Which Delray Nursing Homes are Bad? Which are Good?
Our loved ones, once independent and strong, become weak and unable to make rational decisions with age. Once we are unable to care for them at home, the only option is to place them in a long-term care facility. There are no LTAC hospitals in Delray, so Delray’s nursing homes are the highest level of care available besides Delray Medical Center. There are also a number of Delray assisted living facility options off of Linton Boulevard and Atlantic Avenue.
It is hard to define a nursing home as ‘good’ or ‘bad.’ Nurses can leave, ownership can change and policies can be created; all of which radically effects the care provided to residents. That being said, some Delray Beach nursing homes are rated higher than others. This does not mean that a highly rated Delray facility is incapable of neglecting a resident, nor does it mean that a lower ranked skilled nursing facility is always guilty of nursing home abuse. For example, if the best nursing home in Florida happens to be short-staffed on the night shift, and that is when your husband suffered a preventable fall, this may be nursing home negligence. It all depends on the individual facts.
General Nursing Home Abuse Statistics
Suspect your loved one was neglected inside a Delray facility? Sadly, you are not alone. Nursing home neglect statistics indicate we have a systemic problem in our long term care industry:
Delray Beach Nursing Home Negligence
Delray Beach has 5 nursing homes within its city limits and over 32 facilities within 10 miles. Most of Delray’s nursing homes are located close to Linton Boulevard and not Atlantic Avenue. The majority of Delray’s nursing homes are highly rated and provide the appropriate level of care to their residents. In fact, on average, Delray’s nursing home facilities are ranked higher than the state average. However, when certain Delray Beach nursing homes are understaffed with untrained, unqualified nurses, injuries occur. When a preventable injury occurs to a resident, this is considered Delray Beach nursing home negligence.
