- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date June 23, 2016
- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – date November 22, 2017
According to state investigators, “the facility did not ensure that timely investigations and the reporting of incidents were completed for [five residents].” Specifically, for one resident, “a medication error report was not started when the Physician order nutritional supplement Ensure was not started.”
For another resident, “a medication error report or investigation was not completed when [the medication] dosing was inappropriate on two occasions when the patch was missing.” For a third resident, “a medication error report or investigation was not completed when [their medication] was missing from the resident’s supply.”
For a fourth resident, “a medication error report or investigation was not completed when [a medication patch] was placed before it was due or when the patch was missing from the resident’s body.” For a fifth resident, “the facility did not provide evidence of a thorough investigation after an incident alleging that a Registered Nurse (RN) grabbed the arm of the resident and spoke to her in a loud voice.”
The surveyors and investigators determined “the facility did not conduct a minimum required background checks on new employees when the facility hired for employees reviewed without knowledge of the result of the required state Nurses Aide Registry check. This [failure] is a repeat deficiency from the recertification survey.”
The state surveyors determined “that the environment was not free from accident hazards over which the facility has control. The resident environment is to remain as free from accident hazards as possible. Specifically, construction areas were not safe while unattended.”
The surveyors interviewed the facility Administrator who stated that “outside contractor construction workers had been on-site replacing the bathroom suspended ceiling tiles in [a resident’s room].” The construction workers “were removed from the job by a government labor agency before installing new ceiling tiles, leaving eight [ceiling areas] with bare framing.”
The Administrator stated that an incident occurred in a resident’s room when “a piece of the ceiling framing had fallen” and the resident was “concerned with being injured.”
