Huntington Nursing Home LawyersIt is the goal of Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC’ Huntington nursing home abuse attorneys to help seniors receive the dignity, respect and quality care that they deserve after a life of providing for those they love. In an effort to combat the current epidemic of abuse hitting the nation, we have compiled information on the lowest rated facilities in your area so that you can make more informed decisions regarding the placement of your loved one in a home. It is our hope that this will allow you to hold the nursing industry accountable by avoiding facilities that have a history of neglecting the needs of those who depend on them for care.

Huntington Senior Demographics

Huntington is the second largest city in West Virginia and its metropolitan area extends over three states and seven counties, making it the largest metropolitan area in the state. It is home to Marshall University and also where the movie We are Marshall was filmed. The city’s population is nearing 50,000 and seniors make up over 15% of the total— with many more residents nearing their retirement age.

With an aging population comes the need for access to resources and activities centered around senior health and socialization. The Cabell County Community Services Organization seeks to provide many of these resources through its Medicare counseling service, mobile meals program and the classes and events offered through six different centers located throughout the Huntington area. For more information, you may contact the CCCSO by calling (304) 529-4952.

Huntington Nursing Homes

Our Huntington nursing injury lawyers put together the following list of nursing homes to highlight the types of nursing home concerns to be aware of and to help you avoid placing your loved ones in an environment that is not suited to their needs. We’ve only listed the mediocre or poorly rated centers, so if you would like to see how a facility not listed compares, you can access the same type of information using the Medicare nursing home compare tool at https://www.medicare.gov/nursinghomecompare.

Heritage Center
101 13th Street
Huntington, WV 25701

(304) 525-7622

Ownership— For profit corporation

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 1 star out of 5

1 star rating

Primary concerns: This facility has received a single star in every area of assessment and should be avoided due to a poorly trained and employed staff, numerous health inspection deficiencies and a lack of quality control measures meant to ensure that the needs of patients are tended to. It is quite obvious with these ratings that the wellbeing of your loved ones is not the priority here.

Madison Park Healthcare
700 Madison Avenue PO Box 2806
Huntington, WV 25727

(304) 522-0032

Ownership— For profit corporation

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid:

Overall Rating— 3 stars out of 5

3 star rating

Primary concerns: While this facility is not the most poorly rated one on our list, its quality measures rating is a mere single star. This means that the concerns and needs of patients are not properly considered when preparing treatment plans or that these treatment plans are not adequately adhered to.

St. Mary’s Hospital
2900 First Street
Huntington, WV 25702
(304) 526-8983

Ownership— Non-profit- Church

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Medicare only

Overall Rating— 3 stars out of 5

3 star rating

Primary concerns: This facility has an excellent staff rating, but patients needing to use Medicaid as a source of payment are unable to do so and the center is plagued by multiple health and safety deficiencies. Its quality measures rating also suggests that improvements need to be made in how the center assesses and addresses the needs of patients.

River’s Bend Health Care
335 Township Road
South Point, OH 45680

(740) 894-3476

Ownership— For profit corporation

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 2 stars out of 5

2 star rating

Primary concerns: Understaffing typical of for profit facilities is prevalent here and its poor health inspection history may be due to an overloaded and undertrained staff. Until this facility makes improvements in both areas, it is not an optimal choice.

Heartland of Riverview
7743 County Road 1
South Point, OH 45680

(740) 894-3287

Ownership— For profit corporation

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 2 stars out of 5

2 star rating

Primary concerns: This facility’s staff rating score is a single star. An understaffed and poorly trained staff lacks the resources needed to ensure that all patients receive the care they both need and deserve and this results in diminished quality of care despite the best intentions of staff members.

Woodland Oaks
1820 Oakview Road
Ashland, KY 41101
(606) 325-5200

Ownership— For profit corporation

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 3 stars out of 5

3 star rating

Primary concerns: The one star quality measures rating sticks out the most for this facility, which otherwise has decent scores in other areas of assessment. Low quality measures scores translate into a higher chance that your loved one’s needs will not be addressed.

When to Seek Legal Representation

Our Huntington nursing home injury lawyers understand that it may be very worrisome and difficult not only to imagine that your loved one may be the victim of abuse, but also not to know whether your suspicions are founded. If you notice any of the following signs of abuse or neglect, we invite you to contact us and we will let you know whether we believe the matter warrants a detailed investigation.

  • Your loved one is hospitalized due to medication errors or an unexplained infection.
  • Your loved one develops bedsores or existing sores worsen due to neglect.
  • You notice signs of restraint or physical assault such as bruises or marks on the wrists and ankles.
  • Your loved one begins to experience unexplained mood swings, bouts of depression or angry outbursts.
  • Your loved one is injured in a fall and you suspect he or she was not properly supervised.
