Riverside Health and Rehabilitation Center is a care facility for the elderly. This facility is located in East Hartford, Connecticut. If your loved one is interested in staying in a Hartford County care center, you might consider Riverside. However, there are several factors to consider before deciding on this facility or any other. For example, your family should consider any violations that the facility has committed which could indicate neglect or abuse happening in the home. On this page, I will discuss a violation that Riverside recently had, as well as some of the pros of this facility.
In 2018, Riverside Health and Rehabilitation Center received a fine for a violation. In 2018, a resident with depression and dementia was admitted to the facility. In 2018, the resident ingested Peri-wash. Even though the staff reported the incident, there is no documentation of first aide measures that may have been taken, or monitoring of the resident after they ingested the chemical.
Because of the missing documentation, the facility was fined $860.
