- Failure to Provide Necessary Care and Services to Maintain the Resident’s Highest Well-Being – citation #F309 date February 28, 2017

According to state investigators, “a past non-compliance Immediate Jeopardy situation was determined to exist due to the facility’s failure to provide care to maintain the resident’s highest level of well-being.” The “facility failed to use correct procedures to initiate ventilator support.”
The facility also “failed to ensure the resident’s ventilator was set up and initiated as ordered for the resident.” The resident was “returned from the hospital by ambulance and was placed on a ventilator. The nurse had powered the ventilator.
However, “the ventilation had not been initiated. The staff left the room. Approximately ten minutes later, two nurses returned to the room and found the resident unresponsive and initiated cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).”
It was determined that the resident “was without ventilation for approximately ten minutes. The resident was transported to the hospital via ambulance and expired.” The investigators determined that a past non-compliance Immediate Jeopardy situation occurred and reported it to the Oklahoma State Department of Health.
Documentation shows that the “nurse involved was immediately suspended for three days. The report documented the nurse would be allowed to return to work after she had completed ventilator training with the respiratory therapist. The report documented the nurse would be placed on probation for ninety days and would [be randomly monitored] twice weekly for ninety days [regarding] ventilator compliance.”
The nursing home “failed to provide the necessary supervision to prevent accidents.” The facility failed to “provide the nutrition to prevent falls for [two residents]” and failed to “complete a thorough investigation for falls [involving three residents].
The nursing home failed to “implement resident specific interventions to prevent falls” and failed to “monitor the effectiveness of interventions to make changes as necessary for [two residents].” As a result, one resident “sustained multiple falls including a fall resulting in a hip fracture which required surgical repair.” The documentation identified ten residents “who had fallen [at the facility] in the past six months.”
