The Sordid findings on the Level of Patient Health Care received at Lemont Nursing & Rehab Center

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 Lemont Nursing & Rehab Center 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 follow physician order: “The POS (Physician Order Sheet) for R1 for the month of November, 2011, lists an open ended order dated August 16, 2011, for oxygen by nasal cannula at 2 liters per minute on a continuous basis. On November 15, 2011, at 12:45pm, R1 was in the main dining room with no oxygen cannula present in his nares. The oxygen cannula was noted to be hanging on the back of his wheelchair on top of the portable oxygen tank. At this time the portable oxygen tanks flow dial was positioned in the red zone, specifying that the tank is empty.”
  • Failure to administer medication in the proper dosage: “On November 15, 2011 at 12:10 PM, E9 (Licensed Practical Nurse) administered [MEDICATION NAME] 100 mg one tab to R28 by mouth. The POS for the month of November 2011, list [MEDICATION NAME] 50 mg one tab by mouth, once a day at1:00pm. [MEDICATION NAME] is used to treat [MEDICAL CONDITION].”
  • Failure to provide a working call system in the residents’ bathroom : “On 11/16/11 at 12noon during a tour of the Multilink unit shower room accompanied by E3 (director of environmental services), two shower stalls and the toilet/bathroom call light system did network. The call light cord’s for the two shower stalls and the bathroom were activated, the system did not activate; there was no sound at the nurses’ station and the over head light outside of the shower door did not light up.” Read about call light incidents here.
  • Failure to provide appropriate assistance during mechanical lift transfers: “R3 does not remember the date of the incident. However, stated that a CNA got the lift, forced her leg on the lift and her leg started bleeding. According to R3, she was hospitalized and had a surgery on the left leg. R3 stated, “They got about two cups of blood clot from my left leg.” E4 stated that she assisted R3 to get out from the bed, using a sit to stand mechanical lift. She then pushed the said mechanical lift from R3’s bed side (near the window/second bed) to the toilet room (near the room door) and transferred R3 from the mechanical lift to the toilet without any assistance from other staff. The care plan was not individualized to include how many staff should assist R3 during transfers, considering that the resident is obese and would require extensive assistance with transfers based on the MDS.”
  • Failure to provide oxygen therapy to a resident: “R3’s Physical Therapy Evaluation dated 4/24/09 noted that R3 has a history of severe [MEDICAL CONDITION] and was on Oxygen at 6 Liters at home. During 6/22/09 interview, Z1 said that R3 was dropped to the facility from the hospital by the paramedics on 4/29/09 at around 7:30 PM. Z1 continued that she came to the facility afterwards, as she did not go with R3 in the ambulance. Z1 continued that when she arrived at the facility, she found R3 with an Oxygen cannula but without an Oxygen concentrator or tank. Z1 added that she has to call the attention of the nurse who later connected R3 to an Oxygen. Furthermore, Z1 added that the R3’s nurse said to Z1 that she is busy with another resident who had an elevated blood pressure that night. Z1 added she took R3 home that night.”

★★★★★
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
