Clearbrook Center Assumes Patient is Dead and Fails to Initiate CPR

Rolling Meadows

Clearbrook Center
3201 West Campbell Street, Rolling Meadows
Fined- January 11, 2008
Clearbrook Center was fined $10,000 for failure to provide a resident with appropriate nursing care.
Based on interview and record review, surveyors found that facility staff did not initiate CPR on a resident who was found unresponsive but warm to the touch. Two nurses assessed the resident shortly after he was found. Neither one performed CPR because both assumed he was already dead. He was pronounced dead forty-five minutes later.
