Florida and the federal government have a legal responsibility for monitoring every nursing home in the state. 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 three complaints over the last three years that resulted in a violation citation. Additional information concerning the facility can be reviewed on the comprehensive Florida Adult Protective Services Website.

- Failure to Ensure That Every Resident Is Free from the Use of Physical Restraints Unless Need for Medical Treatment – citation #F604 date March 29, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to document ongoing evaluations of the need for physical restraints.” The state investigators observed the resident on the North Wing second floor in the Day Room/Activity Room across from the nurse’s station. The resident was seen “sitting in a wheelchair. A lap tray was on the chair. It covered the entire front of the chair and fit so that the arms were above the lap tray.”
The resident was “sitting with the chest close to the lap tray and arms overstretched and over the lap tray. [The resident] was asked if they can remove the lap tray. The response was not appropriate for the question. The resident made no attempt to remove the lap tray.”
The investigative team reviewed the resident’s records and Quarterly MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment that found that “[the resident] requires extensive one-person physical assist for transfers and toilet use. [The resident] was coded as having a restraint that could not be removed.”
The resident’s Care Plans indicated that the patient “had a Care Plan for a history of multiple falls with the approach [to use] a soft lap tray to the wheelchair for safety. Approaches include to assess the need for the least restrictive protective device.” However, the approaches had not been updated since October 2, 2017, more than four months earlier.
Documentation signed by the Physical Therapy Assistant on October 5, 2017, indicated that the restraint “should remain in place.” The Director of Nursing provided two Fall Risk/Safety/Restraint Reduction Worksheets that “were signed throughout by the Assistant Director of Nursing.” There was an informed consent for the use of the lap tray signed by the resident’s power of attorney on March 4, 2016.
Subsequent paperwork was not filled out or maintained correctly, and there were no new recommendations on how to reduce the use of the need for restraints. The Assistant Director of Nursing stated that “they do quarterly assessments even though the time-frame between the assessments were October 2, 2017, to March 29, 2018 (five months and twenty-seven days).” The Assistant Director of Nursing responded, “I guess we will need to change it.”
