- Failure to Provide Appropriate Treatment and Cares According to Orders, Resident’s Preferences and Goals – citation #F684 date July 3, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to provide care and treatment services [according to] professional standards of practice for [two residents].”
The surveyors observed a resident who “had a contracture of his right and left foot with no splints noted to be in place. The resident was observed to be wearing regular socks on both feet.” Additionally, the resident “was seated in a wheelchair that appeared to be too large for him and appeared as if he would fall out when leaning forward.”
At that time, the surveyors observed “a second wheelchair part of the resident’s room that appears to be customized to fit the resident with a handwritten sign that documented ‘Out of Order.’” The resident told the surveyors that “he was currently using a loaner wheelchair and that his wheelchair was expensive, and it was broken, and no one had looked at it.”
The resident reported that “a loner chair was uncomfortable and that the cushion that he sat on in the loner chair was garbage.” The surveyors reviewed an Order Summary Report from the Physician indicating that the staff was to provide the resident “spacers to the left foot while out of bed.” The spacers were to be removed when the resident was being showered, and the resident was to have a ROHO cushion in the wheelchair.
However, an interview with the Rehab Director revealed that “we do not use ROHO because it puts a resident at risk because it has to be monitored every day for a period. She reported that she was told by the corporate office that they do not use ROHO cushions [and that] she did not consult with a hospital who ordered the use of the ROHO cushion.”
The Director reported that “the facility had the policy to provide a similar cushion but was not sure if the policy was written.” The Director said that “there was no documentation that would indicate that the Medical Director changed the order for the cushion.” The acting Director of Nursing reported that “there are pressure-relieving mattresses in the building and that they are monitored by nursing, and that the facility had the ability to monitor the ROHO cushion.”
