Nursing Facility Patient Safety Concerns

However, the Evanston nursing home neglect attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC have found numerous complaints and concerns involving Alden Estates of Evanston. These concerns were filed during Annual Certification and Licensure surveys handled by state and federal inspectors and surveyors. They include:

  • Failure to Provide Medical Care to Rule out Gangrene in Residence with Bedsores:

    n a summary statement of deficiencies dated 01/20/2012, a surveyor noted that “the facility failed to provide medical care to rule out gangrene in [a resident] and failed to have dietary interventions for two [other residents who were] reviewed for pressure sores.

    In one case, it was noted that a resident’s right heel pressure sore was “not healing and getting worse” and that the “wound was black with gray around the edges which could be a sign of gangrene.” A member of the facility’s medical staff “stated that further assessments are needed to get a definitive diagnosis of gangrene.” The resident was sent to the emergency room for an evaluation of “possible gangrene, but that group of surgeons was not working that day.” Instead of ruling out gangrene, the resident was just sent back “to the facility the same day with a diagnosis of Osteomyelitis.”

  • Failure to Apply Wound Dressings Appropriately According to a Physician’s Order:

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 12/23/2010, a surveyor noted that “the facility failed to properly document the wound dressing dates for the sacral and right buttocks wounds on [a resident]. This notation is in response that the nursing staff inappropriately applied wound dressings and “change the sacral wound dressing on 12/19/10 but did not change the buttocks wound dressing. However, during the wound treatment observation on 12/22/10, there was only one dressing for both the sacral and buttocks wounds which was dated 12/18/10.”

Client Reviews
Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case. In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld. Michonne Proulx
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
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
Jonathan helped my family heal and get compensation after our child was suffered a life threatening injury at daycare. He was sympathetic and in constant contact with us letting us know all he knew every step of the way. We were so blessed to find Jonathan! Giulia
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa
