St George Utah Nursing Home Safety Concerns Two Stars Rating

To be fully informed on the level of care nursing homes provide, families routinely research Medicare.gov and the Utah Department of Public Health website database systems for a complete list of deficiencies, violations, and citations.

According to Medicare, this facility maintains an overall rating of two out of five stars, including two out of five stars concerning health inspections, three out of five stars for staffing issues and four out of five stars for quality measures.

  • Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date March 8, 2018
  • The state investigators determined that the nursing home “did not ensure the resident environment remain as free of accident hazards as is possible, and each resident receives adequate supervision and assistance devices to prevent accidents.” As a result of the deficient practice by the nursing staff, one resident sustained an injury.

    The state investigators interviewed the resident involved in the investigation on the morning of March 6, 2018. The resident “was observed to have a bruise on her left temple.” The resident stated that “she fell out of her wheelchair, reaching for an item on the floor.”

    The resident further stated that “she had multiple falls in the facility.” The investigators reviewed the resident’s medical records, including the facility Incident Reports for falls. One documentation dated June 11, 2017, indicated the resident “was found on the floor in her room. [The resident] stated she was holding onto the footboard of the bed [and] felt dizzy, so she slipped to the floor.” The facility initiated an investigation, notified the Physician and family, and performed a neurological assessment.

    Later that same day at 4:20 PM, the resident was again “found on the floor. [The resident] stated she slipped out of her wheelchair and did not injure herself.” Immediate actions taken by the facility were to assist the resident back to the wheelchair, take vital signs, and complete a neurological assessment.

    On August 24, 2017, just before dinner time, “[the resident] had an unwitnessed fall in the bathroom. [The resident] stated that she did not hit her head and has no pain from the fall.” The resident indicated that “she was trying to get up from the bathroom.”

    On September 18, 2017, during the midafternoon, the resident was “on the floor in front of the toilet. [The resident] states she was transferring from the toilet to the wheelchair and she hit her left forehead.”

    Another incident was documented on December 16, 2017, when the resident “was on the floor on her right side in front of her wheelchair. [The resident] stated [that she just] slipped out of her chair.”

    On December 24, 2017, at 2:00 AM, the resident “was found on the floor. She was lying on her right side next to her wheelchair by the bathroom door. She said she fell on her left side and rolled over to her right side to relieve the pain. [The resident] stated she was trying to get to the bathroom.”

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
