Surveys and Complaints for Both Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing
June 24, 2016 Complaint Survey of Abbey Delray Assisted Living Facility
The Abbey Delray Assisted Living Facility was inspected randomly in the summer of 2016 due to resident complaint. As part of the June 2016 inspection, state agents examined the care of 3 randomly selected residents.
Abbey Delray Resident #1 – Issues With Care
Randomly sampled Resident #1 was admitted to Abbey Delray’s Assisted Living and determined not to be a fall risk. However, investigators found Resident 1 suffered from gait abnormality and needed preventative measures to stop facility falls.
Resident #2 at Abbey Delray – Issues With Care
When the AHCA survey team examined Resident #2’s records, it was determined that the Abbey Delray failed to assess and chart whether this resident’s needs could be met in the assisted living facility. Further, Resident #2 required an emergent admission to the hospital. Following their re-admission back into Abbey Delray ALF, the staff failed to do a re-assessment of the patient.
Resident #3 Issues With Care
Resident #3 of the random 3 resident sample also was found with errors in their chart. Abbey Delray did not have a completed 1823 form in Resident #3’s file, a violation of Florida’s Assisted Living Facility laws.
Citations Based on Complaints Against Abbey Delray
State investigators discussed their findings with Abbey Delray’s Administrator and Director of Nursing. Both acknowledged that all 3 residents had deficiencies contained in their chart.
March 7, 2017 Re-certification Survey of Abbey Delray Assisted Living Facility
AHCA investigators returned to the Abbey Delray Assisted Living on March 7, 2017 for a re-licensure survey. During this inspection, it was determined that the Extended Congregate Care supervisor was not qualifed to serve in that role, as they had not completed the required E.C.C. course.
