Attorneys for Injured & Neglected Patients at Campbell Court

The use of antipsychotic medications in long-term care homes is highly regulated by state and federal agencies. Unfortunately, not all follow established procedures and protocols, and fail to reduce or eliminate the use of psychotropic drugs, which can be highly detrimental to the health and well-being of the resident. Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers represent individuals taking unnecessary psychotropic medications while residing at Illinois long-term care (LTC) facilities like Campbell Court.

Campbell Court

This LTC Center is a 4-certified-bed ‘for profit’ Home providing services to residents of Jacksonville and Morgan County, Illinois. The Facility is located at:

426 E. Douglas
Jacksonville, Illinois 62650

Jacksonville Long Term Care Home Resident Safety Concerns

The LTC home regulatory agency routinely updates their statewide nursing facility database system. The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH – ltc.dph.illinois.gov) data contains a historical list of opened investigations, incident inquiries, filed complaints, safety concerns and health violations of every facility in each county.

The Morgan County abuse and neglect attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers have reviewed the deficiencies, safety concerns and health violations at this LTC home that include:

  • Failure to Immediately Notify the Appropriate State Agency of a Resident’s Change of Condition That Required Hospitalization

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 07/01/2015, a state investigator noted the nursing home’s failure to “report in a timely manner an incident of hospitalization for [a resident] … who was hospitalized with abdominal distention resulting in a hernia repair.”

    The deficient practice was first noted in the state investigator’s findings after reviewing a resident’s June 2015 physician’s order sheet identifying the individual as someone who “functions at a profound level of individuals with intellectual disabilities.” The resident’s Change of Condition Form revealed that “on 05/31/2015, [the resident] was taken to the local hospital where [the resident] was diagnosed with a hernia.”

    By law, the facility must report a significant change in the resident’s condition to the Illinois Department of Public Health within 24 hours. The investigator conducted an interview with the Facility Representative on 07/01/2015 who confirmed that “the report to the Illinois Department of Public Health from the incident on 05/31/2015 was not sent to IDPH until 06/02/2015.

    The facility was reminded that they “must ensure that all allegations of mistreatment, neglect, and abuse, as well as injuries of unknown origin, be reported immediately to the Administrator or to other officials in accordance with State law through the established procedures.”

  • Failure to Ensure the Resident’s Drug Regimen Is Free from Unnecessary Medications

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 05/13/2014, an Illinois state surveyor noted the facility’s failure to “ensure a reduction plan for medication used to control behavior was in place for [a resident] who takes medications to control behaviors.” The deficient practice involved a 49-year-old female resident “who functions in the profound level of intellectual disability.”

    The state investigator reviewed the resident’s medical records including the facility’s 04/21/2014 Behavior Management/Resident Rights Committee that states that the resident “takes sertraline (Zoloft)… every morning and every evening for a diagnosis of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.” The policy involving behavior management under the section titled: Reduction Plan reads:

    “Zoloft is at a therapeutic level and should not be reduced this time because she is stable.”

    The physician signed orders for the resident to receive the medication at 100 milligrams every morning and 50 milligrams every evening through the month of April. An interview with the facility’s Quality Intellectual Disabilities Professional (QIDP) on 05/13/2014 confirmed: “there are no plans in place decreases Zoloft for [the resident].”

  • Failure to Monitor a Significant Weight Loss from Male Resident at the Facility

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 07/31/2012, a formal complaint was opened against the facility by a state investigator for its failure to “monitor weight loss for one individual [at the facility].” The deficient practice was first noted in the state investigator’s findings involving a nonverbal, blind, ambulatory male “who functions in the profound range of mental retardation.”

    A review of the resident’s July 2011 Nutritional Assessment revealed that the resident’s height was five foot eight inches. However, no weight was recorded. The document stated that the ideal body weight is 154 pounds and that the resident “is on a general/regular diet.” However, a review of the resident’s Quarterly Nutritional Progress Notation states that in January 2012, the resident’s “current weight was 139 pounds [...and] a year ago, [the resident] weighed 146 pounds, which is slightly below the ideal weight range.”

★★★★★
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
