The Bizarre finding Regarding the Level of Healthcare At Boulevard Care Nursing & Rehab Center

The nursing home survey conducted by the Illinois Department of Health and ProPublica unearthed different situations where the staff of Boulevard Care Nursing and Rehab center, provided inadequate assistance as well as patient abuse. These situation which can be construed as nursing home negligence includes the following situations:

  • Failure to ensure the area is free from hazards and provide adequate supervision to prevent avoidable accidents: “Record review of facility’s final incident report dated 2-18-12 denotes E7(certified nurse assistant – CNA) in room with resident preparing to transfer resident into wheelchair and resident slid off the side of bed landing on her right side. Resident complained of pain to right leg. Medical doctor was notified and gave order to send resident to emergency room. E7 did not wait for help before transferring R1. The facility’s safe lifting and movement of residents policy denotes “Mechanical lifting devices shall be used for any resident needing a two person assist.” This failure resulted in one resident (R1) sustaining a fracture of the right leg.”
  • Failure to develop care plans to prevent new bedsores and promote healing of existing sores: “R2 has a history of skin breakdown and is scored as high risk on the Norton Scale. R2 currently has a stage III pressure sore on the left hip and stage I on the sacral area. The care plan does not address the size, or the treatment being provided. It also does not show if the goals of reducing the size are being met. The plan is not specific to the sizing to effectiveness of treatment. The facility’s TAR (treatment administration record ) dated 04/01/11 – 04/30/11 indicates that R2 has a treatment of [DIAGNOSES REDACTED]. This was a total of 13 treatments missed for this period. E3 (director of nurses), nor E11 could not provide an explanation for the 13 missed treatments to R2’s sacral area.”
  • Failure to report allegations of abuse immediately to the state agency: “During the course of the complaint investigation on 11/4/11 at 10:30 AM, surveyor was approached by R8 reporting an allegation of verbal abuse by a staff member. R8 appeared upset and near tears. E2 presented documentation to the survey team on 11/15/11 at 10:30 AM that indicated that the facility’s initial report was not sent to the department of public health until 11/7/11.”

★★★★★
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
