According to Medicare, this facility maintains an overall rating of one out of five stars, including one out of five stars concerning health inspections, one out of five stars for staffing issues and one out of five stars for quality measures. The Magoffin County neglect attorneys at the Nursing Home Law Center have found serious deficiencies and safety concerns at the Salyersville Nursing and Rehabilitation Center that include:
- Failure to Ensure Services Provided by the Nursing Facility Meet Professional Standards of Quality – citation date August 14, 2018
- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce a Program That Investigates, Controls and Keeps Infection from Spreading – citation date November 2, 2017
- Failure to Get or Give Quality Lab Services/Tests Promptly to Meet the Needs of the Residents – citation date November 2, 2017
The investigators documented that the facility “failed to provide medications as ordered by the resident’s attending Physician.” The documentation revealed that “licensed staff failed to follow professional standards of practice to ensure the Physician’s orders” were followed to ensure the resident’s well-being.
According to state investigators, the facility failed to “maintain an effective infection control program designed to provide a safe and sanitary environment to prevent the transmission of disease and infection.” Specifically, the nursing home “failed to perform hand hygiene (handwashing, antiseptic handwash) after the removal of gloves and before donning new gloves.”
At the time, the nursing staff was providing blood glucose testing for a resident when they “failed to properly cleanse the blood glucose monitoring device before and after performing the test.” During an interview with the facility Director of Nursing, it was revealed that “the facility policy was to perform hand hygiene before and after patient care, when changing gloves, etc.” However, the Director stated that “this was monitored by a yearly competency checklist and spot checking [and] she did not have any concerns with staff performing proper hand hygiene.”
The investigative team documented that the facility “failed to obtain the laboratory services [for one resident] as ordered by the resident’s attending Physician. The Physician ordered a Complete Blood Count (CBC), Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP),” and other tests including a Fasting Lipid Profile (FLP) and a Stimulating Hormone Test (TSH).
However, the facility “failed to ensure the tests were completed.” The resident’s last (CBC, CMP, TSH, and FLP) tests were completed” months earlier. During an interview with the facility Director of Nursing, it was revealed that “if the laboratory tests were not renewed in the computer monitoring it would be automatically deleted,” which could place the resident’s health in jeopardy.
