The Illinois Department of Health and Human Services routinely inspects Illinois nursing homes at least every 18 months. On March 17, 2016, a survey was completed by the department regarding an inspection of Parkshore Estates Nursing & Rehab. Based on observation, interview and record review, the facility failed to provide care and services in a dignified manner for 3 residents. One of the 3 residents was admitted to the facility with a diagnosis of diabetes mellitus, dementia and several other medical issues. During the initial tour on March 14, 2016, the resident was found sitting in a wheelchair in the hall without shoes on. There was no leg rests on the wheelchair. A certified nursing assistant pushed the wheelchair that the resident was sitting in from his room to the dining room with the resident’s feet dragging on the floor without shoes.

On March 15, 2016, the Director of Nursing stated that the chair should have included a leg rest and at no time should the resident be placed with his feet on the floor. The Director of Nursing said that a leg rest would be put on the wheelchair. The only time the resident’s feet are to be on the floor in a wheelchair is if they are propelling themselves. Continuing the observation of this resident, it was found that he was walking from the shower without shoes, no gown or robe and just undershorts openly exposed to residents, visitors and staff in the facility hall. The resident stated that “no, I never get assistance or help with my shower, or shoes to wear from the shower.”

The Restorative Director stated that the resident should not be exposed in the hall and said that staff would find someone to help the resident in the future.

On March 15, 2016, another resident was sitting in the hall near his room with white socks on without shoes. The resident stated that “I have shoes, they are a size too small and tight. I don’t have any more.”

The social service director stated that if this resident needs some shoes, she would try to get them. “We get lots of donations, but I didn’t know R7 needed shoes. R7 had just got shoes when I first started here. R7 had diabetic shoes with a black strap. It’s the CNA's (Certified Nursing Assistant) and nurses that inform the social service director what the residents need. I’m going to take care of getting R7 shoes now that I know.”

In the dining room it was found that a CNA was attempting to feed 2 residents. It was discovered that the policy of this facility, Parkshore Estates Nursing & Rehab, does not address staff members feeding residents in a dignified manner.

Based on observation, interview and record review, the facility failed to ensure that call lights were accessible for 2 residents reviewed for a combination of needs in a sample.

Lastly it was found based on observation, interview and record review, the facility, Parkshore Estates, failed to provide and maintain sanitary residents’ personal belongings and care items through improper storage and failed to provide cleanliness of residents’ rooms. This deficiency has the potential to affect 4 of 8 residents in a sample of 30 reviewed for housekeeping and maintenance services and 12 residents from the supplemental sample.

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.
