In some situations, nurses and Nurse’s Aides will assure the family that they follow established standards of care when, in fact, that does not happen.

- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date January 15, 2019
- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date December 27, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure [four residents] were free from neglect, which included but were not limited to, a failure to administer [one resident’s] intravenous (IV, administered into a vein) antibiotics” and a “failure to administer [two other residents’] antibiotics on time.”
These “deficient practices had the potential for worsening infections, adverse effects from infusing the IV antibiotic rate faster than prescribed and for delayed antibiotic administration.” The state investigators initiated a complaint investigation and determined an Immediate Jeopardy situation existed where “the provider’s non-compliance with one or more requirements of participation has caused or is likely to cause serious harm, injury, impairment, or death to a resident.” The Immediate Jeopardy was identified and called on January 9, 2019, at 4:00 PM.”
The facility “failed to provide proper supervision for [one resident] that was not accurately identified as a high risk for elopement (to leave an institution without notice or permission).” As a result, on October 8, 2018, the resident “had successfully eloped, and on October 15, 2018 [seven days later] was brought into a General Acute Care Hospital after being found on the street by a bystander.”
A review of the resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment indicated the resident “had wandered and that behavior of this type occurred one to three days.” A Social Work Progress Note dated October 8, 2018, indicated that the resident’s “family member was unsure if the resident could return home due to a need of supervision.”
A security member stated that the resident “had a tendency to try and wander by the front door [stating that] they would have to redirect [the resident] toward the activities.”
