The state of North Carolina and the federal government have a legal responsibility for monitoring every nursing home. These agencies have the authority to impose monetary penalties or hold payment from Medicare if the nursing facility has violated rules and regulations. Typically, the more serious the violation, the higher the monetary fines, especially if neglect or abuse caused harm or could have caused harm to a resident.
The nursing home received thirteen complaints over the last three years that resulted in a violation citation. Additional information concerning the facility can be reviewed on the comprehensive North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Adult Protective Services Website.

The investigators determined the facility "failed to report an allegation of misappropriation of a resident’s personal property to the State Agency, Healthcare Personnel Investigators and law enforcement.” The nursing home also failed to “do a thorough investigation of the allegation , for [one resident], of misappropriation of personal property.”
The investigation involved a cognitively intact resident with “no short-term or long-term memory problems [and] no behaviors or moods exhibited.” The facility investigation revealed that a Charge Nurse indicated the resident reported to a Medication Aide that the Aide had stolen medication “from his bag, located in his room.”
The resident told the Charge Nurse that the Aide “had come into his room while he was in the restroom, got into his bookbag, and took his [medication] and added water to the bottle.” The resident said, “now it is no good, and I think I am going to call the police. Take fingerprints and send [them] to the lab.”
The resident’s family member was visiting at the time and told the resident, “not to call the police.” The Charge Nurse reported the incident “to the Director of Nursing, who was out of the facility at the time.”
The “facility failed to ensure the required safety precautions were taken for [two residents] reviewed for accidents.” Specifically, one resident “experienced a fall from his bed, while he was being given a bed bath by a nursing assistant on January 13, 2019.” The accident resulted in “a laceration to the forehead” and a broken right little finger.
After the fall, “the facility determined the resident required two-person assistance while in bed, when receiving activities of daily living care. On February 7, 2019, the resident was being provided incontinence care by one Nursing Assistant.” The “resident experienced another fall from the bed.” This accident caused “a laceration above his left eyebrow and a skin tear to his right middle finger,” while being transferred by one assistant.
