Previous posts here have warned about the potential danger that is present for elderly Connecticut residents who live in nursing homes. While the vast majority of nursing homes and their staff members are attentive and careful to provide for residents’ needs, the unfortunate reality is that there will always be some that cross the line. According to a recent report, that is exactly what the authorities in Connecticut discovered in six nursing homes that were fined for injuries and endangerment to residents.

The recent report noted that one of the six nursing homes was fined $3,900 in the aftermath of a resident developing a “severe pressure ulcer.” The investigation into this incident revealed that the resident was not provided with the appropriate type of mattress by the nursing home. The same nursing home had previous violations earlier this year as well, for which it was also fined.

Another nursing home in Hamden was fined for conduct in four separate incidents in which residents of the facility suffered harm. One of the incidents involved an altercation between a member of the nursing home staff and a resident over a “call bell,” while one of the other incidents involved the failure of one staff member to notify other staff members and family members when a resident’s pressure ulcer worsened.

Some of the other violations that were noted in the recent report involved residents falling and suffering injuries. In all, there is a wide variety in the number of ways that a nursing home resident can be injured due to the negligence or abuse of staff members.
