Deficiencies at Immaculate Mary Center for Rehabilitation & Healthcare for Resident Care Violations
The nursing home was cited in November 2021 for multiple resident care violations. Upon record review and interview, it was determined that the nursing staff had failed to give multiple residents showers during an extended period of time, and also failed to provide restorative therapy for at least one resident.
The results of this inspection revealed that nursing staff at Immaculate Mary Center had failed to follow physician’s orders. A resident was found by a licensed practical nurse lying on the bathroom floor after an unwitnessed fall. The LPN noted that the resident seemed slow to respond and generally unwell. After notifying the physician of the resident’s condition and vital signs, the nursing staff received orders to order a STAT EKG (electrocardiogram) and to notify the physician of any changes to the resident’s condition. The nursing staff did not complete the EKG until 14 hours after they had received orders from the physician. They also did not notify the physician of changes in the resident’s vital signs. The resident was transferred to the hospital two days after the fall for further evaluation.
Based on clinical record review, it was found that the facility failed to provide proper wound care to prevent and treat a resident’s bed sores. The resident had a history of skin breakdown and entered the facility with a sacral wound. The facility failed to prevent the development of two new bed sores on the resident’s butt.
It was found that Immaculate Mary Center had hired a nurse aide that had recently had her nurse aide certification evoked by the Pennsylvania Nurse Aid Registry. Her certification had been evoked due to an incident at a prior facility that resulted in a resident suffering a fracture to the right femur.
The nursing home failed to prevent a resident from eloping from the facility. The resident was previously identified by the staff as an elopement risk. The resident was not properly supervised and managed to exit the facility. The resident was gone for almost three hours before being found a half-mile away from the facility.
