- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date March 29, 2019
- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies That Prevent Mistreatment, Neglect or Abuse of Residents – citation #F226 date November 22, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to provide care and services to meet resident’s needs for [one resident].” The nursing home also failed to “provide supervision and assistance to [the resident according to] the comprehensive assessment and Care Plan.”
The surveyors determined that the nursing home failed to “develop and implement an individualized Care Plan for falls to meet [the resident’s] needs, who had a total of seven fall incidents between October 4, 2018, and February 11, 2019 (five months).” Also, the nursing home “failed to revise [the resident’s] Care Plan for falls after the fall incident on February 9, 2019. The resident fell [inside] his room.”
The nursing home also failed to “develop a fall management policy and procedure that specified a fall risk reassessment had to be done after each fall. This deficient practice had the potential for lack of care and resident safety risk for serious harm from frequent falls.”
The facility “failed to follow their policy to screen potential employees for abuse from previous or current employers prior to employment as part of its abuse prevention program.” The nursing home also “failed to ensure [two facility staff] knew the time frame to report any abuse with serious bodily injury to the Licensing and Certification Agency, the ombudsman, and the local law enforcement, within two hours.”
It was also determined that “one of five staff did not know the facility must report any abuse of serious bodily injury to the local law enforcement within two hours. This failure had the potential to expose residents to employees who might have had a history of abuse, neglect, or mistreatment.”
The state investigators conducted two interviews, one with a physical therapist and another with a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) who “did not know the time frame to report abuse or serious bodily injury to the Licensing and Certification Agency, the ombudsman, and the local law enforcement within two hours.”
A review of five employee files with human resources found that “one out of the five files did not contain verification of previous employment [and that Human Resources stated that she] was supposed to follow up on the staff’s previous employment but had not.”
