- Failure to Provide Appropriate Treatment and Services to a Resident Who Displays or Is Diagnosed with Dementia – citation #F744 date May 17, 2018
- Failure to Provide and Implement an Infection Protection and Control Program – citation date May 17, 2018
According to state investigators, “the facility did not provide appropriate treatment and services to address the resident’s dementia with behaviors.” In this incident, the resident “did not receive appropriate treatment and services when [the resident] exhibited psychosocial adjustment difficulty. The facility did not conduct a thorough, comprehensive assessment of [the resident or their behaviors].”
The investigators determined the facility “did not develop a resident-centered Care Plan to minimize or prevent behaviors. Psychiatric services did not evaluate current interventions for effectiveness and did not provide alternate interventions for staff to utilize and attempt to assist [the resident with their] dementia or psychosocial adjustment difficulty.”
The facility “did not determine a root cause analysis of [the resident’s] behaviors. Several staff members indicated [the resident] changed from a sweet person to one who is mean, agitated and aggressive.” At one point, the resident “became increasingly verbally and physically aggressive which resulted in [the resident] having a resident-to-resident altercation, throwing coffee at others, and hitting them.”
The nursing home “did not always ensure that [four residents] were identified for possible communicable disease. The facility did not provide a consistent system for identifying residents with possible communicable diseases as part of their infection control program.”
The investigator stated that this screening “is to be done [before] or upon admission to the facility to ensure the safety of all residents.” In one incident, a resident was admitted to the facility and given a test for a medical condition on the right forearm “which was read as negative on April 9, 2018. The second step of the screen was scheduled to be given on April 16, 2018 and read on April 19, 2018.” However, “there was no evidence that the second step of the screen was completed according to accepted clinical standards of practice and medical record review.”
The Division of Quality Assurance received a written complaint on March 1, 2018, that alerted the Division that the resident “was not given the screen upon admission to the facility. There is no documentation in the medical record, or the infection control records, of Step #2 screen done on admission for [the resident].”
