  • Failure to Make Sure Services Provided by the Nursing Facility Meet Professional Standards of Quality – citation #F281 date October 23, 2017
  • The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to provide evidence of following the prescribed treatment orders for [one resident].” The state investigators interviewed a resident who stated that “her prescribed wound care and treatments were not done last night.”

    The resident indicated that “there was not a nurse on the wing last night to perform the treatments. She further stated that she was told that they did not have a nurse and the nurses on duty were focused on administration of the medications and could not do the treatments.”

    The Physician had prescribed multiple wound care orders for the resident to receive numerous types of treatment to the left buttocks. Additionally, the nursing staff was ordered to “change [the resident’s] gastronomy tube dressing site every night.”

    The staff was to perform “catheter care every shift and other nursing treatment orders for assessment and monitoring for pain, checking the placement of the gastronomy tube for enteral feeding; monitoring all open areas for signs and symptoms of infection, and offloading heels while in bed.”

    The survey team reviewed the Treatment Administration Record that revealed “[the nurse] failed to place her initials in the appropriate box to indicate wound care, [catheter care], gastronomy tube care and the nursing treatment orders were completed for the night shift on October 22, 2017.” The surveyors also say that the Treatment Administration Record revealed “the above treatments were not initialed that they had been completed on October 8, 2017, and September 23, 2017.”

    The state investigators interviewed a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) who stated that “she was unaware that [the Night Nurse] was unable to perform the dressing changes on [the resident] last night. She further confirmed that the dressing currently on [the resident] indicated that [the resident’s] wound care was not completed by [the Night Nurse].”

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa

After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
