- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free from Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Accidents – citation #F689 date April 26, 2018
According to investigators, “the facility failed to maintain a safe environment for one cognitively impaired, dependent resident.” Actual harm occurred when the resident “sustained a second degree burn to her lower leg from a baseboard heating unit that was too close to the bed. This [deficient practice] affected one resident reviewed for hazards.”
The survey team reviewed the resident’s Nursing Progress Notes that revealed “an unidentified State-Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA) found [the resident] with her leg over the side of the bed and was found with a blister to her left lower leg.”
An “unidentified floor nurse completed a full skin assessment and noted a blister on [the resident’s] left lower leg. At 5:00 AM, the nurse attempted to contact both the Physician and [the resident’s] daughter without success.”
In a separate summary statement dated August 1, 2017, the surveyors determine “the facility failed to ensure [one resident] received adequate supervision and assistive devices to prevent a fall during transport. This [deficient practice] resulted in Immediate Jeopardy [for one resident] reviewed for the use of assistive devices during transport in the facility’s bus.”
It was determined that the resident “was not safely secured in the wheelchair with a seatbelt during transport resulting in a fracture to the left tibia when the bus made a sudden stop. The facility identified to residents who utilize facility transportation bus and remained in a wheelchair during transportation.”
Both the Activity Director and Activity Assistant failed to ensure that the resident “was properly secured in a wheelchair [before] transport on the facility bus.” The resident’s “wheelchair was secured to the floor of the bus, but the resident was not secured with the seatbelt to the wheelchair. During transport, the bus made a sudden stop at a traffic light, causing [the resident] to fall out of the wheelchair onto the floor the bus.”
Both the Activity Director and Activity Assistant “continued with the activity without notifying facility staff or having [the resident] assessed until the return to the facility” three hours later. At that time, the resident “was sent to the hospital for evaluation and subsequently treated for” a fracture to the left tibia.
