Information & Ratings on Emerald Care Center Claremore, Claremore, Oklahoma
Many of the problems associated with mistreatment occurring in assisted-living facilities in nursing homes are the result of a lack of trained personnel, minimal supervision or understaffing. In these incidents, the needs of the residents are often ignored; they suffer serious injuries from a fall or develop life-threatening bedsores. Other residents wander away from the facility due to a lack of supervision; as mentioned in the citation below.

- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date July 5, 2017
The surveyors determined “the facility failed to provide supervision to prevent a fall [for one resident] with a history of falls.” The investigation involved a severely, cognitively impaired resident with “impaired vision [who requires] extensive assistance, which included one-person physical assist for transfers and locomotion within the facility.”
A review of the Incident Report dated May 7, 2017 documents that the resident “was found on the floor next to the recliner and that it appears [that] the resident had self-transferred from wheelchair to the recliner. The report further documented the resident had redness to the right side of the right hip, a bruise to the right shin, a small pink area to the back of the head, and the resident complained of pain in the left leg.”
Six days later, a subsequent Incident Report documented that the same resident “had fallen on May 11, 2017.” At that time, “the resident was found in her room lying face down on the floor; the resident’s wheelchair was observed to [be] at the resident’s feet, and the resident had reported to being unaware of how the fall occurred.”
The report further documented that “a physical assessment found the resident had a goose knot to the left side of the forehead” likely result of the fall and “two skin tears on the resident’s right knee.” An incident report dated May 16, 2017 documents that the same resident “had been discovered lying on the floor next to her bed, and the resident’s feet were resting in front of an unlocked wheelchair that was located between the bed and the recliner.” The resident was unaware of what happened.
On May 31, 2017, an Incident Report documented that the resident had “fallen in the hallway [the day earlier]; a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) had witnessed the resident lean forward in a wheelchair and fall onto the floor.” The resident was assessed and “found to have a bump and redness to the top of her head.”
The resident’s assessment documented that the resident “had experienced two falls without injuries and two falls with injuries since the resident had been admitted to the facility.”
