The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to provide assistance for toileting for [one resident] reviewed for incontinence care.” The investigation involved a severely, cognitively impaired resident whose medical record and Nurse Summary Report revealed the resident “did not have any excoriation or pressure ulcers.”
The state investigators observed the resident just before noon on April 17, 2017, in the resident’s room. At that time, there was “a strong odor present.” The following morning at 9:03 AM the investigators observed and interviewed the resident in the resident’s room. At that time, “[the resident] was lying in bed and a strong odor was present.” The interview revealed “she had urinated, and the staff rolled up a blanket and placed it between [the resident’s] upper thighs.”
During the interview it was revealed that “the nurses [placed the rolled-up blanket between her legs] to catch the urine.” During an interview with the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) it was revealed that there was “a strong odor of urine.” The Director of Nursing confirmed “the strong odor was urine and the rolled-up blanket was not to be used.” The Director also confirmed that “the facility failed to provide activities of daily living care for [the resident] and failed to follow facility policy.”
The facility “failed to ensure Physician ordered pain medication was available for [one resident] in patient-controlled medications” using a pump to administer their own pain medication. Additionally, the facility’s failure “to ensure the pain medication was available on two occasions between May 4, 2018, and May 7, 2018, resulted in an increase in pain and harm to [the resident].”
