  • Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date February 25, 2019
  • The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure the resident’s smoking evaluation accurately reflected the resident’s smoking status and failed to ensure that the resident was identified as a smoker on the facility smoking roster.”

    A review of the resident’s Care Plan dated January 23, 2019, “did not reflect any information regarding smoking.” However, a review of the facility smoking roster contains a list of residents who had smoked [on that day] at 9:00 AM. The roster identified the resident “was not on the facility smoking list.”

    The facility Director of Nursing indicated that the list did not include the resident and further identified “that resident should not participate in facility smoking if not identified as a smoker on the smoking list.”

    In a separate summary statement of deficiencies dated September 20, 2018, the facility “failed to ensure that wander guard function checks were conducted every night for a resident who was assessed to be at risk for elopement [wandering away, per] Physician’s orders.” This investigation involved a resident who “ambulated independently.”

    The investigation identified that at approximately 10:50 PM “two nurses had arrived at work and the employee entrance alarm was sounding. Once inside, the nurses were approached by a Nurse Aide who had responded to the alarm, and the Charge Nurse was looking for [the resident].”

    Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date February 8, 2019

    The nursing home “failed to provide adequate supervision to prevent one resident from assaulting another resident.” One resident’s Care Plan identified the resident “had maladaptive behaviors and hit other residents, with interventions to redirect the resident, remove the resident from the environment and approach calmly.”

    A Nurse’s Note dated July 28, 2018, documented that the aggressive resident “attempted to punch two different residents on two different occasions on July 28, 2018. The Nursing Notes indicated that no injuries were identified with the two incidents.” However, the aggressive resident “was sent out to an acute care facility for evaluation.”

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
