Evanston Woman Charged With Neglect Of Elderly

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.”

An excerpt:

Flaherty “knowingly failed to provide hygiene, nutrition, prescribed medication, and medical care and treatment to maintain her mother’s health, causing the victim’s pre-existing physical health to deteriorate,” according to a complaint in the court files.

In court, prosecutors said she did not give her mother a bath or change her sheets in several days, and her mother dropped in weight to 80 pounds and was unable to walk.

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.

Additional details and possible updates concerning this Illinois nursing home accident lawsuit can be found in the Madison Record article mentioned above, as well as the March 23 post.

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.

Deaths Of South Holland Assisted Living Residents Under Investigation

A death of a South Holland assisted living facility (Holland Home) resident has been ruled a homicide by the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.  Toxic levels of two painkilling drugs are reported to have contributed to the death of the 98-year-old resident, Dorothy Byrd.

Byrd was among six residents at Holland Home who were hospitalized on February 3, 2015 after the residents experienced respiratory and blood pressure issues.

Of the six residents, two other residents who were hospitalized have also died earlier this month.  Those residents have been identified by South Holland Police as Robert Rundin, 88, and Leon Krynicki, 98.

An excerpt from the March 18, 2015 Daily Southtown (Chicago Tribune) article titled “South Holland assisted living facility resident’s death ruled a homicide; two others also have died“:

Police opened an investigation of the incident after Byrd died. Byrd’s death was caused by morphine and hydrocodone toxicity, combined with hypertensive and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, according to Cook County medical examiner’s office spokesman Frank Shuftan.

The deaths remain under investigation.

Additional details and possible updates concerning these deaths of Illinois assisted living facility residents can be seen in a variety of media sources, including the Chicago Tribune article mentioned above, as well as the March 17 McKnight’s article titled “Homicide charges follow sudden illness of six assisted living residents.”

Lawsuit Filed Against Illinois Nursing Home Concerning Bedsore

As frequently mentioned on this site, a variety of adverse health consequences can arise if bedsores (also frequently referred to as bed sores, pressure sores, and decubitus ulcers) are not immediately and properly treated.  It is because of these probable adverse health consequences that the occurrence of bedsores and their improper treatment is often the cause of lawsuits to be filed against nursing homes, both in Illinois as well as nationally.

A recent Illinois nursing home lawsuit concerning the formation and adverse health consequences of a decubitus ulcer is discussed in the February 3, 2015 Madison Record article titled “Woman blames Alton nursing home for relative’s ulcer.”  The lawsuit was filed by Sara Kleine on January 20, 2015 in Madison County Circuit Court, against the Alton Rehabilitation and Nursing Center and Steven Blisko.  The lawsuit regarded the alleged nursing home neglect regarding the care of Sharon Dunahee.

An excerpt from the article:

Because of the ulcer, the suit says Dunahee required surgical intervention, which led to a deteriorating physical condition. Klein claims Dunahee incurred significant medical costs, endured great pain and anguish and suffered a severe and permanent disability.

Kleine blames the nursing home staff for contributing to Dunahee’s injuries, saying they negligently failed to properly notify her next-of-kin regarding a significant deterioration in her physical status, failed to care for her in a manner that enhanced her dignity and quality of life and didn’t employ sufficient staff to provide adequate medical care.

Additional details regarding this Illinois nursing home lawsuit can be found in a variety of media sources including the Madison Record article mentioned above.

Illinois Nursing Home Fire Injures Four People

As discussed on the “Chicago Nursing Home Burns” page, there are a variety of ways in which nursing home residents can get burned in Chicago area nursing homes.  Of course, one of the main ways nursing home residents get burned and otherwise injured is from fires that occur in nursing homes.

There are many reasons that fires start in nursing homes, but if proper safety procedures and maintenance are instituted in the nursing home, the risk of such fires should be greatly diminished if not eliminated.

A nursing home fire broke out in a nursing home facility in unincorporated Cook County near Park Ridge on Thursday, February 19, 2015.  Four people were injured and hospitalized as a result of this nursing home fire.

An excerpt from the February 19, 2015 Chicago Tribune article titled “Four hospitalized following Maine Township nursing home fire“:

The fire was reported around 8:15 a.m. inside a second-floor room at the three-story Ballard Respiratory and Rehabilitation Center, 9300 Ballard Road, in unincorporated Maine Township.

According to the Chicago Tribune article as well as other media sources, four people were taken to local hospitals, primarily hurt from smoke inhalation.  Two of the four people, said to be nursing home residents, required advanced life support.

The fire was contained to one unit, due largely in part to the building’s sprinkler system.

The cause of the fire has yet to be determined.

Additional details and possible updates concerning this nursing home fire and resulting accident injuries can be seen a variety of media sources, including the Chicago Tribune article mentioned above as well as the February 19 CBS Chicago article titled “Four Hospitalized After Fire At Des Plaines Nursing Home.”

Illinois Bill To Allow Nursing Home Surveillance Cameras

In the September 8, 2014 post (“Proposal To Allow Audio And Video Monitoring In Illinois Nursing Homes“) a proposal by Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan was discussed.  That proposal would allow video cameras and audio recording devices in Illinois nursing homes, subject to various provisions, as discussed.

Currently, under Illinois law, Illinois nursing home residents are not allowed to have video cameras installed their rooms.  However, as discussed in the above-mentioned post, the proposed surveillance could be used to help resolve disputes about suspected Illinois nursing home abuse and/or negligence, and presumably would also serve as a deterrent.

Today (February 13, 2015) a bill has been introduced in Springfield by Rep. Greg Harris, D-Chicago.  This bill would allow cameras in Illinois nursing home residents’ rooms if they want them and are willing to pay for them.  As well, various other conditions would also have to be met.   The bill specifies that the video surveillance recordings could be used as evidence in court proceedings.  The bill was drafted by the office of Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan.

The bill, and the conditions under which the cameras would be allowed, is discussed in various media sources, including the February 13, 2015 Chicago Tribune article titled “Nursing home room monitoring cameras would be allowed under Illinois bill” as well as the February 13 abc7news.com article (with video) titled “I-Team:  Law Would Allow Nursing Home Surveillance Cameras.”

An excerpt from the Chicago Tribune article:

The Illinois Department of Public Health receives about 19,000 calls alleging neglect or abuse each year and investigates about 5,000 of them, according to the attorney general’s office.

“Unfortunately, people who are disabled or people who are elderly and vulnerable can get abused,” Harris said. “We’ve seen it and it’s a really sad state of affairs, and anything we can do to prevent that happening is just so important.”

The abc7news.com article also discussed the bill, and highlights various cases of alleged Illinois nursing home abuse.

Both of the articles mentioned above state that currently camera monitoring in nursing homes is legal in four states.
