Highland Health Care Center

With a past Medicare rating of “much below average”, Highland Health Care Center has been cited for deficiencies in its health inspection, as well as its staffing. In addition to staff not spending the standard amount of time with residents, this home failed to meet Medicare standards in the areas of resident treatment, quality care, and environment, as well as administrative duties. All of these deficiencies collectively resulted in the final rating given.

Resident Mistreatment

The issue of resident mistreatment has occurred at Highland Health Care Center, according to Medicare’s inspection reports. The reports mention several instances when employees with a possible history of abuse or neglect were hired, policies were not put into effect for screening and training employees, and residents did not receive the right care to keep their living conditions at their best.

If any resident at a nursing home experiences any forms of neglect or abuse, they each have the right to an elder law attorney to preserve their rights. Every nursing home resident deserves nothing short of the fullest amount of respect and care, and if a home can’t provide them, then the staff should be brought to justice.

Administrative and Staffing Deficiencies

Other deficiencies this nursing home was cited for included an administrative fault involving the failure to develop quality assessment and corrective plans for deficiencies, and the staffing inspection revealed that RN, LPN, LVN and Physical Therapy staff were not spending the state or national average amount of time on residents each day.

Deficiencies such as these, revealing neglectful behavior toward residents, are why consulting an Illinois nursing home lawyer should be your first course of action once you’re convinced you have a case of abuse or neglect. If you suspect a resident has been a victim, you can be represented for full compensation right away, preventing future mistreatment from taking place.
