Wilkes Barre Pennsylvania Nursing Home Safety Concerns One Star Rating

The federal government and Pennsylvania Department of Public Health website update comprehensive information containing historical details of all citations and violations.

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

  • Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect, and Mistreatment – citation date December 14, 2018
  • According to state investigators, “the facility failed to implement Abuse Prohibition Procedures for fully screening one employee [to ensure] eligibility for employment in long-term care or a nursing facility.”

    The survey team reviewed an employee’s personnel files that revealed that the Nursing Aide had indicated that “she had three previous employers. There was no evidence that the facility had contacted any of the previous employers to screen the employee and ensure the employee was eligible for employment in a long-term care nursing facility.”

  • Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation date December 14, 2018
  • The nursing home “failed to provide the necessary supervision and implement effective safety interventions to assure residents their environment remained as free from potential accident hazards as possible.” The nursing home failed to ensure the prevention of “ingestion of foreign substances, which compromised the resident’s health and required medical intervention at an acute care facility.”

    The nursing home failed to act to “deter intrusive wandering and prevent resident altercations.” In one incident, a Facility Incident Report revealed that staff had observed a resident “in the dining room eating a tea bag. Visual inspection of the resident’s oral cavity revealed no remnants of the tea bag.”

    In a separate incident, another Nurse’s Note documented that “the Physician and responsible party were notified of plastic removal.” The documentation revealed that “while doing incontinence care on the resident, a 15.0 cm x 15.0 cm piece of plastic was pulled from the resident’s rectum. The resident was noted to be yelling out [before] the care and calmed down after the plastic was removed.”

    Further review of the clinical record “revealed no documented evidence that the facility completed an investigation to determine how the resident, who required supervision, was able to obtain and ingest [the piece of plastic] without staff knowledge.”

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
