Helia Healthcare of Energy Nursing Home

Helia Healthcare of Energy is a nursing home facility in Energy, Illinois, and in the past it has received below average ratings from Medicare inspectors. This facility has space for up to 139 residents. In previous reports, this facility was found to have failed to write and use policies that forbid mistreatment of residents and theft of residents’ property, as well as failed to hire only people with no history of abusing, neglecting, or mistreating residents. Additionally, reports found that Helia Healthcare of Energy failed to store, cook, and serve food in a safe and clean way. Finally, this facility was reported to have failed at keeping their rate of medication errors—including wrong dosage and wrong drugs—lower than five percent.

Potentially Unsafe Hiring Practices

Previous Medicare inspections showed that Helia Healthcare of Energy failed to implement policies that forbid the mistreatment of nursing home residents, as well as failed to hire only employees who had no legal history of abusing, neglecting, or mistreating residents. When people stay in nursing homes, they should be able to expect quality, compassionate care from the staff at the facility. When proper hiring practices are not followed, and policies aren’t in place for protecting the residents, there’s a higher chance that residents will experience nursing home abuse or neglect. If you or someone you care about has experienced a problem with staff being abusive while in this or any other nursing home, you may want to contact a nursing home abuse lawyer for help.

Improper Nutrition Offered

Medicare inspectors also reported that this facility has, in the past, failed to store, cook, and serve food in a safe and clean way. Proper nutrition is essential for everyone, but perhaps especially those who are reliant on others for their care. When residents in nursing homes aren’t given properly safe food, their health can easily decline. Furthermore, if the food served is not safe, it can be an indication that corners are being cut elsewhere, too. Don’t settle for potential warning signs of nursing home neglect such as a lack of safe food. If you know someone who has been served unsafe food or you suspect neglect, consider talking with a nursing home neglect attorney for advice on what you can do about the situation.

Medication Errors

Medication errors can have grave consequences. Being given the wrong drug, the wrong dose, or being given medicine at the wrong time can all cause problems with a resident. Medicare inspectors reported that in the past, Helia Healthcare of Energy failed to keep their rate of errors under five percent. Improperly medicating residents can cause sickness, trauma, or even death, and should be treated seriously. If you know someone who has experienced improper medication administration, this could be a sign of nursing home neglect elsewhere in the facility and is important not to ignore. Don’t hesitate to discuss your case with a nursing home neglect lawyer for help.
