpful tool on their website that gives the ratings of nursing homes in your area so that you can make an informed choice. In the Chandler area, there are 15 nursing homes in the 10-mile radius of the city. Of these facilities, these are the ratings received:

  • 6 much above average
  • 3 above average
  • 2 average
  • 2 below average
  • 2 much below average

Of those ratings, one nursing home has been reported as being cited for potential issues relating to abuse of their residents. The other facilities have not been flagged for abuse, even those rated poorly, but that doesn’t mean that abuse doesn’t happen there. While this tool helps you make decisions and see which facilities have been problems for other people, that doesn’t mean that your loved one will have a perfect experience at a highly rated facility.

It’s important to pay attention to how your loved one is treated at their nursing home, regardless of how it’s rated on this site. They could still be abused and need help. Our Chandler, AZ nursing home abuse attorney is here to help you stand up for your elderly family member’s rights.
