The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to thoroughly investigate and report [timely] an injury of unknown origin to the Licensing and Certification Agency.” This “deficient practice had the potential to put the resident’s safety at risk.”
The state investigative team reviewed the resident’s Clinical Record, indicating that the patient “sustained an abrasion (area damage by scraping or wearing away) to his forehead” at 9:15 PM. The resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment shows that the resident “had limited ability to make concrete requests and responded adequately to simple and direct communication only.” The resident’s “vision was highly impaired.”
The document shows that the resident requires extensive assistance “in bed mobility, transfers, walking in the room, walking in the corridors, dressing and personal hygiene.” A review of the resident’s SBAR (Situation, Background, Assessment, Recommendation) shows that the resident was noted with an “abrasion on the forehead. The resident was unable to recall what happened and how he sustained the abrasion on his forehead.”
The facility Director of Nursing stated that the incident “happened before she started working at the facility” but that the event “was unwitnessed and is considered an injury of unknown origin and should have been reported to the Department of Public Health for an investigation.” The Director indicated that “there was no documented evidence that the facility fully investigated the incident.”
The facility “failed to provide the necessary care and services to [one resident] and the facility staff failed to accurately assess, monitor, and document [a resident’s] rashes. This deficient practice had the potential to result in worsening of the resident’s rashes.”
The resident’s Skin Condition Record indicated that there were scratch marks and small red bumps on the chest area. The resident stated during an interview that “she had been itching even before she was admitted to the facility [and said that] she felt like there were bugs all over her arms and back.”
