- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date May 24, 2018
The state investigators determined the nursing home "neglected to implement a Care Plan intervention related to falls.” The intervention would ensure that the resident “was not to be left alone in the bathroom when she was assisted with toileting.” Instead, the resident “was assisted to the bathroom by a Nursing Assistant, who exited the bathroom to retrieve items from the resident’s room.”
During that time, the resident “fell as she attempted to transfer independently from the toilet to her wheelchair, while unattended by staff . The fall resulted in [the resident] sustaining a subarachnoid hemorrhage (bleeding in the space between the brain and the tissue covering the brain).” The resident also received “a subdermal hematoma (pool of blood between the brain and the outermost covering).”
A review of the resident’s Plan of Care had a focus area with the potential for falls. The area “was initiated on November 28, 2016 and reviewed on January 12, 2018. The interventions included, in part, [that the staff is to monitor the resident] during toileting tasks if assisted to the bathroom. Transfer [the resident] back to the chair/bed. Do not leave the resident alone in the bathroom.”
An Incident Report, dated March 1, 2018, indicated that the resident “had an unwitnessed fall with an injury on March 1, 2018, at 8:15 AM.” The resident’s “injuries were noted as a skin tear (superficial), bruise/redness and a hematoma.”
Documentation shows that the resident “had fallen from the toilet and onto the floor as she was attempting to transfer into her wheelchair.” The resident “was noted to have two skin tears; one to the left elbow and one to the left knee.”
The Nurse Aide reported that “after she transferred [the resident] from her wheelchair to the toilet , she stepped out of the bathroom to pick up the resident’s nightgown and linens from the floor in her room.” The Nurse Aide indicated that “while she was outside of the bathroom, she heard [the resident] scream. She noted that [the resident] had not called out verbally for her assistance, and she had not rung the call bell.”
