Choosing the Best Nursing Center to Care for Your Loved One
Many families are faced with placing a loved one in a nursing center on orders of a doctor or as aftercare when released from a hospital. During this time, choosing the best nursing center can be difficult when the family is concerned about the health and well-being of a loved one with a medical condition that is either evolving or healing.
Nearly every claim or lawsuit filed by family members of a loved one injured in a nursing facility involves home abuse or neglect by the medical team. Without proper monitoring, quality nutrition, and effective protocols on providing medicines and treatments, an elder home resident can develop severe complications, including bedsores, pneumonia, open wounds, or other condition.Facility-acquired bedsores can develop quickly when the patient is not appropriately monitored, especially long-stay residents who are mobility-challenged and unable to move without assistance.
Daily activities, including bathing, eating, and physical exercise, are essential to the health and well-being of the patient. When the nursing facility does not provide adequate stimulation, quality meals, or hygiene assistance, the patient can suffer debilitating, life-threatening injuries. Because of that, it is essential to choose the best nursing center available in the community to protect the loved one in need of medical care.

Claims and Awards Involving Rosewood Centers
$180,000 Award after Coffee Incident in Illinois Nursing Center
This case was filed in Illinois after an accident occurred at a Rosewood Care Center. The event occurred on the same day that an 81-year-old woman was admitted to the nursing facility. After an evaluation, Rosewood staff noted that the newly admitted resident would need assistance for feeding and drinking. The nursing staff failed to meet those needs required by the resident.
The plaintiffs claimed that she was given coffee unattended and without a protective lid. Consequently, she spilled the coffee on herself, sustaining several burns and scarring. Also, she developed MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), a highly contagious type of infection. Her condition declined, and she passed away from unrelated causes.
Her legal estate brought an action against the nursing facility, claiming that staff members were negligent and liable for her damages. The defense replied that she exaggerated her injuries, the coffee was a reasonable temperature, and the whole event was unavoidable.
The jury denied the objections of the defendant's legal team and awarded the plaintiffs $180,000: $50,000 for disfigurement; $25,000 for the loss of a normal life; and $105,000 for pain.
$454,762 Verdict for Illinois Nursing Home Fall Case
This case emerged after an older woman allegedly fell on several occasions at an Illinois Rosewood Care Center in the center of the city of Chicago. Home abuse attorneys for the woman claimed that after one of her falls there, she suffered a hematoma, and after a subsequent fall, she sustained a brain hemorrhage.
Before these falling incidents, she was already paralyzed from a previous and unrelated stroke. Therefore, she needed constant care and supervision. In her attorneys' complaint, they claimed that these falls were proof that the staff did not meet her needs. Further, they alleged that these falls contributed to her death.
Her attorneys sought compensation for these injuries and costs, as well as the tragedy of her wrongful death. The defense (a nursing facility) denied that all the falls occurred on their watch. Also, they replied that the woman's health problems and eventual death did not stem from any of their actions or inactions.
The facility's defense was not successful. Jurors awarded the plaintiffs over $400,000 for the loss of a normal life, pain, distress, medical bills, suffering, and wrongful death.
$149,115 Verdict to Man after Illinois Nursing Home Tumble
An eighty-three-year-old man was dropped off at a nursing home (a Rosewood Care Center) for short-term care. His at-home caretakers, who regularly looked after him, needed respite care for the resident because they were going to be away on vacation. The nursing home accepted the case to provide medical care and supervision until his caretakers to return.
However, just a few hours after they left, the man fell and broke his hip. The staff members were not present at the time of the fall. The incident was a costly one for the man, including over $20,000 in medical bills and more than $60,000 in rehabilitative care. The man passed away from his injuries. Neglect attorneys for the man's estate filed a civil lawsuit against the nursing home.
The plaintiff's legal team alleged the defendant (the nursing facility) violated Illinois' Nursing Home Care Act and sought compensation for all the harms and losses that resulted. The defendant replied that the man did not need close supervision. However, that plea did not prevent the plaintiffs from obtaining a sizeable verdict. The jurors awarded the man's estate $149,115 for the loss of a healthy life, pain, and medical bills.
$58,879 Award for Illinois Woman after Nursing Home Accident
An 82-year-old woman staying at a Rosewood facility in Edwardsville, Illinois, attempted to go to the washroom by herself but fell. She suffered a hematoma and a broken spine. These injuries required surgery and extended hospital stays. She was burdened with tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills.
Lawyers for the woman sued the facility on her behalf, claiming that the home was negligent and responsible for her damages, including pain and suffering. The defendant asserted that the resident did not ask for assistance and could have asked for help. The facility's lawyers stated that the resident was of sound mind at the time of the fall.
Further, lawyers for the defendant claimed that the facility had more than enough staff on hand and that the woman was not a risk for falls. These substantive defenses could explain why the jury award was relatively low. The resolution compensated the plaintiff for her medical bills.
