Huntington Place Inspection Reports
Huntington Place’s prior lawsuits allege nursing home negligence at the facility. Huntington Place also has a significant amount of inspection deficiencies cited from the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA). For instance, on December 13, 2017, the AHCA cited a whopping 23 pages worth of deficiencies against Huntington Place. These deficiencies included the following:
- a failure to establish and maintain a comprehensive emergency preparedness plan;
- a failure to inspect fire extinguishers on a monthly basis;
- a failure to maintain smoke walls that are required to be installed to resist the spread of smoke and toxic products of combustion in case of a fire;
- a failure to maintain doors to prevent impediments to opening them in case of emergency;
- a failure to adequately use power chords without being a tripping hazard, among many others.
These citations are often the result of understaffing. When staffing is thin, and there are only a few workers to address a large amount of residents, tasks such as ensuring doors are not blocked or power chords are not tripping residents are neglected. Sadly, these neglected tasks can lead to falls, fractures or deaths.
