The Villa at Stamford is one of six nursing homes fined by the state Department of Public Health for various misdeeds.
According to DPH, on Sept. 21, 2016, a housekeeper at The Villa saw a nurses aide hit, push, pull and yell at a resident with dementia while shaving the resident in bed. The aide denied the allegations but was fired six days later.
On Dec. 2, 2016, a resident suffered cuts on the side of the head and behind one ear after a nurses aide tried to turn the resident over while providing incontinence care. The resident, who had Parkinson’s disease and traumatic brain injury, required two-person assistance, according to DPH, but the nurses aide tried to move the resident without help. The resident was treated at a hospital and returned to the facility three days later.
The facility was fined $1,630 for the two incidents.
