The state of California and the federal government have a legal responsibility for monitoring every nursing home. 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.
The nursing home received five complaints over the last three years that resulted in a violation citation. Additional information concerning the facility can be reviewed on the comprehensive California Department of Social Services Adult Protective Services Website.

- Failure to Remedy Past Noncompliance – citation #F698 date February 7, 2019
- Failure to Ensure That Every Resident’s Drug Regimen Is Free from Unnecessary Medications – citation #F757 date June 13, 2019
- Failure to Ensure Menus Meet the Resident’s Nutritional Needs and That There Is a Prepared Menu by Which Nutritious Meals Have Been Plan for the Resident – citation ##F363 date March 15, 2017
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure [two resident’s medical treatments] were assessed and monitored for complications daily, when Licensed Nurses did not assess and monitor [both resident’s medical treatments], which were not monitored for infection, bleeding, and swelling.” For both of these residents, “this failure had the potential to result in delayed early medical intervention.”
The “facility failed to ensure [two residents] did not receive unnecessary medications.” In one incident, one resident received seventeen doses of unnecessary medication and the other resident received ten doses. For both of these residents, “these failures had the potential to result in adverse effects from the use of unnecessary medications.”
The “facility failed to follow the menu when ingredients were not measured, and instant mashed potatoes were served for purée diets and an apple topping was not provided for breakfast. This failure had the potential to serve meals that did not meet the nutritional needs of the resident and to result in nutrition-related illness or disease” for twenty-seven residents who “received food from the kitchen.”
The state survey team observed and interviewed a Cook preparing scalloped potatoes. The Cook “added salt, onion powder, and black pepper. She reported all of these ingredients [went] directly from the container they were stored in and into the pan without measuring them. She stated she used a little [of each] when she added seasoning. She then prepared instant mashed potatoes [by adding] water, salt, garlic powder, and margarine into the potato flakes. No other ingredients were added. She did not measure the ingredients she added to the potato flakes.”
The Cook indicated that “the instant mashed potatoes were for purée diets.” The Dietary Specialist stated, “instant mashed potatoes were commonly served for purée diets instead of regular potatoes because the puréed diet should have gotten scalloped potatoes, not instant potatoes.” The specials also stated that “recipes should be followed and ingredients should be measured, but [the Cook] has been doing this (preparing meals) for a while, so that is why (she didn’t measure ingredients).”
