- Failure to Ensure That the Nursing Home Area Remained Free from Accident Hazards and Risks and Provide Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #323 date July 27, 2017

According to state surveyors, “the facility failed to ensure fall prevention interventions were implemented” for one resident who required “extensive assistance from one staff person when walking in the corridor.” The resident’s Restored of Care Plan revealed that the resident “was at risk for falls and required the staff to follow behind the resident with her wheelchair.”
Surveyors observed the resident “ambulating slowly with a walker and a rocking-type gait.” The resident “was halfway down the hallway, approximately 30 feet from her room and walking toward a State-Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA).” The resident stopped walking and asked the STNA “to get her wheelchair.”
The STNA responded by saying, “You are supposed to walk. No, come on, now.” The STNA “left the hallway and entered the shower room” while the resident “continued a few more steps and stopped.”
In Registered Nurse (RN) entered the hallway and observed the resident “standing alone in the hallway and said, ‘Don’t move.’” The RN “immediately brought the resident’s wheelchair from her room and walked behind [the resident] to the end of the hallway.” The Director of Nursing verified that “a staff member must remain with the resident because [the resident] was unsteady at times and unpredictable.”
The “facility failed to ensure adequate infection control practices following catheter care [were followed for one resident].” Specifically, “the facility failed to ensure biohazard waste was properly secured. This [deficient practice] had the potential to affect eighteen cognitively impaired, independently mobile residents.”
Additionally, the facility “failed to ensure proper handwashing during medication administration.” The surveyors interviewed in Registered Nurse (RN) who verified that “she did not wash or sanitize her hands between resident care [and] revealed she washed her hands [before] administering medications to [another resident, saying that] she thought handwashing is required only between every five residents.”
In a separate summary statement dated April 20, 2016, the nursing home “failed to ensure appropriate infection control practices were followed related to glove use during an observation of medication administration.” The surveyors observed the Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) obtaining blood sugar levels “by finger stick [before] the administration of the medications.”
During the procedure, the LPN “did not remove her gloves, and opened the second door of the medication cart, touched the several medication cards, closed the door, and opened the next to her. She located the medication card and punched the medication from the cart, returned the car to the drawer, closed and locked the cart.”
The LPN went into the room and used the same gloves hands to obtain the resident’s blood sugar” levels using a glucometer.
