Jefferson North Carolina Nursing Home Safety Concerns One Star Rating

The state of North Carolina and federal government nursing home regulatory agencies routinely update their care home database system. This list contains historical information of all citations and violations.

According to Medicare, this facility maintains an overall rating of one out of five stars, including one out of five stars concerning health inspections, three out of five stars for staffing issues, and three out of five stars for quality measures.

  • Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date July 18, 2019
  • The state investigators determined the nursing home " failed to protect a cognitively impaired resident from being slapped by a staff member.” A review of the resident’s Care Plan indicated that the resident “sometimes makes inappropriate sexual advances toward staff and other residents. The goal of the Care Plan reads that [the resident] will not make inappropriate advances toward staff and other residents for the next 90 days.”

    An Initial Allegation Report, dated January 28, 2019, revealed that a Nursing Aide “was the accused individual and the details read [that it was] ‘reported to the supervisor by [another Nursing Assistant, that the allegedly abusive Nursing Assistant] was providing care to the resident.’” After completing care, the allegedly abusive Nursing Assistant lowered the resident’s bed. At that time, the resident put his hands between the Nursing Assistant’s legs and the Assistant “struck out, hitting the resident and stated, ‘don’t touch me.’”

    The allegedly abusive Nursing Assistant told the other Assistant that while providing care, the resident “put his hand on her and ran it down the front of her, almost between her legs. Without thinking, [the allegedly abusive Nursing Aide] hit him as hard as she could with her fist.”

    The Nursing Assistant stated that “she felt bad after she did it and had gone back later to make sure he was not bruised or hurt.” The abusive Nursing Assistant “reported that after she hit him, [the resident] looked like he had seen a ghost, and some people would call that abuse, but he was sexually harassing [the Assistant].”

    Documentation shows that the nursing home “became aware of the incident” on the same day the incident occurred.

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
