All nursing homes are required to develop detailed care plans for nursing home residents. They are required to submit this information to the federal government for the purposes of state inspections and quality control, as well as to receive nursing home payments made by Medicare. Nursing home care plans will differ significantly based on the particular resident’s needs. However, a very basic care plan includes the following:
Other elements of a nursing home care plan might include a description of the health services that you need, the skill level of staff who should provide you with care, the types of equipment or supplies that you need to help your medical conditions, dietary needs and preferences, your personal health goals, and information about whether you intend on being discharged from the nursing home back into your community.
The main purpose of a nursing home care plan is to ensure that you are receiving all health care and services that are necessary for your medical conditions. Having a plan in place also allows nursing home officials to assess your condition on a regular basis in order to see if those needs have changed, and to change the services being provided to you, if needed.
The nursing home abuse and neglect lawyers of Boller & Vaughan are experienced in reading and evaluating nursing home care plans to determine the level of care that was recommended for individual residents. A nursing home care plan can be evidence of a nursing home’s failure to provide necessary medical care to a resident if, for instance, no one complies with the requirement that the nursing home care plan be regularly updated to reflect a resident’s changing needs.

We live in Friendship, Wisconsin, and Boller & Vaughan came to our doorstep to discuss our mother’s wrongful death claim on a Saturday morning. Not only were we pleased with the large recovery, we were so thankful to have lawyers who were willing to explain to us every twist and turn along the way. It is great to know there is a law firm that will fight for the rights of elderly people all over Wisconsin.
Mr. Boller and Ms. Vaughan were incredible in working on my case and my daughter’s case. I was out of work and in the hospital with a new baby. Mr. Boller and Ms. Vaughan protected our rights and it was a pleasure to work with them. I hope never to be in another motor vehicle accident, however, if I am and I am injured, I will contact Boller & Vaughan immediately.
I was referred to Michelle through a friend. I have never had a better experience. It took a little over a year to get my settlement but the staff there stayed in constant contact and kept me in the loop. Oh, and Michelle actually got me MORE money than we discussed. I will refer anyone to this firm. Words cannot do justice the thanks that I have for Michelle and her staff (Mary especially) thank you guys so much!
After my husband died as a result of a motor vehicle accident, Boller & Vaughan spent countless hours talking with me, meeting with me in person, and making sure that I was okay. The drunk driver who hit us did not have any insurance, and we had to make a claim through our own insurance. Boller & Vaughan was fantastic at explaining the law to me and the handling of our claims.
After my son was injured in a daycare setting, Ms. Vaughan took the time to thoroughly investigate our case and my son’s injuries. Michele was approachable and had answers to our questions. Talking with her helped to relieve many of our anxieties.
