Columbus Manor Residential Care Home

There are nearly 200 Chicago area nursing homes. The nursing homes, for the most part, have certified beds, participation in Medicaid and comply by the Illinois Nursing Home Care Act in most circumstances.

The Columbus Manor Residential Care Home is located at 5107 W. Jackson Blvd., Chicago. It has 189 certified beds. The Medicare.gov website, which is an official U.S. government site for Medicare, rates Chicago’s many nursing homes. Columbus Manor has an overview rating that is below average. According to the government website, there are 151 residents whereas the Illinois average nursing home contains 93 residents. Statistics at Columbus Manor Residential Care Home does not provide the staffing hours for physical therapy.

According to the data available, Columbus Manor has not received any fines for violations of state and federal law in the last three years.

Members of a family of a nursing home resident often ask whether or not a complaint should be filed with the Illinois Department of Health. My answer is that if you think there is a healthcare, treatment or services issue that is not being attended to for the nursing home resident, by all means notify the Illinois Department of Health to report any such irregularities whether it is not enough staff, unsafe or unsanitary conditions, dietary problems or mistreatment or abuse of a resident.

According to health inspections Columbus Manor has a below average rating for health inspections, nurse staffing and measures of medical quality of care. The overall rating is a measure of how well this home met health and safety standards for food preparation and other nursing home activities in the last three Illinois state inspections. The inspections are done at least every 15 months.

There is no available data for a very important aspect of any nursing home facility which is the ratio of nurse staffing to the number and needs of the residents. For example, the national average of the time a registered nurse spends with a resident is 50 minutes. The Illinois average is 56 minutes.

Columbus Manor rates very high when it is reviewed in terms of quality measures, which are the percentages of residents who received their recommended care. That would mean that a doctor’s orders were followed, the resident received in a timely fashion medication as required and received the kind of care a person should receive when suffering from the flu for example. It also received high marks for correctly treating residents who had reported pain, urinary tract infections and developed bed sores. Columbus Manor residents received the pneumococcal vaccine 88.3% of the time compared to the Illinois average of 92.4%. On average, residents received their timely flu vaccine 80.4% of the time, whereas Illinois nursing home residents received the vaccine 93.3% of the time. Actually, the lower percentage reported the better for complying with vaccines. Thus, Columbus Manor has performed admirably in this area whether the resident is a long-term resident or a short-term resident.

In a February 5, 2016 health inspection, Columbus Manor was advised to make several administrative corrections including providing medically-related social service to increase quality of life, provide activities of interest to residents, to be certain that the call system is operational and to make sure that each resident’s drug/medication regimen is followed. These issues affected some or few residents. The date these items were corrected was February 19, 2016.

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.
