legal resources necessary to hold negligent facilities accountable.
The Shores Post-Acute Nursing Facility
Many of the problems associated with mistreatment occurring in nursing homes and assisted living facilities 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.

- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date October 5, 2018
- Failure to Provide Appropriate Care for Residents Who Are Incontinent of Bowel and Bladder to Prevent Urinary Tract Infections – citation #F690 date May 24, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to test the alarmed exit gate located in the back-yard patio. This failure had the potential for residents to elope [wander away] without the staff being aware, increasing the risk for harm and injury to the residents.”
The surveyors and the Director of Nursing conducted an observation and “pushed the alarmed gate in the back-yard patio to test if the alarm was sound. The Director stated once the gate was opened, a loud alarm sound should be heard at the nurse’s station.”
The Director of Nursing “remained standing in front of the gate and there was no audible alarm sound.” Also, “there was no staff who came out to check who pushed the gate open.” The Director stated that “if there was an alarm heard, staff would come out and immediately check the area.”
The “facility failed to provide interventions in managing urinary and bowel incontinence for [three residents, who] were not provided services to help restore continence to the extent possible.” In one incident, a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) stated that a resident “used incontinent briefs for bowel and bladder [saying that the resident] was not on a bladder/bowel training program.”
A Licensed Nurse reviewed the resident’s bowel and bladder assessments between September 2018 and March 2019. The documentation indicated that the resident “was a good candidate for retraining.” However, the resident “was not placed on the retraining program and should have been.”
The MDS Coordinator stated that “we are not good in our bowel and bladder program.” The Director of Nursing said that “the facility had no bladder and bowel program [and acknowledged that the resident] should have been placed on a bladder and bowel retraining program.”
