- Failure to Immediately Notify the Resident, the Resident’s Doctor or Family Members of a Change in the Resident’s Condition Including a Decline in Their Health or Injury – citation #F157 date December 23, 2016
- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date February 14, 2018
The nursing home “failed to conduct with the resident’s Physician for the need to alter treatment for [two residents] receiving skilled nursing care.” In one incident, a review of a resident’s medical records revealed that the resident “was ordered to receive intravenous (IV) medication related to [their diagnosis].”
However, the medical record dated November 11, 2016, and November 12, 2016, “failed to show evidence of Physician notification of [the resident’s] lack of IV access.” The Director of Nursing stated that “she was present during the time of [the resident’s] admission [and that the resident] did not have a central IV in place at the time of the admission.”
The Director stated that “she instructed the nurse to notify the Physician that a central IV was not in place [but confirmed that the nursing home had documents] to reflect the Physician notification on the resident’s lack of IV access.” The Director commented that “if it is not documented, then it was not done.”
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to monitor safe water temperatures accurately on one of two halls (A Hall). The facility failed to consistently perform weekly water temperatures checks for one of two halls.”
Specifically, this failure “had the potential to affect more than an isolated number of residents.” The survey team reviewed the facility’s Water Temperature Logs conducted on February 12, 2018, that revealed the temperature of hot water in resident’s rooms ranging from 116.9°F 119.6°F.”
