Washington District of Columbia Nursing Home Safety Concerns One Star Rating

Our attorneys review data on every long-term and intermediate care facility on Medicare.com and the District of Columbia Department of Public Health website.

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

  • Failure to Respond Appropriately to All Alleged Violations – citation #F610 date July 30, 2019
  • The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to thoroughly investigate an incident of abuse and neglect for [a resident], implement measures to prevent potential abuse and neglect to other residents within the facility, and take appropriate corrective actions to keep the resident safe from possible abuse and neglect.”

    The facility Administrator stated that “all residents were checked, and three residents who are combative or exhibit combative behaviors are identified.” The “Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) identified in the complaint survey is no longer employed as of July 16, 2019.”

    A review of a Nurse’s Note indicated that a member of the staff was called by a CNA “to come to the resident’s room.” The CNA stated that “he was trying to give care to the resident when she became combative in the process of turning, and the resident hit her head on the side of the rail of the bed.” The staff member assessed the resident “and noted swelling” on the left side of her face. The resident was transported to the emergency room via 911.

    Hospital records show the results of a CAT scan that revealed that the resident had “sustained trauma, [with] left pre-orbital soft tissue swelling, [with a] displaced fracture [orbital fracture].”

  • Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date July 11, 2019
  • The “facility failed to stop giving morning care to a combative resident who was attempting to scratch the employee. Subsequently, the resident sustained [an injury].”

    A Progress Note indicated that the resident “does have swelling of the face and lips, which are clearly trauma-related. The patient’s teeth, which are broken, also have excessive decay, which is unrelated to the incident.”

    The staff member providing care stated they had gone off on the resident who was still combative. The staff member said, “I know that I was supposed to wait a few minutes to let him/her calm down, but I had to get the job done. I had to finish pulling up his/her pants because I had to finish the job.”

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
