Mobile Nursing Home Abuse Attorney

Mobile Nursing Home Injury LawyersThe Mobile nursing home abuse and neglect attorneys of Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC concern ourselves not only with representing the needs of those who have already been injured, but helping the public avoid placing their loved ones into the kinds of environments responsible for harming others. Medicare provides invaluable information about nursing homes to the public, but many people are unaware of how to access this data or don’t think to do so when they are searching for a center to tend to the needs of their loved ones. This is why we have composed a list of facilities for you that have a history of providing substandard care in the hope it will prevent many future cases of abuse.

Mobile Senior Demographics

Mobile is the third largest city in the State of Alabama and considered to be the largest municipality on the Gulf Coast. Its position between New Orleans and St. Petersburg made it an influence throughout history as a trading center and transportation hub. Its port is the twelfth largest in the nation and continues to play an important role in present day. The city is at the heart of a greater metropolitan area serving over 600,000— over 195,000 of which reside within Mobile’s city limits.

Seniors represent a significant portion of Mobile’s population and with many of the Baby Boomer generation looking to retire soon, the senior population may swell from the 13.7% share it currently holds. Seniors looking for ways to connect with their peers, participate in classes, take advantage of lunch programs or remain active through participation in exercise programs can find what they seek at the Connie Hudson Mobile Regional Senior Community Center. For more information, you can call (251) 602-4963. The Center is located at 3201 Hillcrest Road.

Mobile Nursing Homes

Our Mobile nursing injury lawyers created the following directory of nursing centers by using the nursing home compare tool provided by Medicare. Many people are unaware of the fact that Medicare maintains ratings for every nursing center across the country, so we took the time to use the data to highlight only the very worst centers so that you can avoid placing people you care about into environments that are detrimental to their wellbeing.

Sea Breeze Healthcare Center
550 Congress Street
Mobile, AL 36603
(251) 433-5471

Ownership— For profit partnership

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 1 star out of 5

1 star rating

Primary concerns: All of the problems at this center originate with its unacceptable staff levels. For profit companies and partnerships often deploy the tactic of reducing staff levels or withholding funding for training programs in an effort to reduce overhead and increase margins. The result for this center has been numerous health and safety violations, a quality ratings score that reveals disdain toward assessing the needs of patients and a single star staff rating.

Twin Oaks Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center
857 Crawford Lane
Mobile, AL 36617
(251) 476-3420

Ownership— For profit corporation

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 2 stars out of 5

2 star rating

Primary concerns: The health inspection deficiencies experienced at this facility are so numerous and severe that they have brought its overall rating to two stars despite excellent scores in all other areas of evaluation. This means that patients may be exposed to unsanitary conditions, contagious diseases, medication errors, poor nutrition and hydration or the presence of clutter and other environmental hazards.

Springhill Manor Nursing Home

Mobile, AL 36608
(251) 342-5623

Ownership— For profit corporation

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 2 stars out of 5

2 star rating

Primary concerns: The greatest demerit this nursing center received was due to its lack of reasonable quality measures. Medicare provides quality measures ratings based on the willingness and ability of centers to create and execute treatment plans tailored to the needs to individual patients and to keep them comfortable and safe. This facility has let its patients down in this regard.

Mobile, AL 36607
(251) 450-2800

Ownership— For profit corporation

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 2 stars out of 5

2 star rating

Primary concerns: Health and safety concerns are common issues across the nation and this facility is par for the course with its abhorrent health record. More investment needs to be committed to ensuring that protocols are in place to keep patients clean, fed, medicated and protected from environmental hazards in a responsible manner.

Gordon Oaks Health & Rehab
3151-A Knollwood Drive
Mobile, AL 36693
(251) 661-7608

Ownership— For profit corporation

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 1 star out of 5

1 star rating

Primary concerns: One star ratings in both health inspection history and quality measures are revealing of this center’s true motives. Little investment is placed in making sure that your loved ones will be comfortable or safe while profits take priority.

Mobile Nursing and Rehabilitation Center
7020 Bruns Drive
Mobile, AL 36695
(251) 639-1588

Ownership— For profit partnership

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 1 star out of 5

1 star rating

Primary concerns: This is the poorest facility on our list because there isn’t a single area of evaluation for which Medicare offered merits. A one star staff rating, unacceptable health and safety history and lack of quality measures entirely all make it a facility to take off your list for consideration.

Types of Nursing Abuse and Neglect

Our Mobile nursing injury lawyers are currently trying to help the public combat the growing epidemic of negligence and neglect that our country is experiencing as many members of our population begin to enter their senior years. The entry of many for profit chains at the same time that lawmakers began to cut funding to nursing programs at the state and federal levels are responsible for allowing the current nursing care environment we have today. Only by recognizing the types of abuse and holding companies responsible can we promote healthy changes.

The most common forms of nursing abuse include the following.

  • The development of bedsores or infections due to the neglect of staff members. Patients that have mobility problems or present greater risk of infection need to be treated differently than those with no risk. It is often when care or supervision is not provided that problems ensue.
  • Hospitalizations due to falls, medication errors or nutritional deficiencies. Fall prevention begins with risk assessment because many patients are more prone to fall than others and many measures can be taken to reduce risk such as the removal of clutter, supervision of patients and marking of wet floors. Similarly, preventative measures can be taken to limit the number of medication errors and provision of food and liquids that do not meet patients’ dietary needs.
  • Physical, verbal or sexual abuse. These types of abuse are unacceptable even though they are often not perpetrated by staff members themselves. Offenders are often other residents or visitors, which is why proper security measures need to be in place to protect patients. Caregivers may verbally abuse patients being neglected with threats in an attempt to prevent complaints or legal action.

Client Reviews

★★★★★
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa

After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
