legal resources necessary to hold negligent facilities accountable.
Meadowbrook Acres Nursing Center
Nursing home negligence takes on many forms, where the nursing staff can misbehave, or other patients assault the resident because of a lack of supervision. Many nursing homes throughout West Virginia are understaffed, or the administration hires inadequately trained nurses and nurse's aides. Other nursing facilities did not follow acceptable practices for providing the utmost care.
All nursing homes are required to have insurance to protect their interests when something goes wrong. You can rely on us to ensure you or your loved one is protected too!

- Failure to Provide Appropriate Treatment and Care According to Orders, Resident's Preferences and Goals- citation #F684 date March 20, 2019

The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to monitor and provide ongoing clinical assessments during the final days of [one resident] reviewed for a care area of death."
The state investigators reviewed Nursing Notes and found "no indication that the resident expired at the facility. The last Nursing Note written [before the resident's death] involved a family member's request for the resident to not participate in bowel movement protocol. The Death Certificate noted that the resident had died of natural causes.
The state investigators interviewed the Director of Nursing, who reviewed the resident's medical records. The Director "confirmed there was no evidence the resident was assessed and provided Comfort Care as indicated" on the resident's records.
The "facility failed to provide treatment to help prevent pressure wounds. This [failure] was evident for one resident observed who currently resided in the facility," and had contractures.
The resident "wore a palm guard on his contracted hand with no padding between contracted fingers, which overlay one another, thereby putting them at risk for developing a pressure wound."
The surveyors observed the resident at noon, "sitting in a specialty chair in the therapy department. He wore a tan/white palm protector to the right hand." At that time, a Physical Therapy Assistant and Restorative Aide were present and "were asked if they could remove the palm protector from the right hand." The palm could then be visualized. The surveyors saw "the right index finger [laid] tightly against the third finger of the right hand."
There "was no padding between the fingers." Both aides were "asked if they could separate those two fingers without causing the resident pain so that the skin could be inspected between those two fingers."
The surveyors observed an obvious indentation measuring approximately one inch long "on the third finger, and narrow and with, because my pressure from the contracted, bent, index finger or nail cutting into it."
The surveyors noted that there was "no odor [in the] opened area." One Assistant stated that "she would obtain finger separators for him [and agreed] that without padding between those two fingers, it could cause a pressure wound to develop."
