Lawyers for SFF San Fernando Post-Acute Hospital Injured Victims
The State of California and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) routinely make unannounced visits at nursing facilities throughout the state to ensure they are providing every resident the highest quality of care as defined by nursing home regulations. These inspections and surveys can identify any deficiency in the level of care the residents receive. When the deficiency is identified, the problem must be corrected, or the facility faces contractual termination with Medicare and Medicaid.
Currently, the San Fernando Post-Acute Hospital has been designated a Special Focus Facility (SFF), meaning it has a history of serious healthcare quality problems. The CMS gives the facility the opportunity to correct these issues and establish a better foundation for providing the basic minimums of care for every resident. Before the facility’s designation can be removed, the Home must pass multiple surveys and investigations over the course of months or years. These issues involve problems that could cause minor to severe harm, injury or death of one or more residents.
