Deficiencies at ProMedica Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Pittsburgh for Resident Care Violations
June 17, 2022, Inspection at ProMedica Rehabilitation Pittsburgh
During an inspection at ProMedica Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation (Pittsburgh), inspectors determined that the facility failed to maintain dignity and respect for two of their residents. While going through the facility, inspectors noticed that two residents with catheter bags did not have dignity bags over them. Catheter dignity bags make it so that residents’ urine is not visible to others and are important in maintaining a comfortable environment.
July 20, 2021, Inspection at ProMedica Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Pittsburgh
A complaint inspection was conducted at the nursing home on July 20th, 2021, after residents had been complaining of a strong, foul odor near the elevator for months. An interview with the Maintenance Assistant revealed that the odor was caused by stagnant water in the elevator shaft. The employee was not able to identify if the water was from a broken pipe, rain runoff, or another plumbing issue. While the odor was not harmful, it prevented the facility from providing a clean and comfortable, homelike environment for residents.
May 3, 2019, Inspection at ProMedica Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation (Pittsburgh)
Based on review of records and staff interviews, it was determined that the facility failed to report a resident’s falls to the required state agency. The resident, who was unable to move by herself, had a fall from her bed which required x-rays to be done of her left shoulder, hip, and pelvis. The fall was caused by an aide attempting to reposition the resident in bed. A few months after the resident’s first fall, she fell out of the Hoyer lift sling during a transfer. During the May 3rd, 2019, inspection, the Director of Nursing (DON) confirmed with inspectors that neither incident had been reported to the required state agency.
