The Johnson County neglect attorneys at Nursing Home Law Center have found serious deficiencies and safety concerns at Mountain Manor of Paintsville Nursing Center that include:
- Failure to Immediately Notify the Resident, the Resident’s Doctor or Family Members of a Change in the Resident’s Condition Including a Decline in Their Health or Injury – citation date March 7, 2018
- Failure to Provide Basic Life Support Including Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) before the Arrival of Emergency Medical Personnel – citation date March 7, 2018
According to surveyors, the facility failed to “notify the Physician of a change in condition and the need to alter treatment” for five residents. In one case, the resident sustained a fall “which resulted in a laceration above the left side and a subdermal hematoma. However, the facility failed to notify [the resident’s] Physician of the fall or injury.”
In a second incident, another resident “was assessed by staff to have low blood pressure, pale skin, and labored breathing at approximately 3:45 PM. Subsequently, [the resident] expired at the hospital” after being transferred. The surveyors interviewed the resident’s Physician who revealed that the facility “failed to notify him that [the deceased resident] had fallen, had a change in condition” and that “the Physician was never notified of the resident’s death.”
The survey team initiated an investigation after it was determined that “the facility failed to provide basic life support to a resident requiring emergency care [before] the arrival of emergency medical personnel.”
The incident involved the resident documented above who had “low blood pressure, pale skin, labored breathing. However, the facility failed to continue to assess the resident and provide basic life support and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) if needed. Further, the facility failed to activate emergency medical services until fifty-three minutes after the resident’s decline. When EMS arrived, [the resident] had no pulse and was not breathing and expired at the hospital.”
The facility’s failure “to ensure residents receive basic life support has caused or is likely to cause serious injury, harm, impairment, or death to a resident.” The investigators initiated an Immediate Jeopardy after identification over an incident that could harm others in the facility.
