St. Paul’s Home

St. Paul’s Home Many nursing facilities in Illinois are understaffed, or staffed with nurses, licensed practical nurses, registered nurses and aides who lack appropriate training on how to provide the highest level of care. In many incidences, the resident suffers serious injuries, pain, infections or other conditions that require immediate or ongoing care. Unfortunately, the Belleville elder abuse attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers have represented many Illinois residents who have suffered needlessly because of the negligent actions of their caregivers.

St. Paul’s Home

St. Paul’s Home is a 94-certified bed Medicare/Medicaid-participating nonprofit church-related nursing facility providing services to residents of Belleville and St. Clair County Illinois. The facility is located at:

1021 W. E Street
Belleville, IL 62220
(618) 233-2095

In addition to providing skilled nursing care, the facility also offers Medicare rehabilitation, memory care, shelter care and assisted-living options. The home also offers physical, speech, occupational and other therapies to improve independence and enhance wellness.

Belleville Nursing Home Resident Safety Concerns

In an effort to keep the public aware of opened investigations, filed complaints, safety concerns and health violations of every nursing facility in the U.S., the state of Illinois and the federal government routinely update their nursing home database systems. The historical results can be found on numerous websites including Medicare.gov.

Currently, St. Paul’s Home maintains an overall two out of five available star rating in the national Medicare star rating summary comparative analysis system tool. This includes four out of five stars for staffing issues, two out of five stars for quality measures and one out of five stars for health inspections. Our Belleville nursing home neglect attorneys have uncovered numerous safety concerns and filed complaints involving this facility that include:

  • Failure to Notify the Resident’s Physician or Responsible Party of Any Change in Their Condition Including a Decline in Health or Injury

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 12/22/2015, a state surveyor made a notation during an annual licensure and certification survey concerning the facility's failure to "timely notify the physician of pain, skin breakdown, and signs and symptoms of urinary tract infections.” The deficient practice of the nursing staff at St. Paul’s Home affected two residents at the facility.

    One failure was first noted at 11:18 AM on 12/17/2015 when a resident stated: “my vagina is on fire and I am in a lot of pain.” At that time, the resident “was asked to rate her pain on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the highest.” The resident stated, “I am at 10 out of 10 for pain with 10 being the highest. I told the nurse [a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)] this morning around 9:30 AM that my vagina was on fire and she didn’t even look at it and told me to drink more water.”

    An observation was made of the resident later that day at 12:38 PM who “was sitting in her wheelchair in the dining room, staring into space with teeth gritted.” The resident “did not eat her food and when asked if she was hungry… stated, ‘I am still in a lot of pain, a 10 out of 10. It is hard to sit right now in the facility will not take “No” for an answer. I just don’t feel good right now. It’s awful!’”

    The investigator interviewed the Licensed Practical Nurse in charge of providing ;the resident care at 11:40 AM that day who stated that the resident “had a pain assessment this morning and she was not in any pain.” The investigator “asked if she was aware of [the resident] complaining of pain in her vagina.” The LPN stated that “I have a call out to the doctor to see if she can get some cream on it.” The investigator “asked if she looked at the area and assessed it.” The Licensed Practical Nurse stated, “I looked at the area but had not charted anything.”

    The physician’s office was contacted at 1:20 PM that day and the receptionist stated that the physician “was not available, but they were still taking orders for [other doctors in charge].” The receptionist “stated she checked with other staff members and no one had reported receiving a phone call today from the facility regarding any reports, physical complaints, or notifications of anything regarding [the resident in pain].”

Client Reviews
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 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.
