Hitz Memorial Nursing Home

Hitz Memorial Home is located in Alhambra, Illinois, and is a nursing home facility that has room for up to 59 residents. It is also a Medicaid and Medicare participant, and inspectors from Medicare have, in the past, given below average ratings to this facility. Inspectors found that this facility has previously failed to properly care for residents needing special services, such as injections, colostomy, ureostomy, ileostomy, tracheostomy care, tracheal suctioning, respiratory care, foot care, and prostheses.  Reports also cited the facility for failing to provide three meals at regular times during the day, failing to serve breakfast withing14 hours after dinner, and failing to offer a snack at bedtime. Finally, Hitz Memorial home was found in inspections to not have automatic sprinkler systems that were in working order, or an adequate water supply for the sprinkler system.

Offering Adequate Care

One of the key requirements of nursing care is actually providing quality, competent, and compassionate care. This facility was found in previous inspections to not provide adequate care for residents who needed special services, including injections, colostomy, tracheal care, respiratory care and more. Providing sufficient care for residents, especially if they require care that goes above and beyond standard care procedures, is essential. Failing to provide adequate care can be considered a type of nursing home abuse or neglect, and should not be tolerated. If you or someone you know has dealt with an inadequate care experience while in a nursing facility, don’t hesitate to contact a nursing home abuse lawyer.

Providing Proper Nutrition

Nursing care facilities need to also ensure that their residents are kept as healthy as possible, and part of that means providing adequate nutrition to the people within the nursing home. It also means offering them meals at regular intervals. At Hitz Memorial Home, Medicare inspectors cited the facility for failing to offer three meals at regular times, failing to offer bedtime snacks, and failing to provide breakfast within 14 hours after dinner. This can all be considered nursing home neglect, as nursing home residents should not have to wonder when their next meal will come, or otherwise go hungry. If you’ve stayed in a nursing home, or know someone who has, where food is not given at regular intervals, you should speak with a nursing home neglect lawyer about your case to find out if there is anything you can do to rectify the problems.

Maintaining Safe Facility Grounds

It’s essential for healthcare facilities to have proper systems installed to maintain fire safety. At this facility, inspectors have, in the past, discovered a lack of automatic sprinklers that were working. Additionally, inspectors found that this facility did not have an adequate water supply for the sprinkler system. These two factors combined make up for a potentially very dangerous situation. Failing to ensure that facility grounds are optimally safe for residents to live in is a sign of negligence, and it can indicate neglect or abuse in other areas of the nursing home, as well. If you feel that your safety was compromised when you were staying in this or any other nursing home, calling a nursing home neglect attorney can provide you with more information on your rights.
