  • Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date April 2, 2019
  • The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to implement policies to protect residents and staff from abuse, when [one resident’s] aggressive behaviors were not immediately addressed, reported, and investigated. These failures increased the risk of harm for all facility residents and staff and allowed [the aggressive resident] to physically abuse another resident and staff.”

    As a result, the state investigators made an unannounced visit “to the facility for the investigation of three anonymously linked complaints regarding [the aggressive resident].”

    The state investigators observed the resident “sitting up at the bedside while alert, dressed, and mumbling.” The resident “did not acknowledge the staff or surveyor in the room.” The resident’s roommate was “lying in bed next to the door with a confused look on her face.” The aggressive resident’s “other roommate was observed to be alert and quiet, sitting up in a chair next to the farthest bed in the room.” There was a Certified Nursing Assistant “sitting in a chair at the foot of the [aggressive resident’s] bed.”

    The CNA in the room stated that the resident “could verbalize and walk and frequently refused or spit out her medications.” The CNA said that the aggressive resident “was moved to this room recently after an altercation with another resident.”

    A Licensed Vocational Nurse stated that “she was assigned to care for [all three residents and said that the aggressive resident] was on multiple medications for her behaviors, frequently refused them, and has struck and bitten staff in the past.”

    A review of the aggressive resident’s Medical Records indicated that the staff is to “monitor episodes of scratching/biting every shift.” The staff is also to “monitor episodes of delusions every shift.” The staff is to provide one-on-one supervision “due to the physical aggression toward others and rummaging through other residents’ belongings.”

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
