- Failure to Honor the Resident’s Rights to a Dignified Existence, Self-Determination, Communication, and Exercise His or Her Rights – citation #F550 date April 18, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to treat each resident with dignity by not providing care related to answering call lights timely for [two residents].” The facility “failed to perform activities of daily living such as toileting, resulting in the embarrassment of residents.”
In one case, a cognitively intact resident “was assessed to require the extensive assistance of two staff members for bed mobility, and to be dependent on two staff members for transfers, and one staff member for toileting. [The resident] was assessed to have occasional incontinence of bowel and was continent of urine.”
The resident’s Care Plan indicated that the resident experienced “occasional occurrences of incontinence related to weakness and the need for extensive assistance for transfers and toileting.” The resident wore incontinence briefs.
The survey team interviewed the resident’s wife, who stated that “when she came in last night (April 15, 2019), her husband was wet with urine. She said that he told her that no one had changed him after he was put to bed. She also reported that she has come into the facility many times to find that her husband was wet with urine or soiled with a bowel movement and that it is very embarrassing for him.”
The wife indicated that “when she asked him if he calls for assistance, he tells her that he has, but they do not answer the call light, or they tell him they will come back.” The wife said that when she comes in, “she makes sure that her husband’s clean and dry before letting the CNAs get him out of bed, or before she leaves at night to go home.”
The wife said that “she works as a nurse’s assistant and knows that he needs to be checked more frequently to prevent the breakdown of the skin. She is afraid that he will have skin breakdown, resulting in a wound, and that will keep him from returning home for an even longer time period then he already has been away from her.”
The resident asked the resident’s wife if she would perform a call light check. The resident’s light came on at 3:01 PM. However, an LPN answered the call at 3:20 PM, saying “it was a shift change, and everyone was in the process of the shift report.”
