- Failure to Provide Necessary Care and Services to Maintain the Highest Well-Being of Every Resident – citation #F309 date July 29, 2016
- Failure to Provide and Implement an Infection Protection and Control Program – citation #F880 date August 24, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to provide the necessary care and services [timely for one resident] reviewed for Quality of Care and Assessment.” Specifically, the resident “experienced a decline in respiratory condition resulting in hospitalization.”
The resident experienced harm as a result of this deficiency. The state investigators reviewed the resident’s Physician’s orders and medical records indicating that the resident was to receive medication orally and nasally to treat anxiety, panic disorder, and shortness of breath.
A review of the resident’s Individualized Plan of Care notes that the resident “is at risk for cardiopulmonary complications related but not limited to [a recent medical condition] with the left upper lobe resection and postsurgical pleural effusion.”
A Nurse’s Note indicated that the resident was “resting in bed with her eyes open and experiencing shortness of breath with crackles and wheezing noted.” The staff administered a nebulizer treatment. However, the resident “was not re-assessed by the Registered Nurse (RN) caring for her [until] three hours later.”
The facility “failed to maintain infection control practices during [one laundry] observation.” The state investigators observed a laundry worker “completing laundry services appropriately until [they] neglected to sanitize the door of the washing machine after closing it with the same gloved hands used to load the drum with soiled [potentially contaminated] items. At the time of the observation, there were multiple residents on contact precautions for various infections.”
Failure to Provide Residents Proper Treatment to Prevent the Development of New Bedsores or Allow Existing Pressure Wound to Heal – citation #F314 date May 18, 2017
The facility “failed to ensure that [one resident] reviewed for pressure ulcers received required services to prevent new pressure ulcer developments.” Specifically, the resident “was not turned and repositioned [as required in their Plan of Care] at least every two hours.”
The state investigators interviewed the Hospice Nurse providing the resident care who confirmed that “[the resident] was prone to skin breakdown.”
