  • Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date August 30, 2019
  • The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to provide adequate supervision for [one resident] to prevent harm for [two other residents] when the resident allegedly had physical contact with [the first resident]. This failure had the potential of other residents being harmed.”

    The aggressive resident was being treated for mania and receiving medications that affect “the mind, motions, and behavior.” The resident was being treated for “hitting and pacing.”

    The facility Administrator stated that the resident “had been moved to a different station, away from the residents who knew him. The other residents who knew him would see him and were cautious.” One of the residents assaulted by the injured patient stated that the patient “had punched me in the right upper arm. She stated he had pulled her ponytail and previously hit her.” The injured resident stated that “I am afraid of him, he’s still loose.”

    The injured resident stated that “the facility would have a coffee social in the dining room in the mornings and [the aggressive resident] would always be there, and she likes to go to the dining room for the activities too, but was afraid of him.” The investigators interviewed the aggressive resident who said through an interpreter “he would go to the coffee socials.”

    A facility sitter stated that “she was walking in the hall with [the aggressive resident] on August 26, 2019 when they passed [the other assaulted resident] sitting in his wheelchair in the hall.” The sitter stated that “the [second injured resident] gave the [aggressive resident] a look, indicated by her head lowered a little bit and eyebrow slightly down (furrowed), to which [the aggressive resident] put up his fists in a gesture.”

    The facility sitter said that “after he did something wrong, she would correct him, not before to stop him” from causing injury and fear in other residents.

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
