- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect, and Mistreatment – citation #F607 date May 10, 2018
- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date April 27, 2017
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to implement the written policy and procedure for investigating and reporting an injury of unknown origin , for [one resident].” The investigation involved a resident who “requires extensive assistance with bed mobility, transfers, locomotion on the unit, dressing, personal hygiene, and bathing.”
A review of the resident’s Care Plan indicated that the resident “was at risk for altered skin integrity” related to the need for extensive assistance with bed mobility… and fragile skin. The staff is guided to “monitor skin during care rounds, and as needed, and notify the Physician and family of any areas of concern.”
The Incident/Accident Report revealed that the staff observed injuries to the resident. These included “a bruise on the left wrist, a bruise on the right wrist, a bruise to the right breast [that was] yellow in color, a bruise on the lower left arm, and a bruise to the upper left arm.”
While there is documentation that the Physician was aware of the problem and there was a notation that the resident was combative during care, there “was no documentation to show that an investigation had been conducted to determine the root-cause analysis of the incident.”
The “facility failed to investigate and implement effective interventions to address multiple falls for [two residents].” The nursing home “also failed to supervise and provide direction to nurse’s aides, who transferred [one resident] in a manner the staff independently deemed appropriate, because there was no information on how to transfer the resident.”
The deficient practice of transferring the resident “resulted in skin tears.” A review of the resident’s Care Guide indicated that the resident can be aggressive. The document states that “staff will assist with mobility needs, as tolerated. (There were no indicated methods for transfers or mobility).”
The resident’s responsible party requested that “he not be left alone in the bathroom and assisted back to his chair. Staff is to toilet [the resident] after meals, as needed.”
The investigators reviewed the facility’s Incident Logs from December 1, 2016, to the present day. The log included “nineteen falls that occurred involving the resident. There were no falls with injuries.”
