- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect and Mistreatment – citation #F687 date September 28, 2018
The state investigators determined the facility “failed to check the Nurse Aide Registry for [six] staff to ensure they did not have a Federal Indicator (a marker into a potential employee who has committed abuse, neglect, or misappropriation of property against residents).”
Any negative return on the Registry would prohibit “them from working in a certified facility.” The six sampled residents included two Registered Nurses (RNs), a Housekeeper, two Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs), and a Dietary Worker all hired between June 12, 2018, and June 25, 2018.
A review of the employee’s records and files indicated that “none of the employees were checked against the Nursing Assistant Registry to ensure they did not have a Federal Indicator prohibiting them from working in a certified facility.”
In a separate summary statement dated August 11, 2017, the facility “failed to ensure the State agency was notified of a major injury within the mandated two-hour period.” A review of a resident’s Nursing Note revealed that the nurse was “notified at 8:05 PM, on August 3, 2017, that the resident had fallen in the bathroom.”
As a result of the fall, the “resident was noted with a quarter-sized laceration on his/her left cheek; the resident’s Physician was notified; 911 was called, and the resident was transferred to the emergency room for evaluation and treatment.”
At midnight, the Charge Nurse “called the emergency room and was notified that the resident had been admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), and the Nursing Supervisor was notified of the ICU admission.”
The Fall Investigation Summary dated August 9, 2017, revealed that the resident had fallen at 8:05 PM and that the Charge Nurse reported the incident to the House Supervisor at that time.” The documentation shows that the Director of Nursing was notified of the fall the following morning at 7:23 AM.”
By 1:21 PM the day following the fall, the Admissions Coordinator notified the Director of Nursing “that the resident [had developed] a subdermal hematoma (a pool of blood between the brain and its outermost covering) that was evacuated (the removal of any material from the body by discharge through a natural or artificial passage).”
