  • Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation date June 6, 2018
  • The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to supervise a resident with a known aspiration risk [sucking food into the airway], after a meal tray was served in his room while he was in bed, not following an order to be in the dining room with supervision.”

    The resident “was served dinner in his room, unsupervised, choked, became unresponsive, required cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and was admitted to the hospital.”

    The state investigators determined that an Immediate Jeopardy began when [the resident was left unsupervised in his room with his dinner tray.” A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) indicated that even though she was not working that evening that the resident choked, she heard from others that “his dinner tray was delivered by a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and left in his room for an undetermined amount of time.”

    At some point, another CNA “came into his room to assist him [in eating]. She indicated before the second CNA arrived into the resident’s room to assist him, he was already choking.” A Progress Note indicated to the resident was choking during dinner choking on a piece of meat. However, the resident “continued to choke. The CNA notified the nurse, the [Heimlich maneuver] was initiated [and] 911 was called.”

    The resident began turning blue and became unresponsive. The nursing staff initiated CPR before paramedics arrived who took over the resident’s care and ultimately transferred the resident to the hospital.

    When the emergency medical technicians arrived at the scene, they intubated the resident and “pulled out a very large amount of impacted bread from his oral pharynx. The paramedics intubated the resident after two minutes of CPR.” Then “he started gagging against the breathing tube, so the paramedics removed the breathing tube and placed [the resident] on a high concentration of oxygen.”

    Though the resident was able to maintain breathing, they experienced respiratory distress sometime later and was placed on a ventilator and ultimately placed in hospice after being dismissed from the hospital. A Registered Nurse (RN) at the facility indicated that the resident “was not supposed to be left unsupervised while he was eating.”

Client Reviews

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
