Deficiencies at Christian Health Center for Resident Care Violations
March 15, 2019 Inspection at Christian Health Center
In a recent health inspection at Christian Health Center, inspectors found that staff did not comply with standards for reporting and handling grievances from residents. One resident, a war veteran, explained in an interview that they felt belittled and unheard by the staff, who laughed in the presence of the veteran at the resident’s request for pain medication following a leg amputation. A different resident also reported demeaning behavior from staff in the form of pointing a finger in the resident’s face and berating them when the resident requested that their pain medicine be giving at the scheduled time.
A separate citation for the facility arose as a result of the inspector discovering that one of the staff administering oxygen for a resident did not have the proper training to perform the procedure.
January 5, 2018 Inspection at Christian Health Center
In early January of 2018, an inspection at Christian Health Center revealed that residents’ call lights were not always placed within reach, including for those who needed extensive assistance toileting and completing other basic functions of daily life which could lead to falls or other harm. Additionally, the facility was cited for improper food storage practices, including keeping food items that were one week or more past their expiration date and failing to dispose of celery that had turned brown and seeped a brown liquid into the bag in which it was being stored. Unlabeled stock and other food items were also placed in the cold storage areas, with no means of determining when they had been prepared or when they expired.
