The state investigators determined the nursing home " failed to provide supervision to a cognitively impaired resident, with wandering behaviors, during transportation to and from [their medical treatment] in a non-medical taxi-like service.”
The “resident was transported back to the facility, but due to the resident’s severe cognitive impairment, wandering tendancies and the lack of staff supervision during transport to and from [the medical treatment] center, in the non-medical mode of transportation, [it] could have resulted in an adverse outcome to the resident.”
The state investigators determined an Immediate Jeopardy situation began that day “when the facility staff failed to supervise [the resident], who was cognitively impaired with wandering behaviors, during transportation.”
A review of [the Nurse’s] Notes indicated that the Insurance Navigation Coordinator revealed an inbound call was received from the clinical manager at the treatment center, stating that “the resident had not shown up for [his medical treatment] yet.” The records were checked and found that “the earlier transport had been canceled.”
The clinical manager said that “the resident requires door-to-door service, due to dementia.”
The “facility failed to follow ordered infection control precautions for [one resident] who was placed on droplet precautions,” due to a positive influenza swab test. That resident had a droplet precaution sign posted “on the doorway of the resident’s room and a rolling cabinet with gowns, masks, and gloves.”
Observation of the resident revealed that the resident “was brought from the shower room back to the hallway, outside her doorway, and left in the wheelchair with no mask on.” Also, the Nursing Assistant “was not wearing any personal protective equipment such as a gown, gloves, or a mask.”
