The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to follow the resident’s Plan of Care, resulting in a fall or [failed] to prevent a potential accident.” The investigation involved a resident without cognitive impairment who “requires extensive assistance of two or more staff for physical assistance with transfers, toilet use, and personal hygiene.”
The resident’s Care Plan identified the resident as “at risk for falls secondary to many falls with and without injury in the past, multiple risk factors such as impaired balance, decreased strength, and impaired gait due to bilateral foot and hammertoe deformities.”
A Reportable Event dated May 20, 2019, identified that the Nurse Aide was assisting the resident with “transferring from the wheelchair to the toilet.” The resident “started to fall, and the Nurse Aide eased the resident to the floor.”
The facility investigation involving the resident indicated that “the resident was non-ambulatory and could not bear weight, and indicated the resident was transferred without the benefit of two staff members [according to] the Plan of Care.”
A late entry Nurse’s Note indicated that the resident did not hit their head but “was lying on the bathroom floor on his/her back. After a full assessment with no concerns noted, the resident was transferred from the floor to his/her bed by three staff members via a Hoyer lift. No complaints of pain or discomfort were noted at the time of the assessment.”
The facility “failed to ensure weekly assessments and interventions [were implemented] to prevent the development of a pressure ulcer.”
The state investigators reviewed the resident’s clinical record dated January 9, 2018, through January 22, 2018. The documentation “failed to identify the resident’s heels were off-loaded as per the admission Plan of Care.”
A review of the Weekly Body Audit Sheets “failed to identify any date” when checking for abrasions and excoriations. Additionally, there were no audit sheets completed for January 15, 2018, January 22, 2018, and January 29, 2018, [according to] facility policy.”
