State investigators determined that “the facility failed to complete a thorough investigation into an allegation of neglect for [one resident]. This [failure] had the potential to affect the 130 residents residing in the facility.”
The investigators reviewed the moderately, cognitively impaired resident’s Self-reported incident that revealed that 1:00 PM on December 29, 2016, the resident “was in the dining room when the facility staff reported a potential choking episode. The nursing staff performed the [Heimlich] maneuver. Upon investigation of the incident, it was discovered the resident had received regular chicken strips, cut into bite-size pieces.”
The facility investigation report over the incident identified seven staff members “involved in the incident as witnesses.” These employees included the Cook, a Registered Nurse (RN), two Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs), and three State-Tested Nursing Assistants (STNAs)
However, the facility investigation “revealed only three witnesses” the LPN, and two STNAs.
The nursing home “failed to provide privacy curtains to surround both beds in many double occupancies rooms.” This failure was observed during an initial tour of the facility with the Maintenance Director.
The tour revealed several “resident rooms had only one curtain suspended to tracking from the ceiling. The tracking system allowed [a portion] of the curtain to be pulled around either bed. However, the tracking and privacy curtain system could not be utilized to provide coverage and privacy around both beds in the double occupancies rooms.”
The facility “failed to treat residents in a dignified manner.” The investigation involved a resident with “no cognitive deficits” who requires extensive assistance with bed mobility, dressing, toileting, personal hygiene, supervision with eating” and “was on a Physician prescribed weight gain regimen.”
The state investigators interviewed the resident who stated she had a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) who was “very rude to her on two separate occasions [stating that] she made her feel very bad as she was trying to do as much as she could, and was planning to go home, but her home health had not been set up yet.”
