    A review of the resident’s Current Care Plan revealed the resident “is impatient with staff and other residents, and he is impulsive, which can cause confrontations with staff, visitors, and other residents.” The Care Plan revealed, “interventions to make sure the environment and situation a safe for [both of the residents] and others around him.” If the resident “is becoming agitated and if needed, remove all others around or remove [the resident], so everyone is safe.”

    The surveyors continued to review the grievance form indicating that the reporting resident “was offered a room change, but [the reporting resident] refused.” A subsequent Progress Nursing Note revealed that the reporting resident “initiated a verbal confrontation with his roommate, and the roommates were separated.” A Social Service Progress Note revealed that the reporting resident yelled at the aggressive resident “for being in front of the room.”

    Also, the reporting resident called the allegedly aggressive resident “an inappropriate name.” The reporting resident voiced concerns about the allegedly aggressive resident “placing his clothing on top of [the reporting resident’s] property.”

    A second incident was documented when the allegedly aggressive resident became agitated and “repeatedly stated in a profane manner that he wanted ‘him’ [the reporting resident] out of his room.” The allegedly aggressive resident also “became angry with another resident, blocked her wheelchair with his wheelchair, cursed at her and verbally threatened her.”

    The resident then “stood up from his chair and drew his fist toward [the female resident].” The staff intervened and separated the residents. However, no incident report was completed regarding this incident.”

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
