The Rock Island County nursing home neglect attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers have found various deficiencies, violations and safety concerns at this nursing home including:

  • Failure to Notify the Resident’s Physician of a Change in Their Condition Including a Decline in Their Health or Injury

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 04/19/2016, an Illinois state investigator noted during an annual licensure and certification survey that the facility failed to “notify the physician of a change in the resident’s condition.”

    The deficient practice was first noted in the state investigator’s findings after reviewing a resident’s April 2016 Current Physician Order Sheet (POS) revealing the patient was diagnosed with “Sepsis, Pneumonia, Respiratory Failure, Post Esophageal Perforation during repair of the Diaphragmatic Hernia… and cerebral palsy.”

    The resident’s 12:00 PM 04/10/2016 Nurses’ Notes documented that the resident “was asked if in any pain.” The resident looked at the nurse but did not respond. When asked to blink twice if in pain the resident “blinked twice.” The nurse noticed that the resident was “warm to touch” and had a temperature of 101.8 degrees.

    A Licensed Practical Nurse documented that at 9:50 AM on 04/19/2016 the Certified Nursing Assistant came to the nurse “and said [the patient] was sweaty [...and] had sweat on [the patient’s] face and hair was wet.” The Registered Nurse gave the patient Tylenol and “called the doctor about something else, but… Had to leave a voicemail.” The LPN stated that “I didn’t get a chance to tell the doctor” about the patient’s high-temperature and sweating symptoms.

    An interview was conducted with the facility’s Director of Nursing just after noon on 04/19/2016 who verified “the nurses to call the physician with a change in the resident’s condition, including an elevated temperature.”

    The state investigator noted that the actions of the nursing staff failed to follow the facility’s November 1998 policy titled: Reporting Significant Changes in Resident’s Condition that reads in part:

    “Each charge nurse will be responsible for assessing the resident’s condition on a continual basis [...and] will notify the physician of any significant change in the resident’s condition at the time the change is noted."

  • Failure to Provide Appropriate Cares to Allow an Existing Pressure Sore to Heal

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 04/19/2016, the State Investigator noted the actions of the nursing staff failed to “cover a Stage II pressure ulcer and failed to perform incontinence care to prevent contamination of a Stage II pressure ulcer.”

    An observation was made of two Certified Nursing Assistants along with the Rehab/Restorative Aide transferring a resident to a wheelchair using a mechanical lift. During that time, a bedsore was noticed because “no dressing was in place to cover the wound." The Certified Nursing Assistant applied a clean disposable incontinent brief after wiping “the wound with the soiled cloth."

Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case.

★★★★★
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
