- Failure to Immediately Notify the Resident’s Doctor or Family Member of a Change in the Resident’s Condition – citation #F157 date April 13, 2017
- Failure to Provide Sufficient Fluids/Food to Maintain the Resident’s Health – citation #F692 date June 21, 2018
According to investigators “the facility failed to ensure a family [member] was notified on a significant change. This [deficient practice affected one resident] reviewed for family notification of a significant change in condition.”
The investigators reviewed the resident’s Progress Note that shows that the resident “requires the use of an indwelling Foley catheter for bladder emptying.” The Progress Note documents the resident’s penis foreskin was extremely painful by irregular skin swelling.
The condition appears to be from “the catheter tubing.” The resident had a documented “urethra opening larger from the Foley, and a small amount of greenish/yellow drainage noted from the site.” During an interview with the Assistant Director of Nursing, it was revealed that “the facility believed hospice was going to take care of the family contact.” The Assistant Director verified that “there is no documented evidence the facility or hospice ever actually notified [the resident’s] family.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure weight monitoring and appropriate nutritional interventions were implemented when significant weight changes occurred.” The deficient practice involved three residents “reviewed for nutrition.”
In one incident, a review of a resident’s Quarterly MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment identify the resident “as having severe cognitive impairment” and having “a weight loss of 5% or more in the last month, or 10% or more in the last six months, and not being on a prescribed weight loss regimen.”
A review of the resident’s Nutritional Care Plan identified “the resident as having a nutritional problem or the potential for a nutritional problem related to oral intakes varying, and at risk for significant weight loss possibly due to adequate oral intakes.”
The Care Plan indicated that the resident had lost a significant amount of weight in one month and “refused supplements. Interventions included to [remain] alert for signs and symptoms of malnutrition” that could be identified as “a weight loss of three pounds in one week, greater than 5% in one month, greater than 7.5% in three months, or greater than 10% weight loss in six months.”
