Concerning Findings Regarding Patient Care at Mid America Care Center

The periodic survey conducted by the Illinois State Department of Health and other private agencies discovered numerous cases of poor patient supervision, inadequate care equipment and abuse which can be construed as nursing home negligence. On reviewing the surveys of ProPublica, the nursing home attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers discovered the following episodes which can be construed as negligence:

  • Failure to notify physician promptly of significant changes in clinical condition of resident: “Referring to nurses note dated 11/25/11 at 9:00am E14 (Nurse) charted change of condition: shortness of breath (SOB), congestion with a nonproductive cough, using accessory muscles and mental status baseline alert. There was no noted documentation of the physician being notified regarding change of condition. On the nurses noted dated 11/25/11 at 11:50am E14 documented R27 had additional change of condition in addition to mention above. R27 was lethargic, respiratory rate 28 per minute and significant SOB. On 11/25/11 at 12:02pm per nurses notes physician was updated regarding R27’s change of condition. Z1 (physician) ordered to have R27 sent to local hospital emergency for evaluation. Referring to hospital records, R27 was admitted to a local hospital on [DATE] at 4:04pm. R27 was intubated and placed on mechanical ventilation in the emergency room (ER) and transferred to the intensive care unit (ICU).”
  • Failure to apply safety devices as ordered to aid in the prevention of falls: “During second day observation on 1/26/11 at 10:05 a.m., observed R10 on the floor in the sitting position in front of his wheelchair. The call light was noted hanging from the wall on the farthest side of the nightstand, next to the bed, on the floor out of R10’s reach. The surveyor notified E7 (Nurse) that the resident was on the floor. E7 and E6 (Certified Nurses Assistant) assisted R10 back to the bed. Record review of the Physician Order Sheet has an order dated 1/10/11, for a personal alarm when in bed or wheelchair. The alarm was not in the bed or wheelchair at the time of the incident. R10 was observed without the alarm at 2 other times during the observation. R10 has a history of previous falls on 2/9/2010, 4/26/2010, 5/3/10, 5/11/2010, 11/20/2010, 1/1/2010 and 1/26/2011.”
  • Failure to take measures to promote resident dignity: “On 12/9/09 at 8:35am, R1 was moved in chair from dayroom to hallway next to room [ROOM NUMBER] by E11 (Psychosocial Rehabilitation Counselor). R1 was not moving in chair throughout the transport and had a seatbelt in place. E11 (P.R.S.C) was positioned facing R1’s back and was pushing chair forward. Throughout the transport from the dayroom to hallway, R1’s pink shirt was pulled up exposing 1/2 of her right breast. E11 stated, “I did not see her shirt pulled up.” After R1 was positioned in hallway E11 did pull R1’s shirt down.”
  • Failure to ensure residents are free from serious medication errors: “E4 (R.N) handed the syringe to the surveyor stating “This is the dosage. The resident (R2) is to get 12 units.” Insulin syringe contained 15 units. E10 (Registered Nurse) confirmed 15 units of Insulin were in the syringe. E4 was notified of the error and redrew the Insulin. The Insulin syringe was given to the surveyor with 13 units of [MEDICATION NAME] in the syringe. E10 (R.N) verified 13 units of [MEDICATION NAME] Insulin were in the syringe. E4 demonstrated repeated errors in drawing up Insulin for R2.”

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.
