According to state investigators, “the facility failed to ensure guardian/responsible parties were notified of the resident’s funds approaching the spend down limit and failed to obtain authorization from guardian/responsible party to place the resident as private pay to use their money, to pay for cares and services.
In one incident, a resident funds were reviewed. At that time, the resident had “a balance of $1626.64” on November 7, 2018. By December 3, 2018, the resident had a balance of “$2932.64.” On “October 3, 2018, and on November 2, 2018,” there was a “withdrawal of $1306.00” for the care of services and on “December 6, 2018, a withdrawal of $2025.00 for care services.”
The investigators reviewed the Primary Care for the resident as Medicaid as the pay source, and on December 6, 2018, the plan was “switched to private pay.”
The investigators interviewed the resident’s legal guardian who stated that “he was not notified of any need to spend down for [the resident] was not informed of a pay status change.” The resident’s needs also revealed that “she had not been notified of any need for spend down.”
The nursing home “failed to implement proper infection control practices by not following Physician’s orders.” The deficient practice involved residents “reviewed for urinary tract infections.”
A review of the facility’s Infection Control Log revealed that on July 25, 2018, the resident was started on antibiotics “for confusion and urine odor.” However, during an interview with the Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) on July 16, 2018, it was verified that “there was no documentation [the resident’s] urinary catheter was changed as ordered,” after the resident had been treated for their condition.”
The survey team observed the resident “rolled up in bed at a 90° angle; she slid down to the bottom with her legs hanging out of the side of the bed. Her indwelling urinary catheter drainage bag was lying directly on the carpeted floor with no cover protecting it.”
The survey team interviewed a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) who verified that the resident’s “indwelling catheter drainage bag was lying directly on the floor [and] proceeded to go retrieve the resident a new catheter drainage bag.” This deficiency “substantiates Complaint Number OH 830.”
