Fighting to End Nursing Home Abuse in Georgia

Death & Infections at the Hands of My Seniors' Caregivers

There is a morbid danger lurking within a place that is trusted by adults everywhere—nursing homes. Imagine placing your mother, father, grandmother, grandfather or elderly aunt or uncle in the supposedly comforting and nurturing environment of a nursing home, without being able to ensure they are receiving the care they need.

 

Now imagine your loved one coming down with a potentially deadly illness while under the care of the very people to whom you entrusted their lives. Unfortunately, this paralyzing fear proved to be a horrifying reality for me.

My name is Lee Nola Hall West, and my passion for exposing abuse in Georgia nursing homes started when my mother caught MRSA while living in a nursing home in February 2014. While rooming with my mother, my grandmother also contracted the MRSA in September 2014. My grandmother went temporarily blind for a week as a result of the infection, was also severly malnourished and passed away after being rushed to the hospital on December 18, 2014.

 

Why are we so complacent about subjecting our elders, the wisest members of society, to this type of systemic abuse? Why do we feel this is right, and why is no one causing an uproar over this? I, for one, am attempting to combat nursing home abuse everywhere, but I cannot succeed without your help. Georgia’s 350 nursing homes are currently monitored via unannounced surveys by less than 40 inspectors spread out throughout the state, which is a disgrace.

Even though my Mother is living at home, I will always keep up the fight against Nursing Home Abuse. THIS IS MY COMPASSION!!! Sadly, to say that the cover up, neglect and malpractice extends beyond the boundaries of a nursing home, I realized this after my Mother Annie Doris Hall returned home from the Joe-Anne Burgin Nursing Home (321 Randolph Street, Cuthbert, Georgia 39840) by observing how deceptive some Home Health Agency (VNA) operates. For an example, the home health nurses verbally stated to me that Momma's culture of her Gastric Peg Feeding Tube Site of entrance was negative for infection. When, in fact, Momma continue to have MRSA, and has also been diagnosed with having CELLULITIS INFECTION. This demonstrates how they are all cohorts together. Entrusting lives to medical professionals like these, is like trusting a fox into a hen house. We all know that the fox will cause the hen great harm. When will justice prevail against these heinous crimes that are being committed against humanity? The jails, penitentiaries and prisons are filled to the capacity because of criminal acts that are being committed for far less than those of these nursing home crimes. Look at how Joe-Anne Burgin Nursing Home! Teresa Bryant, Administrator, starved my sweet Grandma Mrs Rosa B. Kinsey Hall to death. Also, Mrs. Bryant took my mother off four (4) of her medications, and placed her in the care of hospice. Medical records are being falsified. I ask the question: what will the results show from an autopsy of an exhumation ff a Precious Soul that died while being in the care of a Nursing Home? WHEN WILL THERE BE JUSTICE FOR THEM ALL?

These are pictures of my grandmother Mrs. Rosa B. Kinsey Hall at the time of her death. Look at how malnourished she was. 

My grandma, Mrs Rosa B. Kinsey Hall, was severely abused to death. The staff didn't make any attempt to feed her. They would sit her food down and leave Grandma unattended. She finally received a Nasalgastric Feeding Tube after I asked for one. This happened to my grandmother at the Joe-Anne Burgin Nursing Home in Cuthbert, Georgia.

A bedsore on my grandma Mrs Rosa B. Kinsey Hall's foot. This abuse happened to her, while being in the care of the Joe-Anne Burgin Nursing Home.

My mother, Annie Doris Hall, was thrown off the showerbed. Her head and body got bruised. Momma wasn't sent to the hospital for any tests or treatments. This abuse happened at the Four County Health & Rehabilitation Nursing Home at 124 Overby Drive, Richland, Georgia 31825.

This picture shows my Mother Annie Doris Hall being fed through a "Urinary French Foley Catheter instead of a proper "Gastric Peg Feeding Tube." WHAT ABOUT ALL OTHER PATIENTS / RESIDENTS? HOW ARE THEY BEING TREATED? This happened to my mother at the Joe-Anne Burgin Nursing Home.

Fort Gaines Health and Rehab Nursing Home (101 Hartford Road, Fort Gaines, Georgia 39851) allowed my mother's Diabetes to rise over 740, and put her in a Diabetic Coma. She also was Dehydrated, had an Urinary Tract Infection and her Eyesight was affected. The hospital doctor told our family that Momma probably wouldn't live through that night.

After a News Special Report coverage aired on a "Case of MRSA found at nursing home, " a complaint was filed pertaining to my Momma Annie Doris Hall, and I complained face to face with Cathy (I do not know her last name), R.N. She was an inspector with Healthcare Facility Regulation Division of Georgia. The Joe-Anne Burgin Nursing Home continued to withhold several of momma's medications -- Albuterol Sulfate being one of them. This medication is for momma having Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Look how Momma is wheezing!

There a lot of side effects to having Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA). Red infected eyes and a Sty on eyelid are side effects on someone having MRSA. My mother Annie Doris Hall's eyes was infected, and had a Sty on eyelid. While being in the care of Joe-Anne Burgin Nursing Home 321 Randolph Street Cuthbert, Georgia 39840.

This is a disgrace for my grandmother, Mrs. Rosa B. Kinsey Hall, to have  become emaciated like this. This is her arm and the round pink spot is where and abscess was. Grandma literally lost her life due to the "NEGLECT and MALPRACTICE" of Joe-Anne Burgin Nursing Home. Only God Jehovah and Jesus Christ knows the extent, to how many lives that's been lost. Due to this  barbaric and heinous crime called NURSING HOME ABUSE. That is running rampantly!!! Nothing is being done to protect the patients.  (EXODUS 20:13 - You shall not murder.)

I noticed momma's left big toe nail was puckering up and the toe swollen. I reported my findings to her nurse. Later that day, the toenail was removed by John Chitoh, N.P. Momma was a patient/resident at Joe-Anne Burgin Nursing Home, 321 Randolph Street, Cuthbert, Georgia 39840.

This is actually the Mushroom Gastric Peg Feeding Tube. It was yanked out of my momma's stomach. This type of feeding tube has an round firm end, it's not like that of the balloon end feeding tube, where you can deflate that kind and easily remove the tube. I retrieved this  tube from the trash can after the hospital worker threw it away. The Mushroom Gastric Peg Feeding Tube was yanked out at Pioneer Community Hospital, 11740 Columbia Road, Blakely, Georgia 39823. The Fort Gaines Nursing Home uses Pioneer Community Hospital for procedures and sent my momma (Annie Doris Hall) there for feeding tube replacement.

It seems as if Joe-Anne Burgin Nursing is comfortable with causing someone to become gravely ill and die. Because why would they deny my grandmother, Mrs Rosa B. Kinsey Hall, medical attention? On several visits to see momma and grandma, grandma's Intravenous (I.V.) would be disconnected or it would be placed on hold.

When I Iook at my Grandma Mrs Rosa B. Kinsey Hall in this photo. My heart aches, seeing how swollen and thin her face was. Knowing now she was dying, her life was literally  being snucked out. She died from an infection, and its complications. She was my mother's roommate at Joe-Anne Burgin Nursing Home. Momma was diagnosed with having " MRSA. " At Joe-Anne Burgin Nursing Home, Dr Abdollatif S. Ghiathi, Teresa Bryant (Administrator), Lindsay Bentley, R.N. (Director of Nursing) D.O.N, Sharon Stockings, R.N., Carla Patterson, LPN, Ombudsmen, and Healthcare Facility Regulation Division knew about this case of MRSA and failed to properly treat it. "They will not tell you the truth." There needs to be better laws to protect and care for all the patients/residents in these Healthcare Facilities. We don't have to look over any borders for enemies because we have them right here -- they're home grown!!! In this this great United States of America, look at how deadly some of these Nursing Homes are being operated. Or, how our healthcare is failing, such as doctors offices, nursing care facilities and hospitals. Look at how some of these doctors are lying; by saying your tests are normal, knowing that they are not. To prove my point, I welcome any tests to be performed on my mother, Mrs. Annie Doris Hall. She can be tested for any kind of infection, I, Lee Nola Hall West, gladly welcome any test. The way the system is set up, it is designed so that you can't even see a medical specialist until you get a referral from another doctor. Well Jehovah isn't pleased when someone deliberately causes harm to others. We all will be judged, never think you're getting away with doing evil. "JEHOVAH IS IN CONTROL!"

My Father, Willie L. Hall

My daddy, Mr. Willie L. Hall, was never in a nursing home, but I would like show what killed him. My daddy was prescribed Zocor by Dr. William Danny King, 324 Macon Street, Eufaula, Alabama 36027. Some medications require regular routine laboratory work to be done on the patient, so what happened here in my daddy's situation? Why wasn't any laboratory work done on my daddy?

 

My husband and I took my daddy to Flowers Hospital, 4370 West Main Street, Dothan, Alabama 36305. I will forever be grateful to the Flowers Hospital staff for caring for him. My daddy was hospitalzed for 11 days. So much infection was in his body, that the blood hemolyzed (jelled up) during testing. My daddy's defibrillator shocked him five times, and his Alkaline Phospatase was very high: 347. Daddy's Sputum Test, tested positive for a few white blood cells and a few gram Cocci. It was presumed that intolerance to Zocor was associated with his illness. After testing, we learned that my daddy had Carcinoma Pancreas Cancer and it had spread. My daddy died eight months after learning he had cancer. I LOVE AND MISS MY DADDY SO MUCH !!!

Joe-Anne Burgin Nursing Home, 321 Randolph Street, Cuthbert, Georgia 39840, was written up several times by Georgia Department of Community Health, for allowing my momma Annie Doris Hall to contract Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA). " Look at how Teresa Bryant - Administrator is being allowed to operate Joe - Anne Burgin Nursing Home, so deadly ". People are literally losing their lives, due to the actions of people like Tersesa Bryant and Joe- Anne Burgin Nursing Home. These are heinous crimes that are being commited, and are being seriously ignored while others are incarcerated for lesser crimes. My sweet precious Grandma Mrs. Rosa B. Kinsey Hall lost her life due to MALPRACTICE and NEGLECT that she received from Joe- Anne Burgin Nursing Home, while being a patient / resident in their care. "How many other nursing homes are getting away with murder?" One thing for certain, GOD, JEHOVAH, and JESUS CHRIST, are going to get all evildoers. There is no escaping their judgement. No one can help you escape their wrath and it is coming!

King James Version Bible

(PSALM 83:18) That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the Most High over all the earth

(1 JOHN 4:7 - 8) Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.

(#8) He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

(#2 TIMOTHY 3:2) For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy

(MATTHEW 25:40 - 46) And the King will answer and say to them, Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.

(#41) Then He will also say to those on the left hand, Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels.

(#42) For I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink.

(#43) I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.

(#44) Then they also will answer Him, saying, Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?

(#45) Then He will answer them, saying, Assuredly, I say to you inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.

(#46) And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.

How many other patients/residents are being abused and/or have been abused by a badly operated nursing home? They are being looked down on as if they were the cause of their abuse -- as if they were silhouettes without faces or names. Where are the organizations that are designed to protect and care for their welfare, of each and every patient/resident living in the Nursing Homes and Long Term Care Facilities? WHERE ARE THEY???
