  • Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date November 16, 2018
  • The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to report injuries of an unknown origin to the appropriate State Agency for [two residents].” In one case, a resident’s Nursing Progress Note indicated that the patient “was found limping and walking slowly, with difficulty moving legs and unsure of injury.”

    The Director of Nursing indicated that “she was not aware of the resident’s injury.” The Director explained that “the facility’s process was to report the injury of unknown origin to the State Agency, start an investigation within 24-hours and complete the investigation within five days.”

    The Resident Care Coordinator indicated that “the resident was observed limping,” three days earlier. The Coordinator reported that “she was notified of the resident’s injury and an x-ray was ordered [STAT] (immediately)” the following day.

    The resident stated that the previous shift on the day before, the resident was injured when being put to bed. A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) indicated that “if a resident made claims that the staff had caused a skin tear, it would be reported to the Charge Nurse.”

    The Director of Nursing “acknowledged not being aware of the incident on the day it happened when the resident indicated a staff member had caused the skin tear. The Director confirmed that there was no incident report completed for the incident.”

  • Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date December 16, 2016
  • The “facility failed to report an allegation of misappropriation to the appropriate State Agency for [one resident].”

    The investigators reviewed the resident’s medical records. The documentation revealed a Nursing Progress Note that indicated, “the resident reported cash was missing from [his/her] wallet.”

    The Abuse Prevention Coordinator stated during an interview that “the missing money was investigated and was not substantiated, but the facility did replace the money. The Coordinator acknowledged the allegation of misappropriation was not reported to the State Agency,” as required by law.

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
