- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date November 30, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to provide a systematic process to ensure residents were free from harm and neglect. On October 19, 2018, the facility failed to process an admission order for [a resident] outlining nothing by mouth.”
Two staff members witnessed the resident consuming food. Her “son found the food remnants on her clothing and bed as [the resident] reports she ate food.” Within twenty-four hours after the resident was observed eating, “she became hypoxic,” a condition involving “the absence of enough oxygen in the tissues to sustain bodily functions.”
The resident’s Physician confirmed that “food was consumed; this could cause [the resident] to experience hypoxia.” The resident was sent to the hospital by emergency transportation. The resident was readmitted to the facility with an order to receive 7.0 L of oxygen per nasal cannula.
However, “[the admitting nurse] failed to provide the necessary care, services, and meet the needs of [the resident] by not following the hospital-ordered oxygen levels.” The admitting nurse attended “a scheduled nursing meeting at the time of [the resident’s] readmission.”
The facility Administrator indicated that “the facility had identified neglect for [the resident] related to not providing the correct oxygen dose.” The resident had been administered 2.0 L of oxygen for ninety minutes on admission.
It was determined that “the failure of the facility administration staff to identify neglect related to providing food to [a resident] on NPO status and not providing oxygen at the ordered 7.0 L resulted in findings of an Immediate Jeopardy.” This investigation involved interviews and observations including “the Nursing Home Administrator, the Director of Nursing, nursing staff, [the resident’s] physician, and a review of clinical and medical records, policies and procedures.”
