- Failure to Provide Appropriate Treatment and Cares According to Orders, Resident’s Preferences and Goals – citation #F684 date April 6, 2018
- Failure to Develop and Implement a Program That Investigates, Controls and Keeps Infection from Spreading citation #F441 date May 18, 2017
According to state surveyors, “the facility failed to provide preventative care and follow up with alteration of skin integrity that was later identified as an unstageable pressure injury and a stage IV pressure injury.”
The surveyors documented that the facility “also failed to implement treatments for skin wounds timely upon notification of the skin wound and upon readmission to the facility with a skin wound. The nursing home did not “perform weekly skin assessments and failed to thoroughly assess a skin wound for [for five residents] reviewed for pressure ulcers.”
In one case, “there was no admission/readmission assessment completed on March 1, 2018, to assess [one resident’s] skin upon the return to the facility. The Nurse’s Notes did not indicate the condition of [that resident’s] skin upon return to the facility or treatment orders for such.”
The nursing home “failed to follow appropriate infection control practices during wound care and medication administration.” The nursing home failed to “maintain infection control log to adequately monitor, investigate, and analyze infections in the facility with the potential to affect thirty-six residents residing in the facility.”
The surveyors observed the Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) placing pills in her hand before placing it in the resident’s hands. Once the resident received their medication, they were observed placing the drug into their mouth and then drinking a cup of water.
The surveyors interviewed the LPN who indicated that the resident “at times refuses to receive his medication in a medication cup. She reported she had washed her hands [before] pulling his medication from the medication cart.”
However, when the surveyors interviewed the resident, he “reported he does not mind if the staff uses a medication cup to administer his medication.” The Director of Nursing indicated that staff “should not use [their] hands to administer medication.” A failure to follow the Infection Prevention Program could lead to inappropriate control measures and the spread of infection.
