Eustis Florida Nursing Home Safety Concerns

The state of Florida and federal government nursing home regulatory agencies routinely update their care home database system. This list contains historical information of all citations and violations.

According to Medicare, this facility maintains an overall rating of one out of five stars, including one out of five stars concerning health inspections, three out of five stars for staffing issues, and four out of five stars for quality measures.

  • Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date November 8, 2018
  • The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure the nursing staff reported an allegation of abuse for investigation for [one resident].” The surveyors attempted to interview the resident who only turned his head and closed his eyes. A few minutes later, “he opened his eyes and seemed to look around the room but did not respond to any questions.” He was offered several items but did not respond to any offer.

    A review of a Progress Note written on October 15, 2018, signed by a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) indicated that he was requested to come to a resident’s room. Upon entering the room, the LPN indicated that the resident had told him that “someone, specifically a male, has hit him.”

    The LPN stated that this is not the first time the resident made an accusation. He “could not remember any name of who hit him, he began naming the sequence of names.” After this, the LPN inspected the resident’s body, including the “cheeks, head, neck, forehead, and orbitals for signs and symptoms of abuse.”

    The Licensed Practical Nurse stated that after the assessment, it was noted that “all areas at this time of the assessment are free of signs of bruising, bleeding, or injury. The resident is alert to self. Not alert to time, situation, or place.”

    The resident’s sister had noted that she had reported the comment that her brother had made to an assigned floor nurse and stated that “she had no evidence of any abuse, but her brother made the statement, so she felt she needed to report the information.” The sister indicated that “each time she comes to visit, which is every week, she finds minor issues and reports them to the nurses. She stated it is possible someone did hit him, but she does not have any evidence or further information.”

★★★★★
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
