- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date March 16, 2017
- Failure to Provide Necessary Care and Services to Maintain the Resident’s Highest Well-Being – citation #F309 date May 27, 2016
According to state investigators, “the facility failed to provide the necessary supervision to prevent falls and consistently identify or implement interventions to prevent falls.” The deficient practice by the nursing staff resulted in harm for a resident.”
Documentation shows that the resident “had five falls from September 3, 2016, through December 17, 2016. The fall on November 13, 2016, resulted in a right hip fracture, which required surgery.” At the time of the survey, the facility “identified an additional thirteen residents with falls.”
A second incident resulted in harm for a different resident with Physician’s ordered therapeutic diet of “nectar thickened liquids.” The resident suffered serious harm when “facility staff provided the resident with chocolate candy. This resident experienced an episode of choking and respiratory distress.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure [as needed] pain medication was administered [before] pressure ulcer treatments.” The deficient practice “resulted in the resident being in severe pain during the treatments.”
A review of the resident’s Data Collection Form Assessment dated March 10, 2016, and March 21, 2016, noted that the “resident had a stage I ulcer to the left lower out her leg and a stage I ulcer to the left outer ankle. Two areas on top of the left foot and one area on top of the right foot were described as circular, red areas, stage I, darkened areas and the center top of the left foot.”
The resident’s Care Plan dated April 1, 2016, noted that the resident “had an alteration in pain and comfort related to ulcers and decubitus [wounds].” The “goal documented that pain would be relieved within thirty minutes of intervention” after assessing the resident for pain.
In one observation, a Certified Medical Aide was asked by the resident to provide pain medication thirty minutes before the treatment. However, the resident had already been medicated, although the drugs had not alleviated discomfort.
Instead of providing the resident with additional pain medication, the Certified Medical Aide stated that “she was waiting until 2:00 PM, due to that she could not give medication until six hours after the routine medication.” However, the Director of Nursing stated that “there was an ‘as needed’ pain medication that could have been given.”
