- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date July 7, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to initiate appropriate interventions for [one resident] reviewed for falls.” Documentation shows that the resident “had ten falls from January 1, 2018, through June 4, 2018, while residing in the facility.”
Surveyors stated that as an intervention, “[the resident] was either educated or re-educated after five of the ten falls. On September 16, 2017, [the resident’s] Brief Interview for Mental Status (BIMS) indicated that he was cognitively intact.” However, three months later, on December 15, 2017, the resident’s BIMS indicated that the resident was “moderately impaired.”
A Nurse Note indicated that on January 15, 2018, “[the resident] slid to the floor while transferring himself from the bed to the chair.” The resident was re-educated on transfers and how to use the wheelchair to the bed. The nursing staff was to “encourage [the resident] to wear non-skid socks to enhance footing when in bed.”
The survey team interviewed the Director of Nursing, who also serves as the Risk Manager. The Director “verified that [the resident] was re-educated to be able to demonstrate the proper use of the call light.”
However, on April 11, 2018, at 6:15 PM, “[the resident] was found sitting on the floor in his room.” The resident’s back was “against the wheelchair, and the bedside table was in front.”
The resident said, “I was trying to reach for the box of tissues, and the table moved away from me.” The following day, the Interdisciplinary Team informed the staff to re-educate the resident to “not use the bedside table as an assistive device and request assistance when needed.”
On May 15, 2018, at 1:30 PM, the resident “was observed sitting on the floor next to his bed.” The resident said that “he was trying to reach for something on the floor and slid from the wheelchair.” The following day at 12:57 PM, the resident “was found sitting on the floor next to his bed and wheelchair.” The resident stated that “he was trying to reach for something from his over-the-bed table and slid from the wheelchair to the floor.”
