North Carolina and the federal government have a legal responsibility of monitoring every nursing home in the state. These agencies have the authority to impose monetary penalties or hold payment from Medicare if the nursing facility has violated rules and regulations. Typically, the more serious the violation, the higher the monetary fines, especially if neglect or abuse caused harm or could have caused harm to a resident.
Within the last thirty-six months, investigators imposed four monetary penalties against Raleigh Rehabilitation Center, citing substandard care. These penalties include a $8,394 fine on June 05, 2018, a $13,845 fine on June 05, 2018, a $9,945 fine on December 20, 2017, and a $2,800 fine on June 22, 2017, for a total of $34,984.

- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date June 22, 2017
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure a resident’s safety by not correctly positioning the resident [before] turning.” The deficient practice by the nursing staff “resulted in the resident falling off the bed , sustaining a laceration to the forehead and a small subdermal hematoma.”
This investigation involved a resident who “requires extensive assistance for turning and positioning in bed.” The resident’s Care Area Assessment for Falls revealed the resident “had advanced Alzheimer’s disease, was non-ambulatory, and did not attempt to transfer without staff support.”
A Nursing Progress Note revealed that “the nurse was called to the room of [the resident] around 4:00 AM by a Nursing Assistant, who stated that the resident had fallen out of bed.” The nurse witnessed the resident “lying face down beside her bed, on the floor,” when entering the room. There was bleeding noted from the resident’s forehead.
The staff took vital signs, administered first-aid and called 911. Emergency Medical Services (EMS) transported the resident to the hospital by ambulance.
The following day, the staff revised the resident’s Care Plan and noted that “the resident was at risk for falls related to overall weakness, severely impaired cognition/communication, poor balance, poor postural control, non-ambulatory status and an overall decline of physical mobility status.”
Other documentation shows that the resident had a CT scan that revealed “small subdural and subarachnoid bleeding and was her baseline neurological status.” Neurosurgery had seen the resident and “no surgical intervention was indicated.”
The Director of Nursing and Administrator stated they had a new plan of correction in place after determining the root cause of analysis for the resident’s fall. The Administrator noted that the Nursing Assistant “did not pull the resident to the center of the bed [before] turning, the resident was too close to the edge of the bed , and the resident fell off the bed.”
