- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Acts or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date November 2, 2017
- Failure to Immediately Notify the Resident’s Doctor or Responsible Party of a Change in the Resident’s Condition Including a Decline in Their Health or Injury – citation #F580 date August 22, 2018
The nursing home “failed to immediately report alleged mistreatment and possible improper restraint of a resident.” This deficient practice done by the nursing staff affected one resident “reviewed for possible abuse and mistreatment.”
The surveyors attempted to interview the resident who “was confused and not able to answer questions.” The investigation included a statement by in State-Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA) working in the 200 Hallway when “she heard a loud scream on the 300 Hallway, which was the locked Special Care Unit of the facility.”
The STNA “stated she went to the 300 Hallway and [saw a resident] sitting in her wheelchair, in the common area, with a pink and white gait belt wrapped around the resident all the way to the back of the wheelchair. She stated the buckle was in the back of the wheelchair, out of reach of the resident [saying] the resident was restrained to the wheelchair and was trying to get up, which is why the resident was screaming.”
The STNA “stated she again saw [the resident] restrained in her wheelchair on a separate dining area on the 300 Hallway [but] did not report the incident to any staff member.”
According to investigators, “the facility failed to timely notify the Physician of a resident’s change in condition which resulted in a delay of treatment.” The investigators reviewed the resident’s Physician Note the documented that the Physician “was in to see the [resident] and new orders were received to address” a medical condition to the bilateral lower leg.
The investigator stated that there “lacked any documentation of when notification occurred for him to see the resident.” The surveyors interviewed a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) who revealed that she did not remember the resident “having any shortness of breath or chest pain. She also verified she is unable to remember if she notified the Physician when [the resident’s medical condition] began after admission.”
The Director of Nursing “verified that there was no documentation of [the resident’s] Physician being notified” concerning the resident’s medical conditions in her leg. The Director verified that “the Physician did not see the resident until February 1, 2018” to address her condition. This “deficiency substantiates” Complaint Number OH 460.
