In some cases, the nursing home receives multiple penalties if surveyors find severe violations that harmed or could have harmed a resident.
Within the last three years, federal investigators imposed a monetary fine against Countryside Manor Health and Living Community for $11,881 on November 02, 2016, citing substandard care.

According to state surveyors, “the facility failed to ensure supervision during breathing treatments.” The state investigators interviewed a resident who indicated that “the staff put on her mask and started the breathing treatment, and that she would take it off and shut the machine off. No staff stayed with her during the treatment.”
The following day, the resident “was observed in her room, with a mask and the breathing machine running with no staff present.” A couple of minutes later, the surveyors observed the resident “removing the mask and shutting off the breathing machine that was sitting at the foot of her bed.”
The surveyors interviewed the Director of Nursing who indicated “that some residents were able to self-administer their breathing treatments after completing an assessment.” The Director provided a form listing twelve residents “who were able to administer their own breathing treatments.” However, this resident’s “name was not on the list.”
The nursing home “failed to notify a resident’s representative when a resident developed an elevated blood pressure and fever.” The nursing Home also “failed to notify the resident’s representative when a medication was increased.”
Even though the resident had a change in their condition, the Nurse Progress Notes lacked any documentation of family notification. The notes document that the LPN called the on-call Physician and received an order to give new medication because the resident’s blood pressure was elevated. However, even though the LPN noted that they had notified the family, she “did not document the conversation.”
The facility “failed to change a protective dressing as prescribed by a Physician.” The surveyor noted that “the dressing over the PICC line in the resident’s left upper arm” on November 14, 2018 was dated November 3, 2018, indicating the last day it was made.
