- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date June 7, 2019
- Failure to Ensure That Every Resident Is Free from the Use of Physical Restraints Unless Need for Medical Treatment – citation #F604 date June 25, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to implement appropriate interventions after a fall for [one resident, who] had falls from her wheelchair. However, the implement interventions were not specific to the resident’s accidents from the wheelchair.”
As a result, the resident “sustained a fall on April 30, 2019, from her wheelchair (the third fall from her wheelchair), causing [the resident] to sustain a wrist fracture and pain due to a fracture.” This deficient practice “posed a risk for [the resident] sustaining further falls and injury.”
In a separate summary statement of deficiencies dated January 10, 2019, the facility “failed to ensure adequate supervision was provided to prevent falls for [one resident, who] was assisted to the bathroom, left unsupervised, and sustained an unwitnessed fall.” The resident stated that “she hit her head during the fall. This [accident caused the resident] to sustain a bump on her head and be transferred to an Acute Care Hospital Emergency Department.”
A family member stated to the investigators that the resident “was admitted to the facility following hospitalization for a fall, which had resulted in fractured ribs and a left clavicle (collarbone).” After the fall at the facility, the resident “was admitted to the Acute Care Hospital Intensive Unit for five days after [sustaining] a hematoma, bleeding outside of her brain, and a new fracture of her vertebrae.” The family member stated that “they felt the resident [had fallen] due to not being properly supervised.”
The nursing home "failed to ensure [one resident] was free from physical restraints when positioning wedges were placed under the resident’s mattress bilaterally. This failure had the potential to cause the resident psychological and physical harm.”
A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) stated that the resident “had a recent fall in the facility.” The CNA said that the resident “was a fall risk, and they were using floor mats and wedges to keep them safe.”
However, documentation indicates that the resident “had an unwitnessed fall on June 7, 2019, at 4:15 AM while getting out of bed.”
