Successful Challenge to Immediate Jeopardy Deficiencies for Nursing Home Client

Hodgson Russ assisted a skilled nursing facility in its successful challenge before the Departmental Appeals Board (DAB) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to immediate jeopardy deficiencies arising out of an unsubstantiated allegation of family member abuse of a nursing home resident. As a result of the appeal, we were able to convince the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to reduce all of the challenged deficiencies below the immediate jeopardy level. This enabled the skilled nursing facility to return to its former five-star quality rating.
