  • Failure to Provide a Residential Environment Free of Accident Hazards

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 02/17/2015 a complaint investigation was opened against Heritage Health Chillicothe noting a failure “to remove wet gloves during dressing.” This is in response to a 2/14/15 incident when the resident was dressing. The CNA attempted to “change residents top, resident pulled away from the CNA (Certified Nurses Aide) due to the way the CNA was holding residents arm, CNAs arm slipped and elbow hit resident in the left orbital area.” This occurred while the CNA “was providing incontinence care to [the resident]” and changing the resident’s shirt. The resident was later observed to have “a large greenish-purple bruise on her left cheek.” Additionally, even though the resident was injured, it was noted that “the staff did not do neuro- checks as per facility policy.”

    In a second summary statement of deficiencies dated 01/15/2015, an investigation was opened against the facility’s failure “to implement fall interventions, during a transfer, for [a resident] reviewed for falls.” This is in response to a resident falling “during a transfer with one staff from the toilet to the wheelchair, hitting the right side of the four head and resulting in a laceration to the right side of the four head. The same report documents, ‘restorative nurse reassessed transfers and [the resident] changed to a two person assist’.”

Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case.

★★★★★
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
★★★★★
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. Daniel Kaim, Avvo User
