  • Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date June 15, 2016
  • According to state investigators, “the facility failed to provide adequate assistance for the provision of care.” The incident involved an alert and oriented resident who “requires the assistance of two persons for bed mobility and care.”

    The nurse’s documentation indicated that at 8:56 PM, the resident “was assisted by one person with p.m. care (care before going to bed), she was turned to the right, and the mattress shifted, causing the resident to fall to the floor.”

    Because of the fall, the resident sustained injuries. The resident confirmed, “that only one person had assisted her when she fell off the bed.” The Administrator also confirmed the failure to provide appropriate numbers of staff for transferring this resident.

  • Failure to Provide Safe and Appropriate Respiratory Care for a Resident When Needed – citation #F695 date October 26, 2018
  • The nursing home “failed to obtain and clarify Physician’s orders for [a breathing tube inserted through the neck to assist breathing].” The survey team observed the resident with a passy muir valve (a valve placed on a hub that redirects airflow, allowing speaking and improved swallowing).” The resident’s Ear, Nose and Throat Consul Report revealed that the resident had tracheal narrowing and the Physician would not decannulate at that time “due to stenosis (narrowing of the throat) and risk of airway obstruction.”

    New Physician’s orders indicated that the cannula “was to be changed monthly by a Respiratory Therapist and that staff was to suction the resident’s [tube] every shift and as needed for patency (keep tube clear and open).”

    However, a review of the resident’s clinical record revealed “no Physician’s orders regarding the care of the resident’s inner cannula and passy muir valve.” The Director of Nursing confirmed that “there was no documentation that the Physician’s orders were obtained and clarified regarding care of the resident’s inner cannula (how often the inner cannula needed to be changed) and Passy Muir valve (how often to cleanse the valve and ‘wearing schedule’ of the valve) by the facility staff.

    The surveyors documented “that the facility failed to ensure one resident was provided appropriate care and services consistent with professional standards of practice.”

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
