- Failure to Provide and Implement an Infection Protection and Control Program – citation #F880 date June 4, 2019
- Failure to Assist the Resident in Gaining Access to Vision and Hearing Services – citation #F685 date January 26, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to implement its Infection Control policies and procedures related to urinary catheter bags observed on the floor for [two residents].”
The state surveyors observed a resident lying in bed on June 4, 2018, at 7:53 AM. The resident’s catheter bag “was on the floor.” A subsequent observation of the resident at 8:38 AM showed that the “urinary catheter and the privacy bag was on the floor.”
The nursing staff had been provided orders to provide catheter care every shift and as needed and “monitor catheters for signs and symptoms of infection every shift; keep the leg straps on at all times; ensure the catheter is strapped to the side to prevent trauma or dislodgment on every shift.”
A Registered Nurse (RN) observed the resident’s catheter bag on the floor and responded that the catheter bag “should not be on the floor because it increases the chance of [the resident] getting an infection.”
The facility “failed to provide services to maintain vision abilities for [one resident] by not providing a vision consult for [the resident].” The nursing home also “failed to ensure residents’ assistive devices were in good working order [to maintain] vision abilities.” The investigation involved three residents with vision impairment.
In one case, the resident reported on the morning of January 25, 2018, that “she had a problem with her eyes.” However, a review of consult “did not reveal any consult by an ophthalmologist.” A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) indicated the resident “did not wear eyeglasses, and she was not admitted with glasses.” The LPN revealed that the resident “never told her she had any problems with her eyes or any problem seeing.”
The resident indicated that when “she came to the facility she was not wearing glasses, but she used to have glasses before, a couple of years ago.” The resident said that “her eyes were not hurting, but she could not see well out of the left eye.”
A second LPN stated that upon looking at the initial admission nursing assessment, the resident did have impaired vision, and the admitting nurse should have put in for a vision consult.
