legal resources necessary to hold negligent facilities accountable.
Devonshire Oaks Nursing Center
For many years, nursing home residents throughout the United States have been subjected to neglect and abuse by caregivers, employees, or other residents. Many problems with the nursing home industry involve untrained professionals, short staffing, and a lack of supervision that leads to resident-to-resident assault.

- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date January 2, 2019

The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to supervise and monitor fall prevention interventions consistent with the resident’s Plan of Care to reduce the risk for falls.” This “failure had the potential to expose all residents with risk for falls to increase incidents of falls, resulting in residents’ injuries from falls and compromising their health and safety.”
In one case, a resident had difficulties with decision-making abilities and problems with “short and long-term memories.” The resident had “the inability to move both lower legs due to impairment on both legs [and was dependent] on staff assistance for bathing, transfers between surfaces, and moving from bed to chairs.”
A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) stated that “she transferred [the resident] from her bed to a shower chair by herself [saying], ‘I always transferred residents from their bed to the shower chairs by myself.’” The resident “sustained a bump on the back of her head from the fall, and the facility transferred [the resident] to an acute hospital for evaluation.” The facility Director of Nursing stated that the nursing home “failed to monitor staff to ensure staff followed [the resident’s] planned interventions to prevent [the resident’s] risk for falls.”
The facility “failed to implement its policy and procedure regarding Employee Infection and Vaccination Status on protecting all residents and staff against infection.” The nursing home failed to ensure a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) had “evidence of vaccine records or laboratory blood tests that showed immunity to [MMR – measles mumps and rubella].” The CNA “had no current influenza vaccine record or waiver/consent for refusal of the vaccine.”
A Licensed Vocational Nurse and a Registered Nurse (RN) “did not have any evidence of vaccine records or laboratory tests that show immunity to MMR.” This “deficient practice does not provide a safe environment and does not help prevent the development and transmission of communicable infections for residents and the staff.”
