Attorneys for Injured & Neglected Patients at Group Home 1

Any allegation or incident involving mistreatment, abuse or neglect occurring in Illinois long-term care centers must be immediately investigated by the facility’s Administrator and reported to the Illinois Department of Health in accordance with care home rules and regulations. Any failure to do so is in direct violation of state and federal laws. Unfortunately, many nursing homes and long-term care centers failed to follow these procedures and protocols and instead choose to report and investigate only those allegations/incidents deemed to be serious and requiring medical attention. Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers represent injured, mistreated and abused patients who reside at Illinois long-term care homes like Beverly Farm Group Home #1.

Godfrey LTC Home Resident Safety Concerns

To ensure the families are fully informed of the services and care that every long-term care facility offers in their community, the state of Illinois routinely updates their comprehensive list of filed complaints, opened investigations, safety concerns, incident inquiries, health violations, and dangerous hazards of Homes statewide. This data can be used to make an informed decision before placing a loved one in a private or government-operated facility.

The Madison County neglect attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers reviewed serious deficiencies, violations, hazards and safety concerns at this long-term care home including:

  • Failure to Ensure Every Resident’s Drug Regimen Is Free from Unnecessary Medications

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 05/29/2015, the state investigator noted a deficient practice of the nursing staff during an incident investigation involving the facility’s failure “to ensure that all medications were administered in compliance with physician’s orders” for multiple residents in the facility.

    The deficient practice affected a 33-year-old female whose IPP (Individual Program Plan) revealed she “functions with a moderate range of individuals with intellectual disabilities” and a diagnosis of “psychotic disorder related to neurological damage.”

    On the afternoon of 03/26/2015, it was reported that a Registered Nurse/Trainer administered “45 milligrams Valproic acid” to a resident at “7:00 AM on 03/17/2015, 03/18/2015, 03/20/2015, 03/22/2015, 03/23/2015 and 03/25/2015; instead of 15 milligrams as ordered. A Medication Error Report was filled out and submitted to the IDPH (Illinois Department of Public Health).”

    There was a separate incident involving a 70-year-old male resident functioning “within the mild range of intellectual disabilities and was diagnosed with diabetes, hyperlipidemia and hypertension as documented in their IPP on 03/18/2015.” At 7:00 AM on 03/30/2015 “it was reported that [the Registered Nurse that the resident received] Benazepril 40 milligrams… on 03/27/2015 at 7:00 AM instead of 80 milligrams as ordered.

    A Medication Error Report was filled out and submitted to the Illinois Department of Public Health.” An additional identical error occurred the following week on 04/04/2015 and a Medication Error Report was filled out and submitted again to the IDPH.

    The state investigator reviewed a resident’s 03/31/2015 Physician Order Sheet (POS) revealing that the resident “functions within the moderate range of intellectual disability.” A 03/04/2015, “it was reported to “the Registered Nurse/Trainer that Provera 10 milligrams not administered to [the resident] on 05/01/2015 as ordered.”

    The state investigator interviewed the facility Quality Intellectual Disabilities Professional (QIDP), the Registered Nurse/Trainer and the facility’s Director of Nursing who “confirmed that these errors had occurred at the facility and submitted the Medication Error Reports to the surveyor.” A review of the March, April, and May MAR (Medication Administration Record) also confirmed these errors.”

    • Failure to Develop, Implement, and Enforce Policies That Protect Residents against Abuse, Mistreatment or Neglect

      In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 05/29/2015, the state investigator noted the facility’s failure “to develop written policies and procedures that prohibit mistreatment, neglect or abuse of [residents].” In addition, the investigator noted the facility’s:

      “Failure to develop and of abuse/neglect policy that directs staff to investigate allegations and not just those deemed “having reasonable cause to believe’ and/or just the peer-to-peer aggression, that the facility determined was willful and required medical treatment.”
      “Failure to develop a policy to report all allegations to the Illinois Department of Public Health is required not only those deemed to be significant incidents, to have reasonable cause to believe, or just the peer-to-peer aggression, that the facility determined was willful and required medical treatment.”

★★★★★
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

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home.
