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 aides. Other nursing facilities did not follow acceptable practices for providing the utmost care.

- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents - citation #F689 date April 4, 2018
- Failure to Provide Appropriate Pressure Ulcer Care Prevent New Ulcers from Developing- citation #F686 date April 5, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to provide an environment free from accident hazards, over which the facility had control. Chemical substances and shaving razors were unsecured and accessible to residents in the shower room. This practice had the potential to affect more than a limited number of residents."
The facility Administrator stated that "all chemical substances and razors should be locked up." The Administrator said that "the housekeeping cart should have never been left unattended in the shower room."
The "facility failed to ensure a resident admitted with pressure ulcers received the necessary care and services to promote healing of pressure ulcers. Weekly wound assessments of the Stage IV pressure ulcer were incomplete and inaccurate. Wound care was not conducted, an aseptic technique and wound cleaning were not performed following the manufacturer's guidelines.
During a resident and family interview, the resident's husband reported that "she was admitted to the facility with pressure ulcers and the nurse told him it was not healing or getting better." The surveyors reviewed the resident's medical records that revealed "multiple pressure ulcers on her buttocks and coccyx," upon admission.
The weekly assessment indicated that by February 12, 2019, the "wound was painful and assessed as showing 25% bone, 25% slough (dead skin tissue), and 50% granulation tissue (new tissue)." The wound measured 7.0 cm long by 5.0 cm wide by 1.3 cm deep.
By February 18, 2019, the painful wound deepened in size and now measured 1.4 cm deep. Seven days later, on February 25, 2019, the "wound remained painful, with 50% slough and 50% granulation tissue." The wound had increased in width to 4.3 cm, and grew even more significant in size by March 6, 2019, to 4.5 cm. By March 18, 2019, the wound grew in size to 7.0 cm long by 5.0 cm wide and 1.3 cm deep.
The Assistant Director of Nursing acknowledged that the resident's husband indicated that the wound was not improving.
