Infection Prevention Staffing

The increasing rates of facility-acquired infections are a growing issue in hospitals and medical centers nationwide. Because of that, the Illinois state law (Code 250.1000) mandates that every hospital must develop and enforce an infection prevention and control program. The measurable data provides a snapshot of the level of infection prevention staffing at every facility in Illinois. As of 12/31/2015, the Illinois Department of Public Health reported that Doctor John Warner Hospital’s measurable results included:

  • Infection Prevention and Control Staff – 1.6 per 100 beds
  • Infection prevention and control staff members who are CIC-certified (certified in infection control) – 0.0 per 100 beds.
Critical Care Nursing Staff

The level of care provided to every patient needing critical care is often dependent on the RN nursing staff ratio. The measurable data represents the total number of hours worked by a facility nurse in the hospital’s critical care unit as determined by the total number of patient days. Currently, the Illinois Department of Public Health determined that the critical care nursing staff hours during the reporting period included:

  • Registered Nurse Nursing Hours in Critical Care – 20.67 hours, which is significantly higher than the Illinois state average of 15.18 hours.
  • All Nurses Nursing Hours in Critical Care – 20.67 hours, which is significantly higher than the Illinois state average of 16.93 hours.
Emergency Department Utilization

The federal government and the state of Illinois maintain data on emergency departments at hospitals and medical centers statewide. This information provides the total number of patients that were admitted to the hospital emergency room. High volumes compared to the size of the location could be an indicator of a lack of primary care due to the ratio of medical professionals to patients seen. For the year 2015, Doctor John Warner Hospital's results of utilizing the emergency department included:

  • 5677 Patients – The total number of emergency department visits
  • 34 Patients – The total number of inpatient emergency department visits
  • 5643 Patients – The total number of outpatient emergency department visits.
Filing a Medical Malpractice Claim

Misdiagnosing a serious life-threatening disease or condition is the most common cause of injury leading to medical malpractice claims. In fact, heart attacks, breast cancer, and colon cancer are the three leading misdiagnosed diseases that occur much more frequently than many patients would expect.

Medical malpractice occurring in a hospital setting can happen when the facility or staff members are negligent in their duties in providing an acceptable standard of care. The standards have been established by the medical industry, the location of the facility in the number of available resources at the hospital.

However, even an outright case of a medical mistake is not always a clear-cut indication that the victim can file a medical malpractice claim. This is because the injured victim has the burden of proving how the negligence occurred and who or what was the direct cause of the injury. As an example, a doctor may have failed to diagnose a patient’s condition in a timely manner by not performing established test to determine or rule out identifying the underlying cause of the patient’s problems. These types of cases are typically easy to prove that negligence, carelessness or recklessness was involved. However, it might take years for a medical device manufacturer that is selling a substandard product (joint replacement or another device) to determine that the product is defective.

Because of the complexities of personal injury cases involving medical malpractice, victims and surviving family members of deceased victims will hire skilled personal injury attorneys with years of experience in these types of cases. After determining the validity and merits of a medical malpractice claim, the lawyer will begin the process of building the case and will notify all potential defendants and file all the necessary paperwork in the appropriate court.

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.
★★★★★
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.
★★★★★
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.
★★★★★
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!
★★★★★
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.
