Attorneys for Injured & Neglected Patients at Monmouth Nursing Home

Monmouth Nursing HomeStaff members at every Illinois nursing facility are required by law to notify a resident’s physician of any change in their condition including a decline in their health. This action ensures that the patient is receiving the highest level of medical treatment to maintain their well-being. Unfortunately, not all nursing homes provide a level of ongoing training and supervision to ensure that notifications are being made in a timely manner, which could be detrimental to the patient’s health. Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers have represented many injured and abused residents of Illinois skilled nursing homes like Monmouth Nursing Home.

Monmouth Nursing Home Resident Safety Concerns

The Federal government and Illinois nursing home regulatory agencies routinely update the nursing home database system containing the complete list of all safety concerns, health violations, filed complaints and opened investigations. This information can be found on numerous websites including Medicare.gov.

Currently, Monmouth Nursing Home maintains an overall four out of five available star rating in the Medicare star rating analysis system compared to all other facilities nationwide. This includes four out of five stars for staffing concerns, three out of five stars for health inspections and two out of five stars for quality measures. The Warren County nursing home neglect attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers have found deficiencies and safety concerns at this nursing facility that include:

  • Failure to Notify a Resident’s Physician of a Change in Their Condition Including a Decline in Their Health or Injury

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 01/12/2016, a formal complaint against the facility was opened by a state investigator for its failure to “notify the physician of a declining resident condition.” The deficient practice by the nursing staff was first documented by the state investigator after reviewing a resident’s 11/17/2015 Nurses Notes” that failed to document that the notification to the resident’s physician had been made.

    Five days later, the resident’s Nurse’s Notes document a late entry indicating the presence of ankle edema. However, “there is no notification to [the resident’s] physician documented. Again, the resident’s 12/02/2015 Nurses Notes documents that the resident is experiencing shortness of breath “with exertion, appears to have a weak voice. Resident states [they] are feeling slightly congested. Will continue to monitor.” Again, “there is no notification to [the resident’s] physician.”

    The investigator noted that the actions by the nursing staff failed to follow the facility’s 10/09/2015 Notification of Change of Resident Condition to Physician and Family that provides guidance to direct the staff that includes:

    “The facility must immediately inform the resident, consult with the resident’s physician, and notify the resident’s legal representative of any change in condition or status, accident/injuries, change of her roommate’s assignments, abnormal lab results or any new orders received for that resident.”

  • Failure to Provide Incontinence Care to Eliminate the Potential Spread of Infection

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 09/10/2015, the state agency surveyor noted the facility’s deficient practice to “prevent cross-contamination during incontinence care.”

    The state investigator made an observation of two Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) on the morning of 09/09/2015 who entered a resident’s “room to perform incontinence care [because the resident] had been incontinent of urine and stool.” Both Certified Nursing Assistants lifted the resident “up and with gloved hands, [one CNA] cleansed the resident’s perineal and rectal area.”

    Both CNAs assisted the resident “to sit back down to remove [their] incontinence brief [...and] was soiled gloved hands, [one CNA] removed the adult incontinence brief, placed on a new brief, pulled [the resident’s] pants up, grabbed the right arm of [the resident’s] walker, assisted [the resident] to the standing position, transferred [the resident to the resident’s] wheelchair and then removed a gait belt from around [the resident’s] waist” all without removing their contaminated gloves.

    The state investigator noted that the actions by the nursing staff failed to follow the facility’s undated policy titled: Standard Precautions that reads in part:

    “When to wash hands: after removing gloves or other personal protective equipment. Change gloves between tasks and procedures on the same resident after contact with material that may contain microorganisms… When to remove gloves: before touching non-contaminated items and surfaces.”

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
★★★★★
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
