These penalties often include monetary fines and denying payment of Medicare services. Typically, the higher the penalty, the more egregious the problem.
The nursing home received six complaints over the last three years that resulted in a violation citation. Additional information concerning the facility can be reviewed on the State of North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (Adult Protective Services) Website.

- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date September 15, 2016
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to maintain the safety for [two residents] reviewed for accidents.” One resident “was not strapped in the facility van properly during transport and the staff who drove the facility van had not been trained in securing the straps after receiving a new van.”
A review of another Occurrence Report revealed that the resident “was found sitting on the floor in the bathroom. She stated she was trying to stand up.” Additional documentation revealed that the resident “got out of bed to go to the bathroom without assistance and did not call for help. She was reminded to call for help, and therapy referral was made.”
The resident “had a lengthy history of falls, some with serious injuries. She had poor balance, unsteady gait, and constant dizziness. She had been working with therapy and used a rolling walker. She had documented falls in her medical record at [a hospital] since 2011.”
The resident “continued to have falls per the Occurrence Reports and the interventions added to the Care Plan, and the Director of Nursing reviews indicated that “the resident was found sitting on her buttocks with legs bent at the knees, sitting between the bed and the wheelchair.” She was “assisted to the bathroom.”
A second occurrence with a different resident revealed that “he went to dialysis every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday” in the facility bus that “provided his transportation to and from dialysis.”
The resident stated that the Administrator “put them in the bus and did not secure the safety tiedown straps on his wheelchair.” When the van began moving, the wheelchair moved and the resident “grabbed the safety strap on the side of the van and held onto it during the ride back to the facility that kept him from turning over.”
