- Failure to Immediately Notify the Resident’s Doctor or Responsible Party of a Change in the Resident’s Condition– citation – citation #F580 date May 21, 2018

According to investigators, the “facility failed to notify [a resident’s] power of attorney (POA) of an elopement [wandering away] from the facility.” The incident involved a severely, cognitively impaired resident with Physician’s orders revealing that “the resident was to wear a wander guard to alert staff when the resident was trying to exit the facility.”
The investigative team reviewed the resident’s Nurse’s Notes that revealed the resident “remained confused and was unable to keep [lucid] thoughts.” Nurses made a late entry in the Nurse’s Notes at 8:30 PM on April 26, 2018, when the “resident was found outside in the parking lot unsupervised in her wheelchair by a visitor.” The surveyors say that “there was no evidence the resident’s POA was notified of the resident eloping from the building.”
The surveyors interviewed the power of attorney who “verified she was never notified of the resident getting out of the building unsupervised.” The Administrator verified that the resident’s power of attorney “was not notified” of the incident.
The nursing home “failed to ensure staff followed proper infection control measures for [one resident].” The deficient practice had the potential to affect all forty-one residents “residing on the third floor the facility.”
The incident involved a resident who had a lower leg amputation and other medical conditions. The surveyors observed the resident’s room that revealed “a been at the door labeled personal protective equipment (PPE) and a sign saying, ‘See the Nurse before Entering the Room.’”
Just after noon on May 9, 2018, a State-Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA) was observed taking the resident’s “tray to her room without donning any PPE.” The STNA proceeded to prepare the resident’s lunch tray and then “touch the resident’s bedside rail, touch the Comptroller for the bed at the foot of the bed and then walked out of the room without washing her hands.”
The survey team interviewed a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) who “verified anyone entering an isolation room should don PPE even if they are not touching the resident.”
