- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date February 28, 2017
- Failure to Provide Appropriate Care for Residents Who Are Incontinent of Bowel and Bladder to Prevent Urinary Tract Infections – citation #F690 date May 15, 2018
According to state surveyors, “the facility did not ensure [one resident] reviewed for a possible allegation of abuse/neglect had their investigation sent to the State agency [promptly].” The incident involved a resident who “fell out of bed while [a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)] provided care and a bed change.”
The CNA “did not have another staff member assisting as per the care plan. The immediate reporting to the State agency was sent several days after the discovery of the incident.” Subsequently, the facility investigated the fall.
The medical records indicate that the resident “sustained a fall on February 1, 2017, resulting in a left tibia fracture.” The self-report revealed that the CNA “was providing care in a bed change for [the resident when the resident] slid off the mattress onto the floor. The investigation interviewed [the CNA and the CNA] did a return demonstration which indicated [the resident] was lying on her right side and [the CNA] was standing slightly toward the foot of the bed changing the betting when [the resident] slid off.”
The CNA stated they attempted to block the resident from falling. The surveyors say that the immediate reporting to the State agency concerning the “alleged resident neglect was not done until February 6, 2017” five days after the incident occurred.
The nursing home “did not ensure that residents who are incontinent of and bladder receive the appropriate treatment and services to maintain incontinence as much as possible.” On May 10, 2018, a resident stated to the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) that “he needed to urinate and was not offered the urinal as indicated on his care plan.”
The survey team interviewed the resident who stated that while lying in bed, “he needed to pee. His call light was in his left hand, but he was not sure what to do. The surveyor instructed him to push the button for help.” A CNA brought the resident their breakfast tray to the room and stated, “your call light is on, what do you need?”
The resident responded, “I need to get up and go to work.” However, the resident did not state that they needed to use the bathroom. The surveyor told the CNA the resident needed to use the restroom. At that time, the CNA responded with “okay, and left the room.”
The resident stated to the surveyor that he had urinated on himself. When the CNA return with another CNA, they never asked, “if he needed to use the urinal.”
