- Failure to Develop Programs That Investigate, Control and Keep Infections from Spreading – citation #F441 date February 16, 2018
- Failure to Ensure That Every Resident’s Drug Regimen Is Free from Unnecessary Medications – citation #F757 date March 21, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure infection control practices were followed during medication passes and failed to follow the policy and procedure for isolation precautions for [one resident].”
A Licensed Nurse was observed during a medication pass where drugs were “dropped on top of the medication cart.” The nurse “picked up the pills with bare hands, placed the pills in the medication cup, and administered the medications to the resident.”
A few minutes later, the same Licensed Nurse “put her bare hand into her pocket to remove the keys for the medication cart. The Licensed Nurse proceeded to pour the medications for the next resident, without using hand sanitizer or soap and water.”
A third incident was documented ten minutes later during the medication pass, where drugs were “dropped on top of the medication cart. The Licensed Nurse picked up the pill with bare hands, placed the pill into the medication cup and administered medication to a resident.”
Two days later, the Licensed Nurse verbalized that “hand sanitizer should be used between each resident during the medication pass. Soap and water should be used after a couple of uses of hand sanitizer.
The “facility failed to ensure the resident was not administered oxygen without a Physician’s order.” The investigators reviewed the resident’s Admission/Readmission Nursing Evaluation, dated January 31, 2019. The document noted that the resident had “oxygen saturation of 91% with 5.0 L per minute of oxygen via nasal cannula, irregular and labored respirations, sternal retraction, and [a] non-productive cough.” However, the resident’s Clinical Record “lacked documented evidence of a Physician’s order.”
The Director of Nursing confirmed that the resident “had oxygen administered at 5.0 L per minute via nasal cannula using a concentrator.” The Director said that the resident “had been assessed during the admission nursing evaluation to need oxygen.” However, the Director “could not verify if the Physician had been notified.”
