  • Failure to Develop, Write and Use Policies and Forbid Mistreatment, Neglect or Abuse of Residents – citation #F224 date June 16, 2017
  • The investigators determined “the facility failed to implement written policies to ensure residents have the right to be free from neglect.” In one investigation, two Licensed Vocational Nurses treated the resident’s stage III pressure ulcer with medicated swabs “without an order.”

    The nursing staff “failed to identify and correct the assessment and documentation of the location of the pressure ulcer (the pressure ulcer was on the left trochanter and was being documented as on the right hip.” These deficient practices could affect five residents who received wound care [and] could result in worsening of a pressure ulcer or infection.”

  • Failure to Immediately Notify the Resident, the Resident’s Doctor or Family Members of a Change in the Resident’s Condition Including a Decline in Their Health or Injury – citation #F157 date April 22, 2016
  • The nursing home “failed to consult with the resident’s Physician for [one resident] whose medication and lab level was low.” Specifically, the resident’s “Physician was not notified that the resident had three missed doses” of their medication and low lab levels.

    This deficient practice “could affect one resident taking [the medication] and could result in a decline of condition.” The investigation involved a resident who was receiving medication “used to prevent the body from rejecting a heart, liver, or kidney transplant.” The resident was to receive 1 mg of the medication through one capsule delivery by mouth every twelve hours as an anti-rejection medication of her liver transplant.

    A review of the resident’s Medication Administration Record revealed that “she did not receive her doses of [antirejection medication]” on three occasions between April 15, 2016, and April 16, 2016. Documentation shows that the Licensed Vocational Nurse per the nurse will administer when [the medication] arise from the facility [because the] medication is not available.”

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
