Attorneys for Patients Mistreated at The Symphony of Lincoln Park

The Symphony of Lincoln Park Many families have no other option than to place a loved one in a nursing facility and turn over their health and hygiene care to medical professionals. Unfortunately, the elder abuse attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers have represented many Illinois nursing home residents who have suffered injuries of unknown origin that went unreported to state agencies as required by law.

Every nursing home in Illinois is legally obligated to provide a safe and caring environment and staff with competent Registered Nurses and Certified Nurses’ Aides that follow acceptable standards of care. Sadly, many cases of neglect and abuse cause significant harm and injury to residents through intentional actions or lack of proper training and knowing how to provide quality care.

In an effort to assist families, our legal team serves as legal advocates to every Illinois nursing home resident. We provide valuable insight gathered from publicly available databases on nursing facilities throughout the state. Families often use this information to better understand the levels of care your loved one receives in a nursing facility or when choosing where to place their loved one in a home in their community.

However, our Chicago nursing home neglect attorneys have located numerous opened complaints, filed investigations, safety concerns and health violations against the facility. Some of these include:

  • Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Any Reported Act of Abuse, Mistreatment or Negligence of Residents at the Facility

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 01/29/2016, a notation was made by a state surveyor during an annual licensure and certification survey involving the facility's failure to "notify the Department of Public Health of a potential allegation of abuse involving an injury of unknown origin. The deficient practice by the nursing staff at The Symphony of Lincoln Park directly affected one resident who is cognitively impaired and was responsive and alert at the time of the incident but was aphasic (language impaired) with slurred speech.

    The failure was first noted at 3:36 PM on 12/26/2015 in the resident’s Progress Note that states that a nurse “noted palpable red contusion noted to right outer knee area tender to touch and noted left arm pain.” A review of the resident’s medical record showed that there “was no evidence of an incident report being created and no evidence of investigation was conducted pertaining to the documented injury. There is no evidence that the facility attempted to investigate the cause of the injury” as is required by state and federal nursing home regulatory agencies.

  • Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies to Prevent Mistreatment, Abuse, and Neglect of Residents

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 01/29/2016, a notation was made by a state investigator during an annual licensure and certification survey concerning the facility's failure to "follow its abuse prevention policy/protocol and conduct an internal abuse investigation of an injury of unknown origin.” This incident was first revealed at 10:30 AM on 01/22/2013 when the Unit Manager Registered Nurse stated that another nurse “who sees the change in condition should be the one to initiate paperwork and assessments. The nurse on duty, a supervisor on duty, or manager on duty should have started the injury of unknown origin.”

    The Unit Manager Registered Nurse also indicated that “when you investigate injury of unknown origins, you must tell the abuse coordinator and start abuse investigation.” The individual in charge at the time of the resident’s injury of unknown origin stated above “no longer works at the facility.”

★★★★★
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.
