- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect, and Mistreatment – citation date December 14, 2018
- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation date December 14, 2018
According to state investigators, “the facility failed to implement Abuse Prohibition Procedures for fully screening one employee [to ensure] eligibility for employment in long-term care or a nursing facility.”
The survey team reviewed an employee’s personnel files that revealed that the Nursing Aide had indicated that “she had three previous employers. There was no evidence that the facility had contacted any of the previous employers to screen the employee and ensure the employee was eligible for employment in a long-term care nursing facility.”
The nursing home “failed to provide the necessary supervision and implement effective safety interventions to assure residents their environment remained as free from potential accident hazards as possible.” The nursing home failed to ensure the prevention of “ingestion of foreign substances, which compromised the resident’s health and required medical intervention at an acute care facility.”
The nursing home failed to act to “deter intrusive wandering and prevent resident altercations.” In one incident, a Facility Incident Report revealed that staff had observed a resident “in the dining room eating a tea bag. Visual inspection of the resident’s oral cavity revealed no remnants of the tea bag.”
In a separate incident, another Nurse’s Note documented that “the Physician and responsible party were notified of plastic removal.” The documentation revealed that “while doing incontinence care on the resident, a 15.0 cm x 15.0 cm piece of plastic was pulled from the resident’s rectum. The resident was noted to be yelling out [before] the care and calmed down after the plastic was removed.”
Further review of the clinical record “revealed no documented evidence that the facility completed an investigation to determine how the resident, who required supervision, was able to obtain and ingest [the piece of plastic] without staff knowledge.”
