- Failure to Provide Basic Life Support, Including Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation before the Arrival of Emergency Personnel – citation #F678 date August 31, 2018
- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date August 31, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to properly train personnel certified and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR – a lifesaving technique useful in many emergencies in which someone’s breathing or heartbeat has stopped) were certified to provide basic life support to residents requiring emergency care [before] the arrival of emergency medical personnel.”
The facility was unable to provide a CPR Certification Policy because “the facility’s computer Internet was not working for it to be printed.” However, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) policy on CPR certification indicates that “staff must maintain current CPR certification for health care providers through a CPR provider whose training includes hands-on practice, the staff CPR certification requires in-person skill assessment, and an online CPR certification is not acceptable.”
A review of the staff CPR certification indicated that many staff members working at the facility had online CPR certifications and/or the certification had expired. This list included the Administrator, activities Director, medical record supervisor, maintenance workers, housekeeping supervisor, housekeepers, Dietary Managers, dietary aides, and others.
The Director of Nursing stated that “all of his/her nursing staff was certified with an accepted CPR program and he/she was not responsible for the other staff.”
The facility “failed to identify [the resident’s] pants were too long and too big and caused a fall hazard for [one resident].” The investigation involved a cognitively impaired resident with dementia who “was a fall risk and had the potential for weight loss.” The 5’2” tall resident weighed an average of 158 pounds.
A review of the resident’s Quarterly MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment shows that the resident “had one non-injury fall since his/her last assessment.” The resident “walked in the halls with supervision” on “one to three days of the seven days of the observation.”
The resident’s SBAR (Situation, Background, Assessment, Recommendation) indicated that the resident “was found on the floor where he/she had stepped in feces.” The document shows that the resident “was sitting on the floor on his/her bottom in front of a chair and his/her legs extended in front of him/her with a plastic bag wrapped around his/her right shoe tied to his/her leg.”
