The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to protect the resident’s right to be free from misappropriation of property.” A review of the facility documentation identified that the facility had ordered a 32-inch television set [that the resident] wanted on April 3, 2016, using the resident’s credit card” at the cost of $214.69.
The Reportable Event identified that the resident’s TV was missing when the resident had been transferred to the emergency room for an evaluation. The investigative documentation shows that a resident’s visitor had come to the facility to pick up the resident’s “belongings and asked where the TV was.” The documentation shows that the resident was currently hospitalized, “an investigation was initiated, and the Physician, family, conservatory, and police were notified.”
The “facility failed to comprehensively assess a pressure ulcer.” The survey team reviewed the Weekly Pressure Ulcers Flow Sheet, indicating that the resident had “a right heel pressure area initially identified on October 9, 2016. Although the pressure area was identified as a Stage II, the flowsheet failed to include any measurements [involving the size, length, and width].”
The nursing home “failed to notify the Charge Nurse or a Rehabilitation Therapist that the device was not available to apply or the resident’s refusal to wear the splint.” The state investigators observed the resident “out of bed, seated in her wheelchair with a carrot [device] in the palm of the right hand, and the left-hand was without a carrot and contracted.”
The Nurse Aide providing the resident care identified that “the hand carrot was dirty, and she forgot to get another one.”
