- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date January 10, 2017

According to investigators, “an Immediate Jeopardy situation was determined to exist regarding the facility’s failure to maintain safe hot water temperatures in one hall bathroom accessible to residents. The hot water temperature exceeded 160°F.”
The investigators asked the Maintenance Supervisor how often “he checked the water temperatures. He stated every week in the resident rooms. He was asked if he could check the temperature in the hall bathroom across in the laundry room.”
The Maintenance Supervisor stated that “he did not even need to check this temperature [saying] he already knew because it was connected to the laundry.” The surveyors asked, “what the temperature should be for the bathroom.” The Maintenance Supervisor replied that “it should be the same as the laundry, 100° and ridiculous.” The surveyors asked the Maintenance Supervisor to check the temperature anyway.
The Maintenance Supervisor stated that the bathroom water is connected to the laundry “which has to be 160°F” but should be “115°.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure residents were free from unnecessary medications.” The facility’s “Resident Census and Condition of Residents’ Report documented that twenty-three residents received antipsychotic medication.”
The surveyors reviewed one resident’s Quarterly Assessment dated October 19, 2017, that indicates that the severely, cognitively impaired resident had no documented behaviors or a medical condition for taking antipsychotic drugs but “she received an antipsychotic medication on seven of the last seven days of the look-back period.”
The resident’s November 2, 2016 Care Plan documents that the resident was being assisted by a Hospice Aide “with her bed and the resident became resistive to care on March 30, 2016. The Care Plan documented on April 12, 2016 [that a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)] stated during personal care, the resident began grabbing and pinching the staff member and slapped one CNA on the face.”
The document shows that the resident received antipsychotic medication “for a delusional disorder was monitored for side effects and behaviors.” However, the resident’s Care Plan Quarterly Review dated July 26, 2016, and October 28, 2016 “document that the resident had no reported behaviors and the last three months, and her goal was met.”
