Houston Texas Nursing Home Safety Concerns Two Stars Rating

  • Failure to Develop, Write and Use Policies and Forbid Mistreatment, Neglect or Abuse of Residents – citation #F224 date August 16, 2017
  • The investigators documented that the facility failed to prevent the negligence of a resident. Specifically, the facility “failed to provide a mechanical lift to transfer [the resident by] the Plan of Care.”

    As a result, two Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) transferred the resident under her arms which resulted in sustained right shoulder dislocation. These failures “affected one former resident and placed all eighty-nine residents [who are] dependent on staff for assistance with transfers at risk for injury.”

    A review of the resident’s Medical Records indicated that the severely, cognitively impaired resident requires extensive assistance and a two-person physical assist for transfers and a one-person physical assist for dressing, eating, bed mobility, and personal hygiene. The resident was “totally dependent for one-person physical assist for toilet use and bathing and was frequently incontinent of bowel and bladder.”

    A review of the facility’s Provider Investigation Report dated August 10, 2017, revealed that six days earlier at 2:30 PM, a Licensed Vocational Nurse reported that two Certified Nursing Aides (CNAs) requested for him to assess the resident. Upon assessment, the resident’s “right shoulder appeared to be dislocated, and according to both CNAs, they were transferring [the resident] from the shower chair to the bed, and after [the resident] was placed on the bed they heard her right shoulder pop.”

    A hospital X-ray Report identified a fracture “through the mid-shaft of the humerus with 7.0 mm of lateral displacement of the distal component.” One CNA stated that “she was [putting the resident] back to bed after her shower and [another CNA] help her.” At that time, the resident “was able to help a little, but both of them put their arm under [the resident’s] arms and transferred from the shower chair to the bed.” When they did, they heard her arm pop.”

    The CNA stated that “she was to have used a Hoyer lift to transfer [the resident].” The CNA stated that she did not look “at the Kardex [before transferring the resident] but went off a memory.” The CNA was “suspended pending an investigation.”

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
