Monrovia Gardens Healthcare Center
Never before in American history have so many senior citizens have entered their retirement years. The advancing age of this massive population has increased the need for additional beds in nursing homes and placed a significant demand on the number of Nurses and Nurse’s Aides required to meet their needs. Unfortunately, mistreatment still occurs, and many facilities nationwide.

In some cases, the nursing home receives multiple penalties if surveyors find severe violations that harmed or could have harmed a resident.
Medicare has cited this facility for abuse. Medicare says that “every nursing home resident deserves to retain their basic human dignity and be treated with respect at all times. Abuse and neglect are never acceptable.” Nursing homes “cited for abuse are required to take steps to protect their residents.”
This nursing facility received two complaints and self-reported seven serious issues over the last three years that resulted in violation citations.

- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date January 24, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure [one resident] was free from mistreatment by [a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), who] pushed down on the resident’s bladder, trying to force her to urinate (release urine from the bladder). This deficient practice caused [the resident] discomfort.”
A review of the resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment indicates that the patient “did not have the capacity to understand and make decisions and needed extensive to total assistance from staff with dressing, eating, personal hygiene, and toilet use.” The document also indicates that the resident “was incontinent of bowel and bladder.”
The facility investigation documentation indicates that one CNA had reported that she had witnessed another CNA “pushing down on the resident’s bladder, trying to get the resident’s bladder to empty out. During this incident, the resident was yelling out, ‘No, No, No.’”
The survey team interviewed the reporting CNA who stated, “during the time of the incident, they were changing the resident’s chuck pads (disposable water-proof pads used to protect bedding). The resident started to urinate, and the other CNA said, “she does this a lot and started to push on the resident’s bladder, forcing the resident’s bladder to empty.” The CNA making the report said that she told the other CNA “she was going to complain.”
The reporting CNA stated that the resident “did not talk a lot, but she clearly heard the resident yelling, ‘No, No, No.’” The Director of Staff Development stated that “she does not train any staff to push down on the residents’ bladder to force them to urinate.” The Administrator said that the CNA had admitted that they had lightly pushed down on the resident’s bladder “so she can urinate and that [the resident] was yelling during the incident.”
