  • Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date February 13, 2018
  • The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to ensure its residents were free from neglect.” The survey team reviewed the facility investigation involving the resident’s daughter’s concerns “that the resident’s breakfast and lunch trays were left untouched on the bedside table.”

    The Director of Nursing interviewed the Geriatric Nursing Assistant, who stated “that she thought the Speech Therapist was responsible for feeding the resident breakfast. She also stated that she did not feed the resident lunch because another resident requested to be showered.” The Nursing Assistant stated that “sometimes if she is busy, she leaves the lunch there and heats it up around 2:30 PM or 3:00 PM.”

    The Director of Nursing asked the Geriatric Nursing Assistant “if she had been in the resident’s room throughout the shift.” The Assistant said “that she had been in the room. When asked how she could have allowed this to happen, the [Assistant] replied that she was busy.”

  • Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date June 1, 2017
  • The nursing home “failed to complete a thorough abuse investigation regarding an injury of unknown origin.” A “facility reported incident was conducted on May 26, 2017, at 2:05 PM. The report detailed an injury sustained by [a resident] on December 31, 2016.”

    The documentation revealed that the resident was “heard yelling out.” A Geriatric Nursing Assistant (GNA) went into the resident’s room and noted a skin tear to his/her left arm. The facility’s internal investigation was also reviewed at this time by the survey team and revealed that the resident had sustained a wrist fracture.”

    The nursing team transferred the resident “to a local emergency department within three hours of the injury being discovered.” The investigation report indicates that the “injury was unwitnessed. In the course of their investigation, the facility acquired statements from four staff members who provided care to the resident [before] the shift.”

    Even so, “only one interview was conducted with the staff member [the GNA] who was actually working on the shift when the resident was injured who found the resident with the injury. No interview was conducted with the nurse who provided treatment to the resident nor any other staff members who might have been with the resident over the course of the shift.”

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
