- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date April 13, 2018
- Failure to Immediately Notify the Resident, the Resident’s Doctor or Family Members of a Change in the Resident’s Condition Including a Decline in Their Health or Injury – citation #F157 date February 28, 2017
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to ensure the residents’ environment was free from accident hazards as possible for [two residents] reviewed for the care area of the accidents.” Two of the residents “had potentially hazardous items on their fall mats.”
In one case, a resident had an order initiated on October 26, 2017, “for bilateral floor mats.” The resident “experienced a fall from her bed on December 2, 2017.” The surveyors observed the resident environment on April 9, 2018 and found “a trash can sitting on the right floor mat and a bedside table on the left floor mat.
The surveyors show the Director of Nursing the trash can “on the right floor mat and the bedside table in the left floor mat” that were “immediately removed.”
The surveyors then observed the second resident and found “the resident in bed, sleeping. No staff was present in the resident’s room. The bed was in a low position. Fall mats were on each side of the bed. The over-the-bed table was parked on the fall mat to the residents left side.”
A Registered Nurse (RN) confirmed the “over the bed table should not be sitting on the fall mat. She said the staff probably forgot to move the table after the resident had breakfast.”
The nursing home “failed to notify the Physician or the resident’s legal representative of a change in medical condition.” For one resident, “the facility failed to notify the Physician of the resident’s high glucose results (over 400) on multiple occasions. If the Physician is not notified of the resident’s high glucose results, they cannot evaluate a further medical intervention is needed or make decisions regarding treatment.”
For a second resident, “the facility failed to properly notify the resident’s legal representative on two occasions when medication changes were made in his drug regimen.”
