- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation date August 9, 2018
- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date September 21, 2017
According to state investigators, “the facility failed to provide necessary staff supervision and to maintain a resident’s environment free of potential accident hazards to prevent falls.” The documentation shows that one resident “had twenty-three falls. The fall Care Plan was initiated on admission.”
An intervention documented in the Care Plan after the fall was to “keep a urinal within reach and administer medications as ordered and labs as ordered. There were only six other dates [showing] that the Care Plan was updated after the resident had a fall. Those interventions included non-skid strips in the bathroom and padding on the railing in the bathroom.”
Documentation shows that “five of the falls occurred in the resident’s room. The other eighteen falls happened in the resident’s bathroom. The facility identified the resident as non-complying with asking for help [before using] the bathroom and that he has dyskinesia associated with [his medical condition].”
The facility “did not provide additional supervision, alarms, or some way to alert the staff that the resident was getting out of bed or the chair and ambulating to the bathroom.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure that all allegations of abuse were reported immediately [for two residents].” A review of the facility Incident Investigation Report revealed that “an alleged incident of abuse occurred involving [a resident].”
After the incident, a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) “sent an email to the Social Worker stating that [the resident] reported a [Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)] gets upset with [the resident] when she has to go to the bathroom.” The resident stated that “she was afraid to say anything that she did not want to make things worse.”
The LPN stated in an email that they have “the power to say something to [the CNA], but if she does not feel comfortable, then [the RN] can look into the situation. There is no evidence that the Nursing Home Administrator, Director of Nursing, or Assistant Director of Nursing were made aware of this allegation at this time.”
Company policy states that “the staff member who discovers the incident, suspected abuse situation, or has knowledge of such incidents will be responsible for immediately notifying his or her supervisor.”
