In the Elder Justice Newsletter, we highlight citations, including deficiencies related to abuse, neglect, and substandard care, that have been identified as not causing any resident harm. The goal of this brief newsletter is to shed light on the issue of so-called “no harm” deficiencies, which typically result in no fine or penalty to the nursing home.
This newsletter focuses on the following “no harm” violations:
‘He did not see it as abuse’: Facility fails to appropriately address abuse allegations.
Privacy matters: Facility fails to maintain and protect a resident’s bodily privacy.
Six pounds down: Facility fails to assist and encourage resident with eating.
Attempted strangulation: Facility fails to provide medically-related social services.
