Charleston Rehab & Health Care Center

A Medicare and Medicaid participant, Charleston Rehab & Health Care Center in Charleston, Illinois has 139 beds in the facility. It offers 24-hour pharmacy and laboratory services, as well as nursing services, social and activity services, and hospice care. In the past, however, the facility has been ranked much below average by Medicare inspectors.

Inadequate Nutrition

One citation handed down from Medicare inspectors was due to the nursing home failing to store, cook, and serve food in a safe and clean way. Possibly related to this is the home’s percentage of residents who lose too much weight—Charleston Rehab & Health Center’s rates were much higher than the state and national averages. Not providing enough or safe food to residents can be considered nursing home abuse. Your loved ones deserve to live in a place where they don’t have to worry about the kind of food they are being served. If someone you know is having issues with their nutrition, contact a nursing home abuse attorney to help determine if there is a case.

Dangerous Treatment

While physically restraining residents is not prohibited, it should only be done in absolutely necessary scenarios. At Charleston Rehab & Health Care Center, the rates at which this was done, according to reports, was significantly higher than the state and national averages. This can be seen as a clear sign of nursing home abuse and should be investigated if you think someone you know is a victim of physical restraint. Further, rates of long-stay residents experiencing one or more major falls with injury were also significantly higher than state and national averages. This can be an indication of neglect, and should you know someone experiencing these incidents, you may want to consider talking to a nursing home neglect lawyer for more information.

Improper Procedures

A resident complaint called to attention that Charleston Rehab & Health Care Center failed to receive registry information about a nurse aide’s required state training and to ensure that nurses who had not worked in 24 months would receive the required retraining. Another citation reported  the nursing home’s failure to follow policies to transfer residents’ personal funds to the appropriate party following the resident’s death. These misgivings are not to be ignored, and can be an indication of other nursing home neglect issues within the facility.
