The Illinois Department of Health and Human Services will customarily inspect nursing home facilities in Illinois every 18 months. For Lakeview Rehab and Nursing Center there was an inspection on April 23, 2015. In the summary statement of deficiencies, it was observed on interview and record review that the facility failed to have call lights accessible for two of four residents. In this sample of residents reviewed, it was found that during the initial tour in one resident’s room, the call light was noted to be placed behind the bed, hanging well out of the reach of the resident who required special needs. During the same tour, another resident’s call light was also hanging off the wall behind the bed well out of reach of the resident who was in bed and required total assistance. The explanation given was that the certified nurse’s assistant who cares for the residents may have placed the call lights out of reach of the residents during morning rounds.

In this same inspection tour, it was found that based on observations, interviews and records reviewed, the facility failed to ensure appropriate care rendered to feeding tubes for 2 of 5 residents. These feeding tubes are called gastric tubes. During the initial tour with the business office manager, it was observed that a resident was sitting in a chair near the bed but the feeding tube was off and the feeding tube was disconnected from the resident. The tip of the feeding tube was exposed to air and there was no cover to it at all. The nurse in charge of this resident stated that the adapter should be covered and she just forgot to put a cover on it.

During the environmental tour, the feeding bag for another resident was hanging at the bedside with the tip openly exposed to potential contamination. The policy and procedure for the facility dated 11/1/11 documented, education materials provided to the professional nurses at orientation and annually thereafter regarding assessment and care of residents receiving gastro feedings. There was also a criticism of the facility’s failure to maintain drug records and properly marked and labeled drugs and other similar products according to accepted professional standards.

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.”
★★★★★
“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.
