Standard Statement of Deficiencies Dated 11/8/2018
AHCA found that the facility failed to ensure one patient’s dignity. The patient had expressed concerns regarding his roommate’s behavior which included using the bathroom in a messy manner in an effort to bother the patient and insulting the patient. In the survey of the facility, AHCA also found that three out of seven residents did not have written documents related to their respective Advance Directives. In addition, the survey found that the facility did clean and store their dishware and utensils in properly sanitized conditions because the ceiling fans above the dish rooms were dusty and had not been cleaned in some time.
Fire/Life/Safety Statement of Deficiencies Dated 11/8/2018
An unannounced survey found that the facility did not properly ensure that the hazardous area was protected as a door was damaged. Another door was not latching properly and it was repaired during the survey.
Complaint Regarding Deficiencies Dated 12/6/2017
Several individuals, including family members of patients, staff, and a private caregiver, reported that there appeared to be a lack of linens for all of the patients, particularly towels and pads. Often, patients and staff had to wait for laundry to deliver fresh linens, and sometimes this occurred after a staff member’s particular shift.
