Even though the facility maintains a high standard of quality care, the nursing home neglect attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC have found filed complaints and opened investigations against Rush Oak Park Hospital Skilled Nursing Unit. These include:

  • Failure to Provide an Environment Free of Accident Hazards:
  • In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 10/02/2015, a complaint investigation was opened against the facility for its failure “to have a nurse’s aide have hold of a resident’s contact guard assist device (gate belts) at all times while assisting a resident to transfer or ambulate, to prevent a resident from falling. This applies to one resident.” The complaint investigation is in response to an incident reported on 9/29/2015 where documentation shows a CNA “was assisting [a resident] in toileting.

    [The resident] walked with a walker, wearing nonskid socks, gate belts intact, to the toilet. As [the resident] was maneuvering out of the restroom, her walker caught on the doorway causing her to lose balance and fall backward back into the restroom. [The CNA] who was in the doorway of the restroom, holding the gate belts, was not able to maneuver past the walker to ease the patient to the floor. [The resident landed on her left hip. The physician was made aware and x-ray done showed a new spiral of oblique fracture through the distal femoral meta-diaphysis distal to the femur stem on the left hip arthroplasty.”

  • Failure to Implement Policies Involving Abuse and Neglect at the Facility:
  • In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 02/20/2014, a complaint investigation was opened against the facility for their failure “to report an allegation of abuse in a timely manner for [one resident] failed to obtain fingerprints for 3 out of 8 personnel files reviewed out of a total of 12 patient care technician (PCT) and failed to have detailed abuse policy which clearly documents who the abuse prohibition coordinator is and when to notify the state of alleged abuse. These failures have the potential to affect all 19 patients on the hospital-based extended care (skilled) unit.”

    This is partly in response to an 11/30/13 incident of alleged abuse reported by a resident’s daughter. During a 2/20/14, the unit director indicated “she had no documentation to present that the State was notified immediately upon learning of the allegation.” This is in direct violation of policies, protocol, and procedures.

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. Michonne Proulx
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
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
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! Giulia
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. Lisa
