Brooklyn Park Maryland Nursing Home Safety Concerns Two Stars Rating

The state of Maryland and federal government nursing home regulatory agencies routinely update their care home database system. This list contains historical information of all citations and 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, three out of five stars for staffing issues and four out of five stars for quality measures.

  • Failure to Respond Appropriately to All Alleged Violations – citation #F610 date January 18, 2018
  • The state investigators determined “the facility failed to thoroughly investigate a resident’s allegation of verbal abuse, rough treatment, and a food tray out of reach.”

    The documentation indicates that the resident on October 18, 2017, “alleged when requesting perineal care that [the Geriatric Nursing Aide (GNA)] stated, ‘if you do not shut up, I will just leave you there in your [***]. Then, [the GNA] was rough during the care and also placed the lunch tray out of the resident’s reach. Because of the allegation, the facility removed [the GNA] from their assignment in the resident’s area.”

    The facility requested that the GNA “write a statement about the allegation.” The GNA said that the resident “complained that people kept coming into his/her room and turning off the call bell and saying, ‘I will let your Aide (GNA) know this happened over and over by the Aide did not come.”

    However, the GNA’s statement did not address the resident’s “complaints about rough treatment, verbal abuse, or the food tray being placed out of reach. After obtaining [the GNA’s] statement, the incident was closed as unsubstantiated.”

    As “part of the investigation into what occurred, the facility failed to obtain statements from [the resident] and others involved in the incident. The facility failed to address the resident’s complaint.”

  • Failure to Make Sure Services Provided by the Nursing Facility Meet Professional Standards of Quality – citation #F281 date August 15, 2017
  • The nursing home “failed to document relevant health status changes and subsequent actions in the medical record.” This failure was evident for one resident “reviewed in the complaint survey.”

    The findings included the resident “was admitted to the facility for rehabilitation services following surgery to repair a fractured right hip.” The resident “was confused and only oriented to name.”

    On July 19, 2017, the staff noticed that the resident “was maintaining his/her right leg in a flexed position.” The staff got the resident’s nurse to “observe and call the Physician for a possible order for an x-ray to determine if the repaired hip was dislocated.”

    The x-ray showed positive for dislocation of the repaired hip, and the resident “was returned to the hospital for treatment.” An interview revealed that the staff failed to document the change in condition and did not note “why Physician intervention was needed.”

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
