Concerning Findings Regarding Patient Care At ManorCare at Arlington Heights

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 ManorCare at Arlington Heights 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 render incontinent care as scheduled “On 3/29/12, R1 was observed sitting in his wheelchair, and with a fecal odor from 10:15 AM to 1:45 PM. No toileting or incontinent care was made during that length of time, which E5 confirmed. At 1:45 PM, E5 (Certified Nursing Assistant/ CNA) transferred R1 to bed for incontinent care. R1 had a huge bowel movement that already overflowed from his incontinent brief. R1’s buttocks, groins and scrotum were all red and raw looking. R1 stated that there’s a burning sensation on those parts of his body.”
  • Failure to implement effective fall protection interventions: “On 3/29/12, review of R4’s chart indicated that R4 fell on [DATE], 12/16/12, 12/21/12 and 12/24/12. All incidents happened inside R4’s room unwitnessed. Progress note [REDACTED]. Despite those interventions, R4 continued to fall. On 3/30 /12 at 10:40 AM, E2 (Nurse Supervisor) stated, R4 came from another rehab facility but R4 did not improved over there. When R4 came to this facility R4 started to get better functionally. R4 received physical and occupational therapy. Because R4 improved with her mobility, R4 was getting up by herself, causing her fall incidents. E2 added, facility provided personal alarm, bed sensor, low bed position and moved R4 closer to the nurse station. “
  • Failure to keep the rate of medication errors below 5%: “On 10/18/11 at 11:29am, E13 (Licensed Practical Nurse) administered [MEDICATION NAME] swish and swallow suspension to R1. E13 held the medicine cup at eye level and poured the medication into the cup. E13 stated the amount poured was 5 ml. As E13 was about to administer the medication to R1, E13 was asked to verify the amount poured. Using a 6 ml syringe, E13 drew up the medication which was measured at 4.2 ml. E12 discarded the 4.2 ml and drew up 5 ml of [MEDICATION NAME] into the syringe and administered the medication to R1.”
  • Failure to follow a program that controls and keeps infection from spreading: “On October 17, 2011 during the initial tour at 9:45 am, E5(Certified Nursing Assistant) was in R13’s room changing bed linens. R13 is on contact precaution for, [MEDICAL CONDITION]. Difficle ([MEDICAL CONDITION]). E5 wore a pair of gloves but was not wearing a gown.

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
