- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date September 14, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to report an injury of unknown origin to the Division of Health Care Facilities (DHCS) within two hours” as required by law.
The document shows that on July 16, 2017, the resident “sustained fractures to the left tibia and fibula, which required surgery to repair.” The resident “was unable to explain how the injury occurred and this incident was not witnessed. This injury of unknown origin was not reported to the DHCF until [the following day].”
A review of the resident’s medical records indicated that the resident had been “assessed as needing supervision with walking in the room and the corridor and with locomotion on-and-off the unit.” Departmental Notes documented on July 17, 2017, indicated that the resident was “alert and oriented to self only.” A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) “had reported seeing the resident in the main dining room area after ‘my own last sighting of him/her.’ Only minutes afterward, a staff member from the kitchen reported seeing the resident outside by the dumpster.”
The staff member ran outside and found the resident standing/leaning on the wall near the dumpster on the outside of the main dining room. The resident had “sustained an abrasion to his/her right forearm near the elbow, and [the resident’s] left side was moderately bloody.”
By approximately 7:10 PM that night, the resident “was then back inside via a wheelchair for further assessment and treatment. When the bloody sock was removed, there was an abrasion to his/her great toe and a right protrusion from inside the resident’s left ankle.” The “protrusion did not break the skin and was possibly a break or fracture.”
