Good Samaritan Society - Bonell Community Nursing Center
Nursing home negligence takes on many forms, where the nursing staff can misbehave, or other patients assault the resident because of a lack of supervision. Many nursing homes throughout Colorado are understaffed, or the administration hires inadequately trained Nurses and Nurse’s Aides. Other nursing facilities did not follow acceptable practices for providing the utmost care.

- Failure to Report and Investigate any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date February 1, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure that all alleged violations were thoroughly investigated for [two residents]. Specifically, the facility failed to thoroughly investigate an allegation of verbal abuse between two residents [and] thoroughly investigate an allegation of neglect for [a third resident].”
The investigation involved a 93-year-old resident who “passed away on December 19, 2016.” A second resident was 88 years old and passed away on January 19, 2017.”
The Potential Abuse Incident dated December 14, 2016, and revised on December 30, 2016, revealed “the assailant was the 88-year-old resident. The incident description indicated that the nursing home “received reports from different staff members that the resident was yelling at her new roommate. Reports included the resident having problem with the roommate’s television volume, going to the bathroom too often, getting help from staff when the resident thinks she should be getting help, telling the roommate she does not care if she is sick.”
The Social Services Director spoke with the resident and “discussed the reports that she had been given from staff members.” The resident “denied any of the reports.” The resident “became very agitated and started yelling.”
The nursing home took immediate action and reiterated “the importance of being kind and welcoming to the resident’s new roommate. The resident stated she is not interested in this.” Additional discussions about her behaviors did not improve the situation. At one point, the resident became very angry.”
The nursing description detailed the “family is concerned about the resident’s roommate being rude to the resident and the family. One family member reported to roommate backed into him on November 22 and was not sure if it was intentional or not. The family is primarily concerned for the resident to have a peaceful environment.” The description details that the staff immediately assessed the resident for upset or fear. The resident denied both.
The staff provided emotional support and additional interventions “included having two staff in the room when the call light is pushed.” The nursing home “provided headphones for her televisions, encouraged to use the headphones when watching television, and rearrange the room to alleviate frustrations from the roommate watching television.”
