According to investigators, “the facility failed to follow appropriate infection control guidelines related to medication administration and a dressing change. This deficient practice affected [one resident] reviewed for nebulizer treatments and affected [one resident] observed for wound dressing changes.”
The surveyors observed the Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) providing nebulizer treatment for a resident without cleansing the mouthpiece or the medication cup and never allowing the devices to air dry before placing them in the holder.
The surveyors interviewed the Registered Nurse (RN) who indicated “after administering a nebulizer treatment, staff failed to rinse out the mouthpiece and medication cup then place them on the paper towel to dry.” This failure was verified by the Director of Nursing who stated that the facility should follow their “infection control guidelines.”
The facility “failed to ensure the resident that self-administered medications was appropriately assessed for self-medication administration.” The surveyors observed the resident “in his room, asleep in his recliner. Two small cups that contained multiple medication tablets and capsules were observed on the resident’s bedside table.” The resident had indicated later during an interview that they had to “self-administer their medications.”
The survey team interviewed the Director of Nursing who indicated “if a resident wished to self-administer medications, they would first be assessed for their ability to do so.” However, no documentation in the resident’s clinical record “indicated the resident had been assessed for safe self-medication administration since November 27, 2017. The clinical record lacked a quarterly self-administration medication assessment” since that date.
The nursing home “failed to provide adequate urinary catheter care for [one resident] reviewed for urinary catheter care.” The surveyors observed the resident “to have a suprapubic indwelling catheter. The drainage tubing and bag contained yellow urine. The drainage bag was inside a dignity bag.”
While the resident’s Treatment Administration Record documented that the resident was to have “suprapubic catheter cares every shift, twice a day. This order was discontinued on October 14, 2018, when [the resident] was admitted to the local hospital.”
