- Failure to Respond Appropriately to all Alleged Violations – citation #F610 date March 1, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to investigate an allegation of potential abuse, neglect, exploitation, or mistreatment.” Specifically, “the facility failed to thoroughly investigate a potential incident of abuse or neglect.”
As a result, the resident “was left on the bedpan for an undetermined amount of time, which caused skin breakdown and increased pain. This incident was not thoroughly investigated, and the State Agency was not notified timely.”
A review of the resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment shows that the moderately, cognitively impaired resident “requires extensive assistance with all activities of daily living. She was totally dependent on staff to require two-person assistance for toileting. The resident had a catheter and was continent of bowel.”
The resident had an “activities of daily living” Care Plan that documented the resident had a self-care performance deficit “related to a right tibia/fibula fracture.” There was “no goal, and the intervention related to toileting was left blank. The use of the bedpan was not addressed in the care plan.”
The state investigators interviewed the resident who said, “he was using a bedpan when he needed to have a bowel movement and would use the urinal the rest of the time. He said the Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) placed him on the bedpan when he needed to use it. The CNAs would leave the room while he uses the bedpan to give him privacy and that he would call for the CNAs to get him off the bedpan.”
The resident indicated that “he had been left on the bedpan for long periods of time, half an hour to upwards to two hours.” The resident’s daughter stated during an interview that “she had been notified the resident had been left on the bedpan for over twelve hours.” A facility visitor stated that “she had discussed the resident with the Nursing Home Administrator who confirmed the resident had been left on the bedpan overnight.”
The visitor stated that the Nursing Home Administrator “had reported to her a review of the video cameras that confirmed staff went in and out of the room, but she could not identify which staff person placed had left the resident on the bedpan.”
