Neglect, abuse and lack of concern at nursing facilities can cause sickness, injuries or death to the residents in nursing homes. Neglect is often overlooked by staff members, supervisors and administrators who tend to look the other way. Without quick intervention, usually through a family member or an attorney, the elderly, ill, disabled or rehabilitating resident can develop life-threatening infections, bedsores or injuries. This is often the direct result of a lack of caregiving training, minimal staffing or other serious issues occurring inside in the nursing home.
Our team of nursing home abuse case attorneys understands the heart-wrenching decisions that must be made when family members place a loved one in the care of others. Because of that, we post publicly available information involving nursing homes, assisted living centers and rehabilitation facilities throughout Illinois. This information allows families to make the best informed decision possible to ensure that their loved one is not injured or harmed while under the care of doctors, registered nurses, certified nursing assistance and nursing aides.Claremont-Hanover Park

- Failure to Maintain Sanitary Conditions at the Facility:
In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 12/22/2015, a complaint is opened against the facility for its failure “to implement fall interventions as listed in the plan of care for [a resident].” This is in response to a 12/16/15 incident where the resident “was awake, alert and able to make his needs known … He is alert to self and confused at times.” A registered nurse on duty states that the resident “should have his alarm attached when he is sitting in his side chair” which was not attached at the time of observation.
In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 08/07/2015, during an annual licensure and certification survey, notations were made of the facility’s failure to “inform and obtain consent prior to the use of antipsychotic medication.” This is in response to a resident admitted on 07/01/2015 with a diagnosis of “Post Stroke, Dysphasia and Aphasia.” Notations are made that the resident was “in bed, sleeping, no apparent distress noted …… Ativan was given to the resident at bedtime per daughter request ….”
In a separate incident, [a family member] “was upset because she was informed on 07/03/2015 that [the resident] was given a sedative on 07/02/2015. [The family relative] said they did not want [the resident] to receive a sedative.
In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 09/18/2014, a notation is made of the facility’s failure “to properly sanitize food contact surfaces during food preparation.” In addition, the facility failed to maintain the sanitizing compartment of the three compartment sink. This failure has the potential to cause foodborne illnesses in all 92 residents who receive oral diets from the facility’s kitchen.”
