The state surveyors “determined that the facility failed to provide appropriate interventions to prevent skin breakdown for [one resident].” According to the resident’s Comprehensive Care Plan, the resident “was to have elbow protectors in place at all times to prevent skin breakdown. However, observations of [the resident revealed that the resident] did not have elbow protectors present” on multiple days.
According to state investigators, the nursing home “failed to ensure one resident received the necessary care and services to maintain bowel and bladder function. The facility assessed [the resident] to have a bowel and bladder incontinence and developed a Care Plan for the resident to be on a toileting program.”
However, the resident “was incontinent of bowel and bladder and utilized an incontinence brief because staff did not assess the resident to the bedpan [or] bathroom timely.”
The state surveyors “determined the facility failed to provide adequate interventions to prevent falls for [two residents. One resident] had been assessed by the facility to be at high risk for falls and interventions were noted for [them] to have a sensor pad alarm present in [their] wheelchair to prevent falls.”
However, surveyors observed the resident who “did not have any sensor pad alarm present in the wheelchair. In addition, [a second resident] had been assessed by the facility to be at high risk for falls. An intervention had been initiated for [the second resident] to have knee protectors present” which were not present.
The state survey team “determined that the facility failed to maintain an effective pest control program.
