Home Faces Allegations Of Withholding Documents Related to Resident Death

A nursing home is facing serious allegations of withholding documents related to the death of one resident and the serious risk of harm or injury of three other patients.  The home was cited for various unmet standards after a state survey was conducted by the Bureau of Health Care Services.  One of the citations included not identifying a plan with a resident regarding their desire for CPR if in a medical emergency arose.

The resident that died was not given CPR, nor was an emergency call place until 20 minutes after the resident became unresponsive. This incident along with the others has led to a lawsuit against the home with concerns for the well-being of the residents that were harmed, as well as the any other residents in the home’s care.
