The federal government and the state of Connecticut routinely monitor every nursing facility to identify serious violations of established rules and regulations and levy monetary fines or deny payments through Medicare when problems are found. Typically, these violations result in penalties when investigators found severe problems that harmed or could have harmed a resident.
Within the last three years, federal investigators imposed a monetary fine against Arden House Nursing Home for $19,039 on September 21, 2017, citing substandard care. This nursing facility received seven complaints and self-reported five serious issues over the last three years that resulted in violation citations.

- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse, Physical Punishment, and Being Separated from Others – citation #F223 date March 17, 2017
- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date March 17, 2017
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to prevent the misappropriation of the resident’s personal property, which resulted in the fraudulent use of the resident’s credit card.” The investigation involved a resident with “some memory and cognitive defects [who] required extensive two-person assistance with activities of daily living and taking care of his/her own personal belongings.”
According to the Reportable Event Form, the local police department called the Director of Nursing to report that a Nurse Aide “was arrested after an investigation in which a resident’s credit card was used to pay for [the Nurse Aide’s] rent and multiple purchases.” The police indicated that “the resident was always in possession of the credit card.”
The nursing home “failed to investigate an injury of unknown origin.” The investigation involved a review of a severely, cognitively impaired resident’s chest x-ray “taken at the facility on March 11, 2016, [that] identified no acute findings.” This resident “requires total care with activities of daily living and had no falls or fractures in the last six months.”
The resident was admitted to the hospital to address a fracture involving a “mildly displaced ninth rib fracture identified on the recent chest x-ray.” The Director of Nursing Services “identified that although he/she was aware of the rib fracture by [the hospital] that had contacted and faxed information [concerning the resident’s injury], he/she did not conduct a facility investigation when made aware of the rib fracture.”
The Director identified that the resident had not recently fallen and “did not take the investigation any further, conduct interviews with facility staff, or report the fracture to the State Agency,” as required by state and federal rules and regulations.
