- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date September 22, 2016
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to thoroughly investigate a bruise and skin tear of unknown origin [according to] their policy and failed to report to the State Survey Agency for [one resident].”
The investigators reviewed the resident’s Hospice Plan of Care that revealed that the resident was “referred to hospice for Alzheimer’s dementia [with] thin and fragile skin, which bruises easily, muscle wasting and limited endurance.” The document also shows that the resident has short-term and long-term memory problems, rarely or never understands others, and has no speech.
The resident has “very fragile/thin skin which tears easily” and the staff is required to use a Hoyer lift for transfers and to “monitor the resident for hitting hands on the table and wall causing discoloration.” The document shows that the resident is “to wear protective sleeves in the wheelchair to prevent discoloration of arms.”
The investigators interviewed a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), who stated that they provided the resident care during the day shift including on July 31, 2016. At that time, the resident had on sleeves that “consequently did not incur any skin tears on [the resident’s] arms under [that CNAs] care.” The CNA stated that the resident tended to “become combative with two-person transfers, but not to the point that he/she would get injured.”
A different CNA was interviewed and stated that they had not received any in-servicing “on proper Hoyer lift transfers following the discovery of the injury” that was revealed when the resident was transferred out of bed.
