Attorneys for Patients Mistreated at Sunny Hill Nursing Home of Will County

Families often place their loved ones in nursing facilities as a way to ensure they receive quality care in a safe environment.

Even with the nursing home’s average rating, the Joliet nursing home neglect attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers have found numerous complaints against Sunny Hill Nursing Home of Will County. Some of these complaints include:

  • Failure to Provide a Safe Environment Free of Accident Hazards

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 06/24/2015, a complaint investigation was opened based on the facility’s failure “to thoroughly investigate fall incidences resulting in injuries to determine the cause of the fall and prevent additional falls.” This is in response to the fall of a 93-year-old male diagnosed with dysphagia, hypertension and flaccid hemiplegia who was injured during a transfer. A supervising nursing professional came to the conclusion “about staff meeting in-servicing about safety during transfers” in an effort to minimize the potential of falling again.

  • Failure to Properly Treat, Prevent or Heal a Bedsore

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 04/11/2012, a complaint investigation was opened due to the facility’s failure “to have preventative measures in place to prevent development of new pressure ulcers, for a resident identified as severely at risk for pressure ulcers.” This is in response to nurses notes and policies that must be followed to “evaluate the resident’s clinical condition and pressure ulcer risk factors, define and implement interventions that are consistent with the resident’s needs, resident’s goal and recognize standard of practice, monitor and evaluate the impact of interventions and revise the approaches as needed.” Even with the policy in place, the attending nurse stated “that she did not do a comprehensive skin assessment as required per policy.”

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.
