The greater 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 two 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 Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date October 4, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to provide adequate supervision for [one resident] reviewed for accidents who was at high risk for elopement and wandered out of the facility.”
The investigative team reviewed the resident’s Admission Data Collection Form dated April 9, 2018. The document indicated that the resident “was evaluated for elopement risk, and at the time it was determined that [the resident] was not at risk for elopement.”
However, approximately ten weeks later on June 26, 2018, the resident “was observed outside of the facility in his wheelchair propelling slowly to the parking lot.” Someone asked the resident where he was going. The resident stated that “he was going to his home.” He was redirected and brought back in the facility.
The documentation shows that “this was the first time [the resident] had done this, and his son was called and notified.” The nursing staff received a Physician’s order to place a wander management bracelet on the resident’s left ankle and begin monitoring for placement and skin integrity on every shift.
The Nurse’s Note from June 30, 2018, at 7:30 PM indicated that the resident “was seen at the nursing station drinking coffee with [another resident].” Thirty minutes later, when a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) was performing shift rounds, “she was unable to locate [the resident] in his room. A search of the facility and perimeter was completed.”
The nursing staff notified the Administrator, Assistant Director of Nursing, and the resident’s son. By 9:45 PM, the staff notified the police department that arrived at the facility twenty minutes later.
By 12:20 AM, the police department notified the facility that they had found the resident “a mile away from the facility, and they were taking him to the hospital.” The Director of Nursing stated that the resident’s wander guard bracelet “was in place when he was found. All [the units] were checked by a vendor, and they were fully functioning, and all staff interviewed stated that they did not hear the alarm, and no one had turned off [the resident’s] alarm.”
