The federal government and the state of California routinely monitor every nursing facility to identify serious violations of established rules and regulations and levy monetary fines or deny payments through Medicare when problems are found. Typically, these violations result in penalties when investigators found severe problems that harmed or could have harmed a resident.
The nursing home received three complaints over the last three years that resulted in a violation citation. Additional information concerning the facility can be reviewed on the comprehensive California Department of Social Services Adult Protective Services Website.

- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date January 11, 2018
- Failure to Ensure Services Provided by the Nursing Facility Meet Professional Standards of Quality – citation #F2818 December 1, 2016
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to report an allegation of abuse made by [one resident] against an employee. This failure had the potential to put residents at risk for abuse.”
The investigators interviewed a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) on January 9, 2018. The CNA stated the resident had “had some altercations with other residents but was not aware of any altercations with the staff.” The resident stated during an interview that “he had an altercation with [the CNA mentioned above] two months ago or maybe longer.” The resident stated that “we were in the shower and he had my clothes on the floor, and I tried to hit him, and he kicked me.”
The resident also added that “last week, either Sunday or Monday, [the CNA] pushed my face in the wall.” The resident “was unable to elaboratively provide any further details of the accusation.”
The facility Social Services Director stated that “she was the Abuse Coordinator and investigated any allegations of abuse. The Director acknowledged she was aware of an allegation from [the resident] but did not report it.” The Director acknowledged that “she should have followed the facility’s policy and reported the allegation of abuse as soon as she was aware of it.”
The facility “failed to ensure staff followed Physician’s orders.” Specifically, a resident’s “laboratory orders were not carried out, which had the potential to affect the care of the resident.”
The investigators interviewed a Licensed Nurse who stated: “when laboratory tests were ordered, the Licensed Nurses enter the information into the unit laboratory (lab) log, which indicated the date of the requisition, resident name, lab test, date of the draw, when results were received, and Physician was notified.”
The same Licensed Nurse acknowledged that the lipid panel ordered by the Physician was “not entered into the unit lab law, and the results of the lipid panel were not with the other drawn laboratory tests.”
