Nursing Home Cited For Safety Violations After Putting Patient In Immediate Jeopardy

The Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) conducted an inspection of a nursing home recently. Findings revealed numerous violations of care for the patients. The nursing home was cited by the HHS for the inadequate care issues.

On one occasion documented during the inspection, a patient’s life was put in Immediate Jeopardy when dropped from a lift. The patient sustained a head wound from the fall. The CNA noted that she had never been trained on how to use the lift in the 8-9 months she had been working at the facility. For more, read the story.
