- Failure to Keep Every Resident Free from Physical Restraints Unless Need for Medical Treatment – citation #F221 date April 7, 2017
- Failure to Develop Programs That Investigate, Control and Keep Infections from Spreading – citation #F441 date September 7, 2017
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to obtain doctor’s orders and develop a Plan of Care for the bed side rails up for [two residents].” This “failure had the potential for seclusion and decreased functional mobility that affected residents.”
The state surveyors observed both residents. One resident “was in his bed with full side rails up.” The other resident “was sitting on her wheelchair with a lap belt.” The resident in bed stated, “I do not need this.” The resident in the wheelchair said, “I cannot remove this by myself.”
The survey team interviewed a Licensed Vocational Nurse who confirmed that “the bed side rails up for [one resident] and the other resident’s lap belt had no doctor’s orders or Care Plan” as required by law.
The facility “failed to maintain infection control policies and procedures for [two residents] when a CNA plus went between two isolation rooms without washing his hands or using Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).”
The state investigators determined that this failure “had the potential for cross-contamination of harmful bacteria by exposing an already compromised population to harmful bacteria” in the facility. The surveyors observed the CNA “walking into an isolation room to care for [a highly contagious resident] without wearing any personal protective equipment (PPE – gown, gloves, or mask)” and came into contact with the resident.
The CNA then left that resident’s room “without washing his hands and went immediately into the second isolation room without applying PPE to care for [the second resident].” This failure was confirmed through visual observation by a Registered Nurse (RN).
