Nursing Facility Resident Safety Concerns

Each year, the federal government releases the current care-providing status of nursing homes, assisted living facilities and health care centers on its www.Medicare.gov website. Currently, The Mather maintains an overall star rating summary of five out of five stars, which is much above the national average. This includes four out of five stars for health inspections and five out of five stars for both staffing and quality measures.

However, the Evanston nursing home neglect attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers have found numerous complaints involving The Mather. One complaint involves a lack of governing the assessment of a resident after a falling incident and modifying their care plan to safeguard the resident against future potential falls that involved:

  • Failure to Implement Facility Fall Policy to Prevent Future Falls:

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 03/06/2014 during an annual certification survey, a surveyor noted that the facility “failed to implement their fall policy governing post fall assessment, updating interventions and modifying a resident’s care plan to further prevent falls for [a resident]. In addition, the facility “failed to follow the policy for monitoring hot water temperatures used in a machine that heeds and contains heat packs in the physical therapy room for [two residents].”

    This complaint is in response to a 93 year old female resident that suffered from “severely impaired” cognitive skills for daily decision-making. The resident “had falls since admission/entry or reentry or the prior assessment, and [the female resident] had 2 falls with no injuries since admission/entry or reentry or prior assessment. The registered nurse on duty “stated in part that she could not find documentation regarding updated interventions on [the resident’s] fall plan after [the resident’s] falls on 6/26/13, 7/11/13, and 9/10/13.”

★★★★★
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
