The Des Moines Register recently reported that two Iowa nursing homes received low federal quality ratings, with one facility getting one star and another nursing home receiving only two out of five stars.
Windmill Manor is the facility that received one star and Iowa City Rehab and Health Care got two stars. Windmill Manor has had a troubled inspection history lately receiving multiple federal and state penalties. Iowa City Rehab and Health Care did not fare well with it’s health inspection scores.
Nursing homes that have low quality ratings are certainly facilities that nursing home residents and their loved ones need to be wary of. However, even nursing homes with high quality ratings are still at risk for nursing home abuse and neglect issues.
If you or a loved one has been abused or neglected in a nursing home we strongly advise you to seek the legal consultation of a nursing home abuse lawyer.
