- Failure to Ensure That a Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent – citation– citation #F689 date May 29, 2018
According to state investigators, “the facility failed to maintain railing, ramps and fire blanket storage boxes, thus presenting a potential hazard to residents. This [failure] had the potential to [affect nine residents] who currently smoke at the facility.”
The survey team observed the facility smoking area and walkway to the smoking area. Then noticed the “railing around the smoke area was rusted through on the bottom beside the steel ramp leading to the smoking area. The railing was very unstable and would sway with the slightest touch. The railing pillars were rusted completely through the were no longer attached to the cement. This was the only handrail available in this area and by the ramp.”
The surveyors observed, “a red metal box containing a fire blanket in the smoking area [that] was rusted through on the bottom, and when opened, the fire blanket was stuck to the bottom of the metal box and unable to be used.”
The facility Maintenance Director verified these problems and confirmed: “that these were both potential hazards for residents who would use these areas.” This deficiency “is an incidental finding discovered through the investigation of Complaint Number OH 93.”
In a separate summary statement dated January 19, 2017, the nursing home “failed to ensure side rails to the resident's bed fit properly to avoid a potential safety concern.” This failure affected three residents at the facility.
In one case, surveyors observed a “loose side rail to the right side of [a resident’s] bed, which had a piece of plywood attached the bottom of the side rail and placed underneath the mattress.” At that time, there was no longer side rail to the resident's bed.”
The survey team interviewed the Maintenance Director who revealed that the resident’s “side rail was removed from her bed due to the bolts being stripped, which made the side rails loose and not fitting the bed properly.” The Director “voiced he had replaced the side rail [on January 18, 2017].” A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) revealed that the resident “used her side rails for turning and repositioning.”
