It is unknown how many of our vulnerable elderly fall victim to neglect or abuse each year since such actions are easily hidden from view and underreported. In fact, according to the National Center for Elder Abuse (NCEA), 84 percent of abusive situations involving older adults go unreported or unrecognized.
Medicare’s Nursing Home Compare website rolled out a new icon to warn consumers of facilities that have been cited for abuse and neglect in the past 2 years. The goal of this icon is to provide more comprehensive information and warning signs to consumers that are considering placing a loved one in a nursing home or assisted living facility.
Out of the 960 nursing homes listed in Ohio, 52 of them were cited for abuse or neglect- that’s over 5%.
Ohio Nursing Homes with Abuse Icon
Explore the nursing homes and assisted living facilities that received an abuse icon on Medicare’s Nursing Home Compare website. See a detailed list at the bottom of this page.
What Constitutes Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect?
According to Medicare’s website, abuse is defined as “the willful infliction of injury, unreasonable confinement, intimidation, or punishment with resulting physical harm, pain or mental anguish.”
Different forms of abuse can include:
- Verbal abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Physical abuse
- Mental abuse
Nursing Homes Cited for Abuse
The 52 nursing home facilities that were cited for abuse in Ohio are required to take additional steps to protect their residents.
If you or a loved one is currently located in one of the nursing homes that has been cited for abuse, Medicare encourages a conversation with an administrator or senior staff member about the steps they’re taking to ensure the safety and security of their residents.
For more information on the specific citations and scenarios at each facility cited for abuse, consumers can review inspection reports and gather other information on the web to gain a more comprehensive view.
When Did the Cited Abuse or Neglect Occur?
The nursing home abuse or neglect icon will usually stay in place for the cited facility for 12 months after the incident occurred. However, if a facility has repeated violations, the icon can remain next to the listing for up to 24 months.
The facilities that received the nursing home abuse icon when Medicare launched this service were cited with a violation between October 1, 2018, and September 30, 2019. They will be reviewed monthly and the status will be adjusted accordingly based on the date of abuse or neglect.
Other Ways to Measure Nursing Home Safety
In addition to the nursing home abuse warning icon, consumers can explore other factors of each facility such as overall quality, health inspection reports, staffing, and quality measures.
Each category is ranked on a five-star scale and is categorized as:
- Much Below Average
- Below Average
- Above Average
- Much Above Average
By clicking on the profile of each nursing home, consumers can explore each category in further detail.
For health inspections, consumers can view the total number of health citations vs. the average in the state, number of complaints in the past 3 years that resulted in a citation, and a detailed report on all health inspection details.
For staffing, details such as the average number of residents per day compared to the total number of licensed nurse staff hours per resident per day are able to be viewed.
For the quality of care measure, Medicare looks at comprehensive data on both short-stay and long-stay residents to determine the overall quality of each facility.
