According to state investigators, “the facility failed to ensure [one resident] was provided with proper supervision during meals services.” The survey team observed the resident receiving a lunch meal on a regular meal tray.
The resident’s ham and cheese sandwich was wrapped in clear plastic on the side of the plate. The resident was observed, “eating and picking the clear plastic out of her mouth.” Further observation revealed that the resident “was eating the sandwich with the clear plastic still on it.”
The resident “continued the use of a fork and knife to cut the wrapped sandwich and try to eat it. The surveyor notified the staff at the time of the observation. Staff was then observed to unwrap the sandwich for the resident’s lunch.”
The surveyors interviewed a licensed nursing staff who “revealed that the sandwich was not unwrapped at the time of delivery of meal and concurred that the resident could have ingested the plastic wrapping.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure that non-pharmacological interventions were attempted [before] the administration of the pain medication.” The surveyors noted that “there was no documented evidence that non-pharmacological interventions were attempted [before] the administration of the narcotic pain medication” on numerous dates.
The facility “failed to use proper infection control during disposing of and storing of soiled linens, storage of oxygen equipment, and during the dining on one of three nursing units.”
In one observation, a mask used for continuous positive airway pressure “was found lying on the floor uncovered still attached to the machine which was on the shelf next to the bed.” Oxygen tubing “was attached to the oxygen concentrator, and the nasal tubing was uncovered, draped over a trash can.”
