However, the Pekin Illinois nursing home neglect attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers have located numerous filed complaints, opened investigations and safety concerns involving Hallmark House Nursing Center. Some of these include:

  • A Failure to Provide a Residential Environment Free from Physical Restraints

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 08/13/2014, during an annual licensure and certification survey, a notation was made of the facility’s failure “to assess and monitor the use of side rails for [a resident] reviewed for side rails.” This is in response to the facility’s use of side rails for a resident whose “medical record contained no consent for side rail usage, nor any assessment for the use of side rails.” This is in direct violation of the resident’s rights.

  • Failure to Provide a Residential Environment Free of Accident Hazards:

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 07/0/2013 a complaint investigation was opened due to the facility’s failure “to identify [a resident] reviewed for falls.” This is in response to a resident “transferred by only one staff member, from lying to a sitting position. [The resident] slipped from the bed and received a fractured leg.”

  • Failure to Follow Policies to Prevent the Spread of Infections in the Facility

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 03/06/2008, a complaint investigation was opened against the facility for their failure “to follow their policy on infection control by cohort in a resident infected/colonized with MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) with two other uninfected residents, and by not obtaining a physician’s order for isolation [of another resident] reviewed on isolation.” This is in direct violation of the facility’s policy “titled ‘Confirmation of Isolation’, indicates that a ‘Resident will be placed in isolation per OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) guidelines and a physician’s order.’”

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.
