- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date October 9, 2018
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to provide the assistance of two-person staff when providing incontinence care, which resulted in a fall with a minor injury.” The investigation involved a moderately cognitively impaired resident who “needed extensive assistance with two people for bed mobility, transfers, dressing, toileting, and personal hygiene.”
A family member of the resident stated that “the resident fell out of bed during incontinence care because there was only one Nurse Assistant.” The resident said that when the Nursing Assistant “rolled the resident on his side, he fell out of bed.”
The resident stated that “his left arm and shoulder were hurting but would state it was from a fall several months ago, not his recent fall. He also denied any back pain and was observed moving his left arm slightly, without any complaints or signs/symptoms of pain.”
In a separate summary statement of deficiencies, dated December 21, 2017, the nursing home “failed to prevent [two residents] from leaving the facility unattended.” One cognitively impaired resident “left the facility and walked across two four lane roads with moderate to heavy traffic before being stopped approximately 1.2 miles from the facility.”
A different resident “who had experienced a change in mental status, left the facility dressed in a T-shirt, shorts, and no shoes in 37°F weather. [The resident] walked approximately 520 feet from the facility, and remained out of the facility for approximately 54 minutes.”
The Elopement/Wandering Risk Review for the first resident identified “risk factors that included impaired cognition.” The area on the form was left blank for “a history of elopement.”
At 6:00 PM on July 2, 2017, the facility initiated a Code Orange (facility code for a missing resident). The family was called ten minutes later. The staff continued to search for the resident. At 6:49 PM, a family member of the resident informed the facility that “she received a call that [the resident] had been found by the police and had been taken to the hospital for an evaluation.”
