  • Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date December 15, 2016
  • The state investigators determined “the facility failed to report a resident’s allegation of abuse and a potential resident-to-resident abuse [incident] to the State Agency.” The incident involved a resident who stated that “she had been physically abused by being thrown into the bed by a staff member.”

    The resident indicated that “she reported this [incident] to the Head Nurse and [then] the staff member no longer took care of her.” A Registered Nurse (RN) stated that “she did have one incident recently where a resident complained of being thrown into bed by a staff member.” The RN said that “the staff member was removed from duty for a few days and then reassigned.”

    The Director of Nursing, who also serves as the Abuse Coordinator, indicated that “she had not had any abuse reports since August [2016].” The Director “acknowledged she had investigated allegations of abuse but had not reported them to the State Agency.”

    The Director said, “she recently did an investigation involving [a resident] where the resident said the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) had been rude. The Director said the resident reported she had a bruise on her leg after being transferred by the CNA.”

    The Director “reviewed her written resident interview, which said the resident had reported [the CNA] picked her up and threw her into the bed. The resident felt this was abuse and willful on the part of the CNA.”

    The Director stated that “she suspended [the CNA] and began her investigation [reporting] the allegation to the facility Administrator.” Together “they went back to re-interview the resident [finding that] the resident was mad about the incident and said, ‘I have already talked to about this.’ During this interview, the resident recanted her allegation as being abuse.” The Director stated, “she did not have any documentation of this [statement] in her file.”

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
