According to state surveyors, “the facility failed to take precautionary measures to protect the health and safety of a resident when the facility failed to act upon [a second resident’s] verbal threat to cause bodily harm to [the resident.” The failure “resulted in Immediate Jeopardy when [the verbally and physically abusive resident] acted upon his threat by punching [the first resident] repeatedly in the face with a closed fist, causing serious injury.”
The injured resident “sustained multiple fractures of the nose, laceration of the lip, a chipped tooth and contusions to the right side.” The injured resident “was subsequently hospitalized.” The verbally and physically aggressive resident “was sent to the hospital for psychiatric evaluation” and both resident’s “were seen for a psychological evaluation.”
The nursing home “failed to implement the facility abuse policy report an allegation of a threat to cause bodily harm and to protect a resident from the threat.” The investigation involved the previously listed incident above that caused a resident’s bodily harm.
The nursing facility “failed to ensure pressure relieving devices were applied as ordered.” The survey team reviewed a resident’s Plan of Care that revealed the resident “had fragile skin; it was at risk for skin breakdown. It revealed the resident was to have bilateral heel protectors in place while in bed.”
The survey team observed the resident “in bed [with] no heel protectors in place. One to protect was seen on top of the bedcovers.” During an interview with the resident, it was revealed that “she was supposed to have the heel boots on both feet, but they had not put them on her for a long time.” The resident further stated that “heels hurt most of the time and felt better with the heel boots on.”
