- Failure to Ensure That Every Resident Is Free from the Use of Physical Restraints Unless Need for Medical Treatment – citation #F604 date August 30, 2018
- Failure to Provide and Implement an Infection Protection and Control Program – citation date August 30, 2018
According to state investigators, “the facility failed to ensure [one resident] was free from physical restraints. The resident census and condition of residents identified no residents with restraints” in the nursing home. The investigation involved a severely, cognitively impaired resident whose Quarterly Assessment documented “had experienced no fall since the prior assessment and had no bed rails, restraints or alarms.”
The resident’s Care Plan dated July 28, 2018, indicated the resident had “limited physical mobility related to dementia [and was a] low risk for falls related to no awareness of safety needs, deconditioning and gait/balance problems.” There was a note in the clinical record that documented “do not remove bed rails as per Physician’s orders.” However, “there was no documentation to indicate an assessment had been completed to determine if the bed rail constituted a restraint.”
The survey team interviewed a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and asked what was “the purpose of the side rail?” The CNA replied, “to keep the resident from falling.” The CNA verified that the resident never “attempted to get out of bed by herself.”
The surveyors asked the Director of Nursing “why the resident had side rails?” The Director did not answer but stated that “she did not know” when asked, “if an assessment had been completed to determine if the side rails were a restraint.” There was “no assessment for the determination of the side rails as a restraint” provided to the surveyors during the investigation.
The “facility failed to ensure residents were provided wound care and gastronomy tube care in a manner to prevent cross-contamination.” The surveyors indicated that upon observation of a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) providing gastronomy tube care, the LPN put on gloves, cleansed the PEG tube site, completed the care, removed his gloves, picked up the supply box and left the room without ever washing hands after the provision of the care.
The same LPN was observed providing wound care to another resident who required incontinence care for a bowel movement. The LPN “cleansed the rectal area and proceeded to remove the dressing on the buttocks [but] did not change gloves after he provided the incontinent care.”
