These penalties are typically imposed when the violation is severe and harmed or could have harmed a resident.
Medicare has cited this facility for abuse. Medicare says that “every nursing home resident deserves to retain their basic human dignity and be treated with respect at all times. Abuse and neglect are never acceptable.” Nursing homes “cited for abuse are required to take steps to protect their residents.”
This nursing facility self-reported seventeen serious problems over the last thirty-six months that all resulted in violation citations. Additional information concerning the facility can be reviewed on the comprehensive California Department of Social Services Adult Protective Services Website.

The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure [one resident] had a right to be free from physical abuse inflicted by a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA).” On February 13, 2019, at 3:38 AM, the CNA slapped the resident “on the face and the back and pushed her. As a result, [the resident] felt a change in her.”
A review of the resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment indicates that the resident “was able to make her needs known, had the ability to understand others, and was able to walk and eat without assistance.” A Nursing Note indicated that the resident “reported to staff that a male resident had hit her.” The resident reported to the Assistant Program Manager that the CNA “hit her on the shoulder for no reason.” The Program Manager conducted the investigation and suspended the CNA immediately.
The facility “failed to remove a potential threat and implement their Abuse Protection Policy for [one resident], who resided in the East Unit. The resident reported to the facility that a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) had hit him. The facility had been notified of the abuse allegation but [the CNA] continued to work in the East Unit and have access to [the resident]. This deficient practice had the potential to result in physical abuse for [the resident].”
The state investigators conducted an investigation in an unannounced visit to the facility concerning “an allegation of physical abuse that was reported to the Department.” The report indicates that the resident “accused two agent staff of pushing and hitting him on February 18, 2018, at around 11:30 PM.” The resident stated that “one of the staff was a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA).”
A review of the Staff Assignment Sheet indicated that the CNA was working in East Unit but was “moved to work the West Unit.”
