Concerning Findings Regarding Patient Care At Atrium Health Care Center

According to data from nursing home surveys conducted by the Illinois Department of Health other agencies, there have been numerous episodes of poor patient care at Atrium Health Care Center which can be construed as nursing home negligence. Our nursing home attorneys reviewed data compiled by ProPublica and found the following conditions that can be construed as nursing home negligence:

  • Failure to perform background checks on newly hired staff:  “Eight staff members were hired from 10/11 until 4/12 without background checks.  E11 (office manager) stated on 4/12/12 at 11:00 AM, that E5, E7, E8, and E9 were new graduates from a certified nurse aide program and that they had not taken the nurse aide exam as of yet. E11 further stated that it is the policy to check all new employees on the healthcare workers registry prior to hiring.”
  • Failure to develop a complete care plan that meets all of a resident’s needs: “R1 has a diet order of double portions on physician’s order [REDACTED]. Care plan dated 2/15/12 documents as a problem resident is on a weight reduction program, potential for weight gain and receiving double portion for weight maintenance. The goal is for resident to lose 2-3 lbs per month. On 4/12/12 at 11:00am Z2 (Dietician/Consultant) stated not sure when or why the order of double portion was written. Z2 stated resident shouldn’t be on double portion because R1 is on a weight reduction program. Z2 also stated resident wants to lose weight.”

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.
★★★★★
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.
★★★★★
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.
★★★★★
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!
★★★★★
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.
