Brookside Manor Nursing Home

A 49-bed nursing home, Brookside Manor in Centralia, Illinois has received much below average ratings in the past from Medicare and Medicaid inspectors. In addition to lacking policies that forbid mistreatment, neglect, and abuse of residents and residents’ property, Brookside Manor has reported far lower than average numbers for properly administering seasonal flu and pneumonia vaccines.

Shortage of Nurses

Brookside Manor was rated much below average for RN staffing, and Medicare reports show that residents had access to much less time with nurses than the state or national average times. LPN/LVN availability was also limited, with average time offered per resident also being less than the state and national averages. A shortage of medical care is a serious problem in care facilities, and nursing home neglect is an issue to consider when choosing a place for someone you love. If this has been a problem for your loved one, contact a nursing home neglect attorney for advice on how to proceed.

Safety Hazards

This facility has been cited in the past for failing to make sure that common areas are free from accident hazards and risks and for failing to provide supervision to residents that could prevent avoidable accidents. It has also previously lacked a program which would investigate, control, and prevent infection from spreading. These are serious infractions and can be signs of nursing home abuse. When appropriate care is not taken to protect the safety and health of someone you know in nursing home care, you should talk with a nursing home abuse lawyer to determine if there is something you can do.

Resident Complaints

Residents have reported incidences of being restrained when not medically necessary, which is a sign of abuse. There have also been complaints about failure to provide a telephone to residents, failure to provide housekeeping and maintenance services, and failure to quickly tell doctors the results of lab tests. While having access to a phone may seem trivial to some people, it’s important for nursing home residents to have social contact with people they know and love. Further, failing to ensure cleanliness is an indication that there may be neglect elsewhere in the facility.

This facility is located in Southern Illinois and participates in Medicare services. It has space for 49 residents, and averages 33.
