Levin & Perconti Files Lawsuit Against Alden Lakeland

Levin & Perconti has filed a lawsuit against Alden Lakeland Rehabilitation and Health Care Center on behalf of Michael Leonard, a former resident who was injured after allegedly falling on two separate occasions in 2016. Alden Lakeland transferred Mr. Leonard to Presence St. Mary of Nazareth Hospital where doctors discovered a subdural hematoma, nasal bone fractures, facial contusions and abrasions, loose front teeth, altered mental status, and dehydration.

The lawsuit alleges that Alden Lakeland failed in their promise to maintain and adhere to a care plan that would enable Mr. Leonard to improve his health at the facility, ultimately allowing a healthy and timely return home. Mr. Leonard and his attorney-in-fact, Patricia Cagney, are being represented by Levin & Perconti Partner Margaret Battersby-Black.

 

About Alden Lakeland and The Alden Network
Alden Lakeland, a short-term, for-profit rehabilitation facility located in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood, is intended to provide care and therapies that will enable residents to return home after an injury, illness, or surgery. The website boasts “Comprehensive Therapies that Result in Lasting Recoveries” and describes itself as a “five star facility.”

However, the facility has 3 overall stars (an ‘average’ rating) from Nursing Home Compare, the quality rating site run by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).  Alden Lakeland is also rated ‘average’ on staffing measures, receiving just 3 out of 5 stars.

Alden Lakeland Rehabilitation and Health Care Center is part of a vast group of nursing centers owned and operated by the Alden Network out of Chicago. There are currently 40 Alden facilities throughout Illinois with 2 new centers opening in New Lenox, IL soon.
