Helia Healthcare of Benton Nursing Home

Helia Healthcare of Benton is a part of the Helia Network of Illinois.  All nursing home facilities must follow certain rules of operation to ensure the safety and well being of their patients. 

Understanding Nursing Home Requirements

Nursing homes must have qualified staff available to care for their residents. This includes nurses, doctors, and various types of therapists.  The Nursing Home Reform Act of 1987 mandates that nursing home residents receive quality care for their basic needs of food and lodging as well as their overall health and well-being.

Reporting Cases of Nursing Home Abuse, Neglect and Mistreatment

If you or a loved one is a victim of or suspect mistreatment, abuse or neglect from nursing home staff, you may be entitled to nursing home negligence compensation. Contacting an elder law attorney is the best way to make sure you or your loved one gets fair treatment.

Medicare Ratings

Medicare ratings are based on periodic nursing home evaluations by the Center for Medicare.  These evaluations are based on the standard of care that nursing homes are required to abide by in all aspects of patient care.  Each nursing home receives either satisfactory or unsatisfactory ratings based on the inspection.  If a below average or a much below average rating is given, the nursing home must make corrections to the areas of violation or the facility could be subject to fines.

Reported Inadequacies

Ideally, when nursing home residents are received into care by a nursing home, their complete patient history, including current medications should be documented and administered according to the doctor’s instructions.  Unfortunately, this does not always occur. Sometimes, nursing home staff administers medication at the wrong time or dosage.  These medication errors can lead to serious health problems for patients if not corrected.  These types of deficiencies have been noted for Helia Health Care of Benton in the past.
