  • Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse, Physical Punishment, and Being Separated from Others – citation #F223 date February 16, 2017
  • The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure residents were free from neglect for [one resident] reviewed for neglect.”

    Specifically, the resident “fell and sustained a fractured right arm. This failure affected [the resident] and placed the remaining seventeen residents on the secured unit at risk for abuse, neglect, physical harm, mental harm, injury, and hospitalization.”

    The investigation involved a severely, cognitively impaired resident who “requires extensive assistance by one staff member for bed mobility, transfers, dressing, personal hygiene, and toileting.” Documentation indicates that the resident was “a high risk for falls.”

    A review of the facility’s Incident and Accident Reports for that resident revealed that “she had three falls [before her] fall on June 4, 2017.” The resident had fallen on September 24, 2016 and December 23, 2016.” On the last fall, the resident’s x-ray revealed injuries.

    Documentation describing what happened indicated that the resident “was up to the wheelchair and assisted to the bathroom by a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA).” At about the time the resident was assisted into bed, an alarm from another room sounded, and the assisting CNA “requested [the resident] to wait in the bed.”

    The CNA went to the other room to check the alarm, and when returning, the resident “was noted to be on her right side.” The nursing staff assisted the resident and indicated that there was pain to the right shoulder, rib areas and arms. At that time, the resident was able to move the left upper extremity and lower extremities without pain.

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
