Currently, Jerseyville Manor maintains an overall two out of five available rating in the Medicare star rating comparative analysis system. This includes three out of five stars for staffing issues, two out of five stars for both health inspections and quality measures. The Jersey County nursing home neglect attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers have found various deficiencies and safety concerns at this facility that include:

  • Failure to Investigate and Report Any Allegation of Abuse

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 03/31/2015, a complaint investigation against the facility was opened for its failure to "immediately report potential misappropriation of controlled substances to the Administrator, Survey Agency, and Police.” The state investigator also noted the facility’s failure “to immediately suspend the employee suspected of the misappropriation. These failures have the potential to affect four [residents] reviewed for medication control.”

    The findings by the state investigator involved a 03/24/2015 computer Generated Narcotic Report documenting that 35 residents at the facility “have orders for narcotic medications.” Interviews were conducted at the facility with three Licensed practical nurses and a Registered Nurse “on 03/24/2015, verifying their concerns of [the Assistant Director of Nursing] using floor nurse keys to get into the lock narcotic boxes and destroying narcotics without a witness.” The three LPNs and the Registered Nurse all stated that there concerns with the assistant director of nurses “were not reported to the Administrator.

    It was noted as of 11:00 AM on 03/26/2015 that the Assistant Director of Nursing “was not suspended until 03/17/2015 at around 10 AM.” The Assistant was interviewed as a part of the investigation and stated that “the Administrator let me [attend] a meeting that started at 6:30 AM and then I went to my office to work on charting for a while before [the Administrator] suspended me.”

    The facility’s Administrator verified the Assistant Director of Nursing was not suspended until that date and stated that the Assistant was allowed to attend the meeting that morning and that “there was a chance that [the Assistant] could have come to the facility on 03/14/2015 through 03/16/2015, even though [the Assistant] was not scheduled to work.”

    The Administrator also stated “I don’t know what policy I would follow with the suspicion of drug diversion” and also stated that “misappropriation of narcotics is a criminal act [...and that the Assistant] is stealing from the resident. I probably should have reported this incident to the Survey Agency.”

  • Failure to Provide Adequate Services and Care to Ensure a Resident Maintains Their Highest Well-Being

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 02/24/2015, the state investigator noted the facility’s failure “to provide accurate assessment and timely intervention for a fractured upper arm.” The investigator also noted the facility’s failure “to properly assess, monitor and ensure medication as ordered is administered to address the pain related to the fracture.” The failure by the nursing staff at Jerseyville Nursing Home involved one resident “reviewed for injuries of unknown origin.”

    As a part of the investigation, a review was completed of the resident’s February 2015 Physician Order Sheet (POS) revealing that the resident was prescribed Acetaminophen 325 milligrams, two tablets, as needed for pain every four hours along with morphine concentrate every two hours as needed for pain.

    However, the investigator reviewed the resident’s February 2015 Pain Medication Administration Record the documented the resident “did not receive any pain medications on 02/18/2015. The MAR (Medication Administration Record) did not document [the resident] was assessed for pain or was offered pain medication [on that date].” In addition, there was “no documentation on the resident’s pain severity, frequency and periodic monitoring of pain status [on that date].”

★★★★★
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
