Mint Hill North Carolina Nursing Home Safety Concerns One Star Rating

The state of North Carolina and Medicare.com routinely update their comprehensive list of deficiencies online to reflect all violations

  • Failure to Provide Appropriate Treatment and Care According to Orders, Resident’s Preferences and Goals – citation #F684 date April 18, 2018
  • The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to provide the appropriately sized wheelchair for proper body alignment for [one resident] who required assistance with positioning.” The resident’s Occupational Therapy Discharge Summary revealed that the resident “received an assessment to determine a seating system to increase comfort, provide safety, and decrease educated behaviors.”

    The nursing home was to change the resident’s wheelchair “to a brand-specific tilt chair with a 4-quadrant gel cushion.” The investigation involved a resident who was assessed with “short-term and long-term memory problems.”

    The state investigators observed the resident on April 15, 2018, “seated in a wheelchair on a pommel cushion.” The resident’s “toe tips reached the floor. The wheelchair did not contain leg rests.” The resident “moved both legs, knee to chest.” Multiple observations were made of the resident on the same day where “both legs [were] dangling off the floor.”

    The surveyors noted that the resident remained seated on the pommel cushion the following day. The resident’s Nurse Aide revealed that the resident “used a wheelchair and pommel cushion every day, when out of bed.” The Aide explained that the resident “requires total assistance with locomotion and moved her legs frequently over the center of the pommel cushion.”

    The investigators interviewed a nurse who reported that “ she was not aware of another tilt chair with a 4-quadrant gel cushion” that should be used instead. The Rehabilitation Director revealed that the resident “received a discharge from therapy with the direction to use a brand-specific tilt chair with a 4-quadrant gel cushion.”

    When the Rehabilitation Director observed the resident, the Director announced that “the wheelchair was not the correct height for [the resident].” The Rehabilitation Director explained that “the pommel cushion should not overlap the edge of the wheelchair [and suggested that] the hospice staff might have switched out the chairs.”

    The Director of Nursing revealed that the resident “should be properly positioned and could not provide a reason why the recommended chair and cushion was not used.” The Hospice Nurse explained that “hospice relied on the facility staff to assess positioning needs, such as the wheelchair height in question, since [the resident] was usually in bed during hospice visits.”

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
