According to state investigators, “the facility failed to notify the Physician of a significant weight loss and failed to notify the resident’s family of a transfer to the hospital.” The documentation shows that the resident weighed 164.0 pounds on July 11, 2018, and 148.4 pounds on August 21, 2018, indicating weight loss of more than fifteen pounds in less than six weeks representing more than 10% weight loss.
The assessment documented dated August 28, 2018, indicated that the “resident did have a significant weight loss of 5% or more in the last month or 10% or more in the last six months.” A nursing note dated September 26, 2018, showed that the resident “was sent to the hospital. The note did not document the resident’s contact or family member was notified.”
Additional documentation included a dietitian recommendation dated October 23, 2018, showing that the resident “had a significant weight loss of 21% for the last three months from 164 pounds 129.5 pounds. The recommendation was made for a health shake twice a day and was signed by the Physician on October 29, 2018.”
The state investigators interviewed the Assistant Director of Nursing who stated that “she was responsible for monitoring weights for the residents. The Assistant Director stated that she did not identify a significant weight loss nor notify the Physician after the resident had a significant weight loss of over 5% in one month.”
The nursing home did not “ensure hand hygiene was performed when assisting residents in eating in the dining room or on the hall. The facility Administrator identified five residents who required assistance.”
The state surveyors observed a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) “sitting by a resident in the dining room [who touched] the arm of the resident’s Geri-chair several times to assist the resident with her drinks. Hand hygiene was not observed to be performed before the nurse assisted the resident.” Additional observations were made of the LPN and a Certified Medical Aide (CMA) failing to follow established infection control protocols.
