The state investigators determined that the nursing home "failed to develop a baseline Care Plan for [a resident], to provide effective person-centered care of the resident to meet professional standards of quality care."
The state investigators reviewed the resident's medical records, dated May 10, 2019, and found a Nursing Note indicating that the resident had a fall. The note indicated the resident was "walking with staff and reached for her wheelchair, lost [their] balance, and started to fall." The "staff member helped the resident to the floor."
The "facility failed to develop a comprehensive, person-centered Care Plan for each resident, including the measurable objectives and time frames to meet the resident's medical, nursing, mental, and psychosocial needs identified in the comprehensive assessment."
A review of the resident's medical records, noted in the above citation, found that she was assessed for being at "risk for falls." However, the resident's current Care Plan "found no focus statement, goal, or intervention that indicated [that the resident] was an extensive assist of two staff members and that the use of a gait belt was required."
The nursing home "failed to provide an environment free of accident hazards." Specifically, "the facility failed to supervise smoking for [an oxygen-dependent] resident."

State investigators determined that an Immediate Jeopardy situation occurred after allowing an oxygen-dependent resident "to go outside and smoke unsupervised. No safe smoking assessment was completed."
