Concerning Findings Regarding Patient Care at Southview Manor Nursing Center

A survey conducted by the State Department of Health and diverse private health inspection firms un-earthed some episodes of poor patient supervision and physical abuse which has led to patient injuries and falls. The survey conducted by ProPublica—a private inspection firm—was reviewed by our nursing home attorneys in Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers and episodes of poor supervision which could be construed as nursing home negligence were found:

  • Failure to protect a resident from physical abuse by a visitor:  “(Z2) allegedly entered the unit (4th floor) without permission before facility visiting hours under the pretense of visiting a relative (R1). The alleged boyfriend of E12 (CNA/certified nurse’s assistant) works on the same unit. (Z2) waited in the dayroom for (R4) to enter the unit then struck the resident with a fist to the left side of the face causing injury. E12 alleges (R4) inappropriately touched a body part of E12. R4 states, “I got into a verbal altercation with E12 (CNA/certified nurses assistant) on Saturday night. They said I (R4) had touched E12 inappropriately. (R4 could not relate to surveyor who they are). E11 (nurse) told me that they said I reached at E12 but, I didn’t touch E12. Sunday morning about 9:00am, I went to the floors’ water cooler at the nurse’s station. E12’s boyfriend (Z2) ran out of the dining room and hit me (R4) in the face twice, after E12’s mother-in-law (R1) said there he is. She (R1) lived on that floor, E12 worked on that floor. Next thing I know, they were leading him (Z2) downstairs. Nobody but police officers talked to me about this. I talked to E1 (administrator) and I told E1 just what I told you (surveyor). I didn’t write anything. He (Z2) was up there before visiting hours apparently waiting for me (R4). I was told E12 and R1 took him (Z2) to my room before I got up there.” The deficient practice had the potential to impact all 193 residents in the facility.”
  • Failure to accurately assess and document the presence of cataract: “R23’s clinical records shows an optometry consult dated 6/1/10 with a [DIAGNOSES REDACTED].”0″. Section I6500 (Active Diagnosis) is unchecked with [MEDICAL CONDITION] not listed as an active diagnosis. Z2 (Consulting Optometrist) stated during a telephone interview on 5/25/12 at 9:30am that R23 does have [MEDICAL CONDITION] in both eyes which was [DIAGNOSES REDACTED]. E12 (MDS Coordinator) stated on 5/25/12 at 1:05 pm, “I missed it”.
  • Failure to develop a care plan to address inappropriate behaviors: “On 6/22/10 at 3:00pm in the conference room E4 (psychosocial director) identified one male resident with a behavior of exposing himself inappropriately. (R2) E4 said that R2 has a behavior of disrobing in his room and walking around in his room. E4 said that he was unaware of any recent occurrence involving R2 exposing himself inappropriately. E9 said that on Saturday 6/19/10 it was reported to her by R1 ‘ s family member that R2 was seen exposing himself to R1. E9 said that she redirected R2, and ensured he was dressed appropriately, and monitored R2 throughout the shift. E9 said that she notified E2 via telephone the next day but can’t recall what time. E9 said that she did inform E2 both residents that were involved. A review of R2’s care plan dated 4/29/10 indicates the problem that R2 takes off cloths randomly. The care plan failed to indicate appropriate interventions to address R2’s inappropriate behavior of undressing randomly. Another plan of care dated 4/29/10 also indicates that R2 will stand in the hallway naked. No intervention for standing in the hallway naked addressed on current care plan.”

★★★★★
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
