Nursing Home Safety Concerns

All intermediate care facilities in Illinois are regulated by state and federal agencies and must maintain a standard quality of care for every resident under their supervision. However, the dedicated team of nursing home neglect attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC have found numerous complaints, opened investigations and safety concerns involving Canterbury Place. Some of these include:

  • Failure to Ensure That Outside Services Used at the ICF Meet the Needs of the Client

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 01/03/2013 during an annual survey, notations were made of the facility’s failure “to ensure that staff are trained in health and hygiene methods to assure that that outside services meet the needs of each client.” This is in response to a record review involving a 50-year-old male resident’s individual service plan (ISP) dated 2/7/2012. The resident is diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and Anxiety.

Notations indicate that observation of the resident was made while he was “in the recycling area working on pulling toilet paper and putting it in a box.” The resident “was given a foam letter P from the can of sensory items.” The resident threw the foam letter to the floor and was observed picking it up and placing it in his mouth. The observer then asked the registered nurse on duty “if the alphabet letters get cleaned” the nurse replied “that she has clean them. When asked if she cleaned the letter P that fell on the floor prior to giving it back to [the resident, the registered nurse] replied ‘probably not’.”

  • Failure to Provide Residents a Safe Environment

In a summary of deficiencies statements dated 02/11/2014, during an annual certification survey, notations were made of the facility’s failure “to exercise operating directions over the facility when cleaning chemicals were left on the floor of the home’s hallway.” This is in response to a 2/11/2014 morning observation noting that a resident “was in the bathroom standing to the side of the toilet with his pants down to his ankles and the door was open. On the floor of the hallway in front of the bathroom door was a bucket filled with various cans and bottles of cleaning supplies.”

When a member of the staff was confronted about the cleaning products in the bucket, they responded “one had an environmentally friendly label.” An additional bottle was apparently “a vinegar-based product. Then the surveyor picked up a bottle that had ‘bowl cleaner’ on the front of it. On the back where the words, ‘Phosphoric acid – Caution-Keep Out of Reach of Children.’ [The member of the staff] said he was sorry that he would lock them up, which he then did.”

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
