Lets Award The Under-Acheiving

Iowa Governor’s Quality Care In Heath Care Industry Three out of seven nursing home featured in the 2008 Iowa Governor’s Quality Care In Heath Care Industry have numerous violations from federal and state authorities.  The three facilities have been cited for problems in meeting minimum health and safety requirements and have been cited by state inspectors for medication errors, failure to follow physicians’ orders, unsanitary conditions, or failure to treat serious problems, such as broken bones.

Some of the ‘award winning facilities’ also had violations for failing to provide the prescribed amount of food to residents; unsanitary food service; failure to lock a medication cabinet in the unit for mentally impaired residents; failure to verify that two nurse aides had proper training; and six fire-safety violations.

The above safety violations are not minor nor do they require a savvy investigator to determine the nature of the violations.  Rather, these facilities demonstrate the need to do an on-site visit before placing any loved one in a nursing home.  Read more about the Iowa ‘award winning’  facilities that  fail to  meet  basic safety standards here.

Client Reviews

  • Having worked in the medical field, I appreciated the way that Mr. Rosenfeld and his staff approached my family’s situation. The combination of medical knowledge and legal expertise was indeed the winning combination for our case.
    ★★★★★
  • While nothing can change the way our mother was treated at a nursing facility, I do feel a sense of vindication that the facility was forced to pay for their treatment. I am certain that they would never have done had my attorneys not held their feet to the fire.
    ★★★★★
  • I was very nervous about initiating a claim against my mother’s nursing facility, but Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers took care of everything from getting the medical records to going to court. I felt like I had real advocates on my side. That meant a lot to me.
    ★★★★★
  • After a horrific episode at a nursing home, my sister and I spoke to a number of law firms. No one took the time to answer our questions and explain the legal process like Mr. Rosenfeld. He did a tremendous job on our case and I can see why he’s earned the praise he has from clients and peers.
    ★★★★★
  • I liked the fact that I could call the office and ask questions about the legal process at anytime. I could tell that my case was in good hands. I think that this was reflected in my father’s settlement was more than I anticipated the case ever being worth.
