Concerning Discoveries Regarding Patient Care at Lee Manor

According to data from nursing home surveys conducted by the Illinois Department of Health other agencies, there have been numerous episodes of poor patient care at Lee Manor which can be construed as nursing home negligence. Our nursing home attorneys reviewed data compiled by ProPublica and found the following conditions that can be construed as nursing home negligence:

  • Failure to implement safety measures to prevent falls: “The facility incident report dated 1-22-10 notes: at 7:45PM E4 (nurse’s aide) was transferring R4 from the wheelchair to the bed and R4’s knees buckled and R4 lost her balance. E4 than lowered R4 to the floor. Review of the hospital records dated 1-22-10 notes R4 has a tibial fracture from a fall. Review of R4’s Minimum Data Set ((MDS) dated [DATE] notes: transfer for R4 is extensive assistance with two plus persons for physical assist. E4 stated he transferred R4 without assistance.”
  • Failure to keep residents safe from significant medication errors: “When interviewed on 3/25/10 at 12:40 P.M., E4 (nurse) stated that she had administered R1 with two kinds of insulin (Humalog 4 units and [MEDICATION NAME] 24 units) on 2/ 27/10 at around between the hour of 6:30 A.M. to 7:00 A.M. E4 also stated that she did not served R1 with some food or breakfast after the two insulin were administered. E4 also stated that at around 7:30 A.M., paramedics were called by morning staff because R1 has a hypoglycemic reaction.”
  • Failure to provide working call light systems: “During the environmental tour on 04/27/10 at 10:30am, on the first floor accompanied by E3 (director of maintenance) in the first floor shower room, all of the call lights were found not to be working. The call light in the bathroom and all three shower stalls are not working. The shower room is used by all 28 residents who reside on the first floor.”
  • Failure to monitor residents with wandering tendencies: “The nurses notes denoted on 01/19/12 at 5:00pm: “observed patient on the floor in the hallway. States felt dizzy and fell on the floor”. On 01/19/12 at 9:30pm: “received call from 3rd floor nurses station. Resident was visiting and fell in the hallway. Complaining excruciating pain to lower back- 9/10 on scale from 0 to 10. Unable to extended right lower extremity. State that must be hitting her head when she fell. Sent patient to hospital for further evaluation and treatment”. On 01/20/12 at 8:00am: “Called hospital – resident is admitted with [DIAGNOSES REDACTED]. Further review of the nurses notes denote resident was residing on the 4th floor. R18 was also a wanderer and had on an electronic monitoring device. The Fall Risk Assessment dates 07/5/11 and 11/9/11 for R18. The score was total 8 (total score of 10 or above represents high risk). There were no risk re-assessments or assessment for the cause of R18’s falls.”
  • Failure to have a 5% or lower medication error rate: “R10’s blood glucose measured 193 mg/dl at 11:30am. The sliding scale order states that [MEDICATION NAME] 2U was to be given. E3 (nurse) administered pre-meal dose of [MEDICATION NAME] 15U at 11:30AM, but did not administer the sliding scale dose. When asked about why the sliding scale dose was not given, E3 stated that she waits until after the resident has eaten lunch to administer the dose “because that way she knows that he has eaten.”

★★★★★
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
