The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to initiate Emergency Medical Services (EMS) for a resident when he became in distress.” The failure was evident when one diabetic resident “was sent to the hospital and shortly [after] died ” from a wrongful death.
Specifically, “the facility neglected residents by not providing Wound Care for two days, for [two residents] who were supposed to have daily treatments, as ordered by the Physician.” The investigators initiated an Immediate Jeopardy that started when the resident’s “blood glucose registered high on the glucometer (blood glucose was more than 600 mg/dL).” At that time, “the resident was showing signs of lethargy, low blood pressure, vomiting, and unusual bowel incontinence.”
Documentation revealed that “EMS was not immediately initiated, and nursing did not continue to assess the resident.” The Director of Nursing and Administrator stated, “it was the expectation that every order was written on the Physician’s orders.” The Director and Administrator “did not know why the Physician’s orders were not followed.”
The “facility failed to provide fall mats that were identified as the safety intervention for a resident that had recurrent falls with injuries.”
On October 22, 2018, “the resident attempted to self-transfer from the bed to the wheelchair and hit her left arm on the bedside table. The resident obtained a skin tear on her left arm, which was treated. The bedside table was replaced with one that had rounded edges.”
Six days later, “the resident was found sitting on the floor in her room. The resident stated she was trying to get a pillowcase. No injuries were identified.”
On October 9, 2018, the resident “was found sitting on the floor in her room, beside her wheelchair. The resident had taken off one of her shoes. The resident complained of left hip pain.”
The resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment revealed that the resident “had a fall with a fracture and requires extensive two-person assist with bed mobility and transfers.”
