- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date October 20, 2016
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure an open box of medical supplies and medicines were not left unattended in [a resident’s] room.” The investigation involved a severely cognitively impaired resident with “short-term and long-term memory problems.”
At 8:00 AM, the surveyor went into the resident’s room and observed an open box, “which contained medical supplies, on the floor. The brown paper box was sitting on the floor by [the resident’s] bed that was approximately one foot high by one foot wide and contained two suction catheters and tubing, seven bottles of normal saline, twenty-two bandages of 4 x 4, six tubes of Adapt paste, four bottles of Med Honey, seventeen bandages, syringes, tubing, and more bandages.”
Nearly three hours later, “the box was still sitting on the floor by the resident’s bed.” A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) “walked in the resident’s room and the surveyor asked what was in the box.” The LPN said that “it was all of her supplies that hospice brought. The surveyor asked what they were there for.” The LPN stated that they were treatment supplies that were not supposed to be there but “put in the closet.”
The LPN confirmed that there was a danger with the box sitting there, indicating that “someone could trip over it, and it really should not be sitting on the floor.” The survey team asked the Registered Nurse (RN) Supervisor “if the facility was aware that Hospice had been leaving supplies in the resident’s room.” The RN stated that “the box has been sitting there for several months.” The surveyor asked, “do you think the box sitting there could be a danger?” The RN replied, “Yes, someone, including residents, could trip over it and fall.”
The RN Supervisor further stated that “what if the resident’s tube feeding came out and got all over the floor or the ostomy bag burst open?” The Supervisor indicated that “a visitor could go in with a grandchild [who could] get into the supplies.” When asked “who is responsible for the medical supplies sitting on the floor?” the RN Supervisor stated, “ultimately, it is me, I should have moved them.”
