- Failure to Provide and Implement an Infection Protection and Control Program – citation #F880 date March 15, 2018
- Failure to Honor a Resident’s Right to a Safe, Clean, Comfortable and Homelike Environment – citation #F584 date April 25, 2019
- Failure to Provide Care and Assistance to Perform Activities of Daily Living for Any Resident Who Was Unable – citation #F677 date April 25, 2019
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to ensure [two] commercial dryers were free of dried rust-like material.” The facility also “failed to follow infection control standards [as evidenced] by the failure to follow contact precautions for [one resident” with the highly contagious infection.”
Also, the facility “failed to disconnect unused PICC lines (a Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter, which is a means for administering intravenous medications) to prevent possible infection [for two residents].” The nursing home also “failed to discontinue a PICC line using a sterile technique” on one resident.
The nursing home “failed to provide housekeeping and maintenance services necessary to maintain a sanitary, orderly, and comfortable environment.” The state investigative team conducted an environmental tour of the facility on April 22, 2019, at 2:00 PM with the Director of Housekeeping.
The surveyors documented broken closet doors, nightstands in disrepair, and floor strip plates missing from numerous rooms’ entrance doors causing potential trip hazards and heavily soiled ceiling air intake vents.
The facility “failed to provide proper oral/denture care for [one resident] that resulted in unclean dentures.” Observations were made of the resident’s “denture cup in the bathroom in a cup with fluid. The dentures were black around the edges and some of the teeth, and most of the normally pink gum line from about halfway on each side [appeared blackened] to the back of the dentures.”
The resident confirmed by shaking his head up and down that he cleaned his own dentures by stating, “uh-huh.” The resident “gave the same non-descriptive answer to all of the surveyor’s questions.”
During an interview with a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) who is very familiar with the resident, it was explained that the resident “was the first person she gets up in the morning.” The CNA said that the resident “was able to clean his teeth by himself [and clarified that the resident] can put his dentures in and out of his mouth, but she is responsible for cleaning them.” The CNA confirmed that the dentures “were not real clean.”
