Concerning Findings Regarding Patient Care at St. Joseph Village of Chicago

A survey conducted by the Illinois department of health and other private health Inspection organizations ProPublica, unearthed numerous episodes of poor patient care and laxity that could be labeled under the term of nursing home negligence. “Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers”, were contacted to review these findings and we came up with the following facts/conditions that highlighted the possibility of negligence on the part of St. Joseph Village of Chicago:

  • Failure to investigate injuries of unknown origin:  “Review of the facility’s Incident Report dated 6/18/11 shows R7 sustained an unwitnessed fall in the dining room at 6:20pm. Upon assessment, R7 complained of pain when left leg was touched and noted with shortening and external rotation of the left leg. R7 was sent out to the hospital and [DIAGNOSES REDACTED]. Nurses notes dated 7/26/11 states R7 was noted with externally rotated left hip. X-ray results showed left hip dislocation and R7 was admitted to the hospital. This incident was not recorded in the facility’s Incident log. E3 (Restorative Nurse) stated on 4/27/12 at approximately 1:00pm, that she does not know how R7’s left hip injury occurred nor did she know if an investigation was done. E3 later confirmed that there was no investigation done.”
  • Failure to ensure call lights are within easy reach of residents: “On 4/24/12 at approximately 10:15am, R7 was in bed, alert but confused, with unintelligible speech. R7’s call light was not within easy reach. E3 (Nurse-Care plan coordinator) was present and stated that R7 is able to use the call light, and proceeded to adjust the location of the call light. E3 went on to say that R7 is at high risk for falls.”
  • Failure to take fall prevention measures: “Incident Report dated 6/18/11, 9/29/11 and 3/1/12 shows R7 sustained falls on those dates.According to the care plan fall prevention interventions includes use of non-slick footwear, safety alarm
    device when up in chair and in bed, engage in ambulatory program, instruct on safety measures to reduce fall risk, instruct on use of call light, bed in lowest position with wheels locked. During the initial tour of the facility on 4/24/12 at approximately 10:15am, R7 was in bed, alert but confused, with unintelligible speech. R7’s call light was not within easy reach. E3 (Nurse-Care plan coordinator) was present and stated that R7 is able to use the call light, and proceeded to adjust the location. E3 went on to say that R7 is at high risk for falls and uses body sensor alarm and fall mats on both sides of the bed. At 1:30pm, surveyor entered R7’s room accompanied by E4 (Restorative Nurse).

★★★★★
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
