Toledo Ohio Nursing Home Abuse LawyerWith a total population of more than 284,000 residents, Toledo Ohio is home to more than 34,000 senior citizens. The number of elderly individuals within the Toledo city limits more than double when adding the number of retirees living in the suburbs of Toledo, along the shores of Lake Erie and down the Maumee River. The number of seniors entering their retirement years has risen substantially over the last few decades, which has place a significant burden on the number of nursing home beds required in the area. Unfortunately, rising demand for skilled nursing care has also escalated the amount of cases involving elder abuse, neglect and mistreatment.

Medicare releases publicly available information throughout the year on all nursing homes in Toledo, Ohio based on the data collected through investigations, surveys and inspections. According to the federal agency, inspectors found serious violations and deficiencies at seventeen (31%) of these fifty-four Toledo nursing facilities that led to residents suffering preventable injuries.

If so, we invite you to contact the Toledo nursing home abuse attorneys at Nursing Home Law Center (800-926-7565) today to schedule a free case review to discuss a financial compensation claim.

Primary Concerns –

Failure to Provide Residents an Environment Free of Accident Hazards

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 08/28/2015, a state investigator noted a deficient practice during an annual licensure and certification survey concerning the facility’s failure “to store used disposable razors and use of cutaneous needles in a safe manner.” A state investigator noted this deficient practice because it directly affected three residents at the facility “who share a common bathroom.” During an observation on 08/25/2014, the surveyor “revealed a shared bathroom used by [3 residents] contained a red plastic biohazardous container [which held] used disposable razors and used subcutaneous needles. The used disposable razors and used subcutaneous needles were above the container’s recommended fill line and overflowing the lid.”

The deficient practice might be considered substandard care, neglect or mistreatment at the hands of the caregivers and does not follow state and federal regulations nor the policies adopted by the facility.

Primary Concerns –

Failure to Provide a Resident All the Necessary Care to Maintain Their Highest Well-Being

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 12/17/2014, a notation was made by a state investigator during an annual licensure and certification survey concerning the facility’s failure “to assess [resident] in a timely manner when the resident developed bruising, swelling and pain to the right knee.” The deficient practice was noted after reviewing a 08/30/2013 facility policy titled Changes: Position Notification of Resident Change of Condition that indicates “there should be immediate notification and the physician or designee would be informed at the time the event occurs either directly or by beeper. It further revealed the nurse would not hesitate to contact the physician at any time for a resident problem which in their judgement required immediate attention.” The investigator also notes that the evaluation conducted by the facility under its policies “was to include vital signs, mental status, major diagnosis, allergies” and that the staff was also “to document in the nurse’s progress notes all attempts to contact the physician, all attempts to notify the family/leg representative, physician response, physician orders and resident status and response.”

Failure to follow orders that resulted in detriment to the resident might be considered negligence or mistreatment and does not follow state and federal regulations.

Primary Concerns –

Failure to Immediately Notify the State Agency When a Resident Suffers an Injury of Unknown Origin Requiring Hospitalization and Emergency Care

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 04/14/2015, a state investigator noted a deficient practice during an annual licensure and certification survey concerning the facility’s failure “to ensure an injury of unknown origin was reported immediately to the Administrator and the State Agency.” The deficient practice was noted upon observation of a resident “moaning with pain to the left leg. The resident was seen by the nurse practitioner and the new order for an x-ray to the left hip, thigh and knee was received. Review of the x-ray report dated 04/03/2015 at 11:30 PM revealed oblique avulsion fractures of the left greater and lesser trochanters.” The state investigator further reviewed the medical records of the resident which indicated “this was an injury of unknown origin.”

An interview with the facility’s Administrator on 04/09/2015, “revealed the x-ray results were received on 04/04/2015 and she was not notified of the injury of unknown origin until 04/06/2015 and further verified the injury was not reported to the state agency immediately.

This deficient practice violates state and federal regulations and operating a nursing facility and could be considered mistreatment or negligence involving a resident.

Primary Concerns –

Failure to Follow Adopted Policies When Handling Medications to Ensure the Safety of Every Resident at the Facility

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 09/24/2015, a notation was made by a state investigator during an annual licensure and certification survey concerning the facility’s failure ” to ensure medications were properly dated and/or labeled for four of six medication storage areas.” The deficient practice directly affected 12 residents at the facility and does not follow procedures, protocols and policies adopted by the facility including the November 2013 policy titled: Medication Storage that indicates that “the facility shall not use discontinued, outdated, or deteriorated drugs or biologicals. All such drugs shall be returned to the dispensing pharmacy or destroyed per procedure. The policy further indicates some medications (such as insulin) may have specific time frames they may be used after opening, then if not used should be discarded per policy.”

Our Toledo elder abuse attorneys understand that the deficient practice might be considered neglect or mistreatment because it does not follow the facility’s adopted policies and directly violates both state and federal regulations.

Primary Concerns –

Failure to Follow Protocol to Ensure the Efficacy of a Prescribed Medication When Administered to a Resident

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 03/26/2015, a state investigator noted a deficient practice during an annual licensure and certification survey concerning the facility’s failure ” prevent a significant medication error during administration of [a prescribed medication for a resident at the facility requiring insulin].” This deficient practice directly affects 10 identified residents at the facility requiring insulin.

Upon observation, state surveyor notes that the registered nurse on duty on 03/23/2015 prepared to administer the prescribed medication to a resident requiring insulin as ordered. “He applied the needle to the [medication] and set the doses for seven units, without priming the needle. [The resident] injected the insulin into [the resident’s] left upper, posterior arm. He did not hold the needle in place for six seconds after the injection [as required], instead removing the needle instantly after pressing the administration button.”

Our Toledo nursing home abuse lawyers believe that the deficient practice of failing to administer insulin properly as ordered by the manufacturer when administered to the resident could be considered maltreatment or neglect. Additionally, this error directly violates the drug administration policies adopted by the facility and state and federal regulations.

Primary Concerns –

Failure to Ensure That All Employees Working in the Facility Pass a Background Check and Are Free of a History of Abusing, Neglecting or Mistreating Residents

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 07/09/2015, a notation was made during an annual licensure and certification survey by a state investigator concerning the facility’s failure ” to follow their abuse policy by not completing a criminal background check for one [STNA (state tested nurse assistant)].” This deficient practice “had the potential to affect all 77 residents residing in the facility.”

The state surveyor noted during a review of the STNA’s personnel file with a 05/28/2015 hire date that a “background check was not completed for [that STNA]” by the date of the state survey on 07/09/2015. A human resource employee at the facility “stated it slipped her mind to make sure the background check was completed for [that STNA]. Review of the facility abuse policy titled Abuse Protection Policy revise August 2013 revealed all applicants are screened and as required by law, a background check or criminal activity will be ordered from our designated security company.”

This deficient error had the potential of causing harm to every resident in the facility and could be considered negligence on the part of the administration, management and supervisors. In addition, the error of not completing a criminal background check violates state and federal regulations.

Primary Concerns –

Failure to Provide Residents an Environment Free of Accident Hazards

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 09/02/2015, a notation was made during an annual licensure and certification survey by a state investigator concerning the facility’s failure ” to ensure a resident’s pressure alarm was functioning properly to prevent accidents” for a resident who required personal safety alarms. This deficient practice indirectly compromised the safety of 22 residents identified as needing personal safety alarms in the facility and resulted in the harm of a resident who “fell, acquired a closed head injury and a laceration on the forehead, was transferred to the emergency room and required five sutures.”

The deficient practice might be considered negligence at the hands of caregivers, administrators and management at the facility because they did not follow the Genoa Retirement Village 10/19/2007 policy titled Procedure Guidelines Alarm Checks and violated both state and federal regulations. The end result directly harmed a resident at the facility.

Primary Concerns –

Failure to Provide Adequate Monitoring of a Resident to Prevent Their Unsupervised Elopement from the Facility

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 01/09/2015, a state surveyor made a notation during an annual licensure and certification survey concerning the facility’s failure “to provide adequate supervision for a [resident reviewed for elopement].” The facility’s “failure to provide adequate supervision” is a deficient practice that “resulted in Immediate Jeopardy for [… a] cognitively impaired resident with wandering exit seeking behaviors who successfully eloped from the facility without staff knowledge [on] 01/01/2015 at approximately 12:10 PM when [the resident] walked out of the facility with alarm sounding. The staff failed to go outside and check for any residents who may have wandered out of the facility. The facility was not aware that [the resident] was missing until proximally 3:00 PM.”

Our team of reputable Toledo nursing home abuse lawyers know that the deficient practice does not follow facility adopted protocols requiring adequate monitoring of residents at the facility who are known to have an elopement behavior. This failure might be considered negligence or mistreatment of a resident and directly violates both state and federal regulations, rules, protocols and laws.

Primary Concerns –

Failure to Ensure That All Residents Are Consuming a Well-Balanced Nutritional Diet and Failure to Follow Protocols to Ensure Residents Are Maintaining Their Weight

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 10/15/2015, a notation was made during an annual licensure and certification survey by a state investigator concerning the facility’s failure “to obtain a monthly weight, provide ongoing assessments, and provide interventions to prevent significant weight loss for [the resident], and failed to notify the physician and dietitian regarding a significant weight loss for [another resident at the facility].” The deficient practice was noted by the state investigator after an interview with the Facility’s Regional Corporate Registered Nurse on the date of the investigation who “verify there was no documentation the physician or dietitian were notified of [the resident’s] significant weight loss noted on 10/05/2015.”

This deficient practice placed the health and well-being of the resident in jeopardy and directly violates the facility’s July 2002 policy titled: Nutrition at Risk Program that in part indicates “the following criteria shall be used to identify guests at nutritional risk: guest with unplanned weight loss of 7.7% in three months and 10% of weight in six months and any guest showing progressive unplanned weight loss. Guests who have been identified as a nutritional risk shall be listed on the nutritional risk sheet.”

The deficient practice of not following adopted policies at the facility increases the potential harm to residents and could be considered mistreatment or neglect. In addition, not following procedures directly violates state and federal regulations.

Primary Concerns –

Failure to Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent a Resident from Eloping from the Facility without Supervision or Knowledge of the Staff

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 01/16/2015, a complaint investigation against the facility was opened for its failure “to provide adequate supervision for [a resident with elopement behavior patterns].” This deficient practice directly affected one resident at the facility where the failure “to provide adequate supervision resulted in Immediate Jeopardy for a cognitively impaired resident with wandering behaviors who successfully eloped from the facility without staff knowledge. On 01/15/2015 at 4 PM, the [Director of Nursing] was notified that Immediate Jeopardy began on 01/10/2015 at approximately 9:05 AM when [a resident] was left in the first floor dining room without supervision.” Minutes later, the resident “walked out of the facility with alarm sounding and staff failed to go outside and check for any residents who might have wandered out of the facility. [The resident] was found by the police department at approximately 9:55 AM and taken to the hospital for evaluation. The resident was returned to the facility the same day at 5:10 PM.”

This deficient practice directly violates procedures and protocols adopted by the facility along with both state and federal regulations, and could be considered negligence or mistreatment.

Primary Concerns –

Failure to Follow Protocols and Intervene When Maintaining the Safety and Well-Being of Every Resident

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 08/20/2015, a notation was made by a state investigator during an annual licensure and certification survey concerning the facility’s failure “to ensure care plan intervention was in place to prevent resident falls.” This deficient practice directly affected a resident at the facility and indirectly affects 19 other residents at the facility identified with motion sensors. Additionally, the facility failed to provide adequate monitoring of another resident at the facility when assessing for “thrill and bruit as ordered in the care plan.” During an interview with registered nurse on duty, the nurse “confirmed [the resident’s] thrill and bruit were not being monitored as ordered in the care plan” by use of a stethoscope by trained medical staff to determine bruit (a continuous sound during heartbeats) and palpable thrills that typically produce a quick, powerful beat that might suddenly collapse.

These deficient practices might be considered neglect or mistreatment of the resident as does the failure to follow adopted policies and state and federal regulations.

Failure to Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Residents from Eloping without the Staff Being Aware of the Wandering Incident

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 04/08/2015, a complaint investigation was opened against the facility for its failure “to provide adequate supervision for [the resident] identified and reviewed for potential elopement.” This deficient practice “resulted in Immediate Jeopardy for a cognitively impaired resident, identified at risk for elopement, who successfully eloped from the facility without staff knowledge, fell from her wheelchair onto a concrete pad, and suffered a fractured right knee.” In addition, two other residents at the facility “were placed at risk for more than minimum harm that is not immediate jeopardy due to failure the facility to ensure Wander-guard devices were utilized according to physician orders and plans of care, and failure to follow the facility’s policy to complete elopement risk assessments quarterly.”

In the first incident, “the facility was not aware [that the resident] was missing until proximally 6:10 PM, when an unidentified tenant of the neighboring apartment community alerted staff [that that resident] was lying on the ground, next to a wheelchair, near the driveway to the facility.”

These deficient practices of not following protocols and policies at the facility directly violates state and federal laws and could be considered signs of neglect or mistreatment.

Primary Concerns –

Failure to Notify the Resident’s Doctor of a Decline in Their Medical Condition Prior to Being Admitted to the Hospital for Treatment

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 09/01/2015, a complaint investigation against the facility was opened for its failure “to notify the physician of an abnormal urinalysis test for [a resident at the facility].” This deficient practice was noted after 09/01/2015 interview involving the Director of Nursing who “verify the physician was not notified of the abnormal urinalysis results prior to the resident being admitted to the hospital.”

This deficient practice of not following protocol directly violates the facility’s 07/11/2011 policy titled: Notification of Change of Condition that states that “the facility will immediately inform the resident, consult with the resident’s physician and if known, notify the resident’s legal representative when there is a significant change in the resident’s physical, mental or psychosocial status.”

This failure to follow established policy could directly impact the health and well-being of the resident and could be considered a sign of mistreatment or negligence on behalf of caregivers, supervisors, medical staff and/or the administration.

Failure to Provide an Environment Free of Sexual Abuse and Failure to Follow Protocols to Investigate an Allegation of Sexual Abuse in a Timely Manner

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 04/02/2015, a notation was made by a state surveyor during an annual licensure and certification survey involving the facility’s failure “to ensure the abuse policy was implemented when facility staff failed to report an allegation of sexual abuse to administrative staff and investigate the allegation in a timely manner.” This deficient practice of not following protocols directly affected a resident at the facility.

The 04/02/2015 interview with the Alzheimer’s Program Coordinator by the state surveyor “verified she did not report [the resident’s] allegation of sexual abuse to the administrative staff. She further stated she informed staff on the Alzheimer’s unit of the allegation so they could monitor the resident. She verified the allegation of sexual abuse should have been reported to the Administrator of the facility.”

The deficient practice was noted after a 04/01/2015 interview with the Director of Nursing who “verified the incident had not been reported to her or any Administrative staff and therefore had not been investigated or reported to the State Department of Health as required.

Failure to Follow Protocol in Properly Addressing Suicidal Ideation of a Resident at the Facility Who Verbally Announced to Staff Members His Desire to Kill Himself

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 10/07/2015, a notation was made by a state investigator during an annual licensure and certification survey involving the facility’s failure “to address suicidal ideation on the plan of care for [the resident at the facility] reviewed for suicidal ideation.” The deficient practice was noted after a review of the resident’s 06/17/2015 progress notes that revealed “during an assessment by activity staff, the resident stated he wanted a gun to shoot himself. The note indicated the Activity Director asked [the resident] if he had any other ways or plans to kill himself and he stated no. Further review of the progress note revealed the Administrator and Social Services were notified of [the resident] statement.” The facility Administrator “verified the plan of care was not updated to reflect the resident’s suicide ideation.

This deficient practice fails to follow policies and procedures adopted by the facility on how to handle suicidal ideation and could be considered negligence because it violates state and federal regulations.

Primary Concerns –

Failure to Properly Document the Treatment of Existing Pressure Sores That Were Allowed to Progress to a Life Threatening Bedsore

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 01/23/2015, a state surveyor made a notation during an annual licensure and certification survey concerning the facility’s failure “to provide monitoring and treatments as order to pressure ulcers for [3 residents at the facility with bedsores].” This deficient practice by the medical team “resulted in actual harm when [a resident’s] pressure ulcers increased in size and worsen from two Stage II pressure ulcers to one unstageable pressure ulcer.” This deficient practice directly affected one resident and indirectly affected eight other residents in the facility identified with pressure ulcers.

Upon review and interview with the Director of Nursing on 01/23/2015, it was verified that the resident “did have an unstageable foot wound [… and the resident’s] medical record revealed no indication of the foot wound in any way except physician’s orders.” This is in direct violation of the facility’s policy title Wound Care Prevention and Treatment Objectives.

This failure to follow policies caused direct harm to a resident and could be considered mistreatment or negligence. In addition, the failure to follow policies is in direct violation of state and federal regulations.

Primary Concerns –

Failure to Follow Care Plan Interventions When Administering Nutritional Supplements to Aid the Physician in Healing Wounds

In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 07/13/2015, a complaint investigation against the facility was opened for its failure “to implement a care plan intervention to administer a nutritional supplement to aid in wound healing as ordered by a physician.” This deficient practice directly affected a resident and indirectly affected 12 other residents “identified by the facility as receiving nutritional supplements.”

Even though the resident received a physician’s order to receive supplements to assist in healing, the Director of Nursing “verified no documentation of [the resident] receiving her ordered house supplement two times a day [could be found for] 01/10/2015, 06/12/15, 06/13/15, 06/19/15, 06/20/15, 06/21/15, 06/22/15, 07/03/15, 07/06/15, and 07/12/15.”

The failure to accurately document or verify supplements were received is in direct violation with the facility’s revised 03/16/2015 policy titled: Snacks, Nourishments, Supplements and Pantry Stock that reveals “nursing is to distribute supplements to residents within 15 minutes of delivery [times] or properly store supplements to distribute later, and a list is to be printed and used for a guide of delivery of supplements to residents and to record acceptance.”

This deficient practice might be considered negligence or mistreatment by caregivers because it directly violates state rules, federal regulations and policies adopted by the facility.

The Warning Signs of Elder Abuse

Elder abuse affects senior citizens across nearly every social economic group, race and culture. While many signs of abuse are obvious, others are less conspicuous when the elder victim becomes socially withdrawn or isolated from others, suffers unexpected poor physical health or is unable to communicate the abuse due to mental health issues, Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. Common signs of physical abuse can involve an unexplained sexually transmitted disease or inadequately explained burns, sores, cuts, wealth, bruises or fractures.

Many of the signs of neglect are often overlooked by family members and physicians. The most common symptoms of neglect involve:

  • A lack of access to food and water to stay fully hydrated and nourished
  • A lack of appropriate clothing or basic hygiene
  • A lack of necessary medical aids including dentures, walkers, glasses, medications or hearing aids
  • Lack of supervision when required
  • Being constantly confined in bed and left unmonitored or without care
  • Untreated or improperly treated pressure ulcers or bedsores

Client Reviews
★★★★★
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
