Troubling Findings Regarding Patient Care at Holy Family Villa

A survey conducted by the Illinois department of health and other private health Inspection organizations (ProPublica), unearthed numerous episodes of poor patient care and laxity that could be labeled under the term of nursing home negligence. Our nursing home attorneys were contacted to review these findings and we came up with the following facts/conditions that highlighted the possibility of negligence on the part of Abington of Glenview:

  • Failure to investigate potential abuse or mistreatment: “Review of the occurrence report for R23 dated September 10, 2011 documents that R23 became combative while E25 (Certified Nursing Aide) was attempting to get R23 dressed. The report stated that R23 got 2 skin tears to top of both hands. No explanation as to how these skin tears came about. E2 (Director of Nursing) documented a short investigation note stating that R23 did not like being care for by male employees. However, the employee (E25) that was providing care was a female and there was no mention as to how these abrasions that required steri-strips took place. The follow up of this incident did not include an interview with E25 explaining as to how R23 sustained the injuries to both hands. Review of the occurrence report for R22, dated September 18, 2011 documents that R22 reported being hit by another resident. The follow up of this incident did not include an interview, or identify the other resident involved. On December 29, 2011 at 11:25 am. E2 stated this incident was not investigated as abuse because the resident that hit R22 was confused. These follow ups of these incidents includes brief statement by E2 only, no aggressive investigation or interviews of staff or other residents involved.”
  • Failure to adequately investigate and report injuries of unknown origin: “Review of the facilities occurrence reports during the survey reveals an incident on September 18, 2011 at 10:15am where it was reported to E35, (Licensed Practical Nurse) that R43 had a blue and purple bruise on inner right breast. E2 (Director of Nursing) documented that R43 “thinks she dropped something on her breast.” No documentation of further investigation noted. On December 29, 2011 at 11:25am, E2 stated that this was all the investigating that was done on this matter. Further review of the occurrence reports reveals an incident on May 26, 2011 at 6:00am where it was reported to E36( Licensed Practical Nurse) that R44 had dark discolored areas in both cheeks of inner Anus. E2 documented that R44 said “I have no butt” and denies anyone doing harm. No documentation of further investigation noted. On December 29, 2011 at 11:25am, E2 stated that this was all the investigating that was done on this matter.”
  • Failure to ensure the safety of residents during tube feedings: “On 12/27/11 at 9:30am, E24 (Certified Nursing Assistant) was providing morning care to R2. E24 stated that E24 had just given R2 a complete bed bath. R2 was lying flat in bed with R2 ‘s feeding tube connected and infusing while E24 was dressing R2.”
  • Failure to prevent serious medication errors: “On 12/28/11 at 11:48am, E12 (Licensed Practical Nurse) performed a finger stick blood glucose reading (BGM) for R5. The reading of the BGM was 446. E12 stated that the physician ordered 6 units of [MEDICATION NAME] to be administered. E12 documented the following order on the Physician’s Order sheet: BGM (Blood Glucose Monitoring) “446”, give 6 units of [MEDICATION NAME]. After drawing the Insulin into the syringe, E12 stated the amount drawn up was 6 units. As E12 was about to administer the Insulin, E12 was asked to verify the amount in the syringe. E12 verified the amount of Insulin with two surveyors. The amount of Insulin in the syringe was 7 units.” For information on medication errors click here.

★★★★★
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
