- Failure to Provide Appropriate Treatment and Care According to Orders, Resident’s Preferences and Goals – citation #F684 date May 10, 2018
- Failure to Provide Safe and Appropriate Respiratory Care for a Resident When Needed – citation #F695 date May 10, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to provide treatment and care [according to] professional standards of practice by failing to follow Physician’s orders related to medication administration” involving two residents. The nursing home “also failed to provide appropriate wound care for [another resident] and failed to properly obtain orders for and document the use of a Foley catheter for [the fourth resident].”
The state investigators reviewed a resident’s Physician’s orders and Medication Administration Record. During an interview with the Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), it was revealed that “[the nurse] confirmed that [the resident] did not receive her [antibiotics] today at 10:00 AM or 2:00 PM as ordered. She stated, ‘I have told the Unit Manager multiple times today and have also called her Physician to make him aware [that] [the resident] did not receive her antibiotics.”
The facility “failed to provide respiratory care and services consistent with professional standards of practice [involving two residents] reviewed for oxygen therapy.”
In one case, the surveyors observed the resident “lying in bed with oxygen applied via nasal cannula at 3.5 Liters Per Minute (LPM).” The following morning, the same resident was observed lying in bed, receiving the same amount of oxygen.
The investigative team noted that “the back of the oxygen concentrator revealed the filter was covered with thick gray debris.” On the third morning, the resident was still receiving the 3.5 L per minute oxygen.
The Respiratory Therapist stated that “the nursing staff is responsible for cleaning concentrator filters and ensuring residents were receiving the appropriate amount of oxygen.” A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) confirmed that the resident was to receive 2.0 L per minute.
After entering the resident’s room and checking, the Licensed Practical Nurse confirmed that the resident “was receiving oxygen at a flow rate of 3.5 LPM instead of the 2.0 LPM that was ordered.” After intervention by the surveyor, the LPN confirmed that the resident now “had oxygen set up in her room, and it was applied at 2.0 LPM as ordered.”
