According to state investigators, “the facility failed to ensure a resident was free from abuse.” This deficient practice by the nursing staff involved a severely, cognitively impaired resident “investigated for abuse.”
The investigators reviewed a self-reported incident dated March 10, 2018, that revealed “an allegation of verbal abuse regarding [a resident] against [a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)].” The summary identified that the LPN “was using a very loud tone of voice, telling the resident to wake up because she was not allowed to sleep in the common area.”
The incident involving the LPN was reported by two State-Tested Nursing Aides (STNAs). The facility placed the LPN on administrative leave, conducted a thorough investigation and terminated the employee “because the allegation of verbal abuse was substantiated.”
The investigative team interviewed the Administrator who revealed: “she completed a full investigation which included interviews with all staff at work in the dementia unit on the night in question.” The Administrator stated that they had also attempted to speak with the resident to determine if she was alright. The resident “stated she was, but it was determined she was not a credible witness. There were no signs of injury.”
The nursing home “failed to provide necessary treatment and services to promote healing and prevent new pressure ulcer development.” This deficient practice affected one resident “reviewed for pressure ulcers.” The surveyors noted that the facility “identified that no current residents have pressure ulcers.”
The survey team reviewed the Physician’s Orders and Care Area Assessments. One resident’s Care Plan notes that the resident “is at risk for pressure ulcers related to decreased mobility, incontinence, Alzheimer, and total care for all activities of daily living.” The nursing staff is guided to offload the resident’s heels.
However, a review of the resident’s Nurse’s Notes indicated that the Physician was at the bedside and noted blister filled areas to the resident’s left inner heal. The survey team observed the resident up in the Geri-chair “with no [Physician ordered] wound boots on and feet were resting on the foot of the recliner and not offloaded.”
