Disturbing Findings Regarding Patient Care at Central Baptist Village

A survey conducted on the level of care provided to patients admitted into the Central Baptist Village, by the Illinois Department of Health, showed that patients experienced periods of poor care and abuse during their stay. The nursing home attorneys of Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC reviewed the survey reports of ProPublica and discovered the following episodes which could be construed as nursing home negligence:

  • Failure to implement interventions to prevent falls: “According to R3’s 72 Hour Admission follow up dated 5/14/10, at 8 PM, R3 was in a wheelchair and that she has an unsteady gait when walking. It indicated that R3 was agitated during supper and that Haldol 2 mg was given by mouth. Furthermore, R3’s nurses notes under Day 2 after 5/13/10 admission indicated also that at 11 AM, R3 “refuses to stay in the wheelchair, will get up without walker, gait unsteady at times.” When E5 was interviewed on 7/8/10 at 2:40 PM, E5 said that on 5/16/10, she was serving other residents in the 1st floor dining room while R3 was sitting behind E5. E5 continued that she turned around when she heard R3 hit the non-carpeted floor of the 1st floor dining room, and saw R3 on the floor. E5 said that there was no alarm triggered, nor was there an alarm in R3’s wheelchair. E5 further added that R3 was using an alarm in the wheelchair because R3 is confused and that R3 would try to stand without calling for assistance. E5 said that previously, R3 would trigger the alarm each time she would stand up from her chair. Aside from the interventions like making sure that the wheelchair is locked and having R3 in restorative program since care plan for fall risk was started on 4/7/10, there were no written additional interventions in the care plan to address R3’s risk for falls, since coming back from the hospital on [DATE], especially that during this time, R3 is now more wheelchair bound.  This resulted to R3 falling on 5/16/10 and sustaining a left hip fracture.”
  • Failure to provide proper care to residents with catheters: “On 6/24/10, R2’s penis was noted with a ventral split from the urethra to the base of his penis of about 3 inches split. R2’s indwelling catheter is on and in place. However, R2’s catheter leg holder or strap was not properly connected and was not holding the catheter tubing in place, putting it at risk from accidental pulling during care and movement.”
  • Failure to properly transfer residents: “Review of R4’s care plan dated 7-3-12 denotes resident (R4) is noted to require more assistance with activities of daily living and mobility. She is noted to be totally dependent to staff with activities of daily living and mobility and is observed with less energy. Interventions: Assist resident (R4) with all activities of daily living. Two person extensive assist with total mechanical lift transfer. Interview with E6 (Certified Nurse Assistant) on 8-9-12 at 3:45 PM states she and another CNA lifted R4 from the wheel chair to the shower chair. E6 states she did not use the total mechanical lift because she did not want to get the total mechanical lift pad wet. E6 states she washed R4 then she and another CNA (E8) lifted up R4 from the shower chair and put her back in the wheel chair. E6 states she rolled R4 in her wheelchair to her room and then used the total mechanical lift to put R4 in the bed for the night on 8-6-12. R4 nurses notes dated 8-7-12 at 9:00 AM denotes R4 was calling out the whole night complaining of pain when repositioned, noted swelling left hip. Doctor notified and X-ray ordered of left hip, thigh and knee. R4 nurse notes dated 8-7-12 at 6:00 PM denotes X-ray results to left leg with femur fracture with order for ortho referral, keep leg immobilized.”
  • Failure to notify physician of a significant change in condition: “Evidence indicate that R1 on 3-19-10 at 4:00pm had an abnormally low blood pressure of 81/52. At 6:00pm, R1 had a loose bowel movement. At 6:30pm, R1 dinner intake was zero intake; blood pressure 93/52. At 6:00am on 3-20-10, R1 is described as “restless, moaning at times, verbally responsive, skin pale;” R1 stated “I don’t feel well.” Evidence indicates that Z1 was not notified of the abnormally low blood pressure on 3-19-10 at 4:00pm. Between 3-19-10 at 4:00pm and 6:30am on 3-20-10, R1 blood pressure was abnormally low. Interview with E3 (Director of Nursing) on 3-26-10 at 11:00am stated that the physician should have been notified on 3-19-10 of the abnormally low blood pressure. Interview with Z1 on 3-26-10 at 1:00pm stated that she should have been immediately notified of the abnormally low blood pressure on 3-19-10 at 4:00pm. Further record review indicate that R1 had a chronic rash to the groin and buttocks. Review of careplan dated 3-3-10 Nursing-Resident has history of many cardiac problems, as an intervention, it states Charge nurse to monitor resident for any hypotensive reactions-notify MD. This was not done.”

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
