Helia Healthcare of Belleville Nursing Home
According to a report published by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Helia Healthcare of Belleville has, in the past, earned a “much below average” rating when compared to other nursing homes.

Inspections and Complaints
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services bases its ratings on inspection findings and complaint and incident reports. These cover categories like quality care, environment and resident’s rights. For example, in the past, Helia Healthcare of Belleville has had deficiencies that include failure to treat and prevent bed sores, failure to provide the care that residents need to maintain the highest possible well-being and failure to adequately assist residents with eating, drinking and hygiene.
Environmental deficiencies have also brought down this home’s rating in the past. For example, on multiple occasions, this home reportedly failed to eliminate environmental hazards and accident risks. At other times, it reportedly failed to provide an environment that was safe, comfortable and clean. These, along with the home’s concurrent “much below average” staffing rating, factored into the home’s low overall rating.
