According to Medicare, this facility maintains an overall rating of one out of five stars, including one out of five stars concerning health inspections, two out of five stars for staffing issues and four out of five stars for quality measures.

  • Failure to Ensure That Every Resident Is Free from the Use of Physical Restraints Unless Needed for Medical Treatment – citation #F604 date February 7, 2018
  • The nursing home “did not keep one of two restrained residents free from restraint.” The incident involved a resident who “used a chest harness and seatbelt in his wheelchair. The facility had not documented that the harness and the seatbelt were restraints.”

    The facility “did not comprehensively assess the use of these restraints to determine what medical symptoms were being treated, i.e., why [the resident] needed these restraints.” The nursing home did not assess the resident “to determine if these were the least restrictive restraints.”

  • Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies That Prevent Mistreatment, Neglect or Abuse of Residents – citation #F226 date November 8, 2016
  • According to state investigators, “the facility did not always ensure that they implemented their written policies and procedures about Abuse and Neglect Prohibition by properly screening all employees. The facility did not ensure that a complete background check was needed every four years for [one staff member].”

    The investigator stated that “the facility did not ensure that a complete background check was done on seven of eight potential employees. The facility did not obtain an Integrated Background Information Systems (IBIS) Letter for the employees.”

  • 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 8, 2016
  • The facility “did not ensure each resident received care planned assistive devices related to falls.” In one incident, a resident “who was assessed as a high risk for falls was observed in bed” without “her EZ mat on the floor next to her bed and her wheelchair in her room.”

    Surveyors observed the resident on multiple occasions over four days “with her wheelchair in her room.” A review of the resident’s Plan of Care contains an intervention to remove the resident’s wheelchair “from her room to decrease the risk of falls with injuries.”

★★★★★
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
