legal resources necessary to hold negligent facilities accountable.
Haven of Sierra Vista Nursing Home
Many of the problems associated with mistreatment occurring in assisted-living facilities in nursing homes are the result of a lack of trained personnel, minimal supervision, or understaffing. In these incidents, the needs of the residents are often ignored; they suffer serious injuries from a fall or develop life-threatening bedsores. Other residents wander away from the facility due to a lack of supervision, as mentioned in the citation below.

- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date March 14, 2019
- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date March 14, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home failed to ensure one resident “was free from abuse by another resident.” The deficient practice “could potentially allow for further abuse.”
The investigation involved one resident who was severely cognitively impaired. A Nursing Progress Note revealed that the one resident struck the other resident “on the right forearm with a brush, which caused immediate swelling. The note revealed there were no open areas or bleeding observed and that [the injured resident] denied pain.” The aggressive resident’s Care Plan indicated that the resident “had the potential to demonstrate physical or verbal aggression.”
The nursing staff’s goal “was that the resident would not harm others. Interventions included intervening as needed to protect the rights and safety of others, approaching the resident in a calm manner, diverting the resident’s attention, and removing the resident from the situation.”
The incident occurred in the facility dining room, as witnessed by a Certified Nursing Assistant, who revealed that the aggressive resident “was attempting to take a chair that [the injured resident] was saving for her spouse.” The aggressive resident “became angry when [the other resident] would not let go of the chair and hit [the resident] with the brush.”
The facility “failed to report an allegation of misappropriation of resident funds to the State Agency within the required time frame.” A review of a handwritten note indicated that the resident had stated that “he was missing money.” The documentation indicates that the Certified Nursing Assistant providing the resident care “reported the missing money to the resident’s relations manager” indicating that the resident “was missing $300. The report did not include notification of this allegation to the State Agency” as required by law.
