- Failure to Ensure Services Provided by the Nursing Facility Meet Professional Standards of Quality – citation #F281 date March 2, 2017
- Failure to Provide Care by Qualified Persons According to Each Resident’s Written Plan of Care – citation #F282 date March 2, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to provide services under professional standards of care for a Jejunostomy (J-tube) for [a resident] with a J-tube. The nurse failed to flush a J-tube according to Physician’s orders.”
The state investigators observed a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) preparing medication for the resident; she removed an aspirin, crushed it, and placed the drug in a medication cup. After adding water in the crushed medication, “it did not fully dissolve. She then poured 30 mL of [a liquid protein supplement] into another medication cup [and] poured in half a cup of cold water.”
After entering the resident’s room, she poured “roughly 10 mL of water into the J-tube and then poured the aspirin into the J-tube. The liquid in the tube did not infuse by gravity. After about thirty seconds, [the nurse] added another 10 mL of water into the tube. The liquid still did not infuse.”
The employee then “took the plunger, placed it in a 60 mL syringe, and forcefully pushed the medication into the J-tube.” The state investigators interviewed the LPN, who stated that “she thought she was following the facility’s policy to flush with 50 mL of water, but then realized afterward [the resident] had a more specific Physician order.”
The nurse indicated that “she did not call the doctor when the medication and supplement did not infuse by gravity.” The Director of Nursing stated that “she was not sure if their policy and procedure permitted the use of using the plunger to push in the medication.”
The facility “failed to provide services [according to] the written Plan of Care and per facility policy and procedure.” The investigators interviewed the resident who was in bed and stating that they were not feeling well.
The resident “complained of pain in her back and lower pelvic area. [The resident] stated she had recently lost her balance. As a result, she fell, injuring her leg, hip, shoulder, and arm.” The Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant stated that the resident “had two recent falls and was receiving therapy as a result.”
