What Steps Should I take When Considering a Wilson County Nursing Home?

When considering a Wilson County or any other nursing home for your elderly loved one, it is recommended that you check out each home. You go to this website to compare nursing home ratings. Once you have narrowed down your search, you should visit each home on your list and talk to their administration about how their training procedures, about how many employees there are for each patient, ask how patients with mobility problems are cared for, when meal times are and how often medicines are given and finally, what their policies are for handling emergency situations.

When you determined which nursing home is the right one and the person you care about is living there, it is best to visit them often and at different times so you can see whether or not the nursing home is doing everything that they should be. You should also talk with your elderly loved ones and see how they feel about living there. Do they seem happy and well looked after or do they seem worried, scared or isolated? Do they look clean or are their clothes dirty? Do you see any bruises, cuts, scrapes or any other signs of abuse? If you see any signs of abuse or neglect, you should talk to the nursing home first and see if the issue can be resolved. If that does not work, you can call the Tennessee Department of Health and inform them of the situation. They may send people to the nursing home to conduct an investigation about your concerns.
