Disability Rights Michigan

DRM received a complaint alleging neglect at a nursing facility. Staff requested and reviewed records from the nursing facility and learned a female resident had experienced a fall resulting in fractures to her tibia and fibula. Despite protocol, this resident was not assessed or diagnosed with fractures until much later, prolonging her pain and suffering. Following investigation by the Bureau of Health Professions, the Attorney General’s office issued an Administrative Complaint against the doctor. In June 2018 the complaint substantiated a violation of the Public Health Code and the physician was fined $5,000.
