These agencies have the authority to impose monetary penalties or hold payment from Medicare if the nursing facility has violated rules and regulations. Typically, the more serious the violation, the higher the monetary fines, especially if neglect or abuse caused harm or could have caused harm to a resident.
Within the last three years, federal investigators imposed a monetary fine against Cooperstown Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing for $21,459 on August 22, 2017, citing substandard care. During this time, Medicare denied payment on June 03, 2016, due to a lack of quality care.

- Failure to Respond Appropriately to All Alleged Violations – citation #F610 date August 31, 2018
According to investigators, “the facility did not ensure that they investigated an alleged violation of neglect for [one resident] reviewed for abuse. Specifically, the facility did not ensure that an investigation was done after the resident reported concerns about the treatment [that] she was receiving from a staff member.”
The incident involved a cognitively intact resident who understands and was understood by others. During an interview with surveyors, the resident stated that “in the past two weeks, she had issues with [a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)]. She reported that [the CNA] put her on the commode one day and [the CNA] did not get her off the commode for thirty minutes, saying she had just gotten back from a break.”
The resident was told that the CNA “had been back for fifteen minutes. Another time, she put her call light on and [the CNA] did not answer it for one hour but came in and answered the roommate’s call bell.”
The resident indicated that on Sunday, August 19, 2018, “she had her call light on and waited from 7:00 PM to 7:50 PM to be toileted. She saw her [the CNA] in the hall and called out but got no response.”
The resident stated that a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) “went by and asked her if she needed anything.” The resident told him “what she needed, and that is when [the CNA] came to toilet her. The resident stated that the next day she reported her concerns to the Staffing Coordinator, who told her she would tell the Social Worker and that the Social Worker would come to talk to her, but no one ever came.”
The Staffing Coordinator verified that she had been told about the concerns about the CNA.
