  • Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies That Prevent Mistreatment, Neglect or Abuse of Residents – citation #F226 date March 3, 2017
  • The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to complete an investigation and failed to report to the appropriate State Agency an allegation of abuse and neglect for [one resident].” The investigation involved an alert, oriented resident who requires “extensive assists with bed mobility and transfers.”

    Documentation shows that the resident “had impairment on both sides of upper extremities (shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand).” The Weekly Notes Form documented an incident with the resident’s Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). The resident “asked for the CNA not to come back. The nurse said she reported to the supervisor on September 14, 2016. [The resident] also reported it took a really long time to get medication.”

    The investigators noted that “there was no documentation of a complete investigation of [the resident’s] allegation. There is no report made to the appropriate State Agency.” The surveyors interviewed the Executive Director, who identified the resident’s concerns. The Director revealed that the resident’s reported concerns “were accelerated to a grievance.”

    Both the Executive Director and Director of Nursing Services indicated they knew about “the resident’s allegations about not wanting the CNA to come back, [the CNA] took a long time to get medication, and the CNA was rude.” The Administration said these issues “were not allegations of abuse and not reported to the State. The allegations were customer service issues.”

    The Director of Nursing Services interviewed the resident who indicated that a CNA “told [the resident] they had thirteen residents, and [the CNA] took an hour to return to [the resident]. [The CNA] was coached on customer service and was no longer assigned to [that resident]. There was no documented evidence of an investigation of [the resident’s] allegation of taking a really long time to get medication.” The Director explained that “[the resident] did not mention the allegation during an interview.”

    The Executive Director “confirmed [the resident’s] allegation of taking a really long time to get medication should have been investigated” and that the “work was not completed for [the resident’s] allegations because they were customer service issues and not abuse allegations.”

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
