In one incident, the resident was care planned with an intervention “to float heels” using an air mattress to prevent bedsores. However, an observation was made of the resident on two different days when the resident’s “bilateral heels were lying directly flat on [their] mattress.”
The investigative team “determined the facility failed to ensure a resident with a urinary catheter received the appropriate care and services to prevent infections to the extent possible.” The survey team observed the resident “in bed with [their] urinary catheter bag laying on the floor. There was no dignity bag [to provide privacy] in place.”
According to investigators, “the facility failed to provide pain management for [one resident who] complained of pain [during] urinary catheter care and [fourteen minutes later during] pressure ulcer care.” However, “observation and documentation revealed the staff did not administer pain medication” to ease the resident’s intense sensation of pain.
The survey team “determined the facility failed to ensure residents receive team dental care from an outside source.” The investigators reviewed the “facility list of residents identified is not receiving dental services” which revealed “three residents” who had not received care” as required by accepted standards and regulations.
