- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date November 10, 2016
- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date November 10, 2016
The nursing home “failed to ensure staff used proper techniques to reduce the possibility of accidents and injuries during the use of gait belt transfers, which affected two residents].”
Observations were made of two Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) entering a resident’s room. One CNA “wheeled the resident’s wheelchair next to his/her bed, locked the wheelchair brakes, and placed a gait belt around the resident’s waist.”
At that time, the staff “stood on each side of the resident and lifted the resident with a gait belt. The resident attempted to stand with both knees bent and shaking, then moaned out loud, straightened his/her legs out at an angle, and was unable to bear weight, while the staff carried the resident by the gait belt.”
The staff “sat the resident on the side of the bed and [one CNA] said, ‘that was not that bad, was it?’ The resident replied, ‘it was not that good.’”
During an interview with one CNA, the Nursing Assistant “that the resident should be able to stand and bear for weight with a gait belt transfer.” However, review of the resident’s Care Plan updated on September 21, 2016, revealed “self-care deficit for activities of daily living care and required the assistance of staff or transfers and ambulation.”
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to ensure they checked the Employee Disqualification List (ADL) and the Nurse Aide (NA) Registry [before hiring] two employees.” The surveyors reviewed a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) Employee File with a hire date of January 18, 2016.
However, there was “no documentation to show the Employee Disqualification List had been checked before this date.” A check of the Nurse Aide Registry revealed: “no documentation to show [that the Registry was] checked before the state” that would identify a history of abuse, neglect or mistreatment at a previous place of employment.
