Suffolk County (NY) Nursing Home Fined For Cover-up And Falsification Of Records After Resident Breaks Hip

Medford Multicare Center For Living, a Suffolk County, Long Island, NY nursing home must pay a $35,300 civil penalty due to neglect of a resident that was caught on videotape.

Two certified nurses’ aides (C.N.A.’s) at the nursing home transferred a 94 year-old resident from her bed to a wheelchair without using a hoyer lift as called for in the resident’s care plan. The resident complained of pain and two days later an x-ray confirmed that she had a fractured femur. Both employees provided false written accounts of the incident to the facility.
