Attorneys for Injured & Neglected Patients at Mosaic of Beacon

Mosaic of BeaconMany Illinois nursing home residents suffer ongoing pain from chronic or acute medical conditions. Because of that, the nursing staff is required to perform daily pain assessments and make adjustments to their pain drugs as necessary. Unfortunately, not all Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses receive proper training and ongoing supervision to ensure they perform pain assessments in accordance with policies and procedures. Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers have represented injured, mistreated and neglected residents of Illinois skilled nursing homes like Mosaic of Beacon who were harmed by the actions of negligent caregivers.

Chicago Nursing Home Resident Safety Concerns

Illinois and the federal government regularly update their nursing home database system with complete details of all safety concerns, filed complaints, opened investigations and health violations. The search results can be reviewed on numerous sites including Medicare.gov.

Currently, Mosaic of Beacon maintains an overall three out of five available star rating in the nationwide comparison Medicare rating summary system. This includes three out of five stars for both health inspections and quality measures and two out of five stars for staffing concerns. The Cook County nursing home neglect attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers have found many deficiencies, safety concerns and health violations at this nursing home that include:

  • Failure to Provide Cares and Services at a Level That Maintains the Resident’s Highest Well-Being

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 11/06/2015, a complaint investigation against the facility was opened for its failure to "evaluate and manage pain for [a resident].” In addition, the state investigator noted the facility’s failure “to follow physician’s orders regarding a splint application” for a resident.” The failures by the nursing staff “resulted in uncontrolled pain for [a resident] and development of an acquired pressure ulcer for [another resident].”

    The deficient practice was first noted in the state investigator’s findings involving an interview with the resident on 11/05/2015 who stated “I feel like I am being held hostage in my bed, in the corner of my room by my pain. I have a new nurse on 11/04/2015, during the day who took off my pain patch though it was not supposed to be changed until the next day. I know the patch stays on for three days.”

    The resident stated that the Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) “realized it was one day too soon to take it off and stated she could not put another one on until the next day, so I had to wait until the next day. I went the whole day without it and in pain. I only got something for pain in the evening but I said I was in pain all day.”

    The LPN was interviewed by the state investigator who stated: “I remember I gave [the resident] pain medication during the day [...and] I cannot find where I charted it; all I see is the pain medication I gave her at 6:00 PM.” The LPN stated, “I removed the fentanyl patch because I thought it had to be removed [...and] realized it was not supposed to be removed and was due to be changed the next day.”

    The LPN apologized and explained that the resident would have to wait until the following day for another patch. The LPN gave the resident “Oxycodone 5 mg once at 6:00 PM during [their] shift but did not complete the pain assessment that day as ordered.”

    The state investigator reviewed the resident’s 11/04/2015 Nursing Progress Notes as charted by the LPN. However, the chart “does not mention pain patch being removed or mention of resident’s complaints of pain.” In addition, the resident’s 11/01/2015 through 11/30/2015 Physician Order Sheet (POS) denotes “Pain Assessment every shift on a scale of 1 to 10; Record Pain level; was left blank on 11/04/2015 during the day shift.”

    The state investigator noted that the actions of the LPN failed to follow the facility’s Revise October 2010 Policy Titled: Pain Assessment and Management that reads in part:

    “Assess the resident’s pain and consequences of pain at least every shift for acute pain or significant changes in levels of chronic pain.”

Client Reviews
Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case.

★★★★★
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
