Financial Penalties and Violations
The state of Nevada and the federal government have a legal responsibility for monitoring every nursing home. 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 damage to a resident.
The nursing home received eight complaints over the last three years that resulted in a violation citation. Additional information concerning the facility can be reviewed on the comprehensive Nevada Department of Health and Human Services Adult Protective Services Website.

- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date June 12, 2018
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to complete an elopement risk assessment and monitor a resident at risk for elopement (wandering away) [who was] unsupervised.” The investigation involved a resident “who wandered into other residents’ rooms.”
A CNA stated that “the resident was at risk for elopement, [explaining] when a resident was at risk for elopement, the staff checked on the resident frequently -- every 30 minutes to one hour.”
The CNA explained that “the resident could self-propel. However, [the resident] could not function on his own in the community if he eloped.” The CNA indicated that “the resident was often confused [and acknowledge] the resident eloped from the facility [and] was found on a side street.”
The resident “acknowledged being able to push himself in a wheelchair down the hall.” On the same day, a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) indicated that “a resident at risk for elopement was assessed [during] admission, readmission, quarterly, and when the incident of elopement occurred.”
The LPN indicated that the resident “should be [checked] frequently, at least every hour for signs of wandering/elopement.” On June 7, 2018, at 2:30 PM, staff observed the resident “self-propelling in a wheelchair down the hallway [before exiting] out the 1100 Hall fire exit door.”
One minute later, a CNA exited out the same exit door to follow the resident. The CNA indicated that “the resident was not supposed to have exited out the door and should not have been in the area.” The CNA explained that “the fire exit door led to the street and was not secured.”
The Maintenance Director said that the exit door was alarmed and explained that “the fire exit door was not alarmed during the day because staff went in and out of the door and the [ambulance] pulled up at the door.” The Director stated that the door was only manually alarmed between the hours of 8:00 PM and 10:00 PM. The alarm was “to prevent residents from leaving and people from entering the facility at night.”
