- Failure to Provide and Implement an Infection Protection and Control Program – citation #F880 date April 12, 2018
- Failure to Immediately Notify the Resident’s Doctor or Family Member of a Change in the Resident’s Condition – citation #F580 date April 18, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to maintain an infection prevention and control program designed to provide a safe, sanitary and comfortable environment and to help prevent the development and transmission of communicable diseases and infections.”
Specifically, a Licensed Vocational Nurse failed to don gloves during the administration of medication to the resident. These failures “placed twenty residents who resided on Hall 400 and received care from [the Licensed Nurse] by placing them at risk for cross-contamination and the spread of infection.”
The nursing home “failed to immediately consult with the resident’s physician when there was a significant change in the resident’s condition or need to alter treatment significantly.”
Additionally, “backspace a Licensed Vocational Nurse “failed to intervene and report immediately change in condition for [the resident] after the resident developed vomiting, abdominal pain, and bleeding.” Also, a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) “failed to ensure the head of the bed for [the resident] remained elevated to a thirty-two read to 45° angle per facility policy. The resident developed vomiting and aspirated.”
As a result of the negligent actions, the resident was transported to the hospital “due to a change in condition” and expired. The state surveyors determined that these failures were “a past noncompliance due to the facility having implemented actions the correct the noncompliance [before] the beginning of the survey. These failures place residents at risk for not receiving the necessary interventions to treat their specific conditions or diagnoses.”
A review of an-services reflected that all nursing staff had been trained on “physician notification with resident changes in status, abuse, neglect, and elevating the bed from 30° and 45°” when medically necessary.
