Florida and the federal government have the legal obligation to monitor every nursing facility and impose monetary fines or deny payments through Medicare if the home has violated established nursing home regulations and rules. In severe cases, the nursing facility will receive multiple penalties if investigators find the violations are severe and harmed or could have harmed a resident.
Within the last three years, investigators imposed two monetary penalties against Magnolia Health and Rehab Facility, citing substandard care. These penalties include a $44,747 fine on April 12, 2017, and a $16,347 fine on October 20, 2016, for a total of $61,094.

- Failure to Ensure Residents Are Free from Significant Medication Errors – citation #F760 date March 5, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home failed to ensure that “residents are free from significant medication errors for [three residents] sampled for medications.” One resident “received medication patches without removal of old ones.”
The two other residents “did not receive their pain medication timely as ordered.” The excess of the medication patches “may increase side effects. Delays in pain medication have the potential for decreased pain control. The patch use had not been audited as per the Quality Assurance Plan.”
The state investigators interviewed a resident’s daughter, who said that her mother received Neupro patches each day. The daughter said that “she has found more than one of the medication patches on her mother’s back on several occasions.” The daughter had indicated that she had reported the problem to the Director of Nursing and that the last time she “had seen two patches on her mother was on January 24, 2019.”
The state investigators reviewed WebMD to show that the symptoms of the Neupro patch for an overdose could include changes in mood and mental status involving hallucinations and confusion. Additionally, uncontrolled movements can be a serious side effect. The website indicates that “an accumulation of patches can result in an overdose.”
The surveyors interviewed the Director of Nursing who verified “she had observed two patches on the resident’s back at the same time on January 24, 2019. She said she had initiated a Quality Assurance Plan to prevent further issues.” The Director indicated that two nurses were now required to sign for the removal of all medication patches in the facility.
The Director stated that the resident had also “not received the Neupro patch as ordered by the Physician [and that] audits had not been completed three times weekly after the resident had been found with two patches on her back.”
