Incidents of Nursing Home Negligence Found at the Manorcare of Rolling Meadows From Surveys Performed at the Facility by State Inspectors

According to the data gathered from the nursing home surveys conducted by the Illinois Department of Health and other survey agencies, there have been noticeable signs of abuse, avoidable patient falls, failure to follow physician’s orders and neglect at the Manorcare of Rolling Meadows, which can be construed as nursing home negligence. On examining the records, our nursing home attorneys discovered the following:

  • Failure to ensure residents are free from abuse: “Nurses note dated 09/09/09 at 6:45a.m. states at 12:30a.m. this writer was informed by CNA that R2’s left third finger looks purplish in color Assessment to the finger done and found the finger is swollen and purplish in color. R2 denies pain, but unable to bend and said ‘this is my bad hand and these fingers were like this even before this happened. On 09/09/09 E2 initiated an investigation of incident involving R2. On 09/09/09 at 12p.m. E2 obtained a statement by R2. Statement reads; This was done to me by two female CNA’s, one of them was E6. They were twisting and wiggling my finger. They said to me “you think you are strong but we are stronger.” When asked if the CNA’s were trying to help her she said “no they were trying to harass me.” Results of final investigation report dated 09/11/09 by E1 (Administrator) states; On 09/09/09 R2 reported to staff that several days earlier her hand had been pushed back by staff members while providing care. At the time of the report R2 was unable to determine the date that the incident occurred. Staff member who R2 identified was suspended (E6). Upon investigation it was learned that another CNA (E4) had tied down R2 wrists during care. Based upon witness statements and E4’s own statement it was determined that the allegation of abuse is founded and E4 was terminated from employment.”
  • Failure to monitor residents at risk of falls: “When admitted to the facility, R1 was assessed as a risk for fall due to weakness, impaired balance and mobility, history of fall, brain tumor with seizure prophylaxis. R1 was also identified as hard of hearing, blind in the left eye and was forgetful. Physical therapy evaluation dated 6/12/09 showed that R1 required maximum assistance with 2 people’s physical assists for transferring from sit to stand, to bed, wheelchair and toilet. On 8/11/09 at 2:15 P.M., E2 (Director of Nursing) stated that R1 had a fall incident on 7/22/09 at 1:00 P.M. in room [ROOM NUMBER]. Per E2, R1 was left alone while on the toilet seat and this was when R1 must have transferred self without assistance that led to the fall incident. As E2 added, R1 should have not been left alone in the toilet since R1 was a high risk for fall due to a compromised medical condition. Considering R1’s medical history with syncopal fall, forgetfulness, weakness and brain tumor with significant mass affect with seizure prophylaxis, R1’s care plan showed no specific and individualized plan of care in placed to ensure that there was an appropriate assistance and monitoring to address fall prevention.”
  • Failure to ensure administration of medication is complete: “Z4 stated on 4/26/12 at 2:30 PM, that on 1/15/12 a pill was observed in a cup on R7’s bedside table. Z4 further stated that several pills were observed underneath R7’s bed. Z4 stated that the above incident was shown to the nurse on duty and reported to the director of nursing. E9 (nurse) stated on 4/27/12 at 3:15 PM, that on 1/15/12 during the morning medication pass E9 observed R7 placing all of his medication in his mouth. E9 further stated that she, E9 placed a cup of water for R7 to swallow the pills on R7’s bedside table and left R7’s room. E9 further stated that she did not ensure that R7 had swallowed the medication before leaving the room. Facility policy “Medication Administration: Medication Pass” documents that the nurse should remain with the patient until administration of the medication is complete then document the medication in the medication administration report.”
  • Failure to follow physician orders: “On 4/1/10 at 11:00 am R3’s blood glucose was 272 milligram per deciliter (mg/dL). There was no entry on the MAR to indicate that R3 received the sliding scale Insulin. R3 should have received 6 units of Insulin.”

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.
★★★★★
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.
★★★★★
Jonathan helped my family heal and get compensation after our child was suffered a life threatening injury at daycare. He was sympathetic and in constant contact with us letting us know all he knew every step of the way. We were so blessed to find Jonathan!
★★★★★
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.
