- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect, and Mistreatment – citation date April 18, 2018
- Failure to Ensure There Is a Pest Control Program to Prevent/Deal with Mice, Insects or Other Pests – citation #925 date February 12, 2019
The state surveyors determine “the facility failed to develop or implement policies and procedures which were in accordance with state and federal regulations.” The incident involved two allegations of abuse that “were not reported immediately to the administration,” and “allegation of abuse not reported to the Oklahoma State Department of Health [that] was not investigated,” and “an allegation of abuse not reported to the appropriate licensing agency.”
The deficient practice by the nursing staff “had the potential to affect all seventy-five residents who resided in the facility.”
According to investigators, “the facility failed to have an effective pest control program.” Three undated work requests for the maintenance and custodial employees documented “the description of work/repair where roaches” were in multiple rooms. Workers sprayed for roaches. However, the Resident Council Minutes dated December 3, 2018, and January 7, 2019 document that “roaches were still in the facility.”
The surveyors conducted an environmental tour on February 12, 2019, and saw multiple dead roaches on the walls, floors, and under a resident’s information bulletin board in the living room. Other roaches were observed on the wall under the garbage disposal sink and in the sink in the electrical room on the 600 Hall.
In a separate summary statement dated September 20, 2018, the investigators determined “the facility had failed to have an effective pest control program.” The survey team reviewed a Pest Control Invoice from June 27, 2018, saying that cockroaches are found in the interior rooms. The September 14, 2018, Pest Control Invoice noted cockroaches inside the facility.
The survey team interviewed twelve residents who all verified that they had “seen roaches in the facility.” During an interview with the facility Administrator, it was verified that the current problem with roaches remains a constant problem.
