- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date December 13, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to use the needed assistive devices to prevent a fall for [one resident] who sustained injuries.” The state investigators observed the resident “sitting in a mechanical reclining chair being wheeled to the lobby of the facility by [a family member] along with several visitors.”
A review of the facility Incident Investigation documented on October 15, 2018, shows that the staff showered the resident and were getting her dress. The staff “used the sit-to-stand lift instead of using the mechanical lift.” The resident’s hands “started to slip from the sit-to-stand lift handles, and her arms were bending. [The resident] complained of pain in her arms.”
A review of the Radiology Report of the same day revealed that the resident had “an acute fracture of the right distal clavicle.” Additionally, “the left shoulder and humerus showed the left humeral neck has an oblique fracture with some separation and displacement.”
The nursing staff sent the resident to the hospital and was readmitted back to the nursing home after treatment. The Administrator stated that the resident had been transferred from a sheltered care section to the skilled nursing section because the resident “needed a mechanical transfer device with two-person assists for transfers.”
A review of the admission Fall Risk Assessment revealed that the resident “had a history of three or more falls. No order for a mechanical lift device was found on the Order Summary Report with active orders as of December 10, 2018.” Additionally, the resident’s Plan of Care from the same date “did not show a plan for the use of a mechanical device [before] the fall.”
At the time of the incident, two Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA) were present when the resident “was holding onto the sit-to-stand, had a sling on both arms, fell backward, and the sling went up on both arms.” The CNAs stated that “they should have put her back on the mechanical transfer lift, transferred to bed, and applied the cream in bed.” Both of these employees “no longer work at the facility.”
