Facility Overview of Avalon View Health and Wellness

Name: Avalon View Health and Wellness

Address: 1200 West College Street, Liberty, MO, 64068

Avalon View Health and Wellness is a 140-bed privately owned facility with an unfortunate history of substandard living conditions and being flagged during inspections. 

In June 2023, Vertical Health Services took over 100 percent ownership of the facility. Unfortunately, the ownership change did not result in significant improvements. An inspection in December 2023 revealed 16 deficiencies in resident treatment and care.

The facility’s reviews are generally not positive, and it has a history of complaints and government penalties for failing to uphold a minimum standard of care. From July 21, 2021, to October 18, 2022, the facility received five fines totaling $288,000 and two payment suspensions of government funding. 

Avalon View Health and Wellness Key Findings and Ratings

Avalon View Health and Wellness also received poor marks from third-party reviewers and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. It has a one-star rating on Medicare.gov. The nursing home also had fire inspection violations at higher rates than the Missouri and national averages. It also performs lower than the state and national averages in two other categories: total number of nurse staff hours per resident per day and registered nurse turnover. 

In total, Avalon View Health and Wellness received 44 complaints in just three years that resulted in citations. These citations were issues because the state decided an inspection was necessary to address complaints. The facility also had 19 self-reported issues that resulted in citations in the same three-year period. These self-reported issues are based on instances in which a resident was harmed or in danger of harm.

If you or a loved one experienced abuse or neglect at Avalon View Health and Wellness, our nursing home abuse lawyers can help you explore your legal options. We offer free consultations, and there are no up-front costs. You pay nothing unless we secure compensation on your behalf.

You can start fighting for your loved one’s rights by collecting evidence, such as footage indicating signs of abuse and substandard living conditions. Bank records, receipts, and other documents can also help substantiate your case.

Our skilled legal team can collect evidence to bolster your claim against Avalon View Health and Wellness or any other negligent nursing home facility. We have extensive experience handling nursing home abuse and neglect cases. We have what it takes to hold poorly run facilities accountable.

“At Brown & Crouppen, we handle all types of nursing home neglect and abuse cases. The most common types we'll see—physical abuse or neglect, emotional abuse or neglect, financial abuse and neglect, and jewelry missing from the nursing home. Especially for people in nursing homes—the most vulnerable in our society—if you see something, say something. You have to use your instincts here. Generally, you don't think something bad is happening to a loved one. Err on the side of caution, call an attorney, let them do a little investigation, or talk you off the ledge. Tell you, ‘Oh, that's probably nothing, but we're happy to look into it,’ or, ‘No, no, I'm glad you called. That's a real red flag. That's a nursing home we've heard a lot about.’ There are also repeat offenders who are known for mistreating the residents in their homes. You just got to go with your gut and call an attorney.”
