- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies That Prevent Mistreatment, Neglect or Abuse of Residents – citation #F226 date June 15, 2017
- Failure to Provide Necessary Care and Services to Ensure That the Resident’s Highest Well-Being Is Maintained – citation #F309 date June 5, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to implement their abuse prohibition policy and procedures for screening of new hires.” Specifically, a review of five employee personnel files revealed that the criminal background checks for two employees “were not obtained [before] the orientation.” This failure to obtain background checks involved three Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs), two Registered Nurses (RNs), and a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN).
The investigative team reviewed documents and noted that “some of the employee files did not contain the required screening.” The Coordinator stated that “the hire date is the date of orientation [and] that the offer of a job is contingent upon screening to include CBC and licensure/registry verification [before being] hired.”
The facility “failed to obtain orders to treat a known infection for [one resident].” Specifically, a resident’s Urine Analysis/Culture and Sensitive Report indicated a urinary tract infection that requires antibiotic therapy and isolation precautions.”
The resident “did not start treatment until eight days later.” The incident involved a resident who “requires extensive assistance from two for staff for bed mobility and transfers [and] required extensive assistance of one staff for locomotion on-and-off the unit, dressing, eating, and personal hygiene.” The resident was also totally dependent on two staff members for bathing.”
The resident’s Care Plan identified that the resident “had a urinary tract infection, and antibiotics were initiated. Isolation precautions involved an ESBL infection of the urine.” ESBL is Extended Spectrum Beta-lactamases, gram-negative bacteria that can break down commonly used antibiotics. This highly contagious disease requires contact isolation practices to ensure the bacteria does not spread throughout the facility. The effects of this highly contagious infection can be life-threatening.
