Financial Penalties and Violations
Federal and state investigators can penalize any nursing home that has violated rules and regulations that resulted in harm or could have resulted in the harm of a resident. These penalties include imposing monetary fines and denying payment for Medicare services.
Over the last three years, Medicare denied payment on two occasions, including on October 29, 2018, and April 23, 2018, due to a lack of quality care. This nursing facility received seven complaints and self-reported three serious issues over the last three years that resulted in violation citations.
Additional information concerning the facility can be reviewed on the State of Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services Website.

The “facility failed to evaluate a seat belt as a restraint for [one resident].” The investigative team reviewed the facility’s policy dated July 2007 title: Physical Restraints that read in part:
“It is the policy of this facility to only use physical restraints as a last resort, and in the least restrictive manner, when it is considered medically necessary.”
The investigative team observed a resident on the morning of August 21, 2017, while the resident was “in a tilt-back wheelchair in front of the television, with a seat belt device loosely around the waist in a locked position and an alarm box connected [and] hanging on the back of the wheelchair.”
The resident “was leaning to the right with no support to the head with his eyes closed and feet dangling off the floor.” The surveyors interviewed the resident later that morning “while sitting in a tilt wheelchair with a seatbelt device in a locked position, and a greater than one hand width gap between the waist and the belt.
The resident was “asked to demonstrate how to remove the seat belt device.” The resident “revealed spastic movements of the right arm and [with a] hand toward the seatbelt device was unable to self-remove the seat belt.”
A Nursing Assistant prompted and questioned the resident asking them to perform a release of the seatbelt. At that time, the resident “was unable to be prompted or cued to demonstrate the self-release of the device.
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to evaluate nutritional requirements for pressure ulcer healing, [and] failed to evaluate causal factors for the development of a pressure ulcer.” The nursing home also “failed to evaluate the condition of a pressure ulcer for [one resident].”
