Fail To Provide Condoms To HIV ResidentsThe Oklahoma Health Department has fined the Whispering Pines Nursing Center for multiple instances of nursing home abuse and neglect.  Among the allegations, the nursing home was cited for:

  • Forcing a patient into a shower while fully clothed
  • Failing to investigate complaints of physical abuse among residents
  • Failing to provide adequate training to nursing home staff
  • Failing to provide condoms to sexually active HIV positive nursing home residents

The health department is recommending Whispering Pines immediately correct its dangerous conditions or the facility will not be permitted to accept new Medicare and Medicaid patients.  Read more about this Oklahoma nursing home 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.
