- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation date December 4, 2018
According to investigators, “the facility did not ensure that each resident receives adequate supervision and assistance devices to prevent accidents.” One resident “reviewed for accidents did not have the appropriate assistance devices in place to prevent accidents.”
Specifically, “the facility did not ensure that [the resident] had a low bed in place per the Care Plan when he was transferred between units. The resident fell from the bed and sustained injuries.”
The incident involved a moderately, cognitively impaired resident who “usually understands and is usually understood.” The Facility Investigation documented that on June 14, 2018, at approximately 7:00 PM, a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) “walked by the resident’s room and noted the resident lying on the floor next to his bed; face down. The CNA notified the nurse, who notified the Registered Nurse (RN), Supervisor.”
The RN assessed the resident and noted that the resident “had skin tears to the right inner forearm that measured 2.0 cm x 2.0 cm, 4.0 centimeters by 3.0 cm and 6.0 cm x 3.0 cm and a skin tear to the left inner arm that measured 5.0 cm by 3.0 cm.” The nursing staff applied First Aid and the resident who “was assisted back to bed via a mechanical lift with a two-person assist.”
The nursing staff notified the resident’s medical provider and responsible party. The investigation concluded that “the resident was transferred on June 13, 2018, from Unit Two. Upon transfer, the resident was not provided a low bed per his care plan. The plan to prevent recurrence documented that the nursing unit managers were educated on the Intrafacility Transfer Tool and educated “on the importance of reviewing the resident’s Plan of Care when receiving a transfer from another unit to ensure all safety devices/equipment are in place.”
