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.

According to surveyors, the "facility failed to ensure staff uses proper hand hygiene that two meals served in the dining room on the secured unit."
The surveyors observed a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) on unit three dining room who "did not use hand sanitizer or wash hands with soap and water when serving" meal trays. The same CNA "touched a milk carton door and did not use hand sanitizer or soap and water before removing the tray from the kitchen meal cart and setting up for a resident."
Subsequent observations were made of the CNA failing to follow the facility's policies on preventing the spread of infection and diseases throughout the nursing home. An interview with the Director of Nursing revealed that "staff should wash hands with soap and water before they start passing the meal trays and hand sanitizer before they start passing the meal trays and hand sanitizer between residents and trays."
The facility "failed to maintain an effective pest control program to ensure the environment was free from roaches throughout the facility. The deficient practice has increased the likelihood to affect all 103 residents residing in the facility."
During an interview with the resident, it was revealed "that the facility had both mice and rats that climb up the inside of the door frame and the bathroom. The mice and rats come in from the holes at the bottom of the door frame."
A second resident stated that "some of the rooms have rats in them." The resident "had not seen any in her room by had seen one in the white Christmas tree in the treatment nurse's office." The investigative team observed the dry storage area with the Dietary Manager and saw "several cans of food had rodent droppings on the top of the cans." The Dietary Manager "confirmed that there were rodent droppings on the cans."
