The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to provide a safe environment, by failing to lock the medication cart when unattended.” The investigation involved two nursing staff members, “observed during a medication pass.”
On one occasion, a Medication Aide prepared medication for a resident and “left the medication cart unlocked and entered the resident’s room to administer the [drug]. The medication cart was not in view of the Medication Aide when in the resident’s room.”
The Aide said that “she was supposed to lock the medication cart when it is not in sight.” The Aide said that “she did not lock the cart because she knew she would be back in just a second.” The Director of Nursing stated that “the medication cart should be locked when the Medication Aide was away from the cart.” The Director said that she had spoken to the Aide “about not locking the medication cart in the past.”
The “facility failed to assess a pressure ulcer and failed to carry out a Wound Clinic referral, which resulted in the decline of infection of a wound.”
The Director of Nursing stated that the resident had been admitted from the hospital with “redness on her buttocks from incontinence.” The Treatment Administration Records revealed, “daily documentation that dressing treatments had been conducted, as ordered, were signed off by the nursing staff.” However, there was “no description of the wound included in the Treatment Administration Records.”
The Director of Nursing’s Note from February 26, 2019, revealed: “the excoriated areas to the buttocks had increased in size.” By March 4, 2019, the “excoriated areas on the buttocks and sacral area continued [to worsen] and a new treatment was initiated.”
The nursing staff was to turn and reposition the resident “every two hours for pressure relief.” By April 9, 2019, the Nurse’s Note indicates that “the wound bed was covered with dark gray tissue, with a moderate amount of foul-smelling purulent drainage.” The records indicate that “the wound also had some yellow slough.”
