- >Failure to Remedy Past Noncompliance – citation #F698 date September 20, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to assess residents following [medical treatment]. The failure to assess and Monitor a resident [after medical treatment] may result in the staff failing to identify change of the resident status.”
The investigation involved a resident with a right arm fistula, an abnormal connection between a vein and artery. A review of the resident’s records and physician’s orders guided the nursing staff to “obtain vital signs and weight as ordered by the providers.”
However, review forms showed that the staff “failed to consistently complete all portions of [the resident’s post-medical treatment] assessments/vitals in a timely manner. Discrepancies include weight obtained up to three days [before the medical treatment appointment], vital signs obtain before the resident returned from [the treatment center] and vitals obtained up to three hours after he returned.”
- Failure to Provide and Implement an Infection Protection and Control Program – citation date #F880 date September 20, 2018
The facility “failed to follow contact precautions for [one resident].” An observation was made of a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) entering a highly contagious resident’s room “with gloves but no gown. The CNA assisted [the resident] to sit up on the edge of the bed to eat.” The resident “remove the cover two is trained and placed it on the bed.”
The CNA then “remove her gloves and wash her hands with soap and water. She removed the tray cover from the resident’s room and left the potentially contaminated tray in the dining room on the table.” The CNA never performed hand hygiene during the event.
A separate incident on the same day involved the staff nurse who “removed her gloves after changing [the same highly contagious] resident’s incontinence brief. The nurse continued to adjust the resident’s incontinence brief, clothing, and linen after removing her gloves.”
The following morning a third CNA enter the resident’s room “without a gown to obtain vital signs.” The CNA “wiped the shared vitals equipment stand with 5% peroxide wiped after she used the equipment for [the resident]. The CNA “failed to use the appropriate type of wiped to disinfect the equipment.”
On the third day, a fourth staff nurse enter the resident’s room “to perform cares. The nurse failed to wear gloves when handling items from the resident’s bedside table, moving the bedside table, handling the resident’s linens, and touching the handle to the bathroom door."
