According to investigators, “the facility failed to ensure [a resident’s] personal alarm (alarm device that gives an audible signal) was properly functioning, resulting in an avoidable fall. The facility also failed to use two staff assist with a transfer for [another resident] resulting in a laceration requiring sutures.”
Additionally, “the facility failed to serve [a third resident] beverages in a Physician ordered therapeutic cup. Actual harm occurred when [the first resident] who is dependent on two staff members for transfers and was coded as being non-ambulatory, fell and her personal alarm failed to sound when she attempted to self-ambulate.”
This deficient practice resulted in injuries “requiring hospitalization and surgical repair.” Additional harm occurred when the second resident “was transferred with one staff, resulting in a leg laceration requiring a visit to the hospital, stitches to close the wound and ongoing dressing changes in antibiotics.”
Actual harm occurred to the third resident when they were served “hot coffee in a regular cup which caused the resident to spill the hot coffee on her right hip, resulting in a second-degree burn.
The nursing home “failed to ensure soiled linen was transported [to] prevent the spread of infection.” This deficient practice “had the potential to affect all one hundred fifty-three residents residing in the facility.”
State surveyors observed in State-Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA) “carrying soiled bed linens from a resident room into the hallway of the facility. The soiled linen was not observed contained in any type of bag or safety barrier” which could increase the potential risk of spreading infection throughout the facility.
The facility “failed to provide post-fall care to [a resident] according to Physician’s orders.” A review of the resident’s records revealed that the resident had a fallen sustained a hematoma to the right breast. The resident received a Physician’s orders for “warm compresses to the right breast hematoma four times a day until resolved.”
However, when the investigators reviewed the resident’s Treatment Administration Record, it was revealed that “the resident did not get warm compresses as ordered. The warm compresses were not documented as completed” and numerous times between 6:00 AM on August 1, 2018, through the afternoon of August 9, 2018. At that time, the resident was observed to have “a large grape -sized hematoma to the right breast [and] was unable to communicate other than shaking her head” when asked if the injury was still sore.
