- 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 9, 2016
- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date March 23, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure safety interventions were in place for [one resident].” Specifically, “the facility staff failed to ensure Physician ordered non-skid strips were in place for [the resident].”
The investigation involved a moderately, cognitively impaired resident whose Physician’s Orders Sheet indicated “non-skid strips at the right side of the bed every shift.” A review of the resident’s Comprehensive Care Plan directed the staff to “encourage the resident to wear visual aids as appropriate. Ensure the resident was wearing appropriate footwear when ambulating or mobilizing the wheelchair. Non-skid strips to the floor bedside.”
The state investigators observed the resident on March 9, 2016, where there was “no non-slip strips observed on either side of the bed on the floor.” Five minutes later, the Minimum Data Set Coordinator was asked by the surveyor to “look at the resident’s floor and room. The Coordinator and the surveyor “went to the resident’s room and viewed the floor.” The Coordinator “voiced that there were no non-skin strips on either side of the resident’s bed on the floor, as ordered by the Physician.”
The Administrator, Director of Nursing, and Nurse Consultant “were made aware of a meeting with the survey team” regarding the deficient practice.
The facility “failed to investigate an incident of potential abuse for [one resident].” A witnessed incident of the resident “hitting another resident was not thoroughly investigated by the facility.”
The investigation involved a resident with “short-term and long-term memory problems and moderately impaired cognitive skills.” A review of the resident’s clinical record documented that the resident had hit another resident and that the residents were separated. The form documented that “the resident’s Physician and family were notified of the aggressive behavior.” However, the resident “Clinical Record made no further mention of this incident.”
A review of the resident’s clinical record also stated that “the resident had inappropriate behaviors that included being combative during personal care, being sexually inappropriate with staff, yelling, and refusing care.” The resident was “prescribed or administered antipsychotic medication [every day] for the management of dementia with aggressive behaviors.”
