The nursing home “neglected to monitor and assess a resident for a change in condition when the resident became unresponsive following the fall and subsequently died.” This “failure placed the resident at high risk of harm from neglect and placed the facility in an Immediate Jeopardy Situation.”
The investigative team reviewed the resident’s clinical records that revealed the resident had “sustained four falls.” In one incident, the resident “was found lying on the floor near his bed. The facility documentation related to the fall revealed that the fall was unwitnessed, and the resident sustained [injuries to the right shoulder and knee] as a result of the fall.”
Notations also show that the “covering of the resident’s night light had shattered as a result of the fall.” After the resident had fallen, two Nurse Aides and a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) “transferred the resident into a wheelchair and brought the resident out to the nurse’s station for the staff to monitor him.”
After another fall, the resident “had been found unresponsive (unarousable) at approximately 7:15 AM.” The resident “was subsequently pronounced dead at 7:17 AM.” However, “the neurological evaluation form completed by [a staff member] indicated that she had taken the resident’s vital signs and completed a neurological evaluation at 7:20 AM.”
The Assistant Director of Nursing was told by the staff member that “she had not completed the 7:20 AM neurological evaluation and that she had falsified the documentation.”
According to state surveyors, “it was determined the facility failed to complete a comprehensive investigation and the medication found on the resident’s trash can.” The resident’s clinical record and nursing Progress Note revealed that housekeeping staff approached a Licensed Nurse Supervisor indicating that the resident “had pills in his trash can.”
The medication found in the trash can is used to “treat moving sickness.” The nursing note indicated that the staff advised the resident “he should not have or take medication the doctors and nurses do not know about because it may contradict to medication he is taking daily.”
The survey team interviewed the Acting Nursing Home Administrator who “confirmed that the facility did not complete a comprehensive investigation into the medication that the housekeeping staff person found in [the resident’s] trash can in the resident’s room.”
