- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date September 11, 2018
- Failure to Develop Programs That Investigate, Control and Keep Infections from Spreading – citation #F441 date June 22, 2017
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to prevent a dependent resident from falling out of bed during incontinence care.” The resident “fell facedown onto the floor and sustained multiple skin tears to her upper extremities, lacerations to her face requiring sutures, a facial hematoma, and increased pain for a period of five days.”
The nursing staff administered narcotic medication to manage her pain. The investigation involved a cognitively intact resident who “requires extensive assistance of one staff member for bed mobility and personal hygiene. She was assessed as not steady on her feet and was only able to stabilize with staff assistance for surface-to-surface transfers.” The resident “had impairment on both sides of her upper extremities and weighed 220 pounds.”
The Incident Report, dated August 23, 2018, indicated that the resident “had a witnessed fall [that day at 6:30 AM], resulting in moderate harm.” The nurse was called to the resident’s room, “where the resident was observed face down on the floor.”
The Nursing Assistant said that “she was doing incontinence care and [the resident] rolled out of bed.” The resident “had injuries to her face and was sent to the emergency department for evaluation and treatment.”
The “facility failed to disinfect a multi-use point-of-care blood testing device used for clotting studies.” The state investigators interviewed a nurse, who stated that the meter used by the evening staff was “for multi-use.” The nurse indicated that the device “was cleaned after each use [between residents] with alcohol wipes.”
The Assistant Director of Nursing said that this device evaluated the resident’s pro time (a prothrombin time test that measures how quickly your blood clots) and clotting study. The Assistant Director stated that the device was to be cleaned using alcohol, with a wait time of at least ten minutes until the alcohol dries.
The investigative team “observed the Assistant Director demonstrating the use of the meter. The Assistant Director wiped the body of the meter, but not the test strip guide or its cover, by using a disinfecting super Sani-Cloth wipe (not alcohol or bleach)” according to manufacturer’s recommendations.
