legal resources necessary to hold negligent facilities accountable.
Chandler Convalescent Hospital
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 severe 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 a Safe, Appropriate Pain Management Plan of Care for a Resident Who Requires Those Services – citation #F697 date May 16, 2018
- Failure to Provide Appropriate Pressure Ulcer Care Prevent New Ulcers from Developing – citation #F686 date April 11, 2018
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to assess a resident’s pain before and after administration of [pain medication] for [one resident].” This deficient practice “had the potential to result in the unnecessary use of [medication that could affect the resident’s] health and well-being.”
The resident’s Care Plan indicated that there was a concern, and problem for “a potential pain due to a left fibular fracture. The Care Plan goal indicated [the resident’s] pain would be relieved within one hour of intervention. The nursing interventions included to assess pain symptoms, identify frequency, location, quality, onset, and manner of expressing pain, provide non-pharmacological interventions, administer medications as ordered and notify the Physician if ineffective, and handle gently during care.”
A review of the resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment and Pain Assessment indicated that the resident “had pain occasionally in the last five days with a pain level of seven of ten (pain rating scale, zero being no pain and ten is the worst pain), and received a scheduled pain medication regimen and non-medication intervention for pain.” However, a review of the resident’s pain administration between January 1, 2018, and January 29, 2018, found “no documented evidence [that the resident’s] pain was assessed before and after the administration of [pain medication].”
The facility “failed to provide wound care services for [one resident] by failing to ensure [the resident] received appropriate pressure injuries treatment.” The nursing home also failed to ensure that the resident “received wound evaluations from a Wound Specialist/Consultant.” These “deficient practices resulted in [the resident’s] pressure injuries becoming worse.”
As a result, the resident “developed twelve new pressure injuries and was admitted to the General Acute Care Hospital” for evaluation and treatment. An interview with a Licensed Vocational Nurse revealed that the “resident’s pressure injuries became worse and [the resident] developed other pressure injuries while the resident was at the facility.”
The nurse stated that “the Wound Specialist did not evaluate [the resident’s] pressure injuries due to the resident’s insurance issues.” The nurse noted that the resident “was supposed to have a consultation with a Wound Care Specialist so that the Wound Specialist could determine what type of treatment the resident needed.”
