  • Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation date September 27, 2018
  • The state investigators determined an Immediate Jeopardy situation existed “due to the facility’s failure to provide adequate supervision and interventions for a resident with a history of suicide attempts.” The resident was admitted to the facility “after an episode of depression and attempted suicide.”

    The investigation involved a male resident at the facility with “a long history of mental health issues [that involve] thoughts of death, dying and suicide.” The resident “has thoughts of jumping off a bridge or overdosing. Sometimes [the resident] feels like [he will] never wake up.” The resident has “past psychiatric history and multiple psychiatric hospitalizations with multiple suicide attempts and gestures in the past.”

    The investigators reviewed the resident’s Based on Care Plan dated May 5, 2018, that “did not address the resident’s history of depression and suicide attempts.” The surveyors reviewed the Health Status Note dated July 11, 2018, that documented an Aide informed the nurse on the hall that the “resident was upset and had head-butted and punched the picture in the hall. Upon arrival, the nurse noted the resident was bleeding from the forehead and leaning up against the wall.”

    The resident “proceeded to throw a chair at the window and [also a] vending machine.” The nurse “was able to calm the resident down enough to apply pressure to the left hand cut from punching the picture on the wall. The resident stated that “he was upset and homicidal.”

    The resident’s updated Care Plan included goals ensured that the resident did not have any major injuries from behaviors. However, “there was no documentation that the facility had a psychiatric consult and services provided to the resident after the July 11, 2018 episode of the resident being homicidal and head-butting and punching pictures on the wall that resulted in a laceration to the forehead and hand.”

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
