The Grove of La Grange Park The health and well-being of many nursing facility residents can decline rapidly if not provided adequate assistance for mobility.

  • Failure to Ensure That Residents Receive Services/Treatments That Only Continue, but Improve Their Ability to Care for Themselves

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 10/02/2015, a notation was made by a state surveyor during an annual licensure and certification survey involving the facility's failure to " develop and implement an ambulation goal based on previous ambulation history of [a resident at the facility].” This deficient practice by the nursing staff at The Grove of La Grange Park was first noted 11:19 AM on 09/03/2015 when a resident “was sitting in his wheelchair in front of the Nurses ‘Station [expressing] “I have been waiting for someone to walk me with a walker for more than an hour now. I was told someone would come and walk me, it is going to be lunch soon and no one came yet; sometimes I go downstairs (physical therapy room) to ride a bike but again that no one brings me down that I cannot [go].”

    The resident also said that “the last time I walked was last week, only one time. I’m supposed to be walking with the staff at every day. I want to get out of this wheelchair.” The state investigator conducted a confidential staff interview on 09/30/2015 who describe that “the restorative aides are mostly pulled to work on the floor so the programs (restorative) are not done.” The investigator also noted that an interview with the facility’s Restorative Nurse, the nurse “was unable to show any documentation on the progress of [the resident’s] ambulation status/progress [explaining that] the only thing that was documented in the progress note was the time (in minutes) [that the resident] was walked.”

  • Failure to Ensure That Every Resident Entering the Nursing Facility without a Catheter Is Not Given a Catheter and Receives Proper Care to Prevent UTI Infections

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 10/02/2015, a notation was made by a state investigator concerning the facility's failure to "comprehensively assess and implement interventions to maintain confidence and prevent urinary tract infections.” The deficient practice by the nursing staff at the Grove of La Grange Park affected one resident at the facility reviewed for bowel and bladder issues.

    During an interview with the resident on 10/30/2015 at 10:00 AM, it was noted that the resident “had moved to the second-floor two weeks ago and since that time, her mobility has decreased.” The resident reported that “she is now unable to get up and use the washroom and now uses a disposable incontinence brief [… reporting that] her incontinence brief was last changed on the night shift but she is unsure of the time.” Since her relocation the facility, the resident has developed a Stage II coccyx wound measuring 3.0 centimeters by 3.2 centimeters by 0.1 centimeters.”

    A 09/29/2015 tour the facility, that resident “was found to have a strong odor of stool [...and upon taking a shower] she was found to have a diaper containing a mix of liquid and particles of stool.”

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. 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
