According to Medicare, this facility maintains an overall rating of one out of five stars, including one 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 Make Sure Services Provided by the Nursing Facility Meet Professional Standards of Quality – citation #F281 date November 10, 2017
  • The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to develop an interim Care Plan for one resident.” The investigation involved a cognitively intact resident who “requires limited assistance for all activities.”

    The investigative team reviewed the resident’s Physician’s orders and wound care, including instructing the staff to ensure the resident wears a stint on “the left arm until seen by a follow-up orthopedic appointment in a week.” However, “no other Care Plan problems were identified or developed during the entire admission related to the resident’s burn injuries of the feet, dog bite injury, fracture with the splint on the right arm, wound care, pain, or antibiotic use, or activities of daily living.”

    The investigators interviewed a Licensed Practical Nurse who stated that “she has never initiated an admission or interim Care Plan, but she could update it if it was needed.” She further stated that “it was the Registered Nurse on duty that would initiate the Care Plan.”

    The Registered Nurse acting as the Director of Nursing stated that “the interim Care Plans are usually initiated by the MDS (Minimum Data Set) Nurse or the Director of Nursing, or any nurse can enter them. They are to be done upon admission or if not done are completed the next day with chart checks.”

    The Director further stated that “chart checks look for consents, the applicable admission assessments, and Care Plans.” The Director of Nursing stated the interim Care Plan should include activities of daily living, pain, catheters, oxygen, skin integrity, medical conditions, fall risks or precautions, and any other specific risks.”

    The state investigators reviewed the facility’s policy titled: Care Planning that reads in part:

    “The resident Care Plan will be initiated within twenty-four hours of the admission.” The “resident’s Plan of Care’s reviewed and revised on an ongoing basis, quarterly, and at a minimum or as needed with changes in condition.”

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
