Deficiencies at Manhattanview Nursing Home for Resident Care Violations
September 2, 2020 Inspection at Manhattanview Nursing Home
Most recently, Manhattanview Nursing Home was reviewed as the result of a complaint. In this inspection, independent investigators discovered that the facility staff had failed to transcribe a physician’s order for a resident; thus, the physician’s directions for properly caring for the resident were left out of that individual’s treatment administration record. In this resident’s particular case, the missing information resulted in inappropriate treatment regarding the supply of oxygen to the individual. When questioned about the event, the LPN stated, “I don’t know how I missed it, the oxygen order that was not transcribed to the TAR.”
November 15, 2019 Inspection at Manhattanview Nursing Home
During a standard yearly health inspection at Manhattanview nursing home, the facility received a citation for failure to utilize appropriate personal protective equipment for the safety of staff and residents in rooms for which infection control was being conducted. In this specific case, an individual using a burnisher (a floor buffer to clean and shine floors) entered an isolation room where a resident with a communicable disease was quarantined. The staff member did not don personal protective equipment before entering the room, even though a sign posted on the door noted that all individuals seeking to enter should consult with a nurse first. Additionally, an isolation cart placed outside the room with PPE on it was ignored.
The employee acknowledged that he was aware that he should ask a nurse before entering an isolation room, and that he failed to ask a nurse during this event. Furthermore, when finished with buffing in the room, the staff wheeled the burnisher into a corner where shower chairs and a whirlpool sink were stored without cleaning it. The staff explained that the burnisher pads used to clean the floor should be replaced, but he had more rooms to do after lunch and so often cleaned multiple rooms with the same pad until it became visibly dirty.
