Winston Manor Convalescence and Nursing

Winston Manor Convalescence and Nursing, 2155 W. Pierce, Chicago, IL 60622

Winston Manor has 180 certified beds. It participates in Medicare and Medicaid programs. The ownership operates this facility as a for profit business. Its overall rating is above average.

The last full report provided to the official U.S. government site for Medicare from the Department of Health and Human Services was in May 8, 2015. In that report, it was found that the facility failed to prevent avoidable multiple falls, properly utilize a gait belt during transfer of a resident and failed to implement and revise the plan care for one of four residents reviewed for falls from a sample of 24. There was also a note that the facility failed to ensure that safe smoking practices were implemented for 3 residents from the supplemental sample and that it failed to ensure that razor blades were not left unsupervised.

With respect to the risk of falls, Winston Manor failed when the observation of one resident who was being transferred from a wheelchair to a bed was done without the use of a gait belt. In addition, this resident’s bed was noted not to be in the lowest position. These are precautions for fall risk nursing home residents that should always be followed.

There was also a criticism of Winston Manor based on the square footage that is provided on the second, third and fourth floors, each containing three residents. It was noted that one room measured 13 x 18 feet which accommodated 3 residents and their furniture which was considered a violation for failure for the requirement to provide 80 square feet of living space for each resident.

In another observation, it was found that the Winston Manor failed to provide a clean and comfortable and homelike environment for one of three floors.

Lastly, the inspection revealed that the facility failed to periodically review emergency procedures for two of three floors for existing staff and carry out staff drills using the procedures. It was reported that this affected 99 residents out of 153 according to CMS form 672.

Winston Manor rated slightly below average for appropriately and timely giving the pneumonia vaccine and the flu vaccine for long-stay residents. On the other hand it rated higher than the Illinois and U.S. averages on the number of falls that cause a major injury to a resident and for taking care of those residents who lose control of their bowels or bladders.

There was no available date for Winston Manor on the average time each resident receives from a registered nurse, licensed practical nurse, licensed vocational nurse, certified nurse assistant and physical therapist. Staffing is very important. When you or a loved one is considering a nursing home residence for long-term or short-term the number of staff for each resident is vitally important. When visiting a nursing home be sure to ask those many questions about staffing, costs, meals, accommodations, living space, special needs, medical care by physicians and therapy sessions. There is much more to ask. Be sure to visit different facilities to have a basis to compare one nursing home to others.

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.
