- Failure to Provide and Implement an Infection Protection and Control Program – citation #F880 date June 21, 2018
- Failure to Ensure a Resident’s Well-Being – citation #F490 date August 30, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to provide a sanitary environment to protect the potential transmission of communicable diseases during two medication pass observations.” The survey team observed a medication pass conducted by a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) who administered medications to a resident.
During that medication pass, when the staff member was finished, the LPN “did not wash their hands or use hand sanitizers before going on to prepare and administer medications to [a second resident].” The staff member confirmed that they “did not wash her hands or use hand sanitizers between residents’ medication administration.”
Failure to Ensure Services Provided by the Nursing Facility Meet Professional Standards of Quality – citation #F281 date August 30, 2017
The nursing home “failed to ensure that medication administration for narcotics was properly documented for [one resident].” The facility also “failed to have an indication for medication administration and failed to document the effectiveness of ‘as needed’ pain medications for three residents.”
A review of a resident’s medical records and medication records indicated that the staff members failed to document that the narcotic medication was administered on numerous occasions. In another incident, a separate resident’s documentation failed to show the effectiveness of the pain medications on numerous occasions between August 2, 2017, and August 27, 2017.
The Unit Manager “confirmed that there was no documented evidence of the effectiveness of these pain medication doses.” In another incident, a third resident’s Nurse’s Medication Notes revealed that the resident “received Tylenol on the following dates with no documentation of the effectiveness of the pain medication: [July 15, 2017, and August 2, 2017].
The facility “failed to obtain the psychosocial well-being of the facility residents. The findings included a review of the facility’s Resident Council Meeting Minutes and interviews with family members. Documentations and interviews show that the “facility administration failed to attain the psychosocial well-being of the facility residents.”
The facility Administrator revealed that they were “not aware of the Resident Council Resident handwritten note” indicating “a refusal to sign the minutes as written. The Resident Council President reported that the minutes had been changed and much of the residents’ concern information was removed from the original minutes.
