Hillside Rehabilitation and Care Center

Hillside Rehabilitation and Care Center Nursing homes have a legal and moral obligation to develop an effective care plan to ensure that the resident does not acquire a bedsore (pressure sores; pressure wound; pressure ulcer; decubitus ulcers) while in the facility. Even in unassuming bedsore can quickly develop into an open wound that exposes bone, muscle, and tissue that has the potential of leading to a serious infection of the bone (osteomyelitis) or blood (sepsis). Sadly, the Yorkville elder abuse attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers have handled many cases where the resident suffered a preventable facility-acquired bedsore that led to a serious decline in their health or led to their premature wrongful death.

  • to Provide Residents Adequate Treatment to Prevent the Development of a Pressure Sore or Allow an Existing Pressure Sore to Heal

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 04/24/2015, a notation was made during an annual licensure and certification survey by a state investigator concerning the facility's failure to "conduct a comprehensive pressure sore assessment which includes the analysis of contributing risk factors; the development and implementation of individualized interventions such as repositioning the resident to prevent the development of facility-acquired pressure sores and to promote healing of open wounds.” The deficient practice by the nursing staff at Hillside Rehabilitation Care Center directly affected three residents at the facility “evaluated for the facility-acquired pressure sores.”

    In one incident, the state investigator reviewed a resident’s 04/15/2014 Initial Nursing Admission document that revealed that the resident “had multiple pressure sores, with the largest one on her sacrum [measuring] 3.0 centimeters by 3.0 centimeters surrounded with black eschar” in an unstageable condition. “Her coccyx had a Stage I [pressure sore] with a dressing. On her left center and upper back was a Stage I [pressure ulcer] her left outer foot aspect had a Stage I [bedsore] with addressing. Her right foot had a reddened non-blanchable area on a bony prominence in the outer aspect of her right foot was black and [with a] 1.0 centimeter by 1.5 centimeters” pressure sore in an unstageable condition.

    Six days later, the resident’s 04/21/2015 Wound History Report and 1:30 PM 04/23/2015 observation revealed during the resident’s pressure sore treatment that the resident’s “sacral pressure sore worsened to a stage IV [pressure sore measuring] 2.5 centimeters by 3.0 centimeters by 1.0 centimeters.” The investigator also noted that the resident had developed “a new pressure sore in the facility on 03/02/2015 on her left ischium, and her 04/21/2015 Wound History Report showed the wound worsened to a Stage III [measuring] 2.0 centimeters by 1.5 centimeters by 0.6 centimeters.”

    The investigator noted that the actions of the nursing staff at Hillside Rehabilitation and Care Center failed to follow the facility’s Current Pressure Sore Assessment System that requires the performance of a Braden Scale to determine risk factors and a CAA (Care Area Assessment) “to show the comprehensive assessment. There is no analysis of [the resident’s] risk factors to develop individualized [interventions including] to turn or reposition every two hours and as needed. There is no assessment to show how the facility determined to turn and reposition every two hours [...and upon observation] on 04/21/2015 and 04/23/2015 [the resident] was in her wheelchair for more than two hours.”

★★★★★
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
★★★★★
