Heritage Health in Hoopeston Nursing Home
Inspections performed by Medicare in the past have determined that Heritage Health in Hoopeston, formerly known as Hoopeston Community Memorial Nursing Home, is of “much below average” quality. This is because of several deficiencies in resident treatment, care, assessment and diet, as well as shortcomings with staff and the facility itself.
Mistreatment of Residents
Health inspectors determined that Heritage Health in Hoopeston failed to hire only those confirmed to have a history clear of neglect or abuse, and did not properly report incidents of mistreatment of residents. Those who need extra assistance with daily tasks such as grooming and eating were found not to have received it, and residents were not allowed to participate in the planning of their own care and treatment.
Any time a nursing home resident is found to be or have been a victim of abusive or neglectful staff, compensation can be awarded with the assistance of an elder law attorney. Illinois nursing home residents deserve nothing short of the best care, with Medicare’s national and state averages for proper treatment met by every facility.
Dietary, Environmental and Staff Deficiencies
Other deficiencies cited in the report for Heritage Health in Hoopeston included staff’s failure to store and cook food properly, ensure that the facility was generally hazard-free, and that the environment is comfortable and safe for staff, residents and visitors. RN, LPN/LVN, CNA and Physical Therapy staff were also found not to have spent the state or national average amounts of time on residents per day.
If staff members are found to be careless or abusive in the treatment of residents, all of those hurt can be represented by a nursing home abuse lawyer in every case, ensuring that they get the respect and care they deserve.
