Attorneys for Patients Mistreated at Lake Park Center

Lake Park CenterFamilies are often tormented when it is time to place an elderly loved one in a nursing home. At many facilities, the lack of quality training, minimal supervision or overcrowding puts nursing home residents in jeopardy. In some situations, the resident will wander away from the facility undetected only to be found later injured or dead. Sadly, the Waukegan nursing home abuse attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers have handled many cases in Illinois where residents have been victimized by the negligent actions and careless disregard of the nursing staff.

Our legal team serves as advocates for every resident in Illinois nursing homes. We publish the most current up-to-date information that specifies ongoing investigations, safety concerns, quality of treatment provided and filed complaints against nursing facilities, assisted-living homes and healthcare centers statewide. This information can be used to determine the best possible facility to place a loved one who requires quality skilled nursing care.

Healthcare Facility Resident Safety Concerns

This includes two out of five stars for staffing, three out of five stars for health inspections and five out of five stars for quality measures.

However, the Waukegan nursing home neglect attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers have found numerous open investigations, filed complaints and safety concerns involving Lake Park Center that include:

  • Failure to Provide a Safe, Clean Environment for Residents

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 03/01/2007, a notation was made in an annual licensure and certification survey that indicates the facility “failed to provide sufficient ventilation in second floor dining room which would allow adjacent non-smoking areas to be smoke-free.” This is in response to an observation where “approximately 20 residents were observed to be smoking cigarettes” during a designated smoking time. However, it was observed that “the room to have a thick fog-like appearance, the odor and the smoke was permeating out of the room into the nurses station and other common areas.”

  • Failure to Investigate and Report an Allegation of Abuse

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 05/30/2013, a complaint investigation was opened over the facility’s failure “to thoroughly investigate and report injury of unknown origin to the state agency.” This investigation is in response to two incidences were nursing staff “did not interview any staff or other residents regarding [a resident’s] injury.”

  • Failure to Supervise a Resident Who Left the Facility Undetected

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 09/19/2006, an incident report was opened concerning the facility’s failure “to supervise [a resident] who left the facility without the facility staff knowing that [the resident] had left.” This is in response to an investigation were nursing staff and three other residents were interviewed regarding the resident “leaving the facility. All stated that the front door is guarded, and the only residence with Clarence can leave the building.” The nurse in charge stated that the resident “must have left the facility when the receptionist was talking to someone and did not see [the resident] go out with other residents or visitors. The front door is not alarmed when the receptionist is on duty. All other door alarms were checked and were working.”

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. 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

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. Lisa, Avvo User
