Heartland of Decatur Nursing Home

In previous reports made by Medicare, Heartland of Decatur has failed to meet nursing home standards, culminating in an overall rating of “much below average.” The health inspection, with a rating itself of “much below average,” cites several instances of shortcomings that helped in determining these ratings.

Resident Mistreatment

According to the reports, this nursing home was unable to prevent those with histories of abuse from being hired, and reports of abuse, mistreatment or neglect were not made correctly. In addition to these deficiencies, residents’ needs and preferences were discovered not to have been reasonably accommodated.

Because of these and several other areas of insufficient resident care, the overall rating was well below acceptable. In the cases of nursing home abuse and neglect at any nursing home in Illinois, a team of nursing home attorneys can do their best to represent those who need compensation.

Fire and Environmental Safety

Apart from not respecting the rights of every resident, a past Medicare report also noted that this nursing home did not make sure that there were minimal accident risks and hazards. The report also stated that the facility had fire safety deficiencies including hallways that did not properly prevent smoke from traveling into common areas.

There should never be instances of mistreatment of residents in nursing homes, but unfortunately they do happen, and nursing home abuse lawyers are there to make sure that any and all abuse cases in Illinois are brought to justice.
