Attorneys for Patients Mistreated at Presence McAuley Manor

Presence McAuley Manor

Health and hygiene care in a nursing facility can be expensive. For many families with an elderly, rehabilitating or injured loved one, it is the only option. Nursing facilities provide rooms, meals, recreational activities, assistance for daily living and maintenance of the resident’s health care needs in a supervised environment. The Aurora nursing home abuse attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers understand that selecting the best nursing facility is not always easy. Our team is ready to assist you with any episodes of abuse or neglect at Presence McAuley Manor.

While federal law provides patients and their family members an active role in developing an effective care plan, it is not always followed by nursing home staff. Because of that, our attorneys remain committed to serve as a legal advocate to residents of Illinois nursing facilities. We provide valuable publicly available data on nursing facilities involving safety concerns to allow families to make a better informed decision before placing their loved one in a nursing home.

However, the Aurora nursing home mistreatment attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers note that there are numerous complaints filed against the nursing home over recent years. Some of these include:

  • Failure to Provide an Environment Free of Accidents and Hazards:

    The fall log at presence McAuley Manor indicates that a resident with a history of falling fell on six different occasions over the course of just a few months. Three of these incidences occurred on different days at approximately 11 PM at night. The “facility did not assess why or what the resident was doing at 11:00 PM.”

    On one occasion, it was found that the resident did not “lock the brakes on her wheelchair when she tried to transfer from the wheelchair to the bed and the chair slipped.” Even though a new care plan was initiated on 3/22/15 to ensure that the resident began wearing nonskid socks, “Nothing was said about reeducating the resident to lock the brakes.” The resident subsequently fell again on 4/21/15 noting she failed to “lock the wheelchair brakes.” In a follow-up interview just hours after the falling incident, an on duty nurse indicated that the resident “did not remember falling.”

  • Failure to Provide Services and Cares for the Highest Well-Being:

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 02/29/2012, a complaint was filed against the facility for failing to provide necessary care to attain the “highest practicable physical, mental and psychosocial well-being ….” This complaint is in reference to a resident being admitted to the facility with notations of multiple “pressure sores, surgical sores, and other skin breakdown areas.”

    Even though an initial care plan for skin integrity was developed, it had “no specifics of individual sores or interventions.” The treatment record maintained through December 2011 and January 2012 indicate the resident “did not receive treatment for the sores until 1/2/12.”

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.
