Financial Penalties and Violations
Both New York and the federal government can impose a monetary fine or deny payments through Medicare when a nursing facility has been found to violate established regulations and rules. The higher the monetary fine, the more serious the violation is that likely harmed or could have harmed one or more residents at the nursing home.
The nursing home received one complaint over the last thirty-six months that resulted in a violation citation. Additional documentation about fines and penalties can be found on the New York State Nursing Home Report Website.

- Failure to Provide and Implement an Infection Protection and Control Program – citation #F880 date February 8, 2018
- Failure to Ensure That Residents Are Free from Significant Medication Errors – citation #F760 date September 14, 2018
According to investigators, “the facility did not properly establish and maintain an infection prevention and control program designed to provide a safe, sanitary and comfortable environment.” The facility failed to “help prevent the development and transmission of communicable diseases and infections.”
Specifically, “the facility did not complete a Legionnaire low risk assessment for their potable water system.” The surveyors reviewed the facility’s Legionnaire Program Documents on February 6, 2018. At that time, “there was no documented risk assessment provided.”
The nursing home “did not ensure that each resident was free from significant medication errors. Specifically, the facility identified a medication transcription error for [a resident’s] medication.” Also, there was a failure to clarify “the medication order” on July 13, 2018. The facility “continued to administer the wrong dose until August 9, 2018.”
The incident involved a severely, cognitively impaired resident. A review of the Medication Irregularities Report dated on July 13, 2018, revealed that the resident received too much medication of one drug and not enough of another drug and that the facility had reeducated the staff to eliminate the serious medication error in the future.
Documentation shows that the facility received the medication and refill bottles that should have lasted approximately eleven days. However, the pharmacist said that it appeared that the medication was not being given as ordered because the refill should be close to empty.” However, a review of the medication indicated that the bottle was almost full instead. The Registered Nurse (RN) Manager indicated that “the medication could not have been given as ordered [because the bottle was too full to indicate the staff administered the drug according to orders], and she would start an investigation immediately.
During an interview with the Director of Nursing, it was revealed that “simple math” should have been used and “the nurses should have caught the dispensing error. They said staff will need to be re-educated.”
