- Failure to Immediately Notify the Resident, the Resident’s Doctor or Family Members of a Change in the Resident’s Condition Including a Decline in Their Health or Injury – citation #F580 date February 8, 2018
- Failure to Develop and Implement a Program That Investigates, Controls and Keeps Infection from Spreading – citation #F441 date September 22, 2016
According to investigators, “the facility failed to thoroughly assess a resident and notify the Physician if the resident experienced a change in condition area” the incident involved a severely, cognitively impaired resident who “developed 102 degrees Fahrenheit temperature.” At that time, the resident “was warm to the touch; a light sheen covered the resident, tempered washcloth to the forehead was applied.”
The nurse’s summoned a Registered Nurse (RN) who immediately brought a crash cart into the room and performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). The nursing staff then called 911 who took over CPR when they arrived. However, “the resident did not respond and succumbed to their condition.”
Before the resident died, a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) had administered Tylenol because of the resident’s elevated axillary temperature of 102 degrees Fahrenheit. During an interview with the LPN, it was revealed that “at the beginning of her shift she was given a report with no mention of abnormalities” in the resident’s vital signs and verified that the resident’s temperature had not been rechecked at 7:00 AM when they had reported to work.
The LPN also verified that the facility had not notified the resident’s Physician of the elevated temperature until “after the resident had expired.” The LPN then confirmed that “she did not conduct any further assessment of [the resident] when the resident had the elevated temperature.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure one resident’s medication was crushed with a metal pill crusher without the potential risk of cross-contamination.” The incident involved a resident “who had their medications crushed by this nurse.”
Observations were made of a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) providing medications to the resident from the medication cart. The nurse never cleaned the pill crusher without sanitizing the device while using an improper procedure for crushing medications.
In a separate summary statement dated December 20, 2017, the facility “failed to implement infection control practices of hand washing or the use of hand sanitizer while passing resident medications.” The surveyors made numerous observations of Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses providing care and administering medications without wearing gloves, washing hands, or using hand sanitizer.
