Financial Penalties and Violations

The state of California and the federal government have the legal obligation for monitoring every nursing facility and impose monetary fines or deny payments through Medicare if the facility has violated established nursing home regulations and rules. In serious cases, the nursing facility will receive multiple penalties if investigators find the violations are severe and harmed or could have harmed a resident.

Medicare has cited this facility for abuse. Medicare says that “every nursing home resident deserves to retain their basic human dignity and be treated with respect at all times. Abuse and neglect are never acceptable.” Nursing homes “cited for abuse are required to take steps to protect their residents.”

Within the last three years, federal investigators imposed a monetary fine against Blythe Post Acute Nursing Center for $17,505 on October 26, 2017, citing substandard care. This nursing facility received three complaints and self-reported two serious issues over the last three years that resulted in violation citations.

Additional information concerning the facility can be reviewed on the comprehensive California Department of Social Services Adult Protective Services Website.

  • Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date May 17, 2019
  • The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to provide an environment free from sexual abuse, when [a severely, cognitively impaired resident], a victim of previous sexual abuse, was left out in the lobby with no staff supervision. This [failure enabled another resident], who had a history of being sexually inappropriate to [the first resident] on three separate occasions, to sexually molest [the resident] while out in the lobby.”

    The state investigators determined that “this failure to provide adequate supervision to [both residents] resulted in [the second resident] to be the victim of sexual abuse for the fourth time by [the sexually aggressive resident].” A Progress Note indicated that “it was alleged that another resident took her hand and was rubbing his [genitals] with her hand in the hallway when he was interrupted by another resident.”

    Other documentation shows that the third resident’s family member proceeded to inform a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and a Licensed Vocational Nurse “that while sitting in the dining room, she observed [the sexually aggressive resident] had his hand up [the first resident’s] shirt.” On a separate occasion, the sexually aggressive resident was found touching parts of the first resident’s “breast in the hallway.”

    A subsequent Progress Note indicated that the sexually injured resident “had been subjected to sexual inappropriateness by [the aggressive resident]” on three occasions. One Certified Nursing Assistant told the investigators that “it was hard for them to watch the residents all the time.” The CNA stated that all of the assistants “have a lot of residents, and they tend to get busy.”

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
