- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date December a 2016
- Failure to Remedy Past Noncompliance – citation #F698 date November 29, 2018
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to provide a safe environment for [one resident] by allowing a power strip to be used to power an oxygen concentrator that was in use and allowing the power strip to lay on the floor causing a trip hazard.”
The survey team observed the power strip laying on the floor “with an oxygen concentrator plugged into it with oxygen in use.” The surveyors interviewed the Maintenance Director who confirmed “that the power strip was being used unsafely [by] having the oxygen concentrator plugged into it and laying on the floor. The Director stated he was “unaware the power strip was being used at all, and he was unaware that this is unacceptable and will correct the problem immediately.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure that [one resident] receives services consistent with professional standards of practice. The facility failed to provide [the resident] transportation to a Physician-order medical treatment appointment.”
The surveyors reviewed the resident’s Care Plan, dated June 6, 2018. The Plan indicated that the resident “was at risk for impaired renal function and was at risk for complications [related to another medical condition].” The resident’s Care Plan indicates that the resident will receive medical treatment “as ordered by the Physician weekly with no complications related to [the medical treatment].”
However, a review of the resident’s Progress Notes revealed: “there was no documentation on November 3, 2018, to indicate that the resident received [medical treatment] services on Saturday, November 30, 2018.”
A continued review of the Progress Notes from that time until November 8, 2018, “revealed that there was no documentation that the resident’s Primary Care Physician was notified of any significant changes related to the resident’s medical treatment and no documentation of any recommendations made in response to the resident missing a medical treatment appointment on November 3, 2018.”
It was also noted that “there was no documentation that the resident’s physician or nurse practitioner was notified of the resident status, and there was no documentation that the physician or nurse practitioner made recommendations for the resident’s follow up.”
During an interview with the resident, it was indicated that the resident had missed her Saturday scheduled medical appointment treatment “due to an issue of transportation.” At that time, the “right side of her face appeared swollen.” The resident stated that her face was swollen “because she missed her Saturday appointment.”
