According to state investigators, “the facility failed to initiate an investigation of an injury of unknown origin.” The state surveyors interviewed a resident’s family member on December 18, 2018 and noted that “there was a Band-Aid on [the resident’s] left ring finger.”
The resident stated that they “did not know why the Band-Aid was there or when it was placed there, as he/she was unaware of any incident/injuries.” A Nurse Aide Employee confirmed “the presence of the Band-Aid on [the resident’s] left finger, and they did not know what happened.” A review of the resident’s clinical records “lacked evidence that the injury related to the Band-Aid present on [their] finger had been investigated.”
During an interview with the Assistant Director of Nursing, it was confirmed that “the injury to [the resident’s] left ring finger had not been investigated and were unaware of the Band-Aid presence on his/her finger.” A Registered Nurse (RN) Supervisor confirmed that “there was no investigation regarding how or when [the resident’s] injury had occurred until inquired by the surveyor.” The facility failed to follow established protocols on investigating all injuries of unknown origin.
The nursing home “failed to adequately supervise and maintain a safe environment for residents.” In one case, a resident “accessed the roof through an unsecured second-floor window resulting in the potential for serious harm.”
The surveyors determined that “this failure placed the resident at high risk for injury and resulted in an Immediate Jeopardy Situation.” The documentation shows an employee observed the resident “on the facility’s roof at 3:15 PM until 3:20 PM and the resident then voluntarily re-entered the building to the bathroom window.”
The resident’s clinical records revealed an obsessive-compulsive disorder, a severely depressed mood and unspecified intellectual disabilities that in individuals with a low IQ (below 70) lead to behavioral as well as social problems.” A Psychiatric Progress Note and Certified Registered Nurse Practitioner Progress Note revealed: “the resident to be very agitated with the desire to harm himself and was requesting voluntary psych admission for safety.”
The resident indicated that they “wanted to get people, was upset with the Social Worker and is going to go off, cannot promise not to harm him/herself and others if he/she does not get [their] away.”
