Stunning, horrific, and penalties on facility so low as to be ridiculous:

I feel so bad for the family that has to bear this.

That is so tragic and preventable.  That being said, ALFs are not the same as skilled nursing facilities.  They do not have to have nurses in staff and aren’t like memory care. It’s just so sad.

The website for this particular facility presents a beautiful building; the text mentions security multiple times.   It seems their Memory Care Unit has studio rooms for 26 patients; I do not know if the unit was at that capacity or not.

 

One thing I found interesting is that there were three aides on the Memory Care unit. They USED to assign specific patients to each aide to oversee/care for, but had dropped that care model.  No individual patients for each aide; instead, the three aides appeared to be free floating amongst the Memory Care patient population.  I wonder if and how much effect that may possibly have had upon what so dreadfully happened.
