- Failure to Keep Every Resident Free from Medications or Devices That Restrained Them, Unless Need for Medical Treatment – citation #F222 date October 23, 2017
- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date October 23, 2017
According to state investigators, “the facility failed to obtain a Physician’s orders for the use of [a device used as a restraint].” The severely, cognitively impaired resident involved in the investigation used a PEG tube as a means of feeding.
The survey team reviewed the resident’s clinical record that described the resident as requiring “the use of a mitten on her left hand to prevent the resident from tampering with her PEG tube.” The survey team observed the resident “wearing the mitten on her left hand, and this observation was confirmed by [a staff member].”
However, a review of Physician’s orders “did not reveal a Physician’s order for the use of [the mitten].” The staff member confirmed that “there were no Physician’s orders for the mitten and that a consent form had not been obtained for the use of the mitten.” Additionally, the facility failed to provide any assessment completed for the need and use of a physical restraint without confirmation of the resident or the resident’s representative.
The nursing home “failed to conduct complete and thorough investigations into an injury of unknown origin and an allegation of verbal abuse to rule out possible abuse/neglect for two residents.”
In one case, a resident’s Progress Note revealed that the resident was “observed sitting in the dining room in her wheelchair with other residents.” The resident was “noted to have a swollen right hand.” The resident was “unable to tell how her hand became swollen.”
As a part of the investigation, an employee interviewed the resident who “was unable to explain how her hand became swollen or provide answers to such questions as ‘did you fall” or did someone hurt you or try to hurt you?’”
The nursing staff received an order for an x-ray “of the entire right arm and shoulder. The x-ray revealed a mildly displaced fracture of the distal humerus (bone in the upper arm).”
During the investigation, an employee who provided care for a resident who was already in bed stated that they had “used a flat bedpan and rolled the resident. However, she said, “she did not have to pull any of the resident’s extremities to put her on the bedpan.” But, a visitor gave a witness statement saying that “the nurse grabbed [the resident’s] shoulder to put her on the bedpan. Afterward, her [the resident] arm was hurting her, and she was rubbing it for her.”
