Heartland Manor Nursing Home Center
In the past, Medicare and Medicaid Services have given Heartland Manor Nursing Center a below average rating. The reasons behind the rating included, but were not limited to, quality care deficiencies, fire safety deficiencies, and a rate of depressive symptoms in residents higher than the national average. These are just a few of the key things that prospective residents need to be confident in when choosing a nursing home.
Quality of Care
Heartland Manor Nursing Center was ranked much below average in several categories dealing with resident wellness. The rate at which short-term residents experienced new or worsened pressure ulcers, or bedsores, was significantly higher than the national average. The percentage of residents who self-reported moderate to severe pain was double the national average, and more than double the Illinois average, as was the percentage of long-term residents who reported having depressive symptoms. These reports can be an indication of nursing home neglect. Nursing home care should strive to keep its residents as happy and as healthy as possible, and negligence in this area can cause significant damages. If you know someone who may have experiences neglect, contact a nursing home neglect attorney for help.
Past Resident Complaints
Previously, residents at Heartland Manor Nursing Center reported incidents where the facility failed to protect them from nursing home abuse, physical punishment, or being separated from others. They have also reported the center for failing to hire only people with no legal history of abusing or mistreating residents, and failing to develop policies that prevent mistreatment, neglect, and abuse of residents. No one should have to put up with abuse when in the care of a nursing home. If you suspect your loved one has been a victim, don’t hesitate to contact a nursing home abuse lawyer.
Although Heartland Manor Nursing Center has far fewer residents than the Illinois and national average, the amount of time available to each resident with a registered nurse each day is almost half of what the state average offers. Having access to adequate nursing care is imperative when your loved one is in an assisted living facility. A nursing home neglect lawyer can help you decide what to do if you feel someone you care about has been neglected.
