According to the state surveyors, “the facility did not ensure that the services provided by nursing personnel met the professional standards of quality.” The investigation involved a resident who “had an unwitnessed fall and complained of head and hip pain.”
The resident “had a large bump on the front of her for head and also on the back of her head.” Two Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) assess the resident even though and Registered Nurse (RN) was in the facility. The resident “had a pillow placed under her head by a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) for comfort. The local non-emergency ambulance service was called to transport [the resident] to the hospital.”
The survey team asked the Director of Nursing if the Registered Nurse “should have been consulted for an assessment” after the resident suffered an injury to the head. The Director replied, “Yes, right away” indicating that the RN was in the building and that they [the Director] had been called.
The nursing home “did not ensure all alleged violations involving abuse, neglect or mistreatment are reported immediately, or not later than twenty-four hours after the event to the Administrator the facility and other officials including the State survey agency.”
The investigation involved three residents who “reported an allegation regarding [a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)] on August 24, 2018.” This “allegation was not reported to the State agency.” In one incident, the survey team interviewed a resident regarding the facility staff who indicated “there is one CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) that [she] and her roommate reported as being very rough and someone in another room reported this CNA as well.”
