According to state surveyors, “the facility failed to ensure a mobility bar to [the resident’s] bed was safely and securely attached.” The surveyors observed the resident’s open bed that revealed “the resident had a mobility bar to the left side of the bed. Observation revealed a 2-inch piece of white tape at the bottom of one side of the bar. The bar was loose, allowing the mobility bar to rotate 180°. The bed was against the wall, and no rail was present to the right side of the bed.”
A facility Registered Nurse (RN) “confirmed the mobility bar to the left side of the resident’s bed was not correctly attached, rotated 180°, and was not secured.” The surveyors documented that “this deficiency as an example of continued noncompliance from the survey dated August 9, 2017.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure [two residents] were offered the pneumococcal immunizations and failed to immunize a resident who requested a pneumococcal immunization.” In one incident, a resident consented to pneumococcal immunization. However, “record review revealed no evidence that the immunization was administered as requested.”
A second resident’s Power of Attorney “refused the influenza vaccine. However, the Vaccine Administration Information Form “did not indicate whether the pneumococcal vaccine had been offered, if [the resident] had previously received the vaccine, or if [the resident’s] Power of Attorney refused the pneumococcal vaccine” on behalf of the resident.
The facility “failed to mean acceptable infection control practices during incontinence care for [a resident] to prevent the spread of infection. The facility also failed to complete an assessment and develop a management program as required.”
