- Failure to Ensure Residents Receive Proper Treatment to Prevent New Bedsores or Heal Existing Pressure Sores – citation date November 30, 2017
- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation date November 30, 2017
- Failure to Develop Policies That Prevent Mistreatment, Neglect or Abuse of Residents – citation date October 26, 2016
According to investigators “the facility failed to ensure pressure ulcer treatments were applied as ordered for [one resident] reviewed for pressure ulcers.” The deficient practice resulted “in the potential worsening of a facility-acquired pressure ulcer, and the potential for further clinical compromise.”
The “facility failed to provide adequate supervision during a transfer for [one resident] reviewed for falls.” The deficient practice resulted “in the potential for serious injury and harm.”
The survey team observed the resident “sitting in a wheelchair outside the room and reported, ‘they (the nursing staff) do not believe in answering call lights. They do not like to answer.’ When asked if there was a particular shift, [the resident] reported, ‘all of them are bad. The other day, I rolled over, fell out of bed, and pressed my light, but when no one came, I yell for help.”
The nursing home “failed to implement their policy/protocol for Abuse Prevention for [three residents].” In one incident, a resident had “two unusual occurrences that were not thoroughly investigated and [another resident] having one unusual occurrence that was not thoroughly investigated, and [a third resident’s] concerns with nursing care going unreported, placing these residents at risk for potential incidents of abuse/neglect to go undetected.”
The survey team reviewed a nurse’s note documenting one resident’s “right great toe was bleeding, and treatment was put in place. A Physician’s Progress Note [documented that] the patient had an incident in the morning, but nobody saw her, nobody witnessed the injuries, but definitely, she injured her right toe. There is no additional documentation [about] the investigation to determine the cause of the injury, nor is there an ‘unusual occurrence report.’”
There is documented evidence that the resident “was observed to be on the floor near her bed with a laceration to her left eyebrow.” During an interview, the Nurse Manager said “the resident had fallen out of bed recently and cut her left eyebrow. The Nurse Manager could not recall if any investigation had been conducted [and] was unaware of the resident’s incident [regarding] her right toe.”
