The Sordid findings on the Level of Patient Health Care received at Alden Des Plaines Rehabilitation and Health Care, IL

The periodic inspection and surveys carried on Illinois nursing homes by the Illinois Department of health and some private inspection organizations showed that patients admitted to this rehabilitation center received poor health assistance and were victims to neglect and in more severe cases, physical abuse. The Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers put its experienced nursing home attorneys on the case and a review of the findings of ProPublica—a private health surveyor—and found the following situations:

  • Failure to maintain a medication error rate of less than 5%: “On 8/8/12 at 9:14am, E6 administered [MEDICATION NAME] [MEDICATION NAME] to R18. R18’s POS and MAR both document the following order: [MEDICATION NAME] [MEDICATION NAME] 7.5ml via enteral tube (feeding tube) 2 times daily.E6 poured the [MEDICATION NAME] into a measuring cup. The medication was below the 7.5ml marking on the cup. E6 did not measure the [MEDICATION NAME] at eye level. When asked to explain the procedure for measuring liquid, E6 stated “I sometimes measure it with a syringe.” Prior to administering the medication to R18, E6 was asked to verify the amount in the medicine cup. E6 withdrew the medication from the cup with a syringe. The [MEDICATION NAME] measured 6.5ml.”
  • Failure to keep residents safe from serious medication errors: “On 7/19/11 at 3:54pm, E3 (LPN, Licensed Practical Nurse) obtained the blood glucose monitoring for R18. The result was 358. The physician order [REDACTED].”I’m giving him 13 units of insulin”. E3 then withdrew 14 units of insulin from the vial. E3 held the syringe up, looked at it, and then handed the syringe to the writer. E3 then entered the room of R18 to administer the insulin. Prior to administration, the writer asked E3 once again if the correct medication and correct dosage was being administered. E3 looked at the syringe a second time, and noted 14 units, then expelled 1 unit. E3 stated to the writer ” didn’t see the 14 units the 1st time.”

★★★★★
Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong, Google User

This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you. Daniel Kaim, Avvo User

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home.
