- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date July 3, 2018
The state investigators determined the nursing home "neglected to provide [medical] care, as ordered by the Medical Doctor, for [one resident] reviewed for respiratory care.” Additionally, the “facility neglected to clarify or obtain orders for indwelling urinary catheter changes for [the same resident].” The neglect resulted “in the resident’s indwelling urinary catheter not being changed for several months and hospitalization for urinary tract infection.”
The state investigative team initiated Immediate Jeopardy that began “on May 18, 2018” that was finally removed on July 3, 2018, “when the facility provided an acceptable credible allegation of compliance.”
The survey team reviewed the resident’s Care Plan. The plan revealed the resident was “at risk for recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs), urosepsis, or renal damage due to chronic urinary tract infections or history for recurrent UTIs .” The documentation also shows an “altered pattern of urinary elimination with an indwelling urinary catheter [that places the resident] at risk for infection.”
The documentation also shows that the resident was “resistant to treatment and care.” The resident “did not want to shower, turn off of her back, have nails cut, get out of bed, have the bed placed in a low position, have facial hair removed, have vital signs or weights taken.”
