Concerning Findings Regarding Patient Care at Pine Crest Health Care

According to data from nursing home surveys conducted by the Illinois Department of Health other agencies, there have been numerous series of poor patient care and preventable falls at Pine Crest Health Care which can be construed as nursing home negligence. Our nursing home attorneys reviewed data compiled by ProPublica and found the following conditions that can be construed as nursing home negligence:

  • Failure to investigate the cause of a fall resulting in injury: “Closed record review shows R27 was admitted to the facility on [DATE] with [DIAGNOSES REDACTED]. R27 was assessed as at risk for falls. Nursing notes dated 5/30/10 at 2pm states R27 was transferred in his wheelchair from the dining room to his bedroom by a certified nurses aid (CNA) as R27 wanted to make a phone call. R27 was left in his chair and staff heard a noise in the room and found R27 lying on his left side on the floor. There were no visible signs of injury and R27 was conscious stating ‘I fell ‘. When staff asked him if he hit his head R27 replied ‘yes’. Nursing notes describes R27 as having sluggish pupils and weak hand grasp; oxygen saturation level of 89%. Oxygen therapy was started by staff. R27 became nauseated and staff noted a change in mental status with increased confusion, hallucinations, anxious and slurred speech. Resident was transferred to the hospital emergency room and admitted. Review of facility’s incident report log shows no evidence that the facility conducted an investigation to determine the cause of the fall. E3, Director of Nursing, presented survey team with a copy of R27’s nursing progress note [REDACTED].”
  • Failure to properly treat pressure sores: “During the initial tour of the facility on 9/21/10 at approximately 9:30am, R3 was observed in bed receiving a bed bath by E12, Certified Nurses Aid, (CNA). E12 told surveyor R3 will be transferred to her chair and transported to the dining room afterwards. R3 was positioned on her right side and surveyor noted an open area on her sacrum with no dressing in place and perineum with loose bowel movement. The following was observed by surveyor during three days of the survey that could have contributed to the development of these wounds: 1. R3 spends most of the day in a recliner chair with no off loading of her heels; 2. During a continuous three-hour observation on 9/22/10, R3 was not re-positioned while in her recliner, nor was incontinent care provided. R3 is incontinent of both bowel and bladder;  3. R3 requires extensive assist with transfer with use of a mechanical lift. R3 was observed being lifted manually by staff from recliner to bed. 4. Staff told surveyor that R3 had been having frequent diarrhea stools. R3 has an order for [MEDICATION ORDERS REDACTED].”
  • Failure to give proper care to residents with Gastronomy tubes: “R7 was observed on 8/10/09 at 12:15pm lying flat in bed with the Gastrostomy Tube feeding running at 63 cc per hour. E4 was notified and stated,” I will reposition.” Running a feeding tube while the resident is lying flat places the resident at risk of aspiration.”

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.
