- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date August 17, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “let go of a resident while giving care to [one resident] reviewed for accidents.” The deficient practice resulted “in a fall, causing the re-opening of the wound and being transported to the hospital.”
A review of the resident’s Significant Change MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment showed that the moderately, cognitively impaired resident “needed extensive to total assistance for all activities of daily living [and] was totally dependent for bathing and required the assistance of two persons.”
A review of the resident’s Wound Progress Notes Assessment dated July 17, 2018, revealed that the resident “was seen for a chronic post-operative wound to the left abdomen [measuring 2.0 cm x 0.8 cm x 0.1 cm].” The Nurse Progress Note dated July 20, 2018, revealed that the resident “slid out of bed during a bed bath.” The resident was found “on her knees on the floor beside the bed” and was assisted back to bed where the abdominal wound was noted to have reopened and was bleeding.
The Physician Assistant was notified, and “an order was given to transport the resident to the hospital.” A Nursing Aide documented that while giving the resident a bath, “she was always able to hold onto the side rail.” At this time, “her hands were shaky, and he had not noticed that before.” The Nurse Aide “turned to get a towel or toward the washbasin and let go of the resident [who then] slid off the mattress and onto the floor on her knees.”
