- Failure to Respond Appropriately to All Alleged Violations – citation #F610 date November 26, 2018
The state investigators determined “the facility failed to implement their Abuse or Neglect Policy and Procedures for [one resident] reviewed for investigation of incidents.” This deficient practice involved a failure to report it to the state log and the completion of a thorough investigation.
The failure by the nursing staff “placed residents at risk of abuse or neglect and ongoing risk of injury.” In one case, the resident was admitted to the facility after a surgical repair of a broken bone. The resident’s Medical Records revealed that the resident was re-hospitalized [for] completion of a left hemiarthroplasty procedure that replaces one half of the hip joint with a prosthetic while leaving the other half intact.”
The Occupational Therapy Note dated October 1, 2018, revealed, “the therapist noted a discrepancy in [the resident’s] leg length and severe left hip pain. An appointment was scheduled with the resident’s orthopedic surgeon” for the following day.
However, an x-ray of the left hip completed the following day showed “a broken bone that occurs around the implants of a hip replacement.” The facility was informed in the resident was readmitted to the hospital for surgery.
Though, there was no reporting in the facility’s reporting log and no entry made after the discovery had been identified on October 2, 2018. Additionally, there was “no call to the State hotline.” This failure was verified by the Regional Director of the facility who stated that “an investigation had not been completed for [the resident’s injury] detected October 2, 2018.”
The Director of Nursing Services acknowledged that “an investigation should have been completed and the [injury or medical condition] should have been entered into the facility state reporting log.”
