Marshall Health and Rehabilitation Center
There are significant problems involving mistreatment occurring in nursing facilities nationwide. Typically, a lack of quality care often results from untrained nursing staff, minimal supervision, or insufficient staffing members on each shift.

- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date June 14, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to immediately report allegations of abuse for [one resident].” A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) statement dated June 2, 2017, “to administration [indicated that] she observed the resident had a split and bloodied lip at approximately 3:00 PM on May 30, 2017.” However, the CNA “did not report the resident’s injuries to any of her superiors or risk management.”
A record review and investigation indicated that the CNA had reported to a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) at approximately 3:00 AM she observed the resident “with a black eye.” The LPN “did not report the incident to the risk manager or administration for investigation.” A second LPN “was also made aware of the resident’s injury, but also did not report this incident to the administration or risk management.”
The survey team interviewed the Director of Clinical Services and the Risk Manager in June 2017. The Director stated that “she was notified at approximately 10:00 AM [that two LPNs noticed a bruise] on the resident’s face, and they did not know how it happened.” At the time it was reported, the Assistant Director of Clinical Services “went to observe the resident and attempted to interview him.” The Assistant Director “did not report the incident of alleged abuse to the Director of Clinical Services or the Risk Manager.”
At approximately 7:20 PM on June 1, 2017, the Director of Clinical Services conducted a head to toe assessment of the resident’s injuries and “the incident was reported to the Risk Manager, and immediate reporting was filed [at that time] to the Agency for Health Care Administration and the Department of Children and Families.”
The resident “was placed on one-on-one supervision for safety, and police were later notified of the incident. At that time, the facility Administrator (the Risk Manager) interviewed the resident, and he stated that the staff member punched him in the face three times on the day before, but he was not able to identify the staff.”
