legal resources necessary to hold negligent facilities accountable.
Millennium Post Acute Rehabilitation 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 South Carolina 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.

- Failure to Provide Appropriate Pressure Ulcer Care Prevent New Ulcers from Developing – citation #F686 date October 18, 2018
- Failure to Provide Care by Qualified Persons According to Each Resident’s Written Plan of Care – citation #F282 date July 13, 2016
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to provide necessary services to prevent the development of a pressure ulcer for [one resident].” The resident’s medical records indicate the resident had “a Stage III pressure ulcer on the left heel.”
The state investigators reviewed the resident’s records that revealed: “the resident had a red opened area on the left heel noted on August 31, 2018, with no other assessment or measurements of the wound.” The surveyors interviewed the Wound Care Nurse who stated that “the nurse who found the wound usually measured the wound when it was found.”
The Assistant Director of Nursing confirmed that “there was no measurement documented. The Wound Nurse also confirmed that the Wound Physician did not evaluate the resident” until six days after the wound was identified.
The facility “failed to ensure Care Plans were followed for [one resident] reviewed for a range of motion and [another resident] reviewed for nutrition.” On one occasion, a resident’s Care Plan “was not followed related to splint wear and [another resident’s] Care Plan was not followed related to a depth of dining equipment and documentation of coughing while dining.”
The facility Director of Nursing confirmed that one resident’s “Care Plan should be followed all times, and she/he should have had his/her splints in place” when they were not.
