First Quarter 2009 Illinois Nursing Home Violators Released

First Quarter 2009 Illinois Nursing Home Violators Thirty-two Illinois nursing homes have the dubious honor of making it to the first-quarter 2009 ‘violator list’.  The list is comprised of facilities that the Illinois Department of Public Health has initiated action against. The list is a reminder to residents and families that they must be diligent in looking out for their loved ones– regardless of a facilities impressive track record.  While some of the facilities on this quarter’s list are ‘regulars’ others appear for the first time and generally have a good track record. Among this quarter’s more notable violators:

  • Three Alden facilities- Alden Alma Nelson Manor, Alden of Waterford and Alden Village North
  • Two Asta Care facilities- Asta Care Center Bloomington, Asta Care Center of Rockford
  • Beverly Farm Foundation- two citations for ‘Type A’ violations totaling $30,000
  • Two Clearbrook Facilities- Clearbrook-Wright Home and Clearbrook East
  • Two Rest Haven facilities- Rest Haven West Christian Nursing Center and Rest Haven Central
  • Two violations for Southview Manor- The Chicago nursing home received two ‘Type A’ citations within five weeks on and fines totaling $20,000
  • Two violations for Westshire Nursing & Rehab Center in Cicero, Illinois

For all the criticism heaped on government today, I always remain impressed with the quality of work folks at the Illinois Department of Health provide with respect the the inspection of these facilities. Obviously, many of these inspections take place when facilities are inhospitable to say the least! Below are the Illinois nursing homes appearing on this Quarterly Report.  We will be providing more detailed information on many of these facilities under an upcoming ‘nursing home spotlight’ section to our blog.

    As a former employee of the Asta Care Center of Bloomington,Il. I can say first hand how horrible the facility is towards residents and their own employee’s. Some resident’s after having the facility pay their bills only have $30 leftover to last them the rest of the month. The D.O.N makes threats towards resident’s in regards to their smoking rights. Some employee’s get treated better than the rest. Some employee’s even get fired or “self terminated” due to the fact that the employer don’t follow their own rules and regulations noted in the handbook. There has been several incident’s where resident’s medicaion/pills have come up missing. I mean it is a mess when it comes to the ants, and roaches. They are everywhere. Breakrooms, bathrooms, resident’s rooms, nurse’s station; you name they’re there.

Justia Lawyer Rating for Jonathan Rosenfeld

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
