  • Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date May 2, 2018
  • According to state investigators, “the facility failed to protect the rights of the resident to be free from abuse and neglect by not providing goods and services necessary to avoid physical harm, pain, mental anguish, or emotional distress.”

    The survey team reviewed a resident’s clinical record and Admission MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment. Documentation indicated that “the office of the ambulance company had called the facility at 9:30 AM and reported to the Charge Nurse at the ambulance have been in an accident while bringing [the resident] back to the facility from [medical treatment].”

    At that time, the resident “had been sent to the emergency room for lumbar (lower) back pain, and [the resident] returned at 9:15 PM that evening.”

    The Facility Investigation revealed one witness statement from the emergency medical technician “who had been riding in the ambulance with the resident who was on a stretcher.” The technician stated that “the driver seemed to be driving inappropriately, he made a wide turn and needed to gather himself afterward. He got out of the [vehicle] for thirty seconds, then got back in.”

    The EMT indicated that “after pulling off, I noticed that the ambulance worker, I thought of it has nothing, the next thing that happened was the crash.”

    The police arrived at the scene of the accident and took the driver into custody. The “documentation indicated that the Ambulance Company Supervisor stated to the facility Director of Nursing that the police report suspected the driver was driving under the influence.”

    The investigators noted that “there was no evidence available for review at the time of the survey that the [mandatory notification] had been submitted or that other state and local agencies had been notified as required.” The Nursing Home Administrator stated during an interview that the reports were not done because the “driver was not an employee at the facility.”

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
