These penalties include monetary fines and denial of payment for Medicare services. High monetary fines usually indicate extremely severe violations that harmed or could have harmed residents.
Within the last three years, Medicare denied payment on January 30, 2019, due to a lack of quality care. The nursing home received four complaints over the last three years that resulted in a violation citation.

- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date October 7, 2015
- Failure to Ensure That Every Resident’s Drug Regimen Is Free from Unnecessary Medications – citation #F757 date May 10, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “did not ensure that the resident environment remained as free of accident hazards as was possible. Specifically, the Library Room was observed to contain cabinets that were not secure to the wall, thus allowing them to be potentially pulled down on top of a resident.”
The surveyors noted that “the cabinets were observed to contain hospital gowns and blankets.” A Registered Nurse (RN) at the facility stated during an interview that “the cabinets contained clean linens for staff and residents to use.” The Registered Nurse “further stated that the facility residents were able to retrieve linens, if needed, from the cabinets.”
The facility “did not ensure that the resident’s drug regimen was free from unnecessary drugs. An unnecessary drug is any drug when used in excessive dose; or for excessive duration; or without adequate monitoring; or without adequate indication for its use; or in the presence of adverse consequences, which indicate the dose should be reduced or discontinued; or any combination of the reasons above.”
Specifically, “one resident was administered medication to treat high blood pressure when blood pressure was below parameters set by the Physician. A second resident was not administered medication to treat low blood pressure when their blood pressure was low.”
The state investigators noted that “no documentation could be located in the medical records show that [a resident] receives prescribed medications. The prescribing nurse practitioner ordered the continuation [of their prescription medication on two separate occasions].”
The Director of Nursing and Corporate Resource Nurse stated during an interview that “nurses should have administered [the medications] as ordered.”
