St. Martha Manor

St. Martha Manor, 4621 North Racine Avenue, Chicago, IL 60640

St. Martha Manor, located on Chicago’s North Side has an overall average rating. The facility has 132 certified beds that allow Medicaid recipients to become residents. The ownership, a corporation, is for profit. The last standard inspection was done on November 12, 2015. St. Martha Manor fell short by failing to inform the physician promptly of a significant change in one of three residents in a sample interview.

In this instance it was reported that a resident was seen and heard groaning and moaning seated in a chair at the side of his bed. The resident was tearing up stating that “I can’t breathe and I can’t get into my bed.” An individual staff member was seen walking away and when asked why she didn’t assist the resident, she stated she is not a nurse but would call one. Just three minutes later a nurse did approach the resident and determined that the oxygen tank at bedside was empty. The nurse left and returned with another oxygen tank, but that too was found to be empty. It took a total of 25 minutes before a full oxygen tank was brought in. More than thirty minutes after the resident was first seen moaning and groaning the blood oxygenation saturation had dipped to just 89%. The staff did not notify the resident’s physician and no follow up evaluation was recorded. The given reason for not notifying the physician was that the nursing staff was waiting for a full oxygen tank. It has been the policy of St. Martha Manor to notify a resident’s physician in a case of a change in a resident’s condition or status.

In this observation it was shown that the facility failed to identify that a restraint was in use and failed to follow restraint policy for one of three residents. In another observation one resident had both side rails of the bed raised. The resident was unable to lower either rail. The assistant director of nursing at St. Martha Manor said that the rails were raised to prevent falls. However there was no document of a physician order that this resident be constrained this way. The facility was found to have failed to ensure that bed mattress for two residents were adequate. Here the mattresses were worn, thin and in disrepair. The St. Martha Manor policy on mattresses is that staff is to report any deficiency in the bedding of a resident. The mattresses were extremely thin and should have been replaced.

The staffing category for St. Martha Manor was rated below average. The total number of licensed nurse staff hours per resident per day was just 56 minutes compared to one hour and 34 minutes for the Illinois average and one hour and 41 minutes which is the national average. Breaking out the registered nursing hours per resident per day was just 24 minutes whereas the state average was 57 minutes and the U.S. average was 51 minutes.

St. Martha Manor fell short when it came to the percent of short-stay residents assessed and given, appropriately the season flu vaccine at just 30.8% of the time. This percentage was a lot lower than the Illinois and U.S. averages. This facility was also found to be deficient compared to the state and national averages when it came to giving the appropriate pneumococcal vaccine to short-stay residents. St. Martha Manor was shown to deliver this vaccine just 18.9% of the times where Illinois nursing homes on average would deliver the vaccine 78.6% of the time.

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.
