Hot Springs Village Arkansas Nursing Home Safety Concerns One Star Rating

The state of Arkansas and Medicare.com routinely update their comprehensive list of deficiencies online to reflect all violations

According to Medicare, this facility maintains an overall rating of two out of five stars, including two out of five stars concerning health inspections, four out of five stars for staffing issues and three out of five stars for quality measures.

  • Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date May 10, 2019
  • The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure adequate supervision was provided to prevent elopement, as evidenced by a failure to ensure staff closely monitored residents at risk for elopement [wandering away] and performed daily monitoring checks of the wander alert bracelets.”

    The nursing home also failed to “ensure the wander alert bracelets were properly applied, as per manufacturer’s instructions, to prevent the failure of the bracelets to transmit a signal to the receiver when the resident approached an exit door.” The investigation involved one resident “who exhibited exit-seeking behaviors [and was] at increased risk of elopement.”

    These “failed practices resulted in Immediate Jeopardy, which caused or could have caused serious harm, injury, or death to [the resident] who exhibited frequent ex-seeking behaviors, had an improperly applied a wander guard bracelet, and left the facility unnoticed by the staff.” The deficient practice “had the potential to cause more than minimal harm to two other residents who were at risk for elopement.”

    The investigative team reviewed a Nursing Note indicating that a discussion had happened with the resident’s Responsible Party/Power of Attorney that “we cannot restrain [the resident] to prevent him from leaving the building, and that right now he can be redirected from wanting to leave.”

    The nursing team decided to place the wander guard in the resident’s personal bag “that is attached to the back of his wheelchair” because he refused to wear it, would cut off, or think he is a prisoner.

    Documentation shows four incidents of the resident “being upset and trying to leave the building.” One incident occurred on May 6, 2019, when a physical therapy assistant “saw the resident in the parking lot, next to the sidewalk, sitting in his wheelchair, which was stuck in the parking lot drain.”

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
