The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to report an allegation of abuse to the State Agency within twenty-four hours for [one resident] investigated for abuse.”
The surveyors interviewed the resident on April 19, 2018, who revealed that “the resident reported that a staff member hurt the resident during care over the weekend and the resident had reported it to the facility.” The Director of Nursing stated four days earlier that “an allegation of abuse concerning rough treatment [indicated that] the facility did not report the allegation to the State Agency [and that] the investigation had not been completed.”
The nursing home “failed to perform pressure ulcer assessments consistent with professional standards of practice for [one resident].”
The surveyors reviewed a resident’s Skin Integrity Reports from October 19, 2016, through January 18, 2016.” The documentation revealed that the resident “had an unstageable Deep Tissue Injury (DTI)/pressure ulcer on the lower left extremity – posterior.”
The records indicate that there were twenty days between assessments for the skin integrity occurring on October 28, 2016, and November 17, 2016. During that timeframe, “the measurement of length of the pressure ulcer went from 3.0 cm to 4.2 cm.”
The Pressure Ulcer Assessments “were performed on December 30, 2016, and January 17, 2017, which is eighteen days between assessments. During that timeframe, the length of the pressure ulcer went from 1.0 cm to 6.0 cm.”
The facility Unit Manager confirmed “the findings from the review of skin integrity reports and revealed that there were no other pressure ulcer assessments for [the resident] during the gaps and assessments identified above.”
The facility “failed to follow the professional standards of practice for the administration of medications and following Physician’s orders.”
A review of the resident’s medical records indicated numerous diagnoses, treatments, and medications being administered for end-stage renal failure. Some documentation involving a leave of absence from the facility showed that the resident was not administered the medications during this time frame.
The Director of Nursing and Unit Manager verbally confirmed that the resident “was not administered” numerous medications according to the schedule and the Physician was not notified.
