Important Findings Regarding Patient Care at Schwab Rehabilitation Center

A nursing home survey carried out by private health inspection firms and the State Department of Health, discovered poor patient care, inadequate patient supervision and cases of abuse which can be construed as patient negligence. The nursing home lawyers of Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers reviewed the findings of ProPublica—a private health survey firm—and discovered the following episodes:

  • Failure to conduct initial and periodic assessments of each resident’s functional capacity: “On October 5, 2011 at 10:15 am in the room, R6’s hands were both contracted and were without any splints. There were no comprehensive assessments documented in R6’s medical record since R6’s admission on October 28, 2008. On October 6, 2011, during the daily status meeting in the conference room at 2:00pm, E1 (Administrator), E2 (Director of Nurses), E4 (RN), E5 (Vice President for Credentials) state that all beds in the unit are certified beds. E2 and E4 both confirmed that there is no MDS documentation for R6.”
  • Failure to store food at the appropriate temperature: “Based on observation and interview, the facility failed store milk at 41 or below degrees Fahrenheit. 10/4/11, at approximately 10:30am, during the Initial tour, the temperature was taken of 2% milk stored in a pull out refrigerator. The temperature was 42.2 and 42.4 degrees Fahrenheit. 10/4/11, at approximately 12 noon, the temperature of milk stored in the 3rd floor day room refrigerator was 42.6 degrees Fahrenheit.”

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
★★★★★
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

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, Avvo User
