- Failure to Develop and Implement a Complete Care Plan That Meets All the Resident’s Needs – citation #F6568 date December 17, 2018
- Failure to Provide and Implement an Infection Protection and Control Program – citation date December 17, 2018
According to state surveyors, “the facility failed to develop and implement comprehensive, person-center care plans for [three of twenty-one] residents.” A review of one resident’s Care Plan indicated that the resident “exhibits other behavioral symptoms not directed toward others such as hitting or scratching [themselves], pacing, rummaging, public sexual acts, disrobing in public, throwing or smearing food or bodily wastes, verbal/vocal symptoms such as screaming, disruptive sounds.”
However, “there were no care plans to address behaviors directed toward others.” Also, a review of the Behavior Documentation provided by the Senior Director of Nursing Consultant indicates that on December 5, 2018, the resident “was upset because a urinary catheter could not be removed and yelled at a nurse.” A days later, on December 13, 2018, a Mood Behavior Communication document indicated that the resident “yelled at of Physical Therapist, ‘No, go away,’ after being asked to wheel himself to therapy.” Later that morning, the resident “yelled at an Occupational Therapist who tried to take him to therapy, after he had declined to go.”
The surveyors noted that there was “no other behavioral documentation noted in the resident’s record.” As a result, the investigators interviewed the Assistant Director Nursing who indicated that the resident’s [inappropriate] behavior was taking food off the food cart. The resident did not have any other behaviors that were listed on the care plan.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure appropriate hand hygiene [was performed]during medication administration for four of five residents observed for medication administration.” Also, the nursing home “failed to use proper hand hygiene while assisting residents to eat.” The facility also “failed to properly store a nebulizer mask when not in use.”
The Unit Manager, Respiratory Therapist and Senior Director of Nursing all verified that the nebulizer mask “should be stored in the bag when not used.” The Director also stated that a hand-held nebulizer treatment “shall be administered by licensed/qualified personnel as per Physician’s orders.”
