The state surveyors determined an Immediate Jeopardy situation existed “related to the facility’s failure to notify the Physician of worsening pressure ulcers.” In one incident, a resident was admitted to the facility with a “Stage II pressure ulcer on the right buttocks that measured 2.0 cm x 3.0 cm. The resident subsequently developed additional pressure ulcers on the left buttock and the sacrum.”
The resident “was sent to the hospital “with the increasing weakness, decreased oxygen saturation levels, and worsening pressure ulcers.” The hospital records documents that “upon arrival to the hospital, the resident was found to be septic [blood infection] with an advanced stage III and Stage IV sacral pressure ulcer with active drainage, necrotic [dead] tissue, bone exposure, and tunneling into the right and left gluteal muscles and pelvic area..”
According to state investigators, “the facility failed to ensure an allegation of misappropriation of resident property [for one resident] who was reviewed for abuse protocol was reported [promptly] to the Administrator and the State Survey Agency.” The Administrator “identified seven allegations of misappropriation of a resident’s property and investigated in the last four months.”
The surveyors reported that the CNA made “an allegation of misappropriation of [a resident’s] property that she had witnessed. She stated she had witnessed another CNA taking the resident’s personal supply of pudding and soda pop from her room.”
The surveyors reviewed the Initial Incident Report involving an allegation made to the surveyor of a CNA “stealing soda, pudding, and money from residents.” The CNA was suspended pending the outcome of the investigation.
Also, the facility failed to “ensure new employee reference checks were completed upon hire for [one Certified Medical Assistant (CMA), two Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs), one Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), and a Licensed Assistant (LA).”
