Caseyville Nursing and Rehabilitation Center

Many nursing home residents in Illinois lack the capacity to reposition their body without assistance to prevent the development of pressure sores. Without routine repositioning, bony areas on the body can quickly develop open wounds caused by pressure that restricts the flow of blood and the delivery of much-needed oxygen and nutrients. Unfortunately, the Caseyville elder abuse attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers have represented many residents who have suffered from unnecessary life-threatening bedsores caused by the negligent actions of the nursing staff.

Bedsores can quickly develop in as little as two hours if the resident’s body is not repositioned to remove pressure from the skin and underlying tissue. Without immediate action, a newly developed bedsore can quickly degrade to a life-threatening decubitus ulcer (pressure ulcer; pressure wound; pressure sore). Medicare provides nursing staff with valuable guidelines and proven protocols to ensure that every avoidable bedsore is prevented. Any failure by the staff members could make the nursing facility legally liable and financially responsible to the victim.

  • Failure to Ensure That Residents Receive Proper Treatment to Prevent the Development of a New Bedsore or Allow an Existing Bedsore to Heal

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 04/14/2015, the state investigator noted the facility’s failure “to provide timely turning, repositioning, and pressure sore prevention measures for [five residents at the facility] reviewed for pressure sores.” One incident involved the resident documented with a moderate cognitive impairment that requires “extensive assistance of one-person physical assistance with mobility and transfer, lower extremity functional limitation in range of motion and at risk for pressure sore development.”

    The investigator noted that the resident’s 05/20/2015 Care Plan documents that “he is at risk for skin breakdown with interventions to monitor his skin and to turn and reposition every two hours while he is either in bed or in his wheelchair.” Upon observation, it was noted that the resident was found “sitting up in his wheelchair without the benefit of turning and repositioning from 8:55 AM to 11:00 AM on 04/08/2015, based on 5-10 minute observation intervals.” A Certified Nursing Assistant providing them care on that date stated at 11:10 AM that the resident “had been up in his chair since 8:15 AM or 8:30 AM” that morning.

    At 11:00 AM, two Certified Nursing Assistants transferred the resident “from a chair to the bed [… while removing the resident’s] soiled adult diaper exposing a deep red and white creasing on his buttocks, perineal area, lower back and bilateral upper thighs. His buttocks were deeply creased with multiple triangle patterns from his adult diaper [...and] his left and right knees were deeply reddened, both measuring approximately 4.0 centimeters by 5.0 centimeters round.” The investigator noted that the resident’s “creasing and the redness remained from 11:00 AM to 11:15 AM at which time [both Certified Nursing Assistant] place a blanket over [the resident without placing] any padding between his knees.”

    The investigator noted that the actions of the nursing staff at Caseyville Nursing and Rehabilitation Center failed to follow the facility’s November 2010 policy titled Pressure Ulcer Risk Assessment and Prevention Policy and Procedure that reads in part:

    “Prevention of skin breakdown is the responsibility of all direct caregivers. The facility will initiate interventions designed to reduce the risk of pressure ulcer development. The following interventions listed herein are included as an overall of the generally accepted nursing practices determined to proliferate for pressure ulcer risk reduction [including] pressure reducing devices designed to reduce pressure or offload pressure from body areas [...and] padding body surfaces and individualized turning and repositioning schedules.”

Client Reviews
Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case.

★★★★★
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
