According to state surveyors, “it was determined the facility failed to notify the appropriate State Agency of an incident of serious bodily injury.” The incident involved a resident who sustained “complete fractures of the distal tibia and fibula (both bones of the lower leg) above the ankle joint.”
The Director of Nursing confirmed during an interview with the state surveyors that “the facility had not contacted other appropriate State Agency to report this incident of serious bodily injury as required.”
The nursing home “failed to make certain that residents were protected from unsafe water temperatures that resulted in actual harm.” One resident suffered injuries to the skin, “the required hospitalization and skin grafting.” The deficient practice by the nursing staff “placed all facility residents in an Immediate Jeopardy Situation.”
The survey team reviewed the facility Disaster Manual and Nursing Policy and Procedure Manuals that “did not include a Legionella prevention and control program policy for monitoring water temperatures.” The Nursing Home Administrator and Maintenance Director confirmed that “there was no policy in any of the facility manuals and that the facility failed to establish a written Legionella prevention and control program as required.”
In a separate summary statement dated May 18, 2018, the facility “failed to provide supervision while smoking for [two residents].” The survey team reviewed a resident’s Care Plan that indicated the resident “was a smoker, had a goal not to suffer injury while smoking and interventions included the resident would remain in view of the staff during approved smoke times.”
However, when the resident was observed smoking, the resident “was unsupervised at a designated smoking area.”
