State investigators determined that “the facility failed to provide an environment free of accident hazards over which the facility had control. The 200 Hall Soiled Utility Room, which contained chemical substances, was unlocked.”
Also, Room #301 “had a missing cover on the electrical outlet. This practice had the potential to affect more than a limited number of residents.” During an interview with the Director of Nursing, it was revealed that “the 200 Hall Soiled Utility Room should be locked at all times [and that] Maintenance looked at the door to the soiled utility room, and the door should be locked at all times.”
The nursing home “failed to develop a person-centered comprehensive Care Plan indicating [one resident’s] hearing implement and the use of a hearing aid.” Specifically, a resident “stated the facility lost their hearing aid for the third time, and it has now been missing for about six months.”
The facility Social Worker stated that “the facility had replaced [the resident’s] hearing aid multiple times [and they] provided a completed missing report of the missing left hearing aid dated February 16, 2019.”
The report revealed that “the facility could not find the hearing aid and facility would replace. The hearing aid was approved for purchase on March 19, 2019.” The Social Worker “provided an invoice dated March 3, 2018, in the amount of $450 where the facility had replaced the left hearing aid in the past.”
The investigators reviewed the resident’s medical records on March 19, 2019, indicating that “the Care Plan revealed no hearing loss impairment or hearing aid addressed on the plan.” The Director of Nursing “looked over the Care Plan and confirmed the hearing impairment and hearing aid are not currently addressed on the care plan.” The Director “confirmed hearing impairment should be addressed in the care plan.”
