Many individuals who require 24 hour nursing assistance including managing medications and help with daily living activities are placed in nursing facilities. Some of these individuals include the elderly, ill, disabled or those that require rehabilitation services including speech, occupational, and physical therapy. Unfortunately, placing a loved one in a nursing facility often requires extensive research to ensure that the care the facility provides meets the needs of the resident.

- Failure to Follow Protocol When Transferring Patients in and Out of the Facility:
In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 01/22/2016, a complaint investigation is opened against the facility for its failure “to provide a timely notification of involuntary discharge in writing for [a resident] who was sent to the hospital. This is in response to an incident occurring on 1/15/16 involving the Hospital Care Coordinator after the resident “was sent to the hospital due to a seizure.
On 1/13/16 when [the resident] was ready to be transferred back to the nursing home the facility would not accept [the resident] back. There is no written notice of involuntary discharge provided to [the resident] from the facility.”
The notations indicate that the resident’s doctor noted on 1/15/16 “shows that [the resident] cannot be managed safely in this facility.” The resident’s physician [describes events of 1/11/16 when [the resident] had seizure activity, [the resident’s] family member administered Klonopin 1 mg wafers along with water. This was done on 09/26/2015 when [the resident] was having grand mal seizure activity. At that time [the resident’s] family was told not to do that, they cannot give medication that was not order through our facility nor can they administer oral meds to a seizing patient.”
The facility’s Intern Administrator said “that she told [the resident’s] son the evening of 1/12/16 per telephone conversation that the facility would not take [the resident] back.” However, “the written notice was not issued until 1/14/16 when he was sent to [the resident’s] home.”
