Deficiencies at Bridgepoint Sub-Acute and Rehab Capitol Hill for Resident Care Violations

December 18, 2020 Inspection at Bridgepoint Sub-Acute and Rehab Capitol Hill

In December of 2020, Bridgepoint underwent an inspection at its Capitol Hill facility that discovered an insufficiency in documentation and record keeping. One resident’s physician was not notified when the patient contracted a communicable illness despite a mandate in his or her records stipulating that such information was to be provided to the resident’s healthcare team. Another resident’s medical charts were not updated appropriately to reflect blood work that had been done; the individual’s personal medical records had made no mention of laboratory testing.

June 26, 2018 Inspection at Bridgepoint Sub-Acute and Rehab Capitol Hill

When Bridgepoint Sub-Acute and Rehab was evaluated in depth in the middle of 2018, it received numerous citations for the state of the building and the care of the residents housed within. In 55 of the (then occupied) 109 resident rooms, the air conditioning units did not output cold air, preventing residents from adjusting the temperature to a level that was manageable for them. These faulty units were located on the fourth, fifth, and sixth floors of the facility. Additionally, some residents were inaccurately coded when discharged, which resulted in confusion about the final destination of the individual; one who had been discharged to home was listed as discharged to an acute care facility.

In another citation, staff were noted to have taken blood pressure measurements from a resident using a cuff that did not fit the patient’s arm, thus provided an inaccurate reading. First, a cuff that was too small was used, and so the staff elected to take a measurement from the forearm instead of the upper arm. Later, a thigh cuff was used for measurement, which was too large for the upper arm. A separate resident who was labeled as entirely dependent on staff for continence-related matters was found unattended to in his own urine after staff claimed that too few workers were present to assist.
