- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date February 21, 2019
State investigators determined the facility “failed to ensure adequate supervision and assistance devices to prevent accidents for [one resident] reviewed for falls/accidents.” Specifically, “the nursing staff failed to ensure that staff was aware of and utilized the appropriate methodology to safely transfer [the resident] without having to lower the resident to the floor (fall).”
The state investigators interviewed the resident’s daughter. The daughter stated that February 23, 2019, “the resident fell in his room. She said staff did not use the appropriate lift and the resident had to be lower to the floor when he became weak during the transfer. The daughter said she and her mother were first told of the fall by the resident’s roommate on February 24, 2019.”
The daughter stated that “after they were told of the fall by the roommate, the resident’s wife asked the morning nurse on duty if her husband had fallen yesterday. The nurse that she did not have any knowledge or documentation that the resident had fallen. The daughter said her mother was notified late on the afternoon on the 24th that the resident had fallen on the 23rd.”
The surveyors interviewed the resident’s wife who said “the first time she knew that her husband had fallen (was lower to the floor) was from a conversation with his roommate at 11:00 AM on February 24, 2019. She said after she heard about the fall, she has the nurse on duty for the morning of the 24th that her husband had fallen. The nurse on duty said there was no conversation the resident had fallen during the morning change of shift, and there was no documentation the resident had fallen” the day before.”
The nurse said that “she would go and clarify that her husband had fallen” the day before. She said late in the afternoon the following day around 2:00 PM, “the nurse came and told her that her husband had fallen” the day before.
The wife said that “she should have been notified right away that her husband had fallen to the floor and she was unhappy that there was no documentation regarding this fall. She said the nurse on duty for the morning of February 24, 2019, said that the resident was lowered to the floor [and] it was considered a fall.”
