Disquieting Findings on the Patient Care at Advocate South Suburban Hospital

Data gotten from the surveys conducted by the Illinois Department of Health and other inspection agencies including ProPublica, show that some patients were victims to negligence while been admitted at the St. Martha Manor. At Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers, we reviewed the survey data from ProPublica and found the following situation that can be construed as Nursing Home Negligence:

  • Failure to properly remove expired medications:  “The facility’s policy “MEDICATION ORDERING AND LABELING” dated 12/2008 states, “Multi-dose vials are to be dated on the day they first opened (initial use), discard 30 days from the date it was opened.” On 12/28/11 fifteen different medications were observed to have either been expired or not been dated when initially opened. On 12/28/11 at 2:40 pm, E8 (Licensed Practical Nurse) stated that the pharmacy delivery date is the date used when the medication is initially opened. They do not date and initial the medication on the day they first opened the medication.”
  • Failure to follow isolation procedures: “E1 stated, “R4 is on contact isolation for [MEDICAL CONDITION] resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) to the left lower leg.” During observation on 11/22/2010 at 11:00am accompanied by E1 (nurse), R4’s room was noted to have two garbage container with red isolation bags in them. There is no isolation sign/information posted on the entrance door of the room, and no gowns, gloves or masks available outside the room entrance either. So, surveyor interviewed E1 about the use of the red bags in the garbage containers and no available gloves, gowns or other items consistent with an isolation set-up.”

Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case.

★★★★★
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 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, 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
