Cook County Court Wrongful Death Lawsuit Filed Against Nursing Home

One potential form of nursing home neglect occurs when bedsores develop and are not properly treated.  Such neglect can lead to a variety of adverse health outcomes, including death.  There have been many cases of alleged nursing home neglect in the Chicago area in which the development and worsening of bedsores are cited.

One recent lawsuit has been filed alleging neglect in the treatment of a nursing home patient who had bedsores and died in 2014.  The nursing home is based in Hinsdale.  The lawsuit, which has been filed in the Circuit Court of Cook County, is summarized in a Cook County Record article of July 24, 2015 titled “Widow files wrongful death lawsuit against nursing home.”

An excerpt from the article:

The suit states that Joseph Koucky was admitted to MC-Hinsdale on Feb. 6, 2014, in stable condition and stayed there until his death on April 27, 2014. Court documents indicate that the defendant breached its duty of care by allowing the patient to develop bedsores and failing to monitor and treat the condition, follow its own policies and provide adequate physical therapy.

Additional details and possible updates concerning this wrongful death lawsuit can be found in a variety of media sources, including the Cook County Record article mentioned above.

Lawsuits Allege Physical Violence Against Illinois Nursing Home Residents

One potential cause of harm to nursing home residents is physical violence.  These physical attacks can come from other nursing home residents as well as from staff at the nursing home.  Of course, such attacks can happen at other health care facilities such as assisted living facilities, retirement homes, hospices and hospitals.

Two recent lawsuits allege that two separate nursing home residents were attacked at Illinois nursing homes.

Both of these lawsuits and their allegations are described in recent Cook County Record articles.

The first article is from the Cook County Record of July 9, 2015, and is titled “Estate alleges slapping attack at nursing home” and it summarizes a lawsuit filed in the Circuit Court of Cook County.  This lawsuit alleges that someone came into the room of the nursing home resident, Catherine Kelly, at night, and repeatedly slapped her face.  The lawsuit alleges that because of this assault, Catherine Kelly suffered a variety of injuries as described in the article.

The second article is from the Cook County Record of July 15, 2015, and is titled “Patient alleges attack at nursing home.”  This article summarizes an alleged physical attack of one nursing home resident by another resident, as well as the lawsuit filed over the incident.  This lawsuit was also filed in the Circuit Court of Cook County.  The alleged attack happened at Atrium Health Care Center in Chicago, and the lawsuit was filed by Carol Elkins.  An excerpt from the article:

According to the complaint, on July 10, 2013, Elkins was a resident of Atrium when she was “struck, bit, punched and hit” by another resident. The suit says Elkins sustained injuries, pain and suffering, loss of a normal life, disfigurement, disability and medical expenses.

Additional details regarding these alleged physical attacks of Illinois nursing home residents can be seen in a variety of media sources, including the two Cook County Record articles mentioned above.

Preventing Nursing Home Falls

Falls among the elderly are common.  Falls among the elderly are especially problematical for many reasons, one being that such falls often cause significant injury that can lead directly or indirectly to deaths.

Falls can and do happen within nursing homes and other health care facilities, for various reasons.

Nursing home falls are discussed in this site in various places, including:

Chicago Nursing Home Falls And Dropped Residents

Nursing Home Falls Statistics

Additionally, various posts concerning instances of nursing home falls can be found in the “nursing home falls” category.

While, as discussed on the “Preventing Nursing Home Falls” page, there are many actions that can be taken to prevent nursing home falls, one way is through analysis of data.

A new study and its findings regarding preventing nursing home falls is discussed in the June 30, 2015 McKnights article titled “EHRs and predictive analytics could predict nursing home fall risks:  study” as well as the June 30 CaliforniaHealthline.org article titled “EHRs, Analytics Can Flag Patient Fall Risks in Calif. Nursing Homes.”

Nursing Home Neglect Alleged In Nursing Home Chain

The Pennsylvania Attorney General filed legal action against a nursing home operator for negligence, in that it allegedly failed to provide various basic services to nursing home residents.

The legal action and alleged negligence is discussed in a variety of media sources, including the July 2, 2015 Newtown Patch article titled “Legal Action Filed Against National Nursing Home Chain” as well as the July 1 wpxi.com article (with video) titled “Pennsylvania AG sues operator of 14 nursing homes.”

The alleged neglect in nursing home care include various deficiencies, including these as seen in the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s press release titled “Attorney General Kane announces legal action against Golden Living nursing homes“:

  • Continent residents left in diapers because they were unable to obtain assistance going to the bathroom.
  • Incontinent residents left in soiled diapers, in their own feces or urine, for extended periods of time.
  • Residents at risk for bedsores from not being turned every two hours as required.
  • Residents not receiving range of motion exercises.
  • Residents not receiving showers or other hygiene services as required.
  • Residents being woken at 5 a.m. or earlier to be washed and dressed for the day.
  • Residents not being timely dressed in order to attend their meals.
  • Residents not being escorted to the dining hall and sometimes missing meals entirely.
  • Long waits for responses to call bells or no responses at all.
  • Staff, under the direction of management or fear of management, falsifying records to indicate residents received services when in fact they did not.
  • Improved staffing when state inspections occurred, leading to deceit about the true conditions at the facility.
  • The investigation also included a review of staffing levels self-reported by Golden Living facilities and deficiencies cited in surveys conducted by the state Department of Health.

An excerpt from the wpxi.com article:

“Defendants’ staffing practices cost residents their dignity and comfort, and jeopardized their health and safety,” the attorney general’s complaint said.

The lawsuit said the parent company of the “enormously profitable” Golden Living facilities was “unjustly enriched” and it asked the court to order payback of that money from the 14 Golden Living centers named in the complaint.

Elder abuse can be defined in a variety of ways.  In general, it is intentional or negligent acts by a caregiver or other trusted individual that causes harm to a vulnerable elder.  On this site, the Elder Abuse page discusses various aspects regarding elder abuse.

Recently, a woman from Evanston has been charged with felony neglect of the elderly.  The charges have to do with the woman’s (Margaret M. Flaherty) neglect in the care of her mother.

Various media sources discuss the charges.  One article is from the Chicago Tribune, in a June 13, 2015, and is titled “Evanston woman accused of neglecting mother.”

Illinois Nursing Home Accident Leads To Neglect Lawsuit

Nursing home neglect can take many forms, and often neglect is caused by improper use of equipment and/or staff that is not properly trained.

The May 12, 2015 wrex.com article (with video) titled “Digging Deeper:  Rochelle nursing home sued for negligence in resident’s death” discusses alleged negligence regarding the care of Dolores Hummel, a resident at the Rochelle Rehabilitation and Health Care Center in Rochelle, Illinois.

Two notable excerpts from the article include:

Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) records say nurses noticed Dolores needed some oxygen so a nurse grabbed an oxygen canister and hooked the tubing up to her face. Then. left the room. Moments later IDPH documents say Dolores began screaming, “Help me. Get it off”. A nurse says  “…The canister was spewing a white substance that looked like snow… (Hummel’s) “left ear, both cheeks, and under her nose were fire red.”

Pure liquid oxygen was burning Dolores at negative 297 degrees.  Despite second degree burns she was not taken to the hospital. Gayle rushed to the nursing home to see her mother two days after the incident, when her sister called her telling her how serious their mother’s injuries were.

also:

According to state documents, staff didn’t know how to use liquid oxygen and the facility didn’t train its staff properly to use liquid oxygen.  13 WREX reached out to the nursing home for comment. Our calls were not returned,  but in the IDPH documents an administrator calls the incident a “freak accident”.

Additional details and possible updates can be seen in the wrex.com article mentioned above.

Lawsuit Filed Regarding Fatal Illinois Nursing Home Accident

The March 23, 2015 post, titled “Investigation Of Illinois Nursing Home Resident’s Death,” discussed the circumstances surrounding the March 12 death of Juanita Simmons at an Illinois nursing home, the Midwest Rehabilitation and Respiratory Center in Belleville.  This nursing home accident allegedly involved Simmons falling down a flight of stairs in a wheelchair after a fire door was opened.  Additional allegations regarding the accident, regarding various aspects as to how the nursing home handled the situation, have also been publicized.

An Illinois nursing home lawsuit has been filed regarding this fatal incident.  The lawsuit was filed April 2 in St. Clair Circuit Court, against Midwest Rehabilitation and Respiratory Center LLC.

An excerpt from the April 22, 2015 Madison Record article titled “Nursing home accused of misrepresenting facts in patient’s fatal stair fall“:

The complaint argues that the defendant removed the decedent’s body from the scene of the accident without notifying authorities and further misrepresented the facts by claiming the facility had notified Simmons’ daughter.

The suit states that as a result of the accident, Simmons endured pain and suffering, mental anguish, emotional distress, loss of dignity, and disability in the time up until her death.

Roth claims the defendant violated the Illinois Nursing Home Care Act and the Illinois Survival Act. She also alleges conscious pain and suffering, wrongful death and spoliation of evidence.

Cook County Wrongful Death Lawsuit Filed Against Nursing Home

There has been a wrongful death lawsuit filed against an Illinois nursing home regarding the alleged treatment received by a nursing home resident.  The lawsuit was filed in the Circuit Court of Cook County against Symphony of Crestwood by Robert Hudson on behalf of his late wife, Catherine Hudson.

Various deficiencies of care are alleged in the lawsuit, as are various injuries Catherine Hudson sustained.

An excerpt from the April 21, 2015 Oak Forest Patch article titled “Family Files Wrongful Death Suit Against Crestwood Nursing Home“:

Robert Hudson, of Chicago, filed a wrongful death suit on behalf of his late wife, Catherine Hudson on Friday afternoon in the Circuit Court of Cook County. The suit was filed against Symphony of Crestwood, a nursing home located at 14255 South Cicero Avenue in Crestwood, Ill. The suit alleged that Symphony was responsible for Catherine’s development of pressure sores, a knee fracture, and the improper reinsertion of a gastrostomy tube that caused an infection and eventually led to her death.

Another excerpt:

“As a family, we decided to turn our anger into action,” added Robert. “We decided to file a lawsuit in hope of exposing the nursing home to bring this terrible mishap to the public’s attention.”

The Daily Southtown (Chicago Tribune) article of April 21, 2015, titled “Crestwood nursing home sued over woman’s death” also discusses the lawsuit and its allegations regarding nursing home neglect.  An excerpt:

Hudson had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and required assistance with daily activities, and the staff at the nursing home had developed a plan of care to address her needs, but that plan wasn’t adhered to by staff members, according to the lawsuit.

Additional details regarding this Circuit Court Of Cook County nursing home lawsuit can be found in the Patch and Chicago Tribune articles mentioned above.

Rehabilitation Services Offered By Nursing Homes

On April 14, 2015, the New York Times published an article titled “In Race for Medicare Dollars, Nursing Home Care May Lag.”

The article focuses on how some nursing homes are focusing on offering short-term rehabilitation services, even though the quality of care may not be adequate.

An excerpt:

But in a cutthroat race for Medicare dollars, nursing homes are turning to amenities like those to lure patients who are leaving a hospital and need short-term rehabilitation after an injury or illness, rather than long-term care at the end of life.

Even as nursing homes are busily investing in luxury living quarters, however, the quality of care is strikingly uneven. And it is clear that many of the homes are not up to the challenge of providing the intensive medical care that rehabilitation requires. Many are often short on nurses and aides and do not have doctors on staff.

A report released in 2014 by the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of the Inspector General found that 22 percent of Medicare patients who stayed in a nursing facility for 35 days or less experienced harm as a result of their medical care. An additional 11 percent suffered temporary injury. The report estimated that Medicare spent $2.8 billion on hospital treatment in 2011 because of harm experienced in nursing facilities.

also:

Competition for these patients has become intense because Medicare, the health insurance program for older adults, pays 84 percent more for short-term patients than nursing homes typically get from Medicaid, the health insurance program for the poor, for long-term residents.

At the same time, hospitals are trying to cut costs by discharging some patients early — like those who have had hip replacement or heart surgery, for example. Not quite ready to go home, they need continuing care somewhere. And for older adults, Medicare usually pays the bill.

The article gives examples of those who have allegedly not received proper care, including incidents that have led to harm of nursing home residents, including death.  Nursing home lawsuits and verdicts are also mentioned.

Additional details can be found in the New York Times article mentioned above.

Investigation Of Illinois Nursing Home Resident’s Death

The March 12, 2015 death of a nursing home resident (Juanita Simmons) at the Midwest Rehabilitation and Respiratory Center in Belleville has prompted an investigation.

An excerpt from the March 18, 2015 Belleville-News Democrat article titled “Investigation opens into Belleville nursing home death as sisters recall abuse“:

The St. Clair County Coroner’s Office has an “open and active” investigation into the death of Simmons, who was found dead Thursday morning at Midwest Rehabilitation and Respiratory Center, 727 N. 17th St. in Belleville. Nursing home administrator Rebecca Garcia could not be reached, and previously declined comment.

The article discusses alleged mistreatment and potential nursing home abuse of Simmons, and also highlights 20 complaints filed with the Illinois Department of Public Health against Midwest in the past year.

A subsequent bnd.com article, that of March 21, 2015, titled “Owner of Belleville nursing home where resident was found dead operates 10 facilities with one-star rating” discusses various aspects of Senior Healthcare Management, which operates Midwest Rehabilitation and Respiratory Center.

An excerpt from this article:

The owner of a Belleville nursing home, where an 85-year-old woman was found dead strapped to a wheelchair at the bottom of a flight of stairs, owns 12 other nursing homes in Illinois — 10, like Midwest, have a one-star rating.

This article highlights a number of Illinois nursing home abuse lawsuits.  As well, wrongful death lawsuits filed in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Midwest Rehabilitation & Respiratory Center in Belleville are listed.

For those unaware of the nursing home rating system, this rating system is discussed in numerous places within this site, including the June 2, 2014 post titled “Conditions Within A Chicago-Area 1-Star Nursing Home.”

Nursing home ratings can be found at the Medicare.gov Nursing Home Compare site.
