Park Manor Health and Rehabilitation Canter
Many of the problems associated with mistreatment occurring in assisted-living facilities in nursing homes are the result of a lack of trained personnel, minimal supervision, or understaffing. In these incidents, the needs of the residents are often ignored; they suffer serious injuries from a fall or develop life-threatening bedsores. Other residents wander away from the facility due to a lack of supervision, as mentioned in the citation below.

The state investigators determined that the nursing home failed to ensure a resident’s “nebulizer mask was stored, covered on two of two days of the survey, and the laundry staff applied Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) [before] handling dirty linen on June 1, 2017. These deficient practices “affected [one resident] observed with a nebulizer machine and had the potential to affect 133 residents utilizing linen at the facility.”
The facility “failed to ensure licensed staff did not follow protocol and without gloves [and] without washing her hands, returned to the medication cart to prepare the resident’s medication.”
The nursing home also failed to ensure that “a licensed staff did not drop a tablet on the medication cart, then pick up the tablet with her bare hands and place it on a pill splitter. She further failed to wash her hands when leaving [the resident’s] room and returned to the medication cart.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure measures were implemented to provide effective pest control and prevent the spread to other rooms after the identification of bed bugs [in one room] on May 9, 2019.” Two residents who reside in Room Number One were “taken into another room on Station 2 [before] receiving a shower on May 9, 2019.”
Further, the clothing and other items from both residents “were not removed from [the second room] after bed bugs were also discovered in that room.” Further, the second room “was not cleaned and vacuumed as outlined in the facility’s Quality Assurance Committee Action and Bed Bugs Policy.”
The deficient practice by the nursing staff and administration affected four residents, “sampled for bed bugs.” The document shows that “bed bugs were identified in six of eighty-one total resident rooms in the facility, as well as in the common areas, including the day room and dining room.”
