Shelbyville Illinois Nursing Home Safety Concerns

To ensure families are fully informed of the level of care every nursing home provides, the state of Illinois and Medicare.com routinely update their long-term care home database systems with info on violations, citations, and deficiencies.

According to Medicare, this facility maintains an overall rating of two out of five stars, including three out of five stars concerning health inspections, two out of five stars for staffing issues and one out of five stars for quality measures.

  • Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date August 25, 2017
  • The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to supervise [a resident] by leaving [the resident] unattended during toileting. This failure resulted in [the resident] falling and sustaining a pubic ramus fracture. The facility also failed to safely maintain toileting equipment (seat riser) for [another resident], which resulted in [that resident] falling while self-toileting.”

    A review of the moderately, cognitively impaired resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) indicated that the resident needs “the extensive assist of two when transferring and toileting.” The document reveals that the resident uses a wheelchair “for mobility purposes.”

    A report titled Incident Fall Log documented that the resident sustained a fall while in their room, resulting in a hip fracture. The document indicates that the resident was “using the restroom and was providing hygiene herself, lost balance, and fell.” The resident “complained of back and hip pain [and was] sent to the emergency room.”

    A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) stated that a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) reported that the resident was found in the bathroom on the floor “in front of the toilet lying on [their] left side.” The CNA stated that the resident was “crying out ‘get me up,’ complaining of back and hip pain.” The document states that there “were no witnesses to the incident.”

  • Failure to Develop Programs That Investigate, Control and Keep Infections from Spreading – citation #F441 date August 25, 2017
  • The facility “failed to prevent cross-contamination of open wounds for [one resident] and cross-contamination of an indwelling urinary catheter drainage bag for [another resident].”

    The surveyors reviewed a laboratory report for the first resident that documented a wound assessment process in the resident’s left lower leg as a “heavy growth of [highly contagious] Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).” The investigators noted that the resident “had an infection control bureau set up outside [their] room, which contained isolation gowns and gloves for use when facility staff performed direct care for [a resident].”

    A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) documented that the resident “had a total of fourteen wounds on the left hip and left buttocks [including] four closed, scabbed areas and two new dime-sized sheared, open areas to the left hip.” The investigators observed the LPN moving from site to site using the same gloved hands or applying medicated wound paste, providing an opportunity for cross-contamination.

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
