Failure to Ensure That Services Provided by the Nursing Facility Meet Professional Standards of Quality - citation date January 12, 2017
According to investigators, the facility "failed to maintain professional standards of quality by delaying treatment and isolation precautions for one resident." Their failure included not "obtaining a laboratory report."
The investigators reviewed a resident's Physician's orders and laboratory report that "revealed the presence of probable contamination." The resident's Nurse's Notes indicated "the specimen was collected on January 2, 2017." However, there "was no report in the clinical record of the [specimen] being collected" on that date."
During an interview with the Assistant Director of Nursing, it was revealed that "she did not know why there was no report for the collected [specimen] in the resident's chart." The Assistant Director revealed that the laboratory results indicated that the resident "had an extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL) multi-drug-resistant E. coli urinary tract infection."
The Director also confirmed, "there had been a 5-day delay in treating [the resident] for a urinary tract infection, which could have resulted in urosepsis, as well as a 5-day delay in providing contact isolation for [the resident], which could have resulted in transmitting the urinary tract infection to other residents."
Failure to Provide a Safe, Clean and Comfortable Home-like Environment - citation date January 12, 2017
The state investigators documented that the facility "failed to maintain an odor-free environment in two rooms on the 300 halls." Observations were made at the facility when there "was a strong malodorous urine smell emanating from the rooms [of two residents] and in the hall between those residents' rooms." Two days later, the investigators noticed a "continuous strong malodorous urine smell emanating from [the same two rooms] and in the hall between those two rooms."
On the third day, "there continue to be a strong malodorous urine smell emanating from [the same rooms and in the hallway]." The investigators interviewed the housekeeper of the 300 Hall who stated that "there has been an odor in [those rooms] for a while now and they may need to clean the mattress is because they can still smell urine." The housekeeper "stated that sometimes the mattresses are completely soaked with urine."
