Brevard North Carolina Nursing Home Safety Concerns One Star Rating

Your family can visit Medicare.gov and the North Carolina Department of Public Health website to obtain a complete list of all violations, citations, and deficiencies identified by investigators and surveyors.

  • Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date November 18, 2016
  • The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure the handrail connectors were in good repair and without sharp edges for one of two hallways.” Specifically, there were areas of the exit door for the stairwell and Room 307, where “three plastic wall mounts to handrail connectors were broken with jagged edges.”

    Additionally, there were problems with the handrails between Rooms 305 and 306, and 304 and 302, Room 303 and the medication storage room. The Maintenance Director and Administrator “acknowledged they were unaware of any problems with the wall connectors.”

  • Failure to Develop a Complete Care Plan within Seven Days of the Comprehensive Assessment That Is Prepared, Reviewed, and Revised by Team of Health Professionals – citation #F657 date January 20, 2018
  • The “facility failed to invite [one resident] to two consecutive quarterly Care Plan meetings.” There “was no documentation available which indicated the resident, or his family member, had been invited to attend the Care Plan meetings following the MDS (Minimum Data Set) of April 23, 2017, or July 21, 2017.”

    The investigation involved a moderately cognitively impaired resident who “was able to make himself understood and had a clear comprehension of his ability to understand others.” A Social Worker at the facility stated that “she had either mailed a letter to the resident’s responsible party or hand-delivered a letter to alert and oriented residents, inviting them to schedule a Care Plan meeting.”

    However, the Social Worker “was unable to find any documentation [that the resident] or his family member was notified or invited to attend the Care Plan meetings for the MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessments on April 23, 2017, or July 21, 2017.”

    The MDS Coordinator confirmed that the resident “should have had a Care Plan meeting scheduled for [both appointments]. The MDS Coordinator said that “after each Care Plan meeting, a note was entered into the resident’s medical record indicating the date, who attended, and what was discussed.” However, the Coordinator was “unable to find any documentation [that the resident or his family member] was invited to attend the Care Plan meetings.”

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
