Atlanta Georgia Nursing Home Abuse AttorneysOur Atlanta Georgia nursing home neglect attorneys have seen a significant rise in the number of civil and criminal cases involving nursing home neglect, abuse and mistreatment. While this number is substantially high, it likely represents only a small portion of the total number of cases. This is because many victims and family members never report unacceptable behavior occurring in nursing facilities throughout Georgia.

Medicare regularly releases publicly available information on every nursing facility in Atlanta, Georgia based on data gathered through inspections, surveys and investigations. According to the federal agency surveyors found serious violations and deficiencies at thirty (55%) of these fifty-five Atlanta nursing facilities that led to residents receiving substandard care. This statistic is significantly worse than nursing homes in most major cities.

Nearly 45,000 senior citizens represent almost 10 percent of the 443,000 residents living in within the city limits of Atlanta Georgia. There are significantly many more elders living in surrounding communities including Sandy Springs, Marietta, Conyers, Lawrenceville, Loganville, Shelbyville, Grayson, Johns Creek, Alpharetta and Roswell. In recent years, the demographic of the aging population has risen sharply as many more baby boomers have entered their retirement years.

The escalating numbers of retirees has placed a significant burden on the nursing homes in Atlanta and surrounding communities. Many of the nursing facilities in the area have become overcrowded and unable to find additional nurses and nurses’ aides to meet the health and hygiene needs of their residents. As a result, there has been a significant rise in the number of cases of abuse and neglect.

Primary Concerns –

Failure to Provide Minimal Standards of Care to Treat a Resident with Reduced Range Of Motion to Ensure an Increase Range Of Motion

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 08/07/2015, a notation was made during an annual licensure and certification survey by a state investigator concerning the facility’s failure to “ensure restorative nursing services were provided for [2 residents at the facility].” The deficient practice was noted after state surveyor observed a resident “in a high back Geri-chair in the day room covered with a green blanket. Observation of his upper left-hand reveal the contracture. The lower extremities were curled into a fetal position. No splints were noted for upper or lower extremity; no roll washcloths were noted in the resident’s palms.”

The state surveyor reviewed the resident’s medical records to see if the nursing staff was following the plan of care. Interventions for the resident included in part “will not have a decline in his current mobility area he requires two staff assist for transfers. Passive range of motion to lower extremities, provide pillow in between legs as needed.”

The state surveyor conducted in 08/06/2014 interview with the facility’s Rehabilitation Director who revealed “here one of the other therapists perform weekly rounds of all residents. The assessment also includes new admits and any residents they have been notified that are declining in mobility or activity. The therapy screening log book is separated by month and contains all the initial screening records for each resident assess for that month.” A review of the Therapy Screening Logs by the state surveyor revealed that the name of the resident and any reviews, assessments or screenings were not listed.

Our Atlanta/Jonesboro nursing home neglect attorneys recognize that any failure to provide minimum standards of care they could be detrimental to the improving well-being of the resident might be considered neglect or mistreatment. Additionally, the deficient practice fails to meet the established protocols and procedures adopted by Arrowhead Health and Rehabilitation Center, and directly violate both federal and state regulations.

Primary Concerns –

Failure to Maintain Complete and Accurate Clinical Records and Follow Physician’s Orders at a Level That Meets Professional Standards

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 08/24/2015, a state surveyor made a notation during an annual licensure and certification survey concerning the facility’s failure to “transcribe the written physician’s orders.” This failure was detrimental to one resident at the facility. The deficient practice was noted after a review by the state surveyor of the resident’s medical records that showed physician’s orders involving “Foley catheter care every shift and anchor catheter at all times. Per review of the medical record, the physician’s orders, Medication Administration Record (MAR) and Treatment Administration Record (TAR), the TAR did not reflect the physician’s orders.”

The surveyor’s additional review shows that the “admission checklist was completed however not signed. The twenty four (24) hour chart checks were documented as completed, however staff failed to note that the Foley treatment orders were not present on the TAR.” Additionally, a review of the facility’s Nurse’s Notes “since admission did not reflect Foley catheter care performed from 08/15/2015 through 08/21/2015. Review of the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) Activities of Daily Living (ADL) documentation in Point Click Care (PCC) does not specify fully care has been performed.”

During an interview conducted with the facility’s Director of Nursing it was revealed that the Director “found the transcribed treatments orders which were left on the shelf at the nurses’ station. No documentation of Foley care was noted on the treatment sheet and the monthly Foley changes were not transcribed.”

Our Atlanta/Marietta nursing home neglect attorneys recognize that failing to follow doctor’s orders that directly impacts the health and well-being of a resident might be considered gross negligence or mistreatment. The deficient practice fails to follow established procedures and protocols adopted by Autumn Breeze Health and Rehabilitation Center and violates both state and federal nursing home regulations.

Failure to Provide Necessary Care and Services to Ensure That Every Resident Maintains the Highest Level of Their Highest Well-Being

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 03/12/2015, a notation was made during an annual licensure and certification survey by a state investigator concerning the facility’s failure to “follow physician’s orders” that directly affected one resident at the facility. The deficient practice was noted after the review of medical records and a staff interview with a licensed practical nurse (LPN) that revealed the LPN “had failed to follow the physician’s orders [and the LPN acknowledged] that there was no evidence that a blood sugar finger stick was done on 03/02/2015 for a 4:30 PM and 9:00 PM sliding-scale coverage. She also acknowledged there was no evidence that the [resident’s medication] had been administered [that evening].”

The state surveyor conducted a 03/12/2015 interview with the facility’s Director of Nursing who revealed that the LPN “had not administered the sliding-scale [as ordered by the resident’s physician].”

Our Atlanta East Point nursing home neglect attorneys recognize that any failure to follow doctor’s orders might be considered negligence or mistreatment of the resident and does not follow the established procedures and protocols adopted by Bonterra Transitional Care and Rehabilitation Center.

Failure to Follow Physician’s Orders That Might Be Detrimental to the Resident’s Health and Well-Being

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 03/19/2015, a state surveyor made a notation during an annual licensure and certification survey concerning the facility’s failure to “ensure that the Registered Dietitian completed a consult for [a resident’s medication] as ordered by the physician.” This failure directly affected one resident at the facility. The deficient practice was noted after a surveyor completed a review of the clinical records of a resident at the facility detailing the results of a comprehensive metabolic panel and complete blood count. While the results indicated that the resident had a normal range result, further “review of the clinical record for [the resident] revealed it was no evidence that a dietitian consult was completed as ordered.”

The state surveyor conducted an interview with the facility’s Director of Nursing Services (DNS) who revealed “that there was no dietitian consult completed to address the physician’s order.” A subsequent interview with the facility’s Registered Dietitian (RD) “revealed that she does not recall she received any notation from the nurses regarding the consul for [the resident]. The RD freely acknowledged that she did not complete the consult as ordered.”

Our Atlanta Decatur nursing home neglect attorneys recognize that any failure to follow physician’s orders can have a direct impact on the health and well-being of the resident. This failure also violates state and federal nursing home regulations and does not follow the established procedures and protocols adopted by Golden Living Center – Glenwood, and might be considered negligence.

Primary Concerns –

Failure to Ensure That Residents Entering the Nursing Home without a Catheter Are Not Given a Catheter and Receive Proper Services to Prevent UTIs and Restore Normal Bladder Function

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 09/03/2015, a notation was made by a state surveyor during an annual licensure and certification survey involving the facility’s failure to “provide care and services to improve or prevent decline of normal bladder function.” This very directly affected one resident.” The deficient practice was noted upon completion with staff interviews, family interviews, record reviews and a review of facility policies including the policy titled: Bowel and Bladder Management Policy. The deficient practice involved that the resident at the facility will begin bladder retraining trials by the Restorative Nurse at the facility who initiated the trials after conducting an assessment using only the facility’s policies.

During an interview conducted with the Restorative Nurse on 09/04/2015, it was revealed “that the potential for bladder training should not alone be the deciding factor for whether or not a resident should receive bladder retraining trials. Each resident should be treated individually and [the policy] is used as a tool only. [The Restorative Nurse] confirmed that she is the one that completed the evaluation on 02/16/2015 and that she incorrectly assessed the resident’s medical history. The score should have been a zero. She confirmed that the score would have been lower than eight and based on the score of eight she would have proceeded with a bladder retraining trial.”

Failing to individualize the assessment of bladder retraining and failing to follow policies established or adopted by Lake City Nursing and Rehabilitation Center might be considered negligence or mistreatment of the resident.

Failure to Provide Proper Treatment and Equipment to Prevent the Development of New Bedsores or Heal Existing Sores

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 03/14/2015, a state surveyor made a notation during an annual licensure and certification survey concerning the facility’s failure to “ensure that a resident with a pressure ulcer was provided treatment that was recommended by the wound care specialist to prevent further deterioration of the pressure ulcer.” The state surveyor also noted an additional failure of the facility “to prevent the development of a pressure ulcer for [another resident].” These failures directly affected two residents at the facility.

The state surveyor conducted a 03/14/2015 interview with the facility’s Director of Nursing, revealing that one resident at the facility had pressure ulcers that healed in the past. She said the pressure ulcer that developed on [the resident] may have been a deep tissue injury.” The Director of Nursing “added that there was no protocol for wound care or standing orders [and that the resident] was supposed to be on a veritable pressure mattress.” However, an observation of the resident’s mattress with the facility’s Director of Nursing “determined that [the resident] was lying on a Panacea 35 wide Clinical Mattress with Ray’s perimeters. The mattress was made of urethane foam.” The Director of Nursing stated “that she was certain that the Panacea mattress was a veritable pressure mattress. Observed other mattresses on the resident beds on the same hallway according to the [Director of Nursing] there were no residents in the facility with alternating pressure mattresses.”

Our Tucker nursing home neglect attorneys recognize it any failure to follow standard procedures and protocols when providing treatment for pressure ulcers might be considered negligence or mistreatment. In addition, the deficient practice of not following proper protocols directly violates state and federal nursing home regulations.

Primary Concerns –

Failure to Provide Proper Maintenance and Housekeeping in the Facility’s Kitchen to Manage an Ongoing Cockroach Problem

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 10/08/2015, a notation was made by a state surveyor during an annual licensure and certification survey involving the facility’s failure to “provide housekeeping and maintenance services to ensure a sanitary environment.” This deficient practice directly affected every resident receiving meals made at the facility.

The deficient practice noted was made after a 10/06/2015 observation by state surveyor of the facility’s kitchen dry storage area that noted the following:

“Missing tiles under the wire shelf unit at the back of the right wall leaving an area of cement subflooring exposed measuring two feet deep by four feet wide. The exposed area of cement was littered with cockroach feces, dust, dirt, food debris and the bodies of 20 cockroaches in various stages of decomposition.”

The state surveyor conducted a 10/06/2015 interview with the facility’s Dietary Manager who indicated that “the dead cockroaches should be swept up daily by maintenance.” A follow-up 10/06/2015 interview with a Pest Control Ecolab employee revealed “the dead cockroaches have been on the floor under the wire shelving for months. They should be cleaned up daily in order to determine if there is an active infestation.”

Our Atlanta nursing home neglect lawyers understand that any failure to maintain a clean environment in the kitchen area may be detrimental to the health and well-being of its residents and might be seen as negligence or mistreatment. The ongoing deficient practice of not providing proper maintenance and housekeeping does not follow the established policies and protocols adopted by Pruitt Health – West Atlanta and violates state and federal nursing home regulations.

Primary Concerns –

Failure to Provide Standards of Care to Maintain a Resident’s Respect and Dignity of Their Individuality

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 02/12/2015, a state surveyor made a notation during an annual licensure and certification survey concerning the facility’s failure to “ensure that staff responded to a call light [in a timely manner].” The failure directly involved one resident. The deficient practice was noted after an observation and a review of the resident’s records including the Admission Minimum Data Set (MDS) assessment that “revealed the resident was assessed as total dependent for transfer and toilet use.”

The state surveyor conducted an interview with the resident on 02/10/2015 where the resident “revealed that when she was admitted to the facility in October she was unable to get out of bed and toilet herself. She indicated that she soiled herself on several occasions and had a lie in her own feces for 3 to 5 hours. On one occasion she used her call light to call for staff assistance and the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) came into her room, turned the call light off, and never returned. She repeatedly called for someone to assist her but no one came. She revealed that the Charge Nurse was passing by her room and she called out to her for help, which he provided.”

Our Atlanta Georgia nursing home neglect attorneys recognize that failing to provide minimum standards of care and assistance to address the toilet needs of a resident might be considered negligence or mistreatment. In addition, the deficient practice of making a resident lie in their own feces for 3 to 4 hours is in direct violation of state and federal nursing home regulations.

Failure to Provide Necessary Assistance to Ensure the Eating/Drinking, Grooming and Personal/Oral Hygiene Needs of Every Resident Is Being Met

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 05/14/2015, a notation was made during an annual licensure and certification survey by a state investigator concerning the facility’s failure to “ensure that Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) were provided [to a resident at the facility]. The deficient practice was noted after an observation and interview with a resident during an initial tour occurring on 05/11/2015.

The observation and interview revealed that the resident “has not had a shower since being admitted to the facility; however, he does receive bed baths, usually once a week and his teeth are brushed possibly one time per week.” The resident was observed having “long, untrimmed dirty fingernails, flakes of skin and hair on the resident’s pillow. His face was oily with loose flakes of skin over his forehead and cheeks, his eyes were matted, and he exhibited a full untrimmed beard. His teeth were coated with a thick white film with flecks of brown food like substance. He was dressed in a blue T-shirt, soiled with an unknown brown substance. Foul musty odor emanated from the resident.”

The state surveyor reviewed the facility’s quarterly minimum data set That (MDS) assessment that revealed “he was assessed as being dependent for all Activities of Daily Living (ADL) and requiring assistance of two staff with dressing, personal hygiene and bathing due to his ataxia.”

Our Atlanta Georgia elder abuse attorneys recognize that any failure to provide minimum standards of care during activities of daily living might be considered negligence or mistreatment of the resident. In addition, the ongoing deficient practice is a gross violation of the established procedures and protocols enforced by federal and state nursing home agencies.

Primary Concerns –

Failure to Properly Store Medications That Require Refrigeration within a Specific Temperature Range to Ensure Its Effectiveness

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 07/09/2015, a notation was made by a state surveyor during an annual licensure and certification survey involving the facility’s failure to “maintain the medication refrigerator temperature below 46 degrees Fahrenheit.” This deficient practice directly affects every resident at the facility prescribed medication that requires refrigeration.

The deficient practice was noted after the state surveyor observed the medication room on 07/08/2015 which revealed “a refrigerator thermometer temperature of 60 degrees which was confirmed by the Licensed Practical Nurse Unit One Supervisor. She further revealed that the temperature was too high and that it was recorded at 46 degrees by the night nurse at 12:00 AM. She continued to reveal that the thermometer may be out of order. The refrigerator contained multiple vials of medication that includes Lantus – eight vials, Novolog Insulin – nine vials, one vial of Humulin Insulin, one open vial of Levemir Insulin and for vials of Tuberculin.”

The storage recommendations by the manufacturer states that the medications should be maintained at a temperature between 36 degrees Fahrenheit and 46 degrees Fahrenheit and that “anything deviating from those temperatures either higher or lower may cause it to break down a decrease the efficiency of the medication.

The state observer conducted a 07/09/2015 interview with the facility’s Director of Nursing who revealed “that there were five residents who receive daily insulin and 34 residents on a sliding scale.” Additionally, the surveyor reviewed the facility policies on refrigeration which revealed “medications requiring refrigeration or temperatures between 36-46 degrees Fahrenheit were to be kept in a refrigerator with the thermostat to allow temperature monitoring and required to be in a cool place.”

Our Lawrenceville nursing home neglect attorneys recognize that any failure to follow protocols when refrigerating insulin and other prescription medications places the lives, health and well-being of residents in jeopardy. In addition, the deficient practice might be considered negligence or mistreatment because it does not follow the established procedures and protocols adopted by Life Care Center of Gwinnett and violates federal and state nursing home regulations.

Primary Concerns –

Failure to Follow Protocols When Investigating and Reporting Any Active Abuse against a Resident at the Facility

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 09/04/2015, a state surveyor made a notation during an annual licensure and certification survey concerning the facility’s failure to follow established protocols on investigating reporting any active abuse to a resident. The deficient practice was noted after a review of a residence records and interview with family members involving a resident requiring “limited assistance was supervision of her Activities of Daily Living (ADL).”

The records reveal that the resident’s family member “had informed the [Director of Nursing] that on the evening of 08/27/2015 her mother was receiving her daily insulin injection by [a nurse]. She requested that the nurse use another site and was told by the nurse to remove her arm. She moved her arm and allowed the nurse to give the injection. She reported this to the [Director of Nursing] who said she would reeducate the nurse. That same nurse came in on 8/29/2015 again [the resident] placed her arm over her upper stomach [when] the nurse informed her that if she did not move her arm she would stick the needle somewhere else. Her daughter revealed that she called the [Director of Nursing] on 08/30/2015 and told her that [her loved one] was threatened by the Licensed Practical nurse and she [the family member] was concerned about [the loved one’s] safety. The family member continued to reveal that she was concerned that the nurse was still working with her mother and had not been removed on 08/20/2015 when the [Director of Nursing] first informed that there was a concern with [the LPN].”

The state surveyor conducted a 09/01/2015 interview with the Director of Nursing who revealed “she was notified about the abuse allegation on Sunday, 08/30/2015 and felt the nurse only needed reeducation. She continued to reveal that she was not aware of the protocols for reporting abuse in Georgia and did not send any report to the state office. She did not seek the advice of the Regional Nurse or the Administrator who was the Abuse Coordinator.” A follow up interview with the facility’s administrator on 10/03/2015 revealed “that she had not yet sent anything to the state agency regarding the alleged abuse [of the resident].”

Our Atlanta elder abuse lawyers recognize that any failure to properly investigate and report any active abuse directly violates the established protocols enforced by federal and state nursing home regulations. The deficient practices involving the licensed practical nurse, Director of Nursing and facility administration might be considered abuse and negligence that mistreats the resident.

Protect Your Loved One from Abuse and Neglect

Many families place their loved one in a nursing facility because the home provides much-needed assistance with medical care and Activities of Daily Living including grooming, cleaning and eating. The assistance and skilled nursing care ensures that the resident’s existing health conditions are well-managed.

However, not every nursing facility provides the highest level of care. Abuse and negligence has become an epidemic problem nationwide, especially in overcrowded communities with significant numbers of elderly retirees, including those throughout the Atlanta area. Many family members are unaware that their loved one is being mistreated, neglected or abused even though some signs are more obvious than others. The most common and obvious signs of abuse involve:

  • Broken bones, bruising, cuts, lacerations or open wounds that could indicate neglect, abuse or mistreatment is occurring
  • Unexplainable negative changes in behavior like when the resident recoils from caregivers or other residents
  • Indicators of dehydration or malnutrition such as dizziness or unexplainable loss of weight
  • Injuries obtained by falling
  • Signs of overmedication or over-sedation that is often used to restrain the resident
  • Noticeable odor of urine, feces or from a lack of bathing
  • Noticeable fear or signs of apprehension when caregivers are around
  • Detectable signs of depression or displays of anger
  • Open sores

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
