Williamsburg Health Care
This long-term care home is a 116-certified bed center providing cares and services to residents of Crawfordsville and Montgomery County, Indiana. The "county government-owned nonprofit" Medicare and Medicaid-participating facility is located at:
1609 Lafayette Rd
Crawfordsville, Indiana 47933
In addition to providing 24/7 skilled nursing care, Williamsburg Health Care offers other services. Additional focused care includes long-term care, ventilator care, short-term and long-term rehab, and wound care.
Financial Penalties and Violations
The federal government has the legal authority to penalize any nursing facility that violates rules and regulations. These penalties include monetary fines and denial of payment for Medicare services. High monetary fines usually indicate extremely severe violations that harmed or could have harmed residents.
Within the last three years, federal investigators imposed a monetary fine against Williamsburg Health Care for $6,866 on October 06, 2016, citing substandard care. The nursing home also received five complaints over the last three years that resulted in a violation citation.
Additional documentation concerning penalties and fines can be reviewed on the Indiana Nursing Home Report Cards Website.

- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation date October 24, 2018
According to state surveyors, “the facility failed to implement fall interventions, reevaluate a resident for transfer assistance, and follow post-fall procedures resulting in harm when the resident sustained [injuries].” The facility also “failed to protect [one resident] from the potential harm related to falls by not assessing a resident’s fall risk with a change in condition and updating a resident’s transfer assistance requirements on the care plan.”
The state investigators reviewed a Fall Investigation Report dated February 4, 2018, indicating that “the resident had a fall. An intervention to assess using a toileting pattern at night was put into place to prevent future falls.” The surveyors interviewed the MDS (Minimum Data Set) Coordinator who indicated that the resident had a fall on the day of the report. The Care Plan indicated that the resident “was at risk for falls due to a gait disturbance related to weakness and was a ‘limited assistance’ with walking.”
The nursing team developed an intervention to put nonslip material on the seat of the wheelchair to prevent further falls. However, on June 23, 2018, the resident had a fall. The Incident Report initiated a new intervention to offer the resident “to lie down after meals” to prevent further falls. However, this new intervention was never placed in the Fall Care Plan.
On July 29, 2018, a Nurse Summary indicated that the resident “was found on the floor on the right side of her face, with bright red blood noted on the floor. The resident sat up and a cut was noted to her right eyebrow and a small hematoma on the middle of her forehead.” The resident “grabbed at staff and was anxious. The resident was lifted onto the bed.” The resident was transported to the emergency department for evaluation and treatment.
The Hospital Progress Note dated July 29, 2018, indicated a positive x-ray showing an acute right intertrochanteric (femur) subtrochanteric fracture. A CAT scan revealed a right frontal, temporal, parietal subdermal hematoma, and a mild leftward midline shift subfalcine herniation where the brain was displaced. There was also a right temporal and posterior subarachnoid hemorrhage where the bleeding was noted between the brain and the tissue that covers the brain.
