These penalties include levying monetary fines and denying payment of Medicare services. Typically, these violations result in penalties when investigators found severe problems that harmed or could have harmed a resident.
Medicare has cited this facility for abuse. Medicare says that “every nursing home resident deserves to retain their basic human dignity and be treated with respect at all times. Abuse and neglect are never acceptable.” Nursing homes “cited for abuse are required to take steps to protect their residents.”
Within the last thirty-six months, Medicare denied payment on August 24, 2018, due to a lack of quality care. This nursing facility received thirteen complaints and self-reported twenty-six serious issues over the last three years that resulted in violation citations.

- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date August 29, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure that [one resident] was kept free from abuse when [another resident] threw water on [the first resident].” This failure resulted in the assaulted resident “getting angry and upset.”
A Licensed Nurse said that on the evening of March 28, 2019 after just passing medications, two roommates were involved in an incident. The nurse said she heard one resident “hollering ‘hey, hey.’” She stated since [the first resident] was nonverbal, “he would yell out when something was wrong.” The Nurse stated that after going into the room, she saw the nonverbal resident “standing by his bed, pointing to his bed and his shirt. She stated both were wet.”
The Nurse asked the other resident “what happened [and he stated that] he threw water on [the nonverbal resident] because he would not shut up.”
In a separate summary statement of deficiencies dated July 23, 2019, the nursing home “failed to ensure that [one resident] was free from neglect when [the resident] was left sitting in a soiled brief on July 1, 2019 between 11:15 AM at 12:40 PM.” The failure by the nursing staff caused the resident “to experience emotional distress when she had tears running down her face, describing her experience.”
The state investigators interviewed the resident who stated that “call lights are sometimes not answered for thirty to sixty minutes [and said that on that day,] she put on her call light and no one answered. She had to wait one hour to be changed from her soiled brief.”
The resident stated, “I was upset.” The surveyors noted tears running down the resident’s face as she spoke.
