Florida and the federal government have a legal responsibility for monitoring every nursing home in the state. 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.
The nursing home received four complaints over the last three years that resulted in a violation citation. Additional information concerning the facility can be reviewed on the comprehensive Florida Adult Protective Services Website.

- Failure to Provide Care and Assistance to Perform Activities of Daily Living for Any Resident Who Is Unable – citation #F677 date June 14, 2018
- Failure to Provide and Implement an Infection Protection and Control Program – citation #F880 date June 14, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure that it provided nail care as a part of activities of daily living (ADL) assistance for [one dependent resident].” The “failure to keep nails clean and trimmed can result in an infection for a resident with cognitive impairment who scratches themselves and is unable to keep their nails clean and trimmed independently.”
The state investigators observed the resident at 2:35 PM on June 12, 2018. At that time, the resident “was lying in a low bed with floor mats on each side and was scratching both arms. She had black debris under and around the tops of her fingernails on both hands.”
The following morning at 8:56 AM, “she was lying on a low bed with floor mats on each side. She was observed with bruises and open areas on both arms. She had black debris under and around the top of her fingernails on both hands.”
The investigators interviewed a Registered Nurse (RN) who served as the Unit Manager on June 14, 2018. The Manager stated, “I cleaned up her nails yesterday while I was in her room with the Physician.” A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) stated that same day that “I will clean her fingernails, especially if she scratches her arms.”
Nine minutes later, the surveyors observed the resident “lying in bed dressed in casual clothes with black debris under and around her fingernails on both hands.” The survey team was unable to interview the resident because “she was unable to answer questions and was confused. She continually asked for her husband.”
The facility “failed to maintain assistanceto prevent the spread of infection and communicable diseases by failing to ensure that four glucometers were cleansed and disinfected [according to] standards and transmission-based precautions, and per the facility’s protocol. This failure placed the residents and staff at unnecessary risk of spreading/acquiring infections.”
The Director of Nursing stated that “the devices were to be cleaned before each use and after each use.” The Director also confirmed that all nurses had “germicidal wipes in their medication carts that they were expected to use.”
