According to state surveyors, “the facility did not ensure nursing staff notified the Physician with a significant change of condition.” One resident “experienced a change of condition on September 13, 2017, which include poor appetite and fluid intake, a drop in blood oxygen saturation levels to 78%, and a temperature elevation.”
The “facility’s failure to ensure nurses immediately notified the Physician of a significant change in condition created a situation of Immediate Jeopardy.”
The nursing home “did not maintain an infection prevention and control program to prevent the transmission of infection by ensuring appropriate handwashing during wound treatments.” The state survey team observed a Wound Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) performing treatments.
It was documented that even though the LPN “removed gloves and washed hands at all appropriate times during the dressing change, [the LPN] only washed her hands for three to four seconds” in violation of the facility policy and nursing home regulations that control the spread of infection.
The nursing home “did not ensure that [one] respite resident had a Physician’s orders.” The resident “arrived at the facility and remained without admitting Physician’s orders.” There “were no orders directing her dietary needs, medication or functional abilities.”
The complaint filed with the state agency alleged that “the resident did not receive any medication during the [respite] stay.” This failure was confirmed by the Nursing Home Administrator who concluded during their own investigation that “the allegation was true.”
The facility “did not provide the necessary care and services to [one resident] with pressure injuries.” It was determined that the resident “had an unstageable pressure injury on the sacrum (bottom).” The resident “did not have a pressure relief cushion in his wheelchair in accordance with his care plan.”
The surveyors observed the resident for over three hours between 9:17 AM until 12:28 PM on August 20, 2018. During that time, “the resident did not have a cushion in his wheelchair.” Again, at 9:17 AM, the resident “was seated in his Broda chair in the third-floor lounge area. There was no pressure relief cushion in his wheelchair.”
