Midway Neurological/Rehab Center

Midway Neurological/Rehab Center is rated much below average. The facility is located in Bridgeview, Illinois which is a Chicago suburb west of the city limits. Midway Neurological/Rehab Center has 404 certified beds. It participates in both Medicare and Medicaid. The ownership of the facility is a for-profit corporation. Midway Neurological/Rehab Center is not in a continuing care retirement community. The facility has a resident and family council.

Resident and family councils can facilitate communications with the nursing home staff. The law requires nursing homes to allow councils to be set up by residents and their families. If a nursing home does not have a resident and family council, the resident or family member should ask the nursing home administrator why that is the case. It is also important to talk with a council president to learn about how the nursing home has acted on different issues.

The Illinois Department of Health and Human Services regularly inspects Illinois nursing homes on average every 18 months. A standard health inspection was completed on June 30, 2016.

The health inspections at Midway Neurological/Rehab Center found deficiencies in quality care, resident rights, nutrition and dietary, pharmacy services and environmental.

In addition, the facility underwent a fire safety inspection which resulted in 22 fire safety deficiencies.

The fire safety inspection found deficiencies in building construction, corridor walls indoors, vertical openings, smoke compartmentation and control, hazardous area, exit and egress, emergency plans and fire drills, fire alarm systems, automatic sprinkler systems, building service equipment, furnishing and decorations, medical gases and anesthetizing areas and electrical.

Complaints in facility-reported incidents in the past 3 years showed a variety of nursing home issues. For example, an inspection that took place in October of 2013 found a deficiency in protecting each resident from all abuse, physical punishment, and being separated from others. An inspection held on February 26, 2016 found that there was a need to provide necessary care and services to maintain the highest well-being of each resident. These complaints are corrected. In the case of the February 2016 complaint inspection, it was corrected by March 14, 2016. Another issue raised was when a resident is in need of outside medical care. The deficiency was found that there was no immediate report of a resident’s family and doctor of an injury or decline that would affect the resident. Again, this complaint report was shown to have been corrected just days later.

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.
