Attorneys for SFF Riverside Heights Health Care Center Injured Victims
Some nursing homes in California are categorized as Special Focus Facilities by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) because they failed to provide minimal standards of care to their residents. By law, these facilities must take appropriate measures to ensure that all problems are immediately corrected to help maintain the health and well-being of those under their care. To ensure much-needed policies and procedures are enforced, the federal agency routinely monitors the nursing home using surveyors and investigators. These surveys are conducted through scheduled appointments and unexpected investigations anytime throughout the year when inquiring about formally filed complaints.
Currently, Riverside Heights Health Care Center is designated as a Special Focus Facility because of serious safety problems that routinely occurred at the nursing home. The Healthcare Center was given the opportunity to take appropriate measures to develop, implement and enforce affected policies and procedures to ensure that every resident receives at least the basic standards of care without the potential of being harmed, injured or killed by preventable conditions, hazards, and dangers.
