According to state investigators, “it was determined that the facility failed to complete a thorough investigations of incidents to rule out that neglect or abuse were involved for one resident.” The incident involved a review of a resident’s Significant Change in Condition MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment. The document states that the resident “was usually understood, could usually understand others, requires extensive assistance from staffed for daily care, including transfers and bed mobility.”
The resident’s Care Plan indicated that “the resident wandered, was at risk for elopement, the staff were to monitor the resident’s location every fifteen minutes, that she was at risk for falls, it was noted to sit herself on the floor with purposeful intent.”
A nursing note for the resident revealed that “the resident had a black eye and staff reported that the resident was found sitting on the floor.” However, “there was no documented evidence that a thorough investigation into [the resident’s] black eye was completed to rule out that neglect or abuse was involved.”
The Director of Nursing revealed during an interview that they had discussed the resident’s “black eye at the morning meeting and the Registered Nurse (RN) was asked to complete the paperwork for the investigation.” The Director “was not sure why the Registered Nurse had not completed the paperwork for the investigation and confirmed that there was no documented evidence that an investigation was completed.”
The nursing home “failed to apply dressings to pressure ulcers as ordered by the Physician.” The survey team reviewed a resident’s Treatment Administration Record that revealed that “there was no documented evidence that the Dakin solution dressing was completed during the evening shift [on one day], and during the day shift [on another day].”
The Director of Nursing confirmed during an interview that “there was no documented evidence that the Dakin dressing was applied as ordered by the Physician” to expedite the resident’s wound healing.
