Concerning Findings Regarding Patient Care At Church Creek

According to data from nursing home surveys conducted by the Illinois Department of Health and other agencies, there have been numerous episodes of poor patient care at Church Creek which can be construed as nursing home negligence. Our nursing home attorneys reviewed data compiled by ProPublica and found the following conditions that can be construed as nursing home negligence:

  • Insufficient treatment to prevent bedsores “June 27, 2011 (R8) was admitted to the facility. On July 7, 2011, (R8) developed a [MEDICAL CONDITION] pressure ulcer to his mid spine. On August 5, 2011 the pressure ulcer to the spine increased to a [MEDICAL CONDITION] measuring 3.5 x 2.5 x 0.1 centimeters.”
  • Failure to ensure each resident’s drug regimen is free from unnecessary drugs: “Z1(Consultant Pharmacist) documented in pharmacy review report dated July 1, 2011 through July 15, 2011, “REPEATED RECOMMENDATION from 5/11/2011…”, “Please re-evaluate continued use of [MEDICATION NAME] ([MEDICATION NAME]). Rationale for Recommendation – Concurrent use of antipsychotics and [MEDICATION NAME] is listed as CONTRAINDICATED in [MEDICATION NAME]’s product labeling due to an increased risk for developing extrapyramidal reactions (EPS) secondary to [MEDICATION NAME] receptor antagonism. If this therapy is to continue, it is recommended that a) the prescribed document an assessment of risk versus benefit, indicating it continues to be a valid therapeutic intervention.

The water pitcher was on top of the dresser which was 3 feet away from the bed. R6 said, the pitcher is not always filled with fresh water.

The water pitcher was on top of the over-bed table across the room which was by the roommate’s bed and out of reach.”
  • Failure to develop comprehensive care plans for all patients: “August 16, 2011 at 2:25 p.m. during an observation of wound treatment for [DIAGNOSES REDACTED]. August 17, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. and August 18, 2011 at 1:00 p.m. during record review of (R1, R3, R7 and R8) there were no care plans to address the resident’s pressure ulcers August 17, 2011 at 10:20 a.m. during an interview with (E1) Administrator and (E2) Director of Nursing (DON); the facility was not able to provide writer with the care plans that address the pressure ulcers/sores for (R1, R3, R7 and R8).”

Client Reviews

★★★★★
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
★★★★★
