Concerning Findings Regarding Patient Care at Lexington of Lagrange

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 Lexington of Lagrange:

  • Failure to safely transport residents: “According to the closed medical record, R1 was a [AGE] year old with [DIAGNOSES REDACTED]. According to the medical record and E3 on 2/4/11, 2:45 PM, R1 had to be transported by wheelchair and was pushed by staff. According to E2 on 2/4/11 at 4:30 PM in the conference room, R1 had a habit of dropping her feet down while being pushed in the wheelchair. E2 said that R1’s foot got caught as she was being pushed in the wheelchair on 11/24/10, resulting in R1 falling from the wheelchair before staff could catch her and lacerating the left side of her forehead. R1 was sent to the emergency room for stitches for the laceration of the left forehead. Z1 (family member) stated that he was informed by the nurse on duty at the time of the fall that the wheelchair did not have leg guards on it that day.” Learn about handicapped transportation 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
