Injured Law-Den Nursing Home Residents Rights to Obtain Monetary Recovery
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the state of Michigan conduct routine unannounced surveys and inspections to identify serious deficiencies and health violations of every Nursing home statewide. When problems are identified, the state and federal regulators provide the nursing home the opportunity to make prompt adjustments, corrections, and changes to their policies and procedures to improve the level of care they provide the residents.
In some incidences, the nursing facility is dos not make the necessary corrections, due to monetary concerns or serious underlying problems. In response, the nursing home regulators can designate the Home as a Special Focus Facility (SFF) on the Medicare watch list. These facilities must undergo additional surveys and unannounced investigations in response to filed complaints from residents, visitors, and other employees.
