Prairie Crossing Living and Rehabilitation Center

Prairie Crossing Living and Rehabilitation Center Many families move their loved ones into a nursing facility to ensure they receive the best incontinence care so they do not develop a life-threatening open wound (bedsore). However, many facilities failed to train their nursing staff appropriately on how to properly provide peri-care, often to the detriment of the resident’s health and well-being. Sadly, the Shabbona elder abuse attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers have handled many cases where the resident suffered preventable life-threatening bedsores due to the negligent actions of their caregivers.

  • Failure to Develop, Implement, and Enforce Programs That Investigates, Controls and Keeps Infection from Spreading

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 09/18/2015, the state investigator noted the facility’s failure “to ensure staff provided incontinence care to a resident in a manner to prevent cross-contamination.” The investigator also noted the facility’s failure “to ensure staff gloves were changed to prevent cross-contamination and a failure to Ensure residents hands were washed after toileting.” The investigation involved a cognitively intact resident who “requires extensive assistance from two staff with transfers, dressing, toileting, personal hygiene, and bathing.”

    An observation was made of two Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) at 1:30 PM on 09/15/2015 transferring a resident “from a reclining wheelchair to bed.” The resident’s “incontinence brief was soiled with stool, and saturated with urine [while she lying on her back in bed.” At that time, the two certified nursing assistants pull the resident’s “soiled incontinence brief down the front.” One CNA white the resident’s hairy area with a wet cloth [then] took the wet cloth with visibly soiled brown stool and placed it on the incontinence pad on the right side of [the resident].” After rolling the resident onto her side, the other Certified Nursing Assistant “pick up the soiled cloth and used it on [the resident’s] bottom of stool and urine.”

    The investigator observed that “without changing her gloves, [the CNA] top the soiled brief and incontinent pad under [the resident] and also talk to clean incontinence brief and pad under [the resident and then] move the role of toilet paper and placed it on [the resident’s] dresser, and [adjusted the resident’s] shirt before removing her contaminated gloves.” As a part of the investigation, the surveyor interviewed the facility’s Director of Nursing at 2:15 PM on 09/17/2015 who said that “if a cloth is contaminated with stool, it should not be reused [...and] said gloves should be changed after providing peri-care before cleaning items are touched.”

  • Failure to Provide Every Resident Necessary Services and Care to Ensure Their Highest Well-Being Is Maintained

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 09/18/2015, the state investigator noted the facility’s failure “to ensure a resident with MASD (moisture associated skin disorder) received incontinence care, toileting, and interventions to promote healing.”

    In this incident, two certified nursing assistants were observed at 12:00 PM on 09/16/2015 assisting a resident whose “incontinence pads were saturated with urine… [and] without providing incontinence care, or cleaning the resident’s peri-area or open wounds, the Certified Nursing Assistant’s placed a clean incontinence brief and clean pants on the resident.” The state investigator noted that the actions by the nursing staff at Prairie Crossing Living and Rehabilitation Center failed to follow established nursing home regulatory procedures and protocols and the facility’s 03/25/2015 policy that states:

    “All incontinent resident shall be cleaned with soap and water, no rinse cleaner or no rinse cleansing wipes.”

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. Ethan Armstrong, Google User

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