ALAMEDA, Calif. —
Three East Bay nursing homes are facing stiff fines in connection with the deaths of three people living at the facilities. The Kindred Transitional Care and Rehab on Willow Street in Alameda is where the state says two and a half years ago, a resident died by bleeding to death.State officials released a damning report Thursday and announced that the company that was in charge is being fined $75,000.As of March, the nursing home is no longer operated by Kindred.In late 2010, a 74-year-old male resident died by bleeding to death and according to the state report, workers, including a nurse, did almost nothing to stop it.The report adds that a nurse, who said she was exhausted, was unable to identify the signs and symptoms of hemorrhaging and stated, "I don't know. I am blank," said the report.According to the report, this happened despite a nursing assistant being quoted as saying there was blood everywhere.The report concludes by saying Kindred staff, "Did not apply pressure to the hemorrhaging, thus allowing resident one to bleed to death."The report came with a class AA citation, which is the most severe under state law.Also fined Thursday by the state were O'Connor Hospital in San Jose and St. John Kronstadt Convalescent Center in Castro Valley, both for deaths of patients.O'Connor was fined $65,000. The Convalescent Center was fined $60,000.
