- Failure to Provide Necessary Care and Services to Maintain the Resident’s Highest Well-Being – citation #F309 date June 23, 2016
- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date February 18, 2016
According to state surveyors, “the facility failed to administer a skin treatment per the Physician’s orders” and failed to “ensure call lights were answered [promptly].” The deficient practice “had the potential to affect all eighty-four residents who resided in the facility.”
The state surveyors reviewed one resident’s Physician’s orders, and treatment and administration records. The Physician orders documented that the nursing staff would provide skin treatment care. However, numerous Treatment Administration Records “did not contain the documentation of the Physician’s orders for the treatment.”
Additionally, the Quarterly Assessment documented that “the resident had no skin issues and no creams or ointments had been applied during the look-back period.”
In a separate summary statement dated February 18, 2016, the facility “failed to assess, monitor, and intervene [promptly for one resident] who had experienced falls.” The fall “was not reported by staff to the Charge Nurse until the next day. There were no assessment, monitoring, or interventions for this resident until the afternoon of the following day.”
As a result, the resident sustained injuries to her right distal femur leg bone. A Nurse’s Note documented that “the resident had a fall out of bed last night.” Vital signs were taken, and the resident was assessed. The resident complained of “pain in the right knee, and there was some inflammation.” The resident was sent out to the hospital for further evaluation and returned from the hospital following surgery to the right femur.
While the Assistant Director of Nursing provided an in-service document on what a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) should do when a resident falls, and there were fourteen signatures on the in-service form, “there was no documentation of what information was provided to the staff at the in-service” meeting.
The nursing home “failed to thoroughly investigate allegations of abuse and neglect.” The facility “identified two allegations of abuse and neglect had been made in the last three months. This [failure] had the potential to affect all ninety-four residents who resided in the facility.”
Documentation shows that “reportable allegations of abuse/mistreatment were reviewed” involving an investigation that included focused assessments and interviews. However, “there was no documentation the interviews or focused assessments had been completed.”
The surveyors asked the Director of Nursing to provide interviews and focus assessments “done to investigate the allegation of abuse. The Director stated that Grace Living Center does not allow for interviews or focus assessments to be written down. This is how I was taught and how I am doing the investigations.”
