- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date June 24, 2016
- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies That Prevent Mistreatment, Neglect or Abuse of Residents – citation #F226 date June 24, 2016
The facility “failed to ensure side rails were assessed to determine if they were safe for resident use.” The nursing home also failed to ensure that residents who were “at risk for falls received the necessary supervision and assistance to prevent falls and that residents remain free from potential accident hazards.”
This deficient practice affected seven residents and “resulted in the potential harm when [seven residents experienced an increased risk of entrapment] when bed/side rails safety assessments were not completed.”
In one case, a resident “experienced multiple falls without evidence of increased supervision.” Another resident “experienced twenty-seven falls, and interventions were not revised to prevent falls.” A third resident “experienced multiple falls and interventions that were not revised to prevent falls.” A fourth resident “was at risk for experiencing a burn from a grate in front of the fireplace in the day room.”
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure two reference checks were completed [before] starting work in the facility for [two employees].” This failure placed ten residents under the care of an Aide and a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) “at risk for adverse events.”
One employee’s personnel file contained only one reference check “at the time of the review, seventy-two days after hire.” The CNAs “file did not contain reference checks at the time of the review, thirty days after hire.”
The Human Resources Specialists and Director of Nursing Services “reviewed the employee files and could not find the reference checks.” The Director stated that “she remembered calling the references for both and could not find where the documents were placed.”
