Dallas Texas Nursing Home Safety Concerns Two Stars Rating

  • Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse, Physical Punishment, and Being Separated from Others – citation #F223 date April 13, 2017
  • The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to implement policies and procedures that prohibit neglect for [one resident] reviewed for neglect.” A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) neglected to stay with the resident “when she knew the resident wanted her to stay during toileting and needed help with toileting and ambulation.”

    After the CNA left the resident alone in the bathroom, the resident “got up from the toilet, ambulated by herself and fell, resulting in fractures in her back. These failures could affect the eighteen resident who require staff supervision on the secured Memory Care Unit (MCU) by placing them at risk to experience serious adverse consequences and a decreased quality of life.”

    The investigation involved a resident with impaired vision, “long and short-term memory problems, severely impaired decision-making skills, and [no behavioral issues]. She did not have any rejection of care issues [but] required extensive physical assist of one staff for bed mobility, transfers, toilet use, dressing, and personal hygiene.”

    The documentation shows that the resident “was not steady, but able to stabilize with staff assistance when moving from a seated to a standing position, walking with assistive devices, turning around, moving off the toilet, and surface-to-surface transfers.”

    The resident’s documentation indicates that the resident had “a fall since a prior MDS assessment that resulted in no injury.” The resident’s Care Plan revealed that the resident had fallen on April 7, 2016, June 24, 2016, and December 2016.” During the last fall, there “were no injuries [but the fall was] unwitnessed.” A fall that occurred later on April 7, 2017, “was also unwitnessed and resulted in [a fracture in the back].”

    The incident report from that day reflected that the resident “was found in the floor at 1:30 PM while attempting to transfer back to bed without CNA assistance. Her mobility was assessed as ambulatory without assistance. Her pre-disposition psychological factors were confusion, gait and balance, impaired memory, recent illness, and a recent change in medications.”

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
