- Failure to Respond Appropriately to All Alleged Violations – citation #F610 date November 28, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to thoroughly investigate and report an injury of unknown origin for [one resident] reviewed for assessments after a fall.”
The state surveyors reviewed the resident’s clinical records and Nursing Notes dated June 27, 2018. The note indicated that there was “a bruise on his left ear unrelated to a fall. [The resident] was asked about it [and stated] ‘it was there before.’”
The surveyors interviewed the resident’s wife, who said that “she was aware [the resident] had fallen during the early morning hours [and when she came to pick them up] she noticed his left ear was red/purple.”
The resident’s wife said that he had said “he hit his head when he fell.” His wife said that “she did not remember speaking to the staff about the bruise or the details of the fall [and that the resident] did not complain of pain and was his usual self until two days later (June 29, 2018) when he complained of a bad headache after returning from [medical treatment].”
The resident returned for additional medical treatment and “complained of a bad headache.” His wife “asked [the nurse] if [the resident] could have something for a headache. The nurse said, ‘yes’, and gave him Tylenol.” His wife said the resident complained of pain later that day indicating that the Tylenol was not working.
At that point, the resident stated “that he thought he should go to the hospital. She told him that if he thought he should go, then he should go. She reported that while she was talking to them, she heard a female voice in the background. She stated [the resident] told her that he had to get off the phone because [the nurse] was there to take his vitals, and to see if he needed to go to the hospital.”
The following morning, the resident’s wife received a call from the facility informing them that “[the resident] was unresponsive, and they were sending him to the hospital.”
