- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date March 2, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to prevent neglect on [three residents] reviewed for injuries of an unknown source.” In one case, a resident sustained “multiple rib fractures and a punctured lung, resulting in death.” It was determined that “this incident resulted in an Immediate Jeopardy.”
The investigation involved a severely, cognitively impaired resident who had required extensive two-person assist with activities of daily living.” The resident’s Care Plan indicated that the patient was “at risk for falls, self-care deficit, contractures to lower extremities, and risk for bleeding related to blood thinner use.”
The documentation shows that the nursing staff was to use a mechanical Hoyer lift to make all transfers. A Social Services Progress Note indicated that a Manage Care Case Manager had visited the resident at the hospital and was informed that the resident had “five broken ribs and a bruise along the side of her torso. The abuse hotline was made aware of the injury of an unknown source by the Social Services Director,” who also served as the Abuse Coordinator.
Documents indicated that she had immediately called in the abuse allegation into proper authorities and started an investigation. The Director stated that they were unable to substantiate anything and that they “had no knowledge of any incidents.”
Documentation shows a fire rescue arrived and sent the patient from the nursing home to the hospital due to “shortness of breath and altered mental status.” An x-ray on the chest revealed that the resident had “multiple displaced right rib fractures with possible hemothorax (blood in the chest cavity) and the collapse of the right lung.”
The Critical Care Physician documented that the patient arriving from the nursing home “is actively dying and most likely was in an interim reversible state.” The resident was “a known Do Not Resuscitate (DNR); continued DNR status; and made the patient comfortable.”
The results of an autopsy described the manner of death as chest trauma. The state surveyors imposed a monetary fine of $380,470 during their investigation of this and other citations on March 2, 2018.
