San Simeon by the Sound Center for Nursing & Rehabilitation received 25 citations for violations of public health code between 2016 and 2020, according to New York State Department of Health records accessed on April 10, 2020. The Greenport nursing home’s citations resulted from a total of four surveys by state inspectors. The deficiencies they describe include the following:
1. The nursing home did not provide adequate bedsores / pressure ulcer care. Section 483.25 of the Federal Code stipulates that nursing homes must ensure residents with pressure ulcers receive “necessary treatment and services, consistent with professional standards of practice.” An October 2017 citation found that San Simeon by the Sound Center for Nursing & Rehabilitation did not ensure such for one resident. The citation states specifically that the facility “did not compete thorough assessments nor provide adequate treatment” of a resident assessed upon admission as at risk of pressure ulcers. A plan of correction undertaken by the facility included the review of the charts of all residents with stage 2 or greater pressure wounds.
