Seven Nursing Homes Fined Due To Negligent Care

A group of seven nursing homes in the same geographic location received fines and citations for negligence in care of patients.  Citations involved incidents related to broken bones, medication errors, and abuse. There were seven incidents connected with the fines.

One incident involved two aides who allowed a patient with a broken leg to go without care for 8 hours because a physician was not notified. A second incident involved a patient that was not properly strapped in to a hoyer lift, resulting in an injury to the head when the patient was dropped from the lift.  A third incident involved abuse from an aide who punched a resident after being punched first. The aide declared, “I deserve respect!”  Additional incidents were noted among the citations to the seven facilities.  For more, read the story.
