Attorneys for Injured & Neglected Patients at Mosaic of Lakeshore

Mosaic of LakeshoreIn accordance with state and federal nursing home regulations, the nursing staff at every nursing facility must report any incident or allegation of abuse immediately to the facility Administrator and State Agency. Any failure to do so could place the health and well-being of the patient in immediate jeopardy. Unfortunately, not all nursing facilities provide adequate in-servicing (training) to ensure that these regulations are followed. The elder abuse attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers have represented many individuals who have been abused and mistreated by caregivers and other residents while residing at Illinois nursing facilities like Mosaic of Lakeshore.

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

  • Failure to Develop, Implement, and Enforce Policies Involving Abuse and Neglect

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 08/08/2016, a formal complaint against the facility was opened by a state investigator for its failure to “implement its abuse prevention policy by not immediately reporting the possible abuse of a resident to the facility’s Administrator/Abuse Coordinator.”

    The deficient practice was first noted in the state investigator’s findings after reviewing a resident’s 05/10/2016, Nursing Progress Note stating that at 7:44 PM, “while making my rounds, the resident noted as cursing, yelling and using bad language.” The nurse “asked the resident what happened and he stated that two Certified Nursing Assistants who were giving him a shower in the morning last Thursday were touching his penis inappropriately. When asked who were the Certified Nursing Assistants, the resident stated: ‘two big black guys’.”

    The resident was allowed to ventilate his feelings and then was given a snack. Notations indicate that there will be a follow-up with the Behavioral Social Department.” The Licensed Practical Nurse stated at 3:39 PM on 08/08/2016 that “she notified the Behavioral Social Department about the allegations and was supposed to contact the Administrator, but did not.”

    As a part of the investigation, the state surveyor reviewed the resident’s 08/05/2016 Care Plan that read “assessment reveals factors that may increase the susceptibility to abuse/neglect. Interventions: Report any allegation or suspicion of abuse to the Supervisor and Administrator immediately.”

    The Administrator of the facility was interviewed at 1:53 PM on 08/08/2016 and stated in part “that she was not notified regarding allegations that [the resident] made about his penis being touch inappropriately [that was] documented on the Progress Note on 05/10/2016 [...and] that they had had two or three in-services on how to report abuse in this is not the way it should have been done.”

    The state investigator noted that the actions by the nursing staff and Administrator failed to follow the facility’s December 2013 policy titled: Abuse Prevention Program Facility Procedures that reads in part:

    “Employees are required to report any incident, allegation or suspicion of potential abuse, neglect, mistreatment or misappropriation of a resident’s property [that] they observe, hear about or suspect to the Administrator immediately…”

  • Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision and Equipment to Prevent Injury

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 03/01/2016, a notation was made by the state surveyors while performing an annual licensure and certification survey in regards to the nursing home's failure to “implement an intervention for Fall Prevention Care Plan for a resident, monitor and supervise a resident left alone in a room with a behavior of standing without assistance and have an element in place to reduce injury from an impact of a fall while the resident is sitting in a chair.”

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

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home.
