Deficiencies at St. John’s Nursing Center for Resident Care Violations
May 26th, 2022, Inspection at St. John’s Nursing Center
This inspection revealed that staff had failed to properly assess a resident’s needs and create a care plan catering to those needs upon admission. Resident #101 had been admitted to St. John’s Nursing Center with a history of falls. The resident suffered from gait and mobility issues, along with dizziness- factors which all contribute to a higher risk of falls. However, the staff member who created Resident #101’s care plan marked that Resident #101 had no history of falls and a low-medium risk of future falls. After being in the facility for several days without fall prevention measures in place, Resident #101 suffered a fall which resulted in a right hip fracture.
August 8th, 2019, Inspection at St. John’s Nursing Center
During this inspection at St. John’s Nursing Center, surveyors observed Resident #30 receiving catheter care. Resident #30 had a foley catheter in, and an active UTI (urinary tract infection). Following the observation, it was determined that one of the CNAs (certified nursing assistant) that helped with Resident #30’s catheter care had done so improperly. The CNA did not follow professional standards of care to properly and thoroughly clean Resident #30’s perineal area, which could result in bacteria spreading through the catheter to the bladder.
