According to state surveyors, the facility failed to “ensure that it did not employ individuals were found guilty of abuse, neglect, exploitation or mistreatment by failing to conduct and maintain completed criminal background checks.” The nursing home did not perform a background check on a Dietary Aide, two Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) and a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN).
The facility “did not ensure that [one resident] at risk of developing pressure injuries received consistent measures to prevent the development of pressure injuries.” The investigators noted that the resident was observed: “not to have their heels floated to relieve pressure and prevent the development of pressure injuries.”
On numerous occasions between May 8, 2018, and May 14, 2018, the resident was observed with “heels resting directly on the mattress and not off-loaded to relieve pressure and prevent pressure injuries.” The survey team informed the Director of Nursing of the findings of the staff not following established protocols. The Director confirmed that the resident’s right heel should have been offloaded to relieve pressure and prevent injuries.
The nursing home “did not implement interventions to reduce hazards and risks and evaluate and analyze hazards and risks.” In one incident, a resident was observed: “with fall interventions not in place and the facility did not evaluate and analyze for hazards and risks after [the resident] reported the fall.” The facility also “did not implement new interventions to reduce hazards and risks after [the resident] reported the fall.”
In a separate incident, another resident “was transferred with a Hoyer lift with one person when it indicated to have two persons for the transfer.” A third resident “was observed in bed in the high position with no fall mat on the floor.” A fourth resident “was found multiple times on the floor which was not reported and investigated as falls.” The Director of Nursing verified that the facility failed to provide an accident free environment.
