The facility is located in Norridge, Illinois, which is just south of O’Hare International Airport near Chicago’s northwest side. The ownership of Central Baptist Village is church related.

The Illinois Department of Health and Human Services regularly inspects Illinois nursing home on average every 18 months.

Based on the Illinois Department of Health and Human Services’ survey of June 30, 2016, the facility failed to provide privacy to residents during incontinence care. The facility also failed to contain a resident’s indwelling urinary catheter collection bag in a privacy bag. On June 29, 2016, a certified nursing aide (CNA) provided incontinence care to a resident in a room. The resident’s bed was located closest to the door of her room and the resident shared her room with another resident.

A gentleman in the room identified himself as a family member of one of the two residents. The resident’s family members stepped out of the room and stood just outside the door of the room. The CNA did not pull the privacy curtain around the resident’s bed during the incontinence care. The facility’s undated job description for CNAs shows: Specific duties and/or responsibilities: ensures privacy by closing cubical curtains and/or doors during direct care; knocking on resident’s doors before entering their room; and maintaining confidentiality of resident incrimination.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
“We were devastated when our 31 year-old son was killed by a negligent driver. Kreisman Law Offices did everything to help us through this very difficult time, including coming out to the house several times which was a comfort. My wife and I were extremely pleased with Mr. Kreisman’s compassion and care for this very tragic and troubling time.” C.B.
★★★★★
“Bob Kreisman did everything possible in handling the trial of this case. It was devastating that I traumatically lost my leg above the knee in this truck accident. However, it was not an easy case to win. His staff was so prepared for the trial that it was not surprising that the settlement offers continued to rise until we finally accepted the multi-million settlement while the jury was still deciding the case. My wife and I were delighted that we could secure our future with this settlement. We thank Mr. Kreisman and his incredible staff for working so hard for our benefit.” T.P.
★★★★★
“My mother died because doctors dropped the ball. I called Robert Kreisman and he immediately set up an appointment for my entire family. We met at his offices and I was very comfortable that he would do the best for my dad and my brothers. He spent hours with all of us in preparing for depositions and he hired top notch experts, all of which contributed to an incredible settlement before trial. I know that he is dedicated to his cases and particularly to the people he works for and the people who work with him. He continues to be generous in contributing annually to my mother’s memory and to make known to the public the signs and symptoms of brain tumors.” V.S.
★★★★★
“My dad was ignored and mistreated at the nursing home that we placed him in. It didn’t take long for us to realize that we made a big mistake, particularly after my dad developed these terrible bedsores. We transferred him as we were contacting Mr. Kreisman. He was referred to us by a lawyer we have known for a long time and respect his opinion. Mr. Kreisman and his staff worked tirelessly to resolve this case. We were fortunate to have his services and will recommend him to anyone.” T.J.
