Nursing Homes Investigated by Authorities

According to an article published January 23, 2010 here, authorities in both Illinois and Indiana are investigating numerous nursing homes for patient safety problems. According to the article, an Indiana nursing home named Northlake Nursing and Rehabilitation Center run by a for-profit company may avoid likely closure. The primary investor of the nursing home is nursing home operator Eric Rothner and

Many of Rothner’s nursing homes have suffered quality and patient safety problems and have been investigated by authorities in Indiana and Illinois.

Also according to the article, Northlake was “red-flagged” for a “Special Focus Facility watchlist by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. . . and it was noted that the “home is ranked by state and federal agencies as among the worst in the state.”

Review the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services listings of nursing homes here and check to see if your loved one is in one of these poor-performing facilities and keep a vigilant eye on the care and treatment. If you believe your loved one has been abused or neglected, please do not hesitate to contact us for a confidential, free initial consultation on whether you should file a claim.

"There are all kinds of reasons why you might need a lawyer at some point(s) in your life. Whatever the reason, what you want is someone that understands you, advises you properly (hey, our emotions can override our intellect), works hard on your behalf and is willing to go the distance. Phil Berenz is just this kind of lawyer. I had a situation where I needed the assistance of a lawyer and fortunately he was recommended to me. Phil can walk that delicate line of completely understanding --feeling your pain--to giving you the best advice based on his experience. Some lawyers may tell you what you want to hear to run up your fees. Not Phil.
He's a top-notch negotiator and has the patience to build relationships with the opposing side to gain the best benefit for the client. He is very skillful at understanding the psyche of the other parties.
I could go on and on, but basically what I want to say -- if you need a lawyer, call Phil. If he doesn't have the expertise that you require, he'll recommend you to someone that does and you can be sure they will be of a high calibre too."
