Attorneys for Patients Mistreated at Aperion Care Elgin

Often times, family members face the gut-wrenching decision to place a loved one in an assisted living center or nursing home in the hopes that the facility can provide quality care. Unfortunately, many nursing facilities are understaffed, lack proper supervision and training or are mismanaged. As a result, the level of neglect and abuse at the facility can quickly rise to epidemic proportions and victimize some of our most vulnerable citizens.

Our nursing home abuse attorneys recognize that family members need valuable information to make informed decisions when placing a loved one in a nursing home. Because of that, we publish the most current publicly available data here on safety concerns, open investigations and filed complaints at nursing facilities all throughout Illinois.

Nursing Home Resident Safety Concerns

Through its website portal www.Medicare.gov, the federal government continually releases publicly available information on nursing facilities nationwide. Currently, Aperion Care Elgin is classified as a Special Focus Facility (SFF) due to a high number of serious safety concerns, opened investigations and filed complaints. This is because the facility maintains an overall two stars out of five available stars under the federal government rating system. This includes four stars for both quality measures and staffing, and one star for health inspections.

The nursing home neglect attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers have found numerous safety concerns. Some of these include:

  • Failure to Provide a Secure Environment to Avoid Elopement from the Premises:
  • In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 07/22/2015, a complaint investigation was opened against the facility for their failure “to supervise a resident with dementia to prevent the resident from leaving the facility grounds.” This is in response to an incident involving elopement from the property occurring on July 18, 2015 concerning a resident noted as having a high wandering risk assessment. The notes indicate that a staff member “entered resident room to administer her medication and discovered resident was not in her room. Bathroom, smoking area and units were searched. Director of Nursing notified, power of attorney notified, family called that resident was missing.” Police later contacted the individual who had returned to her home on her own.

  • Failure to Provide Adequate Staffing to Meet the Needs of Residents:
  • In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 03/05/2015, a complaint investigation is opened against the facility for their failure “to have sufficient nursing staff to provide nursing care to residents as needed.” This is in response to a resident complaining “that they do not have enough staff, it keeps happening.” The resident indicated that her “call light was on visible from the hallway. [The resident] said that she had to urinate three times in the same diaper and is now soaking wet.”

  • Failure to Properly Investigate/Report Allegations of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment:
  • In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 12/17/2015, a complaint investigation is opened concerning the facility’s failure “to notify local law enforcement during an allegation of sexual abuse of two residents. The facility also failed to include one [of the resident’s] in the report to the state agency, Illinois Department of Public Health. This case involves one resident fondling “the breast of [2 other residents]. The Director of Nursing (DON) indicated that she “interviewed [the resident] at the time he denied that the incident happened and he was only bragging.” The DON noted that the case “was not reported to Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) or the police at the time” in direct violation of state and federal laws.

★★★★★
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.
