- Failure to Attempt Different Approaches before Using a Bed Rail and Failure to Obtain Informed Consent – citation #F700 date January 12, 2018
- Failure to Provide and Implement an Infection Protection and Control Program – citation #F880 date January 12, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure residents were assessed or had consented for bed rails.” The investigation involved eight residents not assessed or without consent to use bed rails.
It was determined that “this deficient practice could affect twenty-four residents who utilize some type of bed rail in the facility and could put the residents at risk for potential injuries.” A review of one resident’s Medical Records indicated that “there was no assessment or signed consent for grab bars.”
In another resident’s Plan of Care, there was “no Care Plan [section] addressing grab bars or] Physician order.” The investigators observed the resident “lying in bed with grab bars in place.”
A review of another resident’s medical records and Plan of Care indicated that there was no signed consent for the use of bed rails and no Care Plan to address how the bed rails were used.
That resident was observed “sitting up in her wheelchair dressed. On [the resident’s] bed were one-half bed rails [in the up position].” The surveyor asked the resident, “about the bed rails.” The resident responded that “she was not able to get them down on her own but needed them to reposition herself when she was in bed.”
The facility “failed to maintain infection control programs designed to prevent the development and transmission for [two residents] reviewed for infection control.” Specifically, one member of the nursing staff “placed clean gloves in her shirt pocket to use for wound care for [a resident].” A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) “did not wash or sanitize hands after removing soiled gloves when providing perineal care to [another resident].”
This “deficient practice could affect four residents who required wound care and ten residents that require incontinent care on the hall 200 and placed them at risk for cross-contamination.” The state investigators interviewed the Director of Nursing who revealed that “staff should use clean gloves during wound care or resident care, and not place gloves into shirt pockets and to wash or sanitize hands between glove changes.”
