  • Many Nursing Homes Aren't Prepared For Even Basic Emergencies
    In California, 53 percent of nursing facilities have been cited for at least one of two deficiencies related to emergency preparation: training employees what to do in an emergency and carrying out unannounced staff drills; or having a detailed written plan for disasters and emergencies, such as fire, severe weather and missing residents.

  • Deaths and Damage in Hurricane-Affected US Nursing Facilities
    The facility outside Miami where eight residents died last week has been cited for 33 deficiencies since 2014 for noncompliance with federal regulations. The sheer number of those citations seems to show that these tags and small associated fines have not deterred the facility from further noncompliance. Meanwhile the industry is lobbying for deregulation and weaker enforcement of such regulations...Harvey and Irma have underscored the importance of protecting people who live in nursing facilities.

  • Sub-Acute Patients can Stay in San Francisco, Administrators Say
    In a sharp turnaround, California Pacific Medical Center will keep 28 patients currently at St. Luke’s Hospital who had been told earlier that they would have to leave the hospital by October 31. Now, the St. Luke’s facility will stay open until June 30, 2018, a memo from hospital staff to patients indicates. Moreover, once it closes, the 28 patients with needs like intravenous feeding and ventilator dependency will be able to remain in San Francisco at another California Pacific facility. It’s unclear if that will be the new facility next door or the center’s Davies campus in Duboce Triangle.
