Wesley Gardens Corporation received 75 citations for violations of public health laws between 2017 and 2021, according to New York State Department of Health records accessed on April 1, 2021. The facility has also received three fines since 2016, totaling $16,000, over findings of health code violations. The Rochester nursing home’s citations resulted from a total of six inspections by state surveyors. The deficiencies they describe include the following:
1. The nursing home did not adequately prevent medication errors. Under Section 483.45 of the Federal Code, nursing homes must maintain medication error rates below five percent. An August 2019 citation found that Wesley Gardens Corporation failed to ensure such. The citation states specifically that while a resident’s physicians orders stated that their medications were to be administered at 9am, they were observed being administered at 11:10am. In an interview, the Licensed Practical Nurse who administered the medications stated that they were administered late because there was “only one nurse passing medications on the unit,” and that four other residents also received late medication administration. A plan of correction undertaken by the facility included the counseling of the LPN.
