- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date March 16, 2017
The State investigation was conducted using staff interviews, a review of manufacturer’s instructions, and observations by surveyors to determine deficiencies and violations. A review of manufacturer’s equipment revealed that any “failure to lock the caster brakes on any lift for transfer equipment before the resident is transferred could result in injury to the operator or patient.”
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to provide supervision and assistive devices necessary to prevent accidents for [2 residents] observed during transfers.”
The failure “to lock the brakes on the bath chair and the failure to position a resident correctly in the lift resulted in discomfort and may result in avoidable falls and injuries.” Surveyors observed two Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) entering the resident’s room with the bath chair scale. One CNA “locked the caster brakes on one side of the lift and attempted to lock the other side but was unable.”
At that time, the CNA stated “I think this one must be broke.” The resident then “transferred herself to the bath chair, which started to roll backwards on the unlocked side.” The CNA placed “her foot behind the wheel to prevent the chair from rolling further.”
The State surveyors observed the bath scale chair that “showed both caster brakes functioning appropriately.” The surveyors interviewed an administrative staff member who had identified that “they had not received any work order for the bath chair scale.”
The same day, the investigators observed another CNA assisting a different resident “to the bathroom using a sit-to-stand mechanical lift. During the transfer, the resident stated, ‘I cannot stand like this very much. It hurts.’” The CNA then replied, “I will try to hurry.”
It was determined that “the CNA failed to position the resident in the lift to avoid discomfort and ensure corrective posture [before] completing the transfer.”
