- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date March 19, 2018
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to prevent neglect by transferring a resident from the bed to the wheelchair, with a mechanical lift, knowing that the mechanical lift was not functioning properly and was not safe to use. The mechanical lift’s leg positioning device did not lock in place, resulting in the lift tilting.” The resident was suddenly dropped “in the wheelchair, and the overhead beam on the lift [struck] the resident’s head.”
The “facility staff continued to use the malfunctioning lift after the incident.” The state investigators determined an Immediate Jeopardy began on February 8, 2018, when the resident “was transferred from the bed to the chair with a malfunctioning lift.”
- Failure to Provide Residents Proper Treatment to Prevent the Development of New Bedsores or Allow an Existing Pressure Wound to Heal – citation #F314 date February 16, 2017
The facility “failed to provide wound healing supplements and a lab test to determine [if] [a wound] [required the provision of]pressure ulcer treatment, using prescribed wound orders.” The investigators reviewed the resident’s Care Plan that revealed “impaired skin integrity, with interventions to include medication treatments per Physician’s orders, a pressure reduction mattress, turning and repositioning, and to keep the resident clean and dry after each incontinent episode.”
However, a review of the lab work revealed that “there were no results for the ordered [test].” A nurse stated that the oral supplements were not transcribed into the resident’s Medication Administration Record, nor was “a lab ordered that needed to be obtained.”
Failure to implement a Pest Control Program to Prevent Mice, Insects or Other Pests – citation #F925 date November 11, 2018
The nursing home “failed to maintain an effective pest control program for the kitchen.”
The state investigators observed the kitchen and saw that roaches were crawling “from a box of staff gloves [located] on the Cook’s prep table.” At that time, the “Cook was preparing the meal of the day when the roaches were discovered crawling from the box, onto the sides of the prep table.”Want More Information About Treyburn Rehabilitation Center?
