    Also, a Registered Nurse (RN) “did not wash or sanitize his hands after perineal care and before setting up [another resident’s] oxygen concentrator. This deficient practice could affect three residents who are incontinent on the 600 Hall and two residents who received oxygen on the 600 Hall and could result in the spread of disease.”

    Failure to Ensure That Nurse’s Aides Show They Have the Skills and Techniques to Be Able to Care for Residents’ Needs – citation #F498 date June 8, 2017

    The facility “failed to ensure [a CNA] demonstrated competency while providing incontinent care to [one resident] observed for incontinent care.” Specifically, the CNA did not clean the resident’s “right and left buttocks during incontinence care. This deficient practice could affect fourteen residents on the 300 Hall who received incontinent care and could result in the spread of infection.”

    The state investigators observed two staff members, including one CNA providing resident incontinent care. After cleaning the resident’s rectal area, the CNA “did not clean the resident’s right or left buttocks.”

    The CNA confirmed during an interview that “she forgot to clean the resident’s right and left buttocks after cleaning the rectal area.” The Director of Nursing revealed that the resident’s right and left buttock should have been cleaned after cleaning the rectal area.” The nursing staff failed to follow the facility’s proper procedures when providing perineal care that could have affected fourteen residents “who are incontinent on the 300 Hall.”

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
