According to investigators, “the facility failed to protect the resident from loss of her money.” The investigation involved a Self-Reported Incident regarding the misappropriation of property.
The incident was reported by a State-Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA) to the Assistant Director of Nursing. The resident had told the STNA that another STNA “had borrowed money from her and never paid it back. Upon further investigation, it was revealed that [the second STNA had asked the resident] for money to get Christmas presents for her children. The self-reported incident was substantiated.”
The survey team reviewed a written agreement signed by the STNA who borrowed the money from the resident. The document “revealed she agreed to have $500 withdrawn from her payroll check to pay back [the resident] which was the money she had borrowed from her.” The facility “immediately discharged” the STNA from the facility “for borrowing money.”
The nursing home “failed to coordinate hospice Physician orders with the facility’s current Physician’s orders.” The survey team reviewed the resident’s “current Physician’s orders” that required the resident received “oxygen at 2 liters per minute continuously.”
A review of the resident’s hospice orders “were blank and not signed by the Hospice Physician. The blank hospice orders were verified by the Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN).” However, at this time, the resident was receiving hospice services related to a chronic medical condition.
The resident’s Plan of Care detailed interventions that included “hospice nurse will coordinate care with the facility nursing staff and Physician. Hospice staff collaborates with the facility regarding the plan of care.
The facility “failed to ensure hand washing and changing of gloves during incontinence care” involving a resident who was “frequently incontinent of urine and bowel and was not on a bowel and bladder toileting program.”
The surveyors observed to State-Tested Nursing Assistants (STNAs) providing the resident incontinent care while donning gloves “without washing their hands.” One STNA “with her gloved hands removed [the resident’s] wheelchair leg rest to place the resident into bed with a mechanical lift sling.”
The surveyors document that the other STNA while wearing soiled gloves “picked up a wipe and completed the resident’s incontinence care without changing her gloves or washing her hands.”
