The nursing home “failed to protect four residents from neglect, which resulted in actual harm and an Immediate Jeopardy for two residents.”
The investigators reviewed the resident’s clinical record written by a licensed nurse. The documentation shows that the resident was found lying on the floor in front of a Hoyer lift.” A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) said that the resident “slid out of the sling and fell to the floor.”
The nursing staff made the Medical Doctor and the resident’s husband aware and dialed 911. Documentation shows that there was an abrasion to the right shoulder; the resident’s back was red.
The facility “failed to provide adequate monitoring and supervision for [two residents]. The deficient practice by the nursing staff “resulted in actual harm to one resident.”
A review of a resident’s electronic Medical Records indicated that the resident had “twisted his left leg while being transferred from his bed to the wheelchair by a Nurse Aide [instead of two persons as required].” The documentation shows that the Nurse Aide pulled the wheelchair back when the resident called out “My leg, my leg!” The nurse repositioned the resident’s leg.
The Nurse Aide wrote in a statement that she had gotten the resident ready to go to the shower and occupational therapy and placed the wheelchair next to the bed and the walker in front of the resident. When assisting the resident up to pivot, the resident “did not say anything except ‘pain,’ then she pushed the wheelchair into the hall, and the footrest was not on the wheelchair.”
According to state surveyors, “the facility failed to complete a thorough criminal background check [before] employment to prevent resident abuse and neglect.” The state survey team reviewed an employee’s file that revealed that the “employee had not resided in the state of Pennsylvania for the past two consecutive years.”
The employee’s file documented that a letter from the Pennsylvania Department of Aging and Federal Bureau of Investigation criminal background check was mailed to the employee to be filled out with information.” However, “there was no evidence [in the file] that the required result of the FBI criminal background check had been given to the facility by the employee.”
