Little Neck Nursing Home Certification/Complaint Survey dated 11/18/2019
During this survey, the surveyor noted that a Licensed Practical Nurse began to change one resident’s dressing for his bed sores. In the midst of doing so, she and the Registered Nurse changed the resident’s soiled and dirty diaper; two of the bed sores were left exposed with no dressing when this occurred. The LPN later stated that she should have changed the resident first to prevent infection but did not do so.
In addition, on three floors, the clean linen closets were noted to have double sliding doors which would not latch and contain the passage of smoke, as required. Finally, the stair treads in both the East and West exit stairwells did not have contrasting color stripe on the edge of the tread, and the guardrails at the topmost landing was only 36 inches in height rather than the 42 inch minimum.« Previous PostNext Post »
