- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date April 13, 2016
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “did not ensure that the resident environment remained as free of accident hazards as was possible. Specifically, the resident’s tab alarm was not observed to be placed properly, and multiple call lights were observed to be out of the resident’s reach.”
The state investigators interviewed the Assistant Director of Nursing, who stated that this resident “had two falls since admission.” The survey team interviewed the resident who was lying “in bed with a tab alarm on the bed next to her but not attached to [the resident, who stated that] he did not use an alarm.”
Two days later at 9:00 AM, the surveyors made a second observation and interviewed the resident who “was lying in bed with no shirt on. The tab alarm was lying next to him on the bed not clipped to [him].” The resident stated, “he did not want to continue to fall [and said that] staff responded after he fell because they had heard him fall.”
The resident said that “he would like to have an alarm that sounded to alert the staff when he started to get out of bed.” The survey team reviewed the resident’s Physician’s orders that indicated that the nurse is to “verify placement and function on every shift.”
Two Fall Risk Evaluations documented on March 27, 2016, revealed that the resident “was at High Risk for Falls.” However, a subsequent evaluation dated March 30, 2016, revealed that the resident “was at Medium Risk for Falls.” The final evaluation, dated April 12, 2016, revealed that “the resident was at High Risk for Falls.”
A review of the resident’s Nurse’s Notes revealed that on March 22, 2016, just after dinner time, the nurse “saw the resident sitting on the floor in the doorway of his room. It was noted that the resident’s bed was in a low position; the resident’s oxygen cannula was lying on the bed. The nurse asked the resident what happened.” The resident responded “Am I on the floor? I do not know how I got on the floor.”
