Reported Failures in Care at the Levering Regional Health Care Center

Nursing home abuse and neglect are real threats to the health and safety of elderly residents in Hannibal and throughout Missouri. The reasons for deficient care vary from facility to facility but can include poor hiring and training practices, cost-cutting measures, and other ineffective policies. 

Since 2021, the Levering Regional Health Care Center has had the following deficiencies reported:

  • Concerns with cleanliness in resident rooms
  • Poor nutrition and dietary standards 
  • Failure to prevent abuse from staff
  • Insufficient staffing to provide quality control assessments
  • Failure to meet basic care needs

About the Levering Regional Health Care Center Nursing Home

  • Name: Levering Regional Health Care Center
  • Address: 1734 Market St., Hannibal, Missouri 
  • Phone: (573) 221-2930

The Levering Regional Health Care Center is a Reliant Care Management affiliate and a large facility with 179 beds. It provides both short-term rehabilitation and long-term care. However, the facility is not part of a continuing care retirement community. 

As recently as October 5, 2023, the facility had 59 total deficiencies in care reported against it and has been subject to financial penalties totaling $517,000. These issues have also led to three payment suspensions from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Last year, numerous reports brought the Levering Regional Health Care Center’s ability to properly care for residents into serious doubt.

Complaint Report Dated October 5, 2023

The report cited a failure to keep a sanitary environment for residents by not cleaning walls, floors, toilets, bed linens, and other fixtures after they became soiled with urine and feces. The facility did not replace wet ceiling tiles that contained black mold. 

Standard Report Dated July 13, 2023

This report indicated a basic failure to provide residents with nutritional and dietary needs, including by not assisting with eating, serving adequate portions, and preparing food according to the facility’s recipes. The facility also failed in health care assessment and planning for residents by not developing care plans and reviewing them with medical professionals. 

Standard Report Dated January 4, 2023

The facility’s staff failed to treat residents with dignity and respect in verbal communication, such as by using profanity against them. The report further stated the facility failed to timely investigate and address instances of abuse and neglect toward residents. This included failures to notify doctors and family members about resident injuries and decline in health. 

The report further detailed neglect in providing necessary treatments to residents, such as dialysis services and foot care. The facility also failed to keep essential equipment working safely. 

Levering Regional Health Care Center Reviews and Ratings

The reviews and ratings from third-party sources also showcase the inadequate care that the Levering Regional Health Care Center has given its residents. For example, U.S. News gave the facility a one-out-of-five overall rating, the lowest possible score. Another reporting group, ElderGuide, gave an equally poor F-rating for the facility’s short and long-term care quality. 

Reports also indicate the facility may lack the staff levels to care for its residents. For example, daily nurse hours per resident is 1.09 compared to the state average of 3.3.  

How Long Do I Have to File a Nursing Home Abuse Claim?

The nursing home abuse statute of limitations in Missouri is normally five years from the date the abuse occurred, but this may vary depending on the facts of your case. You must file a claim before the filing deadline to preserve your right to seek damages against the liable facility. Meet with one of our nursing home lawyers as soon as possible to discuss your legal options and file before the deadline passes.
