- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date November 16, 2018
The state investigators determined the nursing home "neglected to assess, evaluate, monitor, and treat a resident with continued complaints of left rib pain, following a fall on October 17, 2018.” The result of a diagnostic x-ray taken on October 30, 2018, revealed: “fractures to the third through seventh ribs on the left side.” The investigation involved a review of one resident’s medical records for neglect.
A review of the Nursing 24-Hour Report, dated October 16, 2018, revealed that the resident “slid to the floor on the first shift, with the Physician and responsible party notified.” The report indicates that “the nursing staff gave the resident Tylenol on the second shift.”
The Incident Report and Nursing Note the following day read that the resident “had an unwitnessed fall in her room. She was ambulating on her own from the wheelchair to the closet, when she fell.” The documentation said that there were no injuries, but the resident “complained of left rib pain.”
A Physician Fax Communication Sheet, two days after the incident, indicated that the resident “did not fall, but sat on the floor and caught herself using her walker and recliner.” The resident “complained of left rib pain.”
By October 23, 2018, the Physician Communication Sheet revealed that the resident “continues to complain of left upper rib pain.” The document stated that “she was going to have her [responsible party] drop her off at the hospital for an evaluation if something was not done.” The Nurse Practitioner documented that there were “no complaints with the date of October 24, 2018, and her initials.”
There were no Nurse’s Notes in the Electronic Medical Record regarding the resident’s “continued complaints of left rib pain from October 17, 2018, until October 29, 2018.”
The Nurse Practitioner Note from October 30, 2018, states that the resident had fallen two weeks ago. The practitioner documented that the resident “continues to have left lower rib cage pain that worsens with coughing, deep breaths, or with positioning in bed.”
