The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to notify the State Survey Agency, within the required five-working-day timeframe, of allegations of abuse investigations.” A review of facility papers indicated a report of an allegation of abuse that occurred on May 24, 2017.
The 24-hour report indicated that the resident had made “an allegation of verbal abuse because staff talked rudely to her during personal care when she asked for assistance.” However, the completed investigation was not submitted to the State Survey Agency until seven working days “after the allegation was made.”
The “facility failed to maintain safe hot water temperatures at or below 116°F, with a maximum noted temperature obtained at 124.5°F” in seventeen rooms on three different hallways.
The Maintenance Supervisor stated that water temperatures in rooms were checked weekly. The Administrator revealed that they “expected the facility to maintain water temperatures in a safe and comfortable range.” He “stated there had not been any resident injuries attributed to hot water.” The Administrator said that “there had been no complaints brought to his attention by staff or residents that water temperatures were too hot.”
The nursing home “failed to administer pain medication local [before administering wound care].” This investigation involved a cognitively impaired resident who “was unable to participate in daily decision-making.” The resident was receiving pain medication ‘as needed’ for the treatment of a Stage III pressure ulcer.
The resident’s pain assessment form indicated that the resident “was assessed as unable to respond to questions during the assessment.” However, the assessment “did not document she was having any non-verbal indicators of pain, such as grimacing.”
The Director of Nursing stated, “that the nurses must stop the dressing change if the resident seem to be having pain and confirm or assess that the resident was medicated for pain [before] the dressing change.”
