Kentucky and the federal government have the legal obligation to monitor every nursing facility and impose monetary fines or deny payments through Medicare if the home has violated established nursing home regulations and rules. In severe cases, the nursing facility will receive multiple penalties if investigators find the violations are severe and harmed or could have harmed a resident.
Within the last three years, Medicare denied payment on September 04, 2018, due to a lack of quality care. The nursing home received one complaint over the last thirty-six months that resulted in a violation citation.
Additional information concerning the facility can be reviewed on the State of Kentucky Adult Protective Services Website.

- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date September 4, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to provide adequate supervision to prevent accidents for [one resident].” It was determined that “the facility failed to ensure an adequate amount of supervision/assistance was provided when [the staff] care planned [the resident] to need one to two staff for incontinent care.”
The documentation shows that on July 28, 2018, a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) “provided incontinent care for [one resident and when the resident] threw his/her good leg (left) to the right side to assist with turning, [the resident’s] momentum caused [the resident] to roll off the right side of the bed onto the floor.” The deficient practice by the nursing staff resulted in “a fractured right femur.”
The investigation involved a moderately, cognitively impaired resident who “requires physical assist with bed mobility and has impairment on [both sides of their upper or lower extremities].” A review of the Alert Charting Initial Note dated July 28, 2018, revealed that the resident “was transferred out to the local emergency room for [a] fall and pain in the right hip and leg, most recent pain level was yelling related to the pain in the right hip and leg.”
Possible documentation revealed that the resident was presented to the emergency room with a right femur fracture. The resident “was in a tremendous amount of pain, was yelling and very agitated. The Physician prescribed pain medications but did not see any other route except to surgically fix the fracture due to [the resident’s] severity of pain, and the pain would be extremely hard to control without a surgical fixing.”
The resident’s Primary Care Provider stated on August 31, 2018, that “the facility made her aware of [the resident’s] fall when she ordered [the resident to be] sent out [for] treatment and evaluation. She stated it was an unfortunate event, and in her opinion, it was not neglect or malice intent.”
