Orlando Florida Nursing Home Abuse AttorneysOur Orlando nursing home abuse lawyers have noticed a significant increase in civil and criminal cases that involve neglect, mistreatment or abuse occurring in nursing facilities throughout Central Florida. Sadly, there are likely hundreds of cases in the area that go unreported because they were never detected, or the resident was too fearful to file a report.

The federal government through Medicare collects information every month on all nursing facilities in Orlando based on data gathered through investigations, surveys and inspections. The patient-protecting agency states found serious violations and deficiencies at seven (15%) of the 48 Orlando nursing homes that led to resident harm. Was your loved one was injured, mistreated, abused, or died unexpectedly from neglect while living in a nursing home in Orlando. If so, we encourage you to contact Orlando nursing home abuse the lawyers at Nursing Home Law Center (800-926-7565) today to schedule a free case review to discuss a financial compensation claim to recover your damages.

More than 35,000 out of the nearly 250,000 residents living within the Orlando city limits our senior citizens. That number nearly doubles when including the Orlando Metropolitan area from Winter Springs to Kissimmee. Many of these retirees moved to the Sunshine State to get away from harsh winter weather and enjoy the scenic beauty throughout Central Florida.

Unfortunately, the increasing population of elderly citizens throughout the Orlando area has escalated the demand for more beds in assisted-living facilities, nursing homes and rehabilitation centers in the community. As a result, many nursing facilities have taken drastic steps to find the additional nursing staff required to maintain their overcrowded conditions. Unfortunately, there are only limited numbers of registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and certified nursing assistants in the Orlando area available to fill these much-needed medical job positions. The number of nursing homes that are understaffed directly correlates with the increased number of cases involving abuse and neglect that cause significant harm, damage or injuries to residents.

Primary Concerns –

Failure to Provide Care for a Resident That Keeps or Builds Their Dignity and Respect of Individuality

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 10/16/2014, a notation was made by a state surveyor during an annual licensure and certification survey involving the facility’s failure to “treat a resident with Alzheimer’s dementia with dignity and respect for the resident refuse care.” This deficient practice involved one resident the facility that “due to this failure, the resident sustained [an injury].”

During an observation by the state surveyor on 10/14/2014 at 11:07 AM, the resident “was heard yelling, the room to the resident store was closed, but the resident could be heard from the common area outside her room. After staff person in the room granted permission to enter, observation revealed [the resident] was the only resident in the room. She was yelling, get out. She was attempting to kick, bite and hit two [CNAs (certified nursing assistants)]. The resident continued to tell the CNAs to get out of there, but they do not stop care and/or step away from the resident. [1 CNA] was holding both the resident’s hands tightly in the resident was trying to break free of her grip. [The other CNA] was attempting to button the resident shirt and the resident continued to yell and attempt to bite, kick and hit the CNAs.”

The state surveyor continued to observe that both CNAs did not stop attempting to provide care despite the residents repeated request for them to get out in the resident’s attempt to kick, hit and bite them. The resident was visibly distressed. Both CNAs began to laugh at the resident as she [the resident] continue to try to bite them and kick them. When asked why they were continuing to ignore the resident’s request to stop, they said they continued because the resident was soiled with bowel movement and they had a cleaner. They said she would then not let them dress or so they held her hand so she could not hit them.”

Our Orlando nursing home attorneys recognize that any ferry to maintain a resident’s dignity and respect when providing care might be considered mistreatment or negligence. Every human being has the right to be respected for their individuality including those residing in nursing facilities in Florida.

Failure to Provide an Environment Free of Accident Hazards

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 07/31/2015, a notation was made during an annual licensure and certification survey by a state investigator concerning the facility’s failure to “provide supervision with smoking to prevent accidents [for a resident at the facility who smokes].”

The deficient practice was noted in part by a resident admitted to the facility with a history of cerebrovascular disease, depression, diabetes, atrial fibrillation, anxiety and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The state surveyor noted an observation with the resident on 07/28/2015 at 5:30 PM in the smoking area with “cigarette burn holes” in his shirt. “After the resident finished smoking he flicked the lit end of the cigarette into the dry brushes/shrubs behind him. No staff were observed in the smoking area at the time.”

The surveyor reviewed the facility’s 07/23/2015 safe smoking evaluation done on the resident that indicated “the resident smoked safely, does not allow ashes or lit material to fall while smoking, does not endanger self while smoking, gets ashes into the ashtray, able to extinguish cigarette safely and completely when finished. The resident was determined to be a safe smoker and his own responsible party.” Not providing adequate supervision when a resident the smoking places their lives and the lives of others at risk.

Failure to Provide Necessary Care and Services to Ensure the Resident Maintains Their Highest Well-Being

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 06/10/2015, a complaint investigation was opened against the facility for its failure to “ensure pain medication was given in a timely manner after fall, sustaining an acute right femoral fracture with complete displacement.” The complaint investigation was initiated after noting a failure “to provide pain medication caused actual harm after the resident presented signs and symptoms of grimacing and guarding the right side of her body after the fall. The resident was not provided pain medication for over seven hours after the fall was signs of discomfort. The x-ray report revealed a fracture.

Failing to provide minimum standards of care to a resident in a nursing home directly violates state and federal regulations and does not follow acceptable policies and protocols adopted by the facility. Our Orlando-Kissimmee nursing home abuse attorneys recognize that this deficient practice might be considered abuse or mistreatment of the resident.

Failure to Implement and Follow Policies to Prevent Abuse, Neglect and Mistreatment

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 03/19/2015, a state surveyor made a notation during an annual licensure and certification survey concerning the facility’s failure to “report an allegation of abuse [… and failure] to implement the facility policy of abuse.” This deficient practice affected one resident directly.”

The 03/17/2015, 10:13 AM incident involved a resident who required a translator indicating that a CNA on the 11 PM-7 AM shift “did not treat her well the second week she was in the facility. [The resident] said she was told to urinate in bed by the CNA. The resident did not know the CNA’s name. She said she went to the bathroom on her own and the CNA class on the resident went into the bathroom. [The resident] said she felt like she was being treated like a child. She said the CNA grabbed her and was rough with her. She said she told the CNA not to treat me like that. The resident then told the [allegedly abusive CNA] who told her not to worry, she would take care of her.”

“The resident indicated that the nurse told her that the social worker would come to speak to her, but the social worker never came.”

Our Orlando/Kissimmee nursing home abuse attorneys recognize that this deficient behavior directly violates the facilities 11/30/2014 Abuse Policy and Procedures that says “any employee who witnesses or has knowledge of an act of abuse to a resident is obligated to report such information to the clinical nurse in charge, DCS and Executive Director. The incident of alleged abuse that harmed a resident and the facility’s failure to report an allegation of abuse might both be considered acts of negligence by the nursing staff and administration.

Primary Concerns –

Failure to Revise the Fall Care Plan with Individualized Interventions and Provide Adequate Supervision Prior to or After a Resident Fell Sustaining a Left Femoral Fracture

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 07/13/2015, a complaint investigation was opened against the facility for its failure to “revise the fall care plan with individualized interventions [for a resident] reviewed for falls.” The deficient practice includes the facility’s failure “to include individualized interventions in the plan of care for fall prevention that resulted in actual harm [where] the resident sustained [a serious injury].”

The complaint investigation was initiated after review of a resident’s 01/07/2015 care plan “for risk for falls and injuries related to weakness, confusion, use of medication, need for assistance, urinary tract infection, altered mental status, subdermal hemorrhage and history of falls.” The ultimate goal of the resident’s care plan was to minimize or eliminate the potential risk of the resident falling.”

However, the facilities occurrence notes for residents falling in the facility documented that this resident “sustained her first fall [after the revision of her care plan] on 02/15/2015 at 7:30 PM while in her room.” The document states that “she was found in her room scooting on the floor between her bed and her roommate’s bed. The note indicated the resident was placed under staff supervision on one-on-one and 15 minute checks.” The resident’s “fall care plan listed an intervention for every 15 minute checks for 72 hours and medication review [the next day].”

Unfortunately, “while still on every 15 minute checks for 72 hours and one-on-one supervision, [the resident] sustained her second fall on 02/16/2015 at 12:20 PM, during the lunch meal in wing to dining room.” A review of the nursing progress notes on the resident indicated that a “calling card for changing condition dated 05/26/2015 3:02 AM, 16 hours after the sixth fall, revealed an x-ray was completed and the [resident] had a left femoral fracture due to her fall on 05/25/2015 at 8:40 AM.”

Our Orlando Florida nursing home abuse attorneys recognize that a failure to provide adequate supervision and/or revise a resident’s care plan might be considered negligence or mistreatment of the resident. Additionally, the deficient practice directly violates state and federal regulations and does not follow the established policies adopted by Metro West Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

Failure to Follow Established Protocols to Prevent the Spread of Infection throughout the Facility

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 05/11/2015, a notation was made during an annual licensure and certification survey by a state investigator concerning the facility’s failure to “ensure proper infection controls during wound care for [a resident at the facility] and failure to use contact precautions for [2 residents].” The deficient practice was noted after an observation of wound care conducted at 10:30 AM on 05/11/2015. A nurse in the facility and the unit manager provided wound care on a resident at the facility. “The nurse washed her hands and donned a pair of gloves. She removed the soil dressing. The dressing did not have at any odor. There was a small amount of serous drainage on the dressing which was a red paint color. [The nurse] then discarded her gloves and then continued the dressing change but did not done any gloves. She then washed the area with normal saline impact the wound was wet dressing with her bare hands. Then she covered the wound [with dressing] and secured with tape. She did not use any gloves while she had direct contact with the wound.”

The state investigator conducted an interview with the attending nurse “immediately after the dressing change. At that time, she was informed that she did not wear any gloves during the dressing procedure. This finding was verified by the unit manager and Assistant Director of Nursing who were both present during the wound care procedure “providing direct care, turning and repositioning, and wound care did not use any personal protective equipment (PPE).”

Our Orlando Florida nursing home neglect attorneys understand that any spread of infection throughout the facility could jeopardize the health and well-being of every resident. We also understand that the deficient practice might be considered negligence or mistreatment by caregivers at the facility.

Primary Concerns –

Failure to Provide an Environment Free of Accident Hazards

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 08/06/2015, a state surveyor made a notation during an annual licensure and certification survey concerning the facility’s failure to “prevent injury while providing activities of daily living (ADL) care for [the resident].” The deficient practice was noted after an observation of a resident “noted with facial hair which was not trimmed to the neck and face but there was an area to the right side of the chin that had been shaved. There was a cut noted just under the right side of the chin which measured 1.5 centimeters long and was dark red in color. [The resident] also had a large cut to the left side of his chin measuring 4.5 centimeters by 0.5 centimeters long with dried blood on it.”

When the large cuts were shown to the unit manager a few minutes later, “she said she was not aware of them. When she touched the affected areas, the resident winced and moved his face. She stated it looked like it happened during shaving as only the chin had been shaved but the rest the face at facial hair. When she asked the resident what happened to his face, [he] made motion of the shaving with his hand.” The unit manager then asked “if the cut happen during shaving, he nodded his head but was unable to say when it happened.” The unit manager noted that the “resident is dependent upon staff for all of his grooming and hygiene care. She stated that the [CNA] on the day shift would have shaved him.”

Our Orlando elder abuse attorneys recognize that providing a substandard level of care involve the lack of supervision that directly harms the resident might be considered mistreatment or neglect. In addition, the deficient practice that cause direct harm to the resident does not follow established procedures and protocols adopted by the facility and directly violates rules and regulations enforced by state and federal regulatory agencies.

Failure to Provide Adequate Treatment to Prevent an Existing Bedsore to Degrade to a Life-Threatening Condition

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 06/08/2015, a complaint investigation was opened against the facility for its failure to “obtain treatment orders for wound care for [a resident] reviewed for pressure ulcers.” The complaint investigation was initiated because of the facility’s deficient practice cause actual harm to the right heel of a resident.

The resident’s right heel the condition of the resident’s wound declined to an unstageable wound with purulent drainage that required debridement [the cutting away of dead tissue].” The investigator conducted an interview with a staff nurse and the Assistant Director of Nursing at 1:30 PM on 06/08/2015 when they “indicated that the treatment orders were not obtained until 05/30/2015.” This means that for 10 days after the resident’s admission on 05/20/2015 until 05/30/2015 “there was no treatment provided for the identify pressure ulcers in the lower extremities. By 06/05/2015, “the wound on the right heel progress to become unstageable and had purulent drainage.”

Our Orlando nursing home neglect attorneys recognize that any failure to provide adequate standards of care to prevent and identify pressure ulcer from becoming unstageable with purulent drainage might be considered negligence or mistreatment of the resident.

Primary Concerns –

Failure to Follow Protocol to Ensure That Every Resident Entering the Facility with a Catheter Continues Its Use Only When Necessary

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 02/20/2015, a notation was made during an annual licensure and certification survey by a state investigator concerning the facility’s failure to “justify the use of an indwelling urinary catheter for [a resident at the facility] with a urinary catheter.” The deficient practice was noted after an observation and review of a resident’s records indicating that “the resident was admitted to the facility from the hospital with an indwelling catheter.” The resident has “a history of dementia, urinary tract infections, contractures of hands, diabetes mellitus, and [other medical conditions].”

However, a review of the resident’s records indicated that there “was no physician order” and the physician’s 11/24/2014 note “read that the resident had a urinary catheter secondary to [a redacted medical condition]. There was no catheter assessment found in the clinical record.” During a 02/20/2015 interview, the facility’s Director of Nursing “stated that she could not find a physician’s order or medical [redacted diagnosis]. She said that when the resident was admitted with an indwelling urinary catheter, the physician is contacted, and orders are obtained to start discontinuing the catheter if there is no justifiable reason to continue it. When asked if this was done for [this resident] she said she was unable to find any documentation.

Additionally, the state investigator noted during a 2 PM 02/20/2015 observation of the resident’s catheter tubing that it “revealed cloudy, dark colored fluid in the tubing the sediment inside the tubing.”

Failing to follow protocols to ensure that every resident entering a nursing home with a catheter does not continue the catheter use unless necessary could be considered negligence by the nursing staff, admitting physician, administration, nursing supervisors and others at the facility. In addition, the deficient practice directly violates both federal and state regulations and does not follow the established procedures and protocols that were adopted by Consulate Health Care of Kissimmee.

Failure to Follow the Resident’s Plan of Care That Caused an Error by Giving a Resident a Medication outside of Their Physician’s Orders

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 11/18/2015, a state surveyor made a notation during an annual licensure and certification survey concerning the facility’s failure to “follow physician’s orders.” The deficient practice was noted after a review of a resident’s records indicating that a medication prescribed was transcribed incorrectly. “Instead of it being transcribed on an as-needed basis, it was scheduled to be given every night at 9 PM.” The facility’s MAR records verify that the medication “had been given to the resident every night at 9 PM rather than as needed (PRN) from 10/18/2014 until [the date of the survey] 11/18/2015.

The surveyor interviewed the facility’s Director of Nursing at 10:30 AM on 11/18/2015 where the director “confirmed that [the medication prescribed to the resident] was written in error on the MAR and the resident had continued to receive [that medication] daily in air since 10/18/2014. The surveyor conducted a 09/18/2015 telephone interview with the consultant pharmacist at the facility who was “asked how this error had continued for almost 11 months and stated that it was a mistake, we missed it.”

Our Orlando/Kissimmee nursing home abuse attorneys know that a failure to follow the resident’s written plan of care and prescribed medications in error for over 11 months might be considered mistreatment or negligence. In addition, the deficient practice does not follow the established protocols and procedures for documenting and administering medications, and directly violates both state and federal regulations.

Failure to Follow the Resident’s Written Plan of Care and Document Serious Changes in the Resident’s Condition

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 02/12/2015, a notation was made by a state surveyor during an annual licensure and certification survey involving the facility’s failure to “ensure that bruising was identified by direct care staff in accordance with resident’s written plan of care for [2 residents at the facility] review for non-pressure skin conditions.” The deficient practice was noted after review of the cognitively impaired resident’s records indicated that “she is at risk for skin breakdown of interventions to monitor skin condition with care daily to report abnormalities. She had a care plan for Aspen therapy with intervention to report bruising.”

The state surveyor conducted a 02/10/2015 8:53 AM observation that revealed “the resident had multiple round purple bruises on her right upper arm in a large purple bruise on her left hand.” An additional observation on the same day at 4:17 PM revealed “a purple bruise on her right hand between the thumb and the first finger and a purple bruise on the top of her right middle finger.

The surveyor’s review of the facility’s skin worksheets dated1/29/15, 2/02/15, 2/05/15 and 2/09/15 revealed that there were no documentations of the resident’s bruises. Additionally, the Nurses Notes at the facility dated between 11/03/2014 through 02/11/2015 “revealed no documentation of [the resident] having bruises on her hands.” The Director of Nursing “confirmed that the resident should have had a scheduled body audit [… and] stated no weekly audits have been done.”

Failing to provide the basic standards of care established by state and federal regulatory agencies and accepted by the facility under their procedures and policies might be considered mistreatment or neglect of the resident.

Failure to Provide Adequate Standards of Care and Equipment to Assist a Resident with Contractures and Limited Range of Motion

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 12/03/2015, a state surveyor made a notation during an annual licensure and certification survey concerning the facility’s failure to “provide treatment and services for [the resident] with contractures [and limited range of motion].” The deficient practice was noted after an observation of a resident at the facility admitted “with a history of end-stage [redacted medical conditions], heart failure, contractures of the right foot, ankle, hand, dementia, stroke to the right side, type II diabetes and chronic pain.”

The surveyor observed the resident “in the garden lounge visiting her daughter. Her nails to her right hand were digging into the palm of her right hand which was contracted forming a tight fist. Her right ankle was digging into the metal knob on the foot rest. The resident was wearing non-skid socks to both feet. The resident’s daughter stated that the resident needed the right hand splint and boots, but the staff were not applying them. No boots or splints noted to the resident’s right hand or feet.”

The state surveyor conducted a 12/03/2015 interview with the facility’s physical therapist who stated “that the resident should have boots on to prevent skin breakdown, further contractures, and for proper positioning to prevent bone condition such as pathologic fractures.” The physical therapist said “the resident should have some sort of splint on the right hand. The splint is not comfortable we can always find splint that will be more comfortable for the hand and arm.”

Our Orlando-Maitland Florida elder abuse attorneys recognize that any failure to provide residents necessary treatments and services to increase their range of motion diminishes their quality of life and might be considered negligence or mistreatment.

Stopping Abuse and Neglect in Nursing Facilities

Abuse or neglect occurring to a loved one is a disturbing thought, the families who face the uphill battle of ensuring their spouse, parent or grandparent is receiving quality care in a nursing facility. This is because residents in nursing facilities are often society’s most vulnerable individuals who do not have the ability to protect themselves or defend themselves against others who would cause them harm. Unfortunately, cases involving neglect and abuse occurring in nursing homes throughout Florida is a serious problem. However, there are steps that families can take if they suspect their loved one has been abused or neglected.

It is crucial to understand the common signs and symptoms involved in abuse and neglect occurring in a nursing home. The most common signs involve:

  • Sudden weight loss
  • Bedsores
  • Unexplained bruising, broken bones or fractures
  • Residents who are over sedated or overmedicated
  • Any mark on the hands or arms that could be a sign of physical restraint
  • Malnutrition or dehydration
  • Visibly angry or depressed residents
  • Elderly individuals blaming or shaming themselves over an insignificant issue
  • Any display of intense fear or quiet apprehension when around caregivers or other residents

If your loved one displays any of the signs above, it is imperative take immediate action and contact the personal injury attorney who specializes in nursing home abuse and neglect cases.

Hiring a Lawyer

Filing a lawsuit or claim for compensation against the nursing home is often complicated and requires an extensive comprehension of Florida tort law.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa

After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
