On 4/13/07, an 86 year old resident fell to the floor and suffered fractures to both knees when a CNA dropped her while transferring her without help from another staff member and without the use of a gait belt, as required by the resident's careplan. She underwent surgery on 4/16/07 and died two days later from complications from the leg fractures. The facility was cited because its neglect led to the resident's death.
