In some cases, the nursing home receives multiple penalties if surveyors find severe violations that harmed or could have harmed a resident.
Within the last three years, federal investigators imposed a monetary fine against Majestic Care of Avon Rehabilitation Center for $10,563 on March 03, 2016, citing substandard care. The nursing home also received three complaints over the last three years that resulted in a violation citation.

- Failure to Ensure the Residents with Reduced Range of Motion Get Proper Treatment and Services to Increase the Range of Motion – citation #F318 date September 15, 2017
- Failure to Develop and Implement a Program That Investigates, Controls and Keeps Infection from Spreading – citation #F4418 September 15, 2017
According to investigators, “the facility failed to provide services to ensure that a resident with limited range of motion received appropriate treatment and services to increase range of motion and further prevent a decrease in range of motion.” The investigation involved a resident that currently “had a contracture (defined as a condition of fixed high resistance to passive stretch of a muscle) of the right upper extremity.”
The resident “did not wear a splint or receive range of motion (ROM) exercise.” At that time, the resident “was observed sitting in a wheelchair at the nurse’s station” while “not wearing a splint on her right upper extremity.
The surveyors reviewed the resident’s Care Plan that indicated the resident had “a loss of a range of motion related to physical limitations.” The Care Plan included interventions including “apply splints to the right elbow as indicated, report signs and symptoms of alteration and skin integrity. Assess for and report any discomfort during the range of motion exercises or care related to contractures.”
The resident’s current Physician’s orders included a “right hand splint to be worn during the day as tolerated, checked for skin issues.” However, when the investigators reviewed the Progress Notes over the last thirty days, the notations “did not reveal any documentation related to splint use or range of motion.”
The nursing home “failed to keep residents free of lice (a parasitic insect of the human scalp, exclusively feeding on human blood) for [four residents] living in the facility.” The nursing home also “failed to prevent urinary catheter tubing from touching the floor for [two residents] randomly observed with urinary catheter tubing on the floor.”
The Director of Nursing at the facility provided a Lice Investigation Timeline showing that the resident “received services in the beauty shop.” One of the three residents “was found with lice and treated; all other residents were cleared of lice by a head check.”
