legal resources necessary to hold negligent facilities accountable.
Ayden Court Nursing and Rehabilitation Center
Many of the problems associated with mistreatment occurring in assisted-living facilities in nursing homes are the result of a lack of trained personnel, minimal supervision, or understaffing. In these incidents, the needs of the residents are often ignored; they suffer serious injuries from a fall or develop life-threatening bedsores. Other residents wander away from the facility due to a lack of supervision.

- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date February 7, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to place bilateral bed rails on the bed, which are utilized by the resident for bed mobility.” During the provision of care, “the resident fell from the bed [and] sustained a fractured right hip, as a result of his fall.”
Documentation in the medical record indicates that the resident “requested to have bilateral side rails to aid in bed mobility and for activities of daily living assistance with the staff. The note stated the bed rail evaluation was completed and bed rails were installed. The resident was educated on the risks and benefits of the rails and how to use them.”
However, A Nursing Progress Note, dated October 30, 2018, revealed that at approximately 11:15 AM, the resident “fell out of bed during morning care.” There were no apparent injuries and the resident denied pain.
The resident stated that before the incident, his bed broke and the facility replaced the bed but failed to put the bed rails back on it. The resident stated that “he fell out of his bed while he received a bath because of no rails for him to hold onto.”
Two days later, the resident told the surveyors that “he had a brand-new bed with no side rails. He stated he remembered [the administration staff] coming into his room and looking at the bed and talking about getting bed rails for his bed. He said he knew he needed the bed rails but on the day he fell, he wanted to get out of bed and did not want to wait for the rails, so he told the Nurse Aide to give him his bath now and not to wait for the rails to be installed.”
