Brighton Gardens of Yorba Linda

When our elder loved ones move into nursing homes, long-term care facilities or board and care facilities, we trust that they will receive attention, medical care, proper nutrition and will be generally well-cared for. Unfortunately, this does not always happen, even in the best of facilities. Because of their special needs, the elderly are particularly vulnerable to illness and injury.

Brighton Gardens of Yorba Linda has violated a shocking amount of laws and has received a very poor rating by Medicare. Brighton Gardens Of Yorba Lind in Yorba Linda California has a 60% occupancy rate with 27 residents using its 45 beds. They are part of a multiple nursing home ownership and are a For Profit nursing home. The home is located in Orange County, California.

Brighton Gardens of Yorba Linda violations include:

  • Develop a complete care plan that meets all of a resident's needs, with timetables and actions that can be measured.
  • Give each resident care and services to get or keep the highest quality of life possible.
  • Give or get lab tests to meet the needs of residents.
  • Have a program to keep infection from spreading.
  • Have drugs and other similar products available, which are needed every day and in emergencies, and give them out properly.
  • Make sure that staff members wash their hands when needed.

  • Prepare food that is nutritional, appetizing, tasty, attractive, well-cooked, and at the right temperature.
  • Provide activities to meet the needs of each resident.

  • Provide services to meet the needs and preferences of each resident.
  • Store, cook, and give out food in a safe and clean way.

How an elder care facility like this can cause such violations such as medical equipment and nutrition violations are completely astonishing, inexcusable and should not be tolerated.
