  • Failure to Ensure That a Nursing Area Remained Free from Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Accidents – citation #F689 date February 9, 2018
  • According to investigators, “the facility failed to ensure [a resident’s] personal alarm (alarm device that gives an audible signal) was properly functioning, resulting in an avoidable fall. The facility also failed to use two staff assist with a transfer for [another resident] resulting in a laceration requiring sutures.”

    Additionally, “the facility failed to serve [a third resident] beverages in a Physician ordered therapeutic cup. Actual harm occurred when [the first resident] who is dependent on two staff members for transfers and was coded as being non-ambulatory, fell and her personal alarm failed to sound when she attempted to self-ambulate.”

    This deficient practice resulted in injuries “requiring hospitalization and surgical repair.” Additional harm occurred when the second resident “was transferred with one staff, resulting in a leg laceration requiring a visit to the hospital, stitches to close the wound and ongoing dressing changes in antibiotics.”

    Actual harm occurred to the third resident when they were served “hot coffee in a regular cup which caused the resident to spill the hot coffee on her right hip, resulting in a second-degree burn.

  • Failure to Develop and Implement a Program That Investigates, Controls and Keeps Infection from Spreading – citation #F441 date November 3, 2016
  • The nursing home “failed to ensure soiled linen was transported [to] prevent the spread of infection.” This deficient practice “had the potential to affect all one hundred fifty-three residents residing in the facility.”

    State surveyors observed in State-Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA) “carrying soiled bed linens from a resident room into the hallway of the facility. The soiled linen was not observed contained in any type of bag or safety barrier” which could increase the potential risk of spreading infection throughout the facility.

  • Failure to Provide Appropriate Treatment and Care According to Orders, Resident’s Preferences and Goals – citation #F684 date August 9, 2018
  • The facility “failed to provide post-fall care to [a resident] according to Physician’s orders.” A review of the resident’s records revealed that the resident had a fallen sustained a hematoma to the right breast. The resident received a Physician’s orders for “warm compresses to the right breast hematoma four times a day until resolved.”

    However, when the investigators reviewed the resident’s Treatment Administration Record, it was revealed that “the resident did not get warm compresses as ordered. The warm compresses were not documented as completed” and numerous times between 6:00 AM on August 1, 2018, through the afternoon of August 9, 2018. At that time, the resident was observed to have “a large grape -sized hematoma to the right breast [and] was unable to communicate other than shaking her head” when asked if the injury was still sore.

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
