However, the Joliet nursing home neglect attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers have found numerous complaints against Our Lady of Angels Retirement Home. Some of these complaints are the result of annual licensure and certification surveys involving allegations of abuse and lack of notifying physicians when the health condition of a resident declines. These cases include:

  • Failure to Thoroughly Investigate Allegations of Abuse:

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 06/12/2013, a notation is made in the annual licensure and certification survey indicating the facility’s failure “to thoroughly investigate allegations of abuse and failed to report allegations of abuse within specific time frame. The facility also failed to ensure facility staff reported allegations of abuse in a timely manner. The facility also failed to ensure their investigation was complete prior to submitting their conclusion to the state agency.”

    This notation is made in response to a 10/21/12 facility investigation file alleging abuse. The incident involved “possible abuse [a nursing staff member] witnessed between a CNA (certified nursing assistant) and [two residents] the prior evening.” The incident “was not reported by the nurse at the time of the occurrence, but instead she left a message for the [nursing staff member] to receive the next day.”

    The allegation involved “a CNA handling a resident roughly and verbally threatening a resident and another instance of not assisting a resident to the washroom when requested.”

  • Failure to Notify Physician of a Decline in Residents’ Health Conditions:

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 03/19/2015, a notation was made that the facility “failed to notify the resident timely for two [residents] reviewed for change of condition.” This is in response to an observation made by a member of the nursing team that a resident had “swelling and purple discoloration to [the resident’s] left ring finger. Even though an attempt was made to contact the resident’s physician, “There was no evidence the facility followed up immediately or make another attempt to call a position when [the physician] did not respond to initial attempt of notification.”

★★★★★
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. 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. Lisa, Avvo User
