- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date March 22, 2019
- Failure to Provide and Implement an Infection Protection and Control Program – citation #F880 date March 22, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to provide padded side rails for [two residents].” This “deficient practice places a resident at risk for an accident and injury while in bed.”
One severely cognitively impaired resident was admitted to the facility with “involuntary body shaking and dysphagia (difficulty in swallowing)” who requires “extensive assistance with activities of daily living.” The resident was observed in bed during an initial tour of the facility “with bilateral side rails without padding.” Three days later, the resident was observed asleep in the room in bed with “bilateral side rails up and no padding on the side rails.” A Registered Nurse (RN) stated that “padded side rails should have been installed per Physician’s orders to prevent injury.”
The “facility failed to ensure one staff member used Personal Protective Equipment (PPE protection clothing, helmets, goggles, or other garments or equipment designed to protect the wearer’s body from injury or infection) properly to meet professional standards.”
Surveyors determined that “this deficient practice had the potential to spread infection and transmission of communicable diseases.” The nursing home also failed to ensure that “infection control practices were maintained for a peripheral intravenous (IV) access for [one resident].” This “deficient practice placed the resident at risk for infection.”
A Registered Nurse (RN) stated that the resident had no Care Plan for their IV access and that the nurse was unaware that the IV had been in place for seven days. A review of the facility’s policy and procedures titled: Guidelines for Preventing Intravenous Catheter-Related Infections from August 2014, reads in part:
“If an IV access is left in place longer than ninety-six hours (four days), a Physician’s order should be obtained and documented [with] a rationale for leaving the catheter in place due to increased risk of infection.”
