According to investigators, the facility “failed to provide comprehensive assessments and protocols regarding the initiation and use of side rails. The deficient practice was identified” for eighteen residents.
The investigators conducted an initial tour of the facility and observed one resident “in bed with bilateral upper side rails in the raised position. The resident’s family was of the resident’s bedside.”
The survey team reviewed the resident’s medical records that revealed “no documented evidence to show that the facility tried alternative intervention/devices [before] the installation and use of side rails. There was also no documented evidence at the facility addressed risk versus benefits on the side rail with [the resident] and family [before] installation.”
The nursing home “failed to provide adequate indication and monitoring for the use of psychoactive medications for a resident. This deficient practice was identified for [a resident] reviewed for psychoactive medications.”
The survey team reviewed a resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment on numerous dates that reflect that “the resident did not exhibit any behaviors.” The resident’s Psychiatric Consult revealed a Consult Progress Note written by the psychiatric nurse practitioner to continue providing the resident their medication and that “they would try a gradual dose reduction once the resident was stable.”
The survey team reviewed the resident’s Care Plan which “reflected targeted behaviors of calling out, yelling to go home, wringing hands, refusing to get out of bed or refusing to leave the room. There was no evidence of the facility monitoring the resident’s behavior or tried other non-pharmacological interventions before starting psychoactive medication.”
The facility “failed to store the resident’s oxygen equipment/tubing in a clean, sanitary manner for [two residents].” The nursing home also failed to “maintain residents’ shower on the Elmwood Unit in a clean manner.”
The surveyor observed the Evesham Unit shower room after getting a report from a resident’s roommate “who stated they had just showered, and the shower room was dirty. The surveyor observed the shower room floor with streaks a black substance on the floor.”
