Lawsuit Filed Concerning Alleged Neglect At Joliet Nursing Home

As often discussed on this site, pressure sores (also commonly referred to as pressure injuries, pressure ulcers, bed sores, and bedsores) are often a sign of neglect in health care.  There are many steps and actions that can be taken to prevent pressure sores.  Additionally, should such pressure injuries develop, immediate and proper care should be received in order to prevent their worsening.

If prompt and proper medical attention is not provided to those that have developed pressure sores, the affliction can lead to a variety of adverse health consequences, and in some cases death.

Because of the serious and often long-lasting effects resulting from pressure injuries – and the frequency of such injuries leading to death – lawsuits against health care facilities such as nursing homes in which pressure sores develop are common.

A wrongful death lawsuit filed against a Joliet nursing home over the alleged development of bedsores and subsequent death of a nursing home resident is discussed in the April 19, 2017 Joliet Patch article titled “Negligence at Joliet Nursing Home Led to Women’s Death:  Lawsuit” as well as the April 18 Cook County Record article titled “Suit filed against against Fairview Care Center of Joliet over negligence allegations.”

An excerpt from the Joliet Patch article:

From Aug. 30, 2013 and Sept. 20, 2013 Sylvia Raucci allegedly developed “multiple pressure sores that led to her death on Sept. 29, 2013” at Fairview Care Center of Joliet LLC, according to the Cook County Record.

Rosemarie Barry, an independent administrator of Raucci’s estate, claims staff “failed to properly and accurately assess her decedent’s condition and failed in supervising the care and treatment to prevent the development and deterioration of multiple pressure sores,” according to the report.

Additional details regarding this lawsuit over the alleged development of pressure sores and subsequent death can be seen in the sources mentioned above.

Bedsores And The Possibility Of Serious Infections

While bedsores (also typically referred to as pressure ulcers, pressure sores, and pressure injuries) can develop in many different situations, they are most likely to develop under certain conditions.  As well, individuals with certain characteristics and health conditions are particularly susceptible.

As often discussed on this site, bedsores are often a sign of health care neglect.  If prompt and proper medical attention is not provided to those that have developed pressure injuries, the affliction can lead to a variety of adverse health consequences, and in some cases death.

One of the most serious adverse developments that can happen to those with pressure sores is infections.  Sepsis (which is further discussed on the “Sepsis” page) can develop and be life-threatening in nature.

Cleanliness is an important aspect of proper health care, and of great importance in the prevention of pressure sore complications.  As seen in many examples of elder abuse and severe pressure sore infections, unsanitary and otherwise unhygienic conditions often contribute to and/or accompany severe pressure sore infections.

One example of unsanitary conditions and severely infected bedsores that developed on an elderly woman can be seen in the December 4, 2014 The Advocate article titled “Daughter, granddaughter indicted in 82-year-old Baton Rouge woman’s death.”  An excerpt:

Bessie Looney was severely malnourished and had severely infected bedsores on her hips and buttocks area, the affidavit states, and her wheelchair was lined with a disposable pad that was soiled with human waste.

Clark has said Bessie Looney’s bedsores, also known as pressure ulcers, “had the appearance of obvious infection.”

Additional details can be seen in The Advocate article mentioned above as well as the March 8, 2017 U.S. News & World Report article titled “Daughter Faces Trial in Death of Bedsore-Ridden Mother, 82.”

Settlement Of Wrongful Death Lawsuit Claiming Pressure Sore Development

In the November 8, 2016 post (“Wrongful Death Lawsuit Claims Development Of Gangrenous Pressure Sores“) a wrongful death lawsuit concerning allegedly deficient nursing home care provided to a resident was summarized.  Among the claims made in the lawsuit was that gangrenous pressure sores developed during the course of the decedent’s (Patrick Manning) stay in the nursing home.

The March 13, 2017 The Augusta Chronicle article titled “Augusta nursing home settles wrongful death lawsuit” provides an update with regard to the lawsuit and its resolution.  As seen in the article, the lawsuit was settled on the evening before the trial was set to start.

The article provides additional details with regard to the alleged deterioration in Manning’s health and alleged negligent care.  An excerpt:

Patrick Manning suffered a stroke in 2011. He remained communicative and ambulatory but needed rehab services. He was sent to Amara. Five months later, he could no longer walk to the bathroom.

In 16 months, Manning was dead. He had gangrenous pressure sores, dehydration, malnutrition and severe contracture, a condition in which a person’s limbs remained clutched close to the body.

Norma Manning blamed what she believed was poor care at Amara for her husband’s demise.

Additional details regarding this wrongful death lawsuit and the allegations of negligent nursing home care made within can be seen in the sources mentioned above.

Pressure Ulcers Cited In Lawsuits Against Illinois Nursing Homes

Individuals who have certain physical characteristics as well as certain health conditions are particularly susceptible to developing pressure ulcers.

Pressure ulcers (also typically referred to as bedsores, bed sores, pressure sores, and pressure injuries) can develop if neglect in the care of a nursing home resident occurs.  There are many steps that can be taken to prevent pressure sores, as well as prevent them from worsening should they develop.  One simple step is to frequently monitor nursing home residents for pressure sore development.  This is especially so for nursing home residents who have limited or no mobility.  Other medical conditions, such as dehydration, can cause and/or worsen the severity of the pressure injuries.

If prompt and proper medical attention is not provided to those that have developed pressure injuries, a worsening of the pressure sores can lead to a variety of adverse health consequences, and in some cases death.

Given the adverse health conditions that often result from the development of pressure sores, there are many Illinois lawsuits that have been filed regarding bedsores and the injuries – some fatal – that have arisen due to the development of such pressure injuries.  Negligence in care is often cited in these lawsuits.

One such lawsuit against a Belleville nursing home is discussed in the Madison Record article of January 2, 2017, titled “Woman alleges decedent developed pressure ulcers in nursing home.” An excerpt, referring to Judy McGovern, executor of the decedent’s estate:

McGovern alleges the defendant failed to provide necessary care and services and failed to develop and implement a comprehensive care plan.

Failure To Prevent Bedsores And Associated Illinois Lawsuits

Bedsores (also typically referred to as pressure ulcers, pressure sores, and pressure injuries) are an affliction to which certain types of individuals are particularly susceptible.

As often discussed on this site, bedsores are often a sign of neglect in the care of a nursing home resident.  There are many steps that can be taken to prevent pressure sores, as well as prevent them from worsening should they develop.  One simple step is to frequently monitor nursing home residents for pressure sore development.  This is especially so for nursing home residents who have limited or no mobility.  Other medical conditions, such as dehydration, can cause and/or worsen the severity of the bedsores.

If prompt and proper medical attention is not provided to those that have developed pressure injuries, the affliction can lead to a variety of adverse health consequences, and in some cases death.

Also of note is that the same neglect in care that led to the development of the pressure sores also can lead to other adverse medical conditions, i.e. the pressure sores may be one of many medical conditions that exist at the same time.

There are many Illinois lawsuits that have been filed regarding bedsores and the injuries – some fatal – that have arisen due to the development of such pressure injuries.  Negligence in care is often cited in these lawsuits.

One such lawsuit is seen in the January 20, 2017 Cook County Record article titled “Alden-Town Manor Rehabilitation and Health Care Center accused of not preventing pressure sores.”  As seen in the article, the plaintiff alleges that the defendants failed to provide adequate medical care to prevent the long-term care facility resident from developing multiple pressure sores.

Wrongful Death Lawsuit Claims Development Of Gangrenous Pressure Sores

As often discussed on this site, pressure sores (also commonly referred to pressure ulcers, bed sores and bedsores) are often a sign of neglect in the care of a nursing home resident.  There are many steps that can be taken to prevent pressure sores, as well as prevent their worsening should they develop.

If prompt and proper medical attention is not provided to those that have developed pressure sores, the affliction can lead to a variety of adverse health consequences, and in some cases death.

A recent article discusses a wrongful death lawsuit that includes the alleged development of pressure sores as well as other maladies.

An excerpt from the November 7, 2016 Augusta Chronicle article titled “March 20 date set in nursing home wrongful death suit“:

Nearly five years will have passed since Norma Manning’s husband died with gangrenous pressure sores, but this time the owner of the nursing home she has sued for wrongful death won’t get another postponement of trial.

Manning sued Salem Nursing and Rehab, also known as Amara Heath Care and Rehab, in 2013 in Richmond County Superior Court. Her 60-year-old husband, Patrick Manning, died in 2012, 16 months after he went to Salem for rehabilitation following a stroke. Mrs. Manning contends the treatment he received at Salem is responsible for the bed sores, dehydration, malnutrition and infection her husband suffered.

Additional details and possible updates can be seen in a variety of media sources, including the Augusta Chronicle article mentioned above.

Lawsuit Filed Regarding The Formation Of Pressure Ulcers

There are many important aspects of pressure sore development.  As frequently discussed on this site, pressure sores (also frequently referred to as pressure ulcers, bedsores, and bed sores) can lead to various adverse health consequences.  As such, a focus on pressure sore prevention is a key facet of proper long-term health care, especially for those people who are more potentially susceptible to developing pressure sores.  If proper pressure sore prevention measures are taken, the possibility of pressure sore development can be greatly reduced.

If pressure sores do develop, it is imperative that the pressure ulcers are quickly – and properly – treated.  There have been many Illinois lawsuits regarding the alleged failure of various long-term health-care facilities (including nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and hospitals) to identify and treat pressure sores in a timely manner, and in many of these incidents this alleged negligence has led to either serious harm – if not death – of the person who developed the pressure sores.  In those instances in which the person died from the worsening of pressure sores wrongful death lawsuits are often filed.

A recent lawsuit filed in the Cook County Circuit Court claims that a nursing home (Manor Care) in Palos Heights was negligent in the care and supervision of a disabled woman, and this woman developed pressure ulcers that were not promptly treated. This lawsuit is discussed in the October 19, 2016 Cook County Record article titled “Disabled woman’s guardian claims negligence by Palos Heights nursing home.”

Additional details can be seen in a variety of media sources, including the Cook County Record article mentioned above.

Wrongful Death Lawsuit Filed Regarding Bedsores And Fall

A recent wrongful death lawsuit filed in the Circuit Court of Cook County alleges negligence in nursing home care.  The lawsuit, filed against Southpoint Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, is discussed in the Cook County Record article of September 21, 2016, titled “Wrongful death allegation made against Southpoint Nursing and Rehabilitation.”

As seen in the article, the lawsuit claims that the nursing home failed to provide adequate supervision, and that the development of bedsores – as well as a nursing home fall – contributed to the death of the nursing home resident.

Any time a nursing home patient dies – or significantly suffers – from either bedsores and/or other nursing home injuries, the actions or negligence leading to such a death or significant injuries should be scrutinized and investigated.  The nursing home lawyers at the Elman Law Group can determine whether a lawsuit should be filed with regard to such incidents.  As with any personal injury lawsuit, each incident and injury should be evaluated to determine whether the filing of a lawsuit is warranted.

However, even if you are not sure as to whether nursing home abuse and neglect has been the cause of injuries and/or death, it is highly recommended that you contact the nursing home abuse and neglect lawyers at the Elman Law Group for legal counsel.  This consultation is provided free, is confidential, and is without further obligation.

Lawsuit Claims Nursing Home Fraud And Poor Care

One of the most common criticisms of nursing homes, as well as other long-term health care facilities such as assisted living facilities, is that such facilities do not – and can not – provide adequate levels of care due to understaffing.  This lack of staffing can be caused by many factors, including poor management, poor financial management, and fraud.

One example of this is seen in a nursing home operator that has been sued by the Federal Government, which claims that the nursing home operator filed false claims and also neglected to provide patients with with adequate and basic nursing services.  Because of this lack of care, which included lack of medications, residents allegedly suffered a number of ailments and associated pain, including pressure sores, lack of wound care, falls, dehydration and malnutrition.

The lawsuit is seen in the September 7, 2016 Department of Justice news release titled “The United States Files False Claims Act Against Six Vanguard Nursing Facilities…”  A notable excerpt from this press release include:

The United States’ complaint alleges that between Jan. 1, 2010, and Dec. 31, 2015, the six Vanguard facilities failed to provide the most basic and essential skilled nursing services to their residents.  The lack of adequate care at the Vanguard facilities included chronic staffing and critical medical supplies shortages, failure to provide standard infection control, failure to administer medication to residents as prescribed by their physicians, failure to provide wound care as ordered by physicians, failure to adequately manage residents’ pain and providing unnecessary and excessive psychotropic medications to residents and using unnecessary physical restraints on residents.  As a result, Vanguard residents suffered pressure ulcers, falls, dehydration and malnutrition, among other harms.  The United States’ complaint further alleges that Miller, who served as the Director of Operations for Vanguard from September 2011 through August 2014, knew that resident care at the Vanguard facilities was non-existent or grossly substandard but failed to correct these problems.

Additional details regarding this lawsuit can be seen in the DOJ press release mentioned above, as well as The Tennessean article of September 7 article titled “Feds:  Patients suffered in nursing home fraud case.”

Lawsuit Filed Regarding The Deterioration Of Pressure Sores

As frequently discussed on this site, pressure ulcers (also frequently referred to as pressure sores, bedsores, and bed sores) can lead to various adverse health consequences.  This is especially so if the pressure ulcers aren’t quickly – and properly – treated.  There have been many Illinois lawsuits regarding the alleged failure of various long-term health-care facilities (including nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and hospitals) to identify and treat pressure sores in a timely manner, and in many of these incidents this alleged negligence has led to the death of the person who developed the pressure sores.  In those instances in which the person died from the worsening of pressure sores – and the decline in overall health that often results during such an occurrence – wrongful death lawsuits are often filed.

A recent lawsuit filed in the Cook County Circuit Court claims that the development and worsening of pressure ulcers led to the subsequent death of the nursing home resident. This lawsuit is discussed in the July 26, 2016 Cook County Record article titled “Estate administrator claims nursing home was negligent.”

As seen in the article the lawsuit claims negligence in nursing home care.  The nursing home resident (Bernice Taylor) allegedly developed pressure ulcers on her sacrum and bilateral heels.  She later died, allegedly from the deterioration in health that accompanied the worsening pressure ulcers.

Additional details can be seen in a variety of media sources, including the Cook County Record article mentioned above.
