legal resources necessary to hold negligent facilities accountable.
Braden River 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; as mentioned in the citation below.

- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date April 19, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure adequate supervision was provided to prevent accidents for [one resident] reviewed for falls.” A Progress Note at the facility indicated that the resident “suffered three falls” over two months, including one on February 5, 2018, another a week later on February 12, 2018, and a third on March 13, 2018.
The state investigators interviewed the facility Unit Manager, who stated that the nursing home conducts a Fall Risk Assessment after every fall. The manager also states that the facility provides a Fall Alert for seventy-two hours where “[the resident] is checked for safety every thirty minutes around-the-clock for seventy-two hours.”
The state surveyors reviewed the resident’s medical record that revealed that the first fall occurred at 7:42 AM, and the nursing staff completed a Fall Risk Assessment. The interventions included beginning safety checks that would occur over the next seventy-two hours until 7:42 AM on February 8, 2018.
However, a review of the Fall Alert Safety Checks revealed that “there were no checks documented for [the day of the incident].” Additionally, the thirty-minute checks that occurred between February 5, 2018, to February 6, 2018, “started at 11:00 PM and continued only for twelve hours until 11:30 AM on February 6, 2018.”
It was noted that “there were no further checks documented until checks labeled February 7, 2018, – February 8, 2018, which started at 11:00 PM and then continued until the end of the seventy-two-hour period 8.5 hours later at 7:30 AM on February 8, 2018.” A review of the resident’s second fall documentation indicates the same problem of fall alert safety checks that were intermittent.
The resident’s third fall occurred at 8:00 AM. While the nursing staff did follow protocol on providing safety alert checks at fifteen-minute and then thirty-minute intervals, “there were no safety checks from 11:30 PM on March 13, 2018, until 3:30 PM on March 14, 2018.” The nursing home failed to follow the seventy-two--hour period protocol.
The facility Unit Manager confirmed that “[the resident] should have been monitored for safety and prevention of falls for seventy-two hours after each of the three falls.” The manager also confirmed that “the safety checks were not completed for any of the three falls.”
