- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date August 9, 2019
- Failure to Ensure Services Provided by the Nursing Facility Meet Professional Standards of Quality – citation #F658 date August 9, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to report within five working days of the incident the results of their investigation for a facility-reported incident, involving [one resident] regarding abuse allegations, to the State Survey Agency. This deficient practice had the potential to result in unidentified abuse of the facility and failure to protect other residents from abuse.”
The investigation involved a severely cognitively impaired resident who “requires extensive assistance from staff for bed mobility, transfers, locomotion on-and-off the unit, dressing, eating, toilet use, and personal hygiene.” A review of documents and medical records revealed that at approximately 4:00 PM, “linen was noted to be placed across the resident’s lap, secured to the wheelchair, [to] prevent the resident from falling related to agitation as evidenced by episodes of constantly trying to stand up unassisted.”
The investigation of the facility-reported incident involving the resident asking questions to the Administrator concerning the results of the investigation that “were reported to the State.” The Administrator stated that “the results of the investigation were faxed to the health Department [eight days] after the incident occurred.” The Administrator stated that “she did not know if the incident had been reported exactly within five days.”
The Administrator stated that “it took us a long time to do the investigation because we had to put people on suspension.”
The “facility failed to follow the Physician’s orders to notify the primary medical doctor or nurse practitioner when the resident’s blood sugar was outside of the parameters (a boundary or limit) for the resident. This deficient practice had the potential to result in ineffective management of the resident’s blood sugar level.”
Documentation shows that on five occasions over five days, the resident had irregular blood sugar levels ranging between 202 mg/dL up to 269 mg/dL. The investigative team interviewed a Registered Nurse (RN) who stated that “she could not find any documentation from the nurses that the doctor was notified about the resident’s blood sugar being over 200 mg/dL” as required by Physician’s orders.
