Attorneys for Patients Mistreated at Center Home for Hispanic Elderly

The number of elderly individuals residing in nursing facilities has been increasing over the last couple of decades as the aging population moves into the later stages of life. Unfortunately, many residents become victims of mistreatment by the hands of their caregivers and suffer a variety of conditions including poor personal hygiene, malnutrition, dehydration, and the development of facility-acquired bedsores. Many of these health issues when left untreated or unattended can become life-threatening or cause serious additional problems over and above existing health concerns.

Our team of dedicated nursing home abuse attorneys serve as advocates to Illinois nursing home residents to provide protection against mistreatment, abuse and neglect in nursing facilities throughout the state. In addition, we continuously update publicly available information involving safety concerns, investigations and complaints against nursing homes statewide. Many individuals use this valuable information as a tool to make informed decisions of where to place a loved one who requires quality care at the hands of loving caregivers.

The nursing home neglect attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers have found numerous file complaints, opened investigations and safety concerns involving Center Home for Hispanic Elderly. Some of these include:

  • Failure to Maintain a Sanitized Environment:
  • In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 12/11/2015, a complaint investigation is opened against Center Home for Hispanic Elderly in regards to its failure “to ensure common bathroom toilets on the third floor flushed properly. This failure has the potential to affect all 23 women who reside on the third floor.”

    In a separate summary statement of deficiencies dated 10/23/2015, a complaint investigation is opened against the facility for its failure “to have the required amount of sanitizing solution in their three compartment sink. This has the potential to put all 143 residents at risk for foodborne illness.” During observation, a dietary aid at the facility stated “they are using the correct concentration for the quaternary ammonia solution.” However, the dietary aid and the head cook “agree that the test strip color remains the same indicating no sanitizing occurred” during observation.

    In a separate incident on the summary statement of deficiencies dated 10/23/2015 a complaint investigation is opened against the facility for its failure “to implement hand hygiene at two noon meals affecting one resident.” This is partly in response to a 10/21/15 incident where the certified nursing assistants “were serving lunch to residents. No handwashing nor hand sanitizing was used. [1 CNA] picked up dirty trays and stacked them in the food cart. [That CNA] picked up her ID badge that fell on the floor, picked up food from the floor then wiped her hands with paper towel. She also scratched her face and rubbed her arms then served cake to [a resident …]. No handwashing nor hand sanitizing was done between all of these activities.”

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

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, Avvo User
