- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date May 18, 2017
- Failure to Ensure That Every Resident’s Drug Regimen Is Free from Unnecessary Medications – citation #F329 date May 18, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure an environment free of accident hazards for [one resident].” For this resident, “the facility staff failed to apply Physician-order Geri sleeves to the bilateral upper extremities.”
The investigators conducted an initial tour of the facility and found the resident “lying in bed. The surveyor observed that [the resident] had bruising on her bilateral arms between the wrist and elbows. The survey did not observe any Geri sleeves.” On the same day, approximately 1.5 hours later, the surveyor observed the resident again “lying in bed. The surveyor did not observe any Geri sleeves.”
The surveyor “walked to the nurse’s station and asked which nurse was assigned to take care of [this resident].” A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) stated that “she was assigned to care for [the resident] for the evening shift.” The surveyor reviewed the resident’s clinical record with the LPN and “pointed out the specific order for the Physician ordered Geri sleeves to be worn at all times.”
The surveyor “notified the Director of Nursing that Geri sleeves had not been on [the resident] on multiple occasions” and that the resident “had bruises on both arms.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure that [two residents] in a sample survey were free from unnecessary medications.” Specifically, “the facility staff failed to monitor for specific behavioral symptoms, effectiveness, side effects, and nursing interventions related to antidepressant drug use [and] antianxiety drug use.”
A review of the resident’s clinical records identified the medications the resident had been taking. However, “further review of the clinical record failed to produce monitoring for the antidepressant [and] anti-anxiety [drug use] to include specific behaviors, effectiveness, side effects, and nursing interventions.”
The Director of Nursing confirmed that the resident was taking and antidepressant and that the clinical record “failed to produce monitoring for the use of [the drugs].”
