Mesa Arizona Nursing Home Safety Concerns Two Stars Rating

The state of Arizona and Medicare.com routinely update their comprehensive list of deficiencies online to reflect all violations

According to Medicare, this facility maintains an overall rating of two out of five stars, including three out of five stars concerning health inspections, two out of five stars for staffing issues and four 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 December 11, 2017
  • The state investigator determined that “the facility failed to ensure [one resident] was free from staff-to-resident abuse.” The investigation involved a resident who “had short and long-term memory problems, rejected care and wandered.”

    A review of the resident’s Current Care Plan indicated that the resident “had a history of physical behaviors of hitting, resisting care, pushing staff, and yelling, which were related to dementia.”

    The Facility Investigation Report revealed that an Evening Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and the Night CNA “were completing room to room reports.” The staff “completed a witness statement for the investigation report” that revealed “upon entering the resident’s room, the resident was observed attempting to get out of bed.” Both staff members went to the resident’s room to get them back into bed.

    One CNA stated, “when we entered the room, the resident “was observed attempting to get out of bed. The resident “immediately told [the staff member] to get out that he did not want her there.” The staff member “continued to enter the room and proceeded to put on gloves. While she was putting on gloves, the resident grabbed her arm and pushed her away.”

    The other staff member “picked up a sheet and threw it in the resident’s face.” The reporting CNA stated that “I told her to stop, that I would take care of the resident.” The aggressive CNA “then stood behind the curtain and waited [for the assisting CNA] to finish.” At that time, “the resident saw her and again yelled at her to get out.”

    The allegedly aggressive CNA “came from behind the curtain, picked up the sheet, and through it again at the resident’s face.” The allegedly aggressive CNA completed an investigation statement report that included “she threw the sheet at the resident two times, although she claims she did not intend to hit the resident, she did admit to throwing the sheet in his direction.”

    The investigators determined that the facility failed to follow their Abuse Prohibition Standards of Practice policy that included “each resident has the right to be free from verbal, sexual, physical, and mental abuse, corporal punishment, and free from mistreatment.”

★★★★★
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
