The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to put an effective plan in place to prevent [one resident] who smoked from smoking inside the building .” The deficient practice by the nursing staff “placed [the resident] and all other residents in the facility at risk of the facility catching on fire.”
The state investigators determined an Immediate Jeopardy began on March 8, 2018, when the resident “was caught a second time smoking in his room.” Nursing Notes revealed that the resident “continued to exhibit evidence of smoking in the facility, via smoke smells and having smoking materials on his person.”
The “facility failed to bag soiled linen in the resident’s room.” The nursing home also failed to “disinfect the top of the soiled linen container and failed to dispose of a soiled disposable brief, by placing it on top of the geriatric chair and leaving the geriatric chair out in the hallway.”
The nursing staff also “failed to sanitize the contaminated geriatric chair.” The surveyors observed a Nursing Assistant exiting the room to “retrieve a linen container from the soiled utility and place the soiled linen container outside [the room].” The Nurse Aide then retrieved and linen bag and left it “on top of the soiled linen container and walked up the hall.”
The soiled linen had stool that “ leaked out onto the lid of the linen container.” The Assistant “returned to the linen container and observed the stool on top of the soiled linen container. [The Nursing Assistant] retrieved a pre-moistened cloth from the bedside chest of [the resident] and wiped the stool off the top of the linen container and walked up the hall again.”
