Typically, hefty fines are levied against the nursing home when the most egregious violations have occurred that harmed or could harm a resident.
This nursing facility self-reported a serious problem over the last three years that resulted in a violation citation. Additional information concerning the facility can be reviewed on the State of Tennessee Adult Protective Services Website.

- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date August 2, 2017
- Failure to Develop Programs That Investigate, Control and Keep Infections from Spreading – citation #F441 date August 2, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to implement interventions for falls for [one resident] reviewed for accident hazards.” The state investigators reviewed the Post-Fall Initial Note that documented that at 7:00 AM on July 23, 2017, the patient was “found in bed with a wound to the head stating he lost his balance and fell.”
The resident “received a half dollar sized contusion on the back of the head with lacerations in the center." The Manager Post-Fall Investigation indicated there was a need to make changes in the Care Plan and place a fall mat at the bedside.
The Interim Care Plan that was written the day before the incident revealed that the resident “was at risk for falls and had an intervention for the bed to be in the lowest position and locked. The Care Plan was updated [the next day] with the additional interventions to place fall mats at the bedside.”
However, when the state investigators observed the resident in their room on July 31, 2017, and again on August 1, 2017, the resident “was lying in his bed with no fall mats at the bedside.” Additionally, observations of the resident’s room on August 1, 2017, revealed that the resident was “lying in bed, the bed was locked in the elevated position, and no fall mats were at the bedside.”
The surveyors interviewed a Registered Nurse (RN) at 3:23 PM who “confirmed the bed was not in the lowest position and there were no fall mats in use.” The Director of Nursing stated that “she expected fall prevention interventions to be followed.”
The facility “failed to ensure measures to prevent the potential spread of infection were followed when [two biohazard storage rooms – 400 Hall and 500 Hall] were observed and had soiled gloves lying on the floor.” Additionally, a Registered Nurse (RN) was observed “during medication administration [who] failed to properly perform hand hygiene.”
