Deficiencies at Daytona Beach Health and Rehabilitation Center for Resident Care Violations
Based on interviews and record review, it was determined that the facility had 13 residents with bedsores. The nurse assessing the wounds and providing wound care services for these residents was a licensed practical nurse (LPN). The LPN was providing wound care without the oversight of a registered nurse (RN). Furthermore, this inspection revealed that multiple residents had developed new pressure ulcers while residing in the facility.
During an inspection at the nursing home, surveyors found an unlocked medication cart in the hallway outside of resident rooms. The cart was examined, and two medication cups were observed with ten total pills in them. One of the medications was a controlled substance. An interview with the Assistant Director of Nursing (ADON) was conducted and she confirmed that the unsecured medication cart was a violation of the facility’s policies.
When conducting a standard inspection at Daytona Beach Health and Rehabilitation Center, surveyors noticed that the facility had failed to ensure that six residents had a call bell within reach. Call bells are crucial to the health and safety of residents as they can alert staff members to a resident in need.
