Gilbert Nursing Home Ratings

When you suspect that your loved one is being abused in their long-term care facility, your first thought could be to check if that nursing home has a history of mistreating their residents. Even though you likely did your research before moving your family member into this facility, it’s possible that you didn’t see any information to make you believe the facility was dangerous or had bad staffing.

Through Medicare, you can check the ratings of the facilities in the area so that you can either avoid certain nursing homes, or use the tool to compare the care others have received to what you or your loved one has experienced. According to the facility compare tool, these are the ratings of the nursing homes in Gilbert and the surrounding area:

  • 9 much above average
  • 5 above average
  • 3 average
  • 3 below average
  • 1 much below average

In order to get these ratings, Medicare uses data of the nursing facility’s health inspections, staffing reports, and quality of resident care. According to this comparison tool, none of the facilities in the Gilbert area have had reports of abuse or neglect, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist within their facilities.

Just because abuse isn’t reported doesn’t mean abuse doesn’t occur. Residents could be scared to speak up, or not have the power to take legal action. That’s why our Gilbert, AZ nursing home abuse attorney is here—we’re prepared to be the voice of victims so that the staff and facility are held responsible for their wrongful actions against patients.
