According to state investigators, “it was determined the facility failed to implement the policy and procedure involving investigations of injuries of unknown origin.” A review of the resident’s clinical record revealed the nursing Progress Notes documented “a change in condition.”
The notation indicates that there was bruising noted during a skin check on the resident’s bilateral arms. However, a review of documentation provided by the facility “failed to reveal that the facility’s policies and procedures were implemented and that an investigation was initiated into the cause of the injuries of unknown origin.”
In a separate incident, a facility investigation into a second resident’s “fractured elbow revealed witness statements from two licensed nursing staff who cared for the resident.” There “were no other witness statements from the staff of care to the resident at the time that the resident began complaining of right arm pain.”
A review of the facility investigation revealed after interviewing the resident that “the facility concluded that the resident’s arm was fractured at some point while being turned in bed.”
The facility Administrator and Director of Nursing confirmed that “the facility’s policy and procedure regarding investigating injuries of unknown origin were not implemented regarding the bruises identified on [two residents].” It “was determined that the facility failed to ensure injuries of unknown origin were investigated.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure a clean and sanitary environment for residents during an initial tour of the facility.” The deficient practice involved three shower rooms.
A discussion with the Nursing Home Administrator and Nurse Practice Educator confirmed that “the shower room was observed with an infection control issue.” During the tour, the shower rooms were observed with “several red droplets, brown splatters, and reddish-brown smears across three-quarters of the shower chair seat. Also observed in the shower room was two visibly soiled, dry washcloths on the handrail on the shower chair as well as covering back brush wedged into the wall handrail.
In a separate summary dated October 31, 2018, “it was determined the facility failed to provide a clean, comfortable environment on one of three nursing units.” During an initial tour of the facility, a “strong smell of urine” was noted “when entering B Unit of the facility.
