Attorneys for Patients Mistreated at Park Place Belvidere

Park Place of Belvidere Sadly, abuse and mistreatment against elderly residents in nursing facilities is an all too common occurrence. In fact, the elder abuse attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers have represented many victims of nursing home abuse who have suffered harm at the hands of their caregivers.

Unfortunately, many cases involving abuse and mistreatment are rarely reported to nurse supervisors, administrators, state agencies or other proper authorities. In many incidences, the resident may be hesitant to tell others due to embarrassment or fear of retaliation. Family members are often unaware that their loved one has been victimized because many signs of abuse and mistreatment have no warning signs or indicators.

Our Belvidere nursing home neglect attorneys offer our services of legal advocacy to every Illinois nursing home resident. We continuously review, assess and evaluate publicly available data and publish the information in an effort to assist families facing the undesirable task of placing a loved one in a nursing facility in their community.

Our Boone and Winnebago County nursing home neglect attorneys have found numerous opened investigations, filed complaints, health violations and safety concerns involving this facility. Two of these include:

  • Failure to Immediately Investigate and Report Any Act or Any Reported Act of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 05/13/2015, a state surveyor made a notation during an annual licensure and certification survey concerning the facility's failure to "immediately report two allegations of abuse to abuse coordinator.” This deficient practice of the nursing staff at Park Place of Belvidere affected two residents at the facility.

    A preliminary investigation generated by the facility “shows an allegation of abuse for [a resident that occurred in the resident’s room] on 01/09/2015 at 9:10 PM. The investigation report shows that [a Certified Nursing Assistant inform the Administrator of a] Registered Nurse speaking to [the resident] in a derogatory manner with a raised voice. The report does not show when [the Administrator] was notified of the allegation.” The state investigator noted that the Certified Nursing Assistant [did not report the allegation until the next day (01/10/2015] at around 8:00 AM.”

    In a second incident noted in a facility preliminary investigation report documents an allegation of abuse that occurred on 03/15/2015 at 4:00 AM” with the resident and a Registered Nurse. The incident involved an agitated resident attempting to exit the nursing facility. As a result, a Registered Nurse “ran outside and wrapped his arms around [the resident’s] neck and drag them back in the building forcefully.”

    The deficient practices of the nursing staff at Park Place of Belvidere violates the facility’s December 2013 Abuse Prevention Program Policy that reads in part: “Employees are required to report any incident, allegation or suspicion of potential abuse, neglect, mistreatment or misappropriation of resident property they observe, hear about or suspect to the Administrator immediately or to an immediate supervisor who must then immediately reported to the Administrator.”

  • Failure to Provide Every Resident a Safe, Easy to Use, Clean and Comfortable Area

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 05/13/2015, a notation was made during an annual licensure and certification survey by a state investigator concerning the facility's failure to "ensure the resident’s environment and equipment were clean and free of debris.” The deficient practice by the nursing staff and employees at Park Place of Belvidere “has the potential to affect all 50 residents in the facility.”

    As part of the investigation, the surveyor noted that “on 05/11/2015 and 05/12/2015, the mechanical lift base on the 300 Hallway was covered with white debris. The mechanical lifts in the 100 Hall shower room and 200 Hall bathroom were splattered with brown debris. The sit-to-stand lift by the 300 Hall to nurse’s station had a brown discolored sugar packet crusted to the foot base [...and] the wheelchair scale in the 200 wing bathroom was littered with debris.”

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.
