Financial Penalties and Violations

In some cases, the nursing home receives multiple penalties if surveyors find severe violations that harmed or could have harmed a resident.
Medicare has cited this facility for abuse. Medicare says that “every nursing home resident deserves to retain their basic human dignity and be treated with respect at all times. Abuse and neglect are never acceptable.” Nursing homes “cited for abuse are required to take steps to protect their residents.”
The nursing home received two complaints over the last three years that resulted in a violation citation. Additional information concerning the facility can be reviewed on the comprehensive Nevada Department of Health and Human Services Adult Protective Services Website.

- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date June 24, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to prevent verbal abuse by a staff member toward a resident.” Additionally, the facility “failed to prevent neglect by a staff member for [another resident].”
In the first investigation, a resident verbalized that the Activity Director “had called him a profane name during a recent Dietary Council Meeting.” The resident said that a month earlier on May 1, 2019, the patient “was waiting with other residents and staff for the Dietary Council Meeting to start.” The resident “recalled asking aloud where the Administrator was so the meeting could get started and commented [that] it was like the Administrator to always be late.”
The resident then said that the Activity Director “called the resident a profane name.” The resident’s “eyes became red and watery as the resident described feeling embarrassed and offended by the comment.”
The resident recalled that “there were eleven or so other residents and several other staff members present in the meeting at the time.” The resident said that they no longer “participate in activities as much as the resident use to, and as a result attends only one or two activities a month.” The resident explained that they “did not like being around the Activity Director any longer.”
The state investigators interviewed the Activity Director who said that the resident “was talking bad about the staff during a recent Dietary Council Meeting.” The Director confirmed “having used a profane word to describe [the resident] in front of other residents and staff members in the Dietary Council Meeting.”
The Administrator confirmed that “the facility did not tolerate verbal abuse of any kind [and confirmed that] the Activity Director was provided in-service training on abuse toward residents after the Dietary Council Meeting incident.”
