Disquieting Findings Regarding Patient Care at The Imperial Grove Pavilion

The surveys conducted by the Illinois Department of Health and some private health inspection firms including ProPublica discovered different episodes of poor patient care and abuse at the health center which could be interpreted as nursing home negligence. The nursing home attorneys of Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers reviewed the findings of ProPublica and following episodes:

  • Failure to administer pain medication in a timely manner:  “On 5/23/12 at 9:12 am, R4 stated, “I got a lot of swelling. I put ice. Surgery on left knee last Wednesday. Pain medication works. Sometimes late. Got here 2:00 pm on Monday. On Monday until 11:00 pm one pill for pain. The pain started between 5:00 to 6:00 pm. My pain was rated an 8 on a scale of 1 to 10. I told at 5:00 or 6:00 pm I needed pain medication. I felt bad. I want to get out of here. I call and no one answers. Yesterday I call and no one appears for 2 hours.” On 5/25/12 in am the facility presented statement from R4 stating, “I received my pain medication around 8:30 pm from the charge nurse. Charge nurse stated that medication had not been delivered by pharmacy yet but would be able to borrow some until her medicine arrives.” On 5/23/12 at 9:22 am R32 (roommate for R4) stated, “Many times she (R4) calls and they don’t come right away. Have to wait 1 hour. It took 2 hours to get water on Monday (5/21/12).” R4′s statement indicates she was in pain between 5:00 to 6:00 pm. Documentation on another residents narcotic count sheet was presented as evidence R4 received [MEDICATION NAME] for her pain at 8:30 pm. There is a 2.5 hour delay in administration of pain medication for R4.”
  • Failure to ensure residents are free from serious medication errors: “On 5/23/2012 at 2:00pm E17 Licensed Practical Nurse, (LPN) prepared 4 milliliters (ml) of [MEDICATION NAME] suspension for R13 and administer it to the resident. E17 did not follow the drug manufacturer recommendation to shake the bottle before preparing and administering medication. E17 was asked if the correct dosage was administered, no response was given. On 5/23/2012 at 1:05pm Z4 (Pharmacy Consultant) stated the medication in the suspension tends to settle in the bottom. If the suspension is not shook, it is not an accurate dose. Z4 stated not receiving the adequate dosage of [MEDICATION NAME] increases the risk for [MEDICAL CONDITION].”
  • Failure to follow infection control procedures: “On 5/22/12 at 3:45 PM, E6 rendered incontinent care to R11. R11 had a bowel movement. E6 provided perineal care and changed R11′s incontinent pad. E6 did not change gloves nor wash hands from dirty to clean task. E6 only washed his hands after all the task were completed.”
