  • According to state surveyors, “the facility failed to assess a pressure ulcer for [one resident] reviewed for pressure ulcers.” A wound note dated October 21, 2016 “indicated the wound measured 2.8 cm in length, 4.0 cm and with, and 0.3 cm and depth.”

    The surveyors interviewed the Director of Health Services who indicated that “there were no measurements for the resident’s pressure ulcer for November.” The individual indicated “the Wound Nurse was no longer employed at the facility, and the new Unit Manager/Wound Nurse just started last week.”

    An LPN stated during an interview that while performing wound care, they “did not measure the wound.” Without measurement, there is no way to know if the wound is healing or worsening.

    However, during observations on December 11, 2017, the resident “was sitting in a chair, wearing socks without a non-skid bottom.” When asked, the Unit Manager indicated that the resident “should have non-skid footwear on her feet.” The Director of Nursing stated that “the resident was to have non-skid footwear on her feet.”

  • Failure to Provide and Implement an Infection Protection and Control Program – citation date December 11, 2017
  • The facility “failed to handle clean and soiled linens and clothes according to the facility policy.” The facility “failed to administer medication using infection control practices for [one resident] observed for medication administration.”

    The nursing home “failed to store respiratory equipment appropriately [for two residents] and failed to ensure [two employees] receive their annual TB screening.” The nursing home “failed to establish and implement a standard precaution and infection control monitoring program. This deficient practice had the potential to affect [all fifty-four] residents residing in the building.”

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
