- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date February 28, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home failed to report an injury from an unwitnessed fall involving one resident. It was documented that the resident’s daughter visited the previous day and the day of the incident and left after dinner time when the resident “fell out of bed on the floor.”
The nursing staff indicated that there were no visible injuries. However, the resident complained of pain in the left arm and bilateral hips. The nursing staff ordered an x-ray as soon as possible and contacted the son without response. The nursing staff was awaiting a call back from the son and made the Physician aware, who prescribed pain medication.
Later that evening, the resident refused to take pain medications. The Physician ordered an x-ray of the left shoulder and hips. The nursing staff began performing neurological checks in the areas where the resident complained of pain.
The nursing home spoke with the contracted x-ray company about the results of the resident’s x-ray. However, the company stated that “we only have one radiologist, due to the busy weekend schedule, there is no one available to read the x-ray results yet.”
The doctor then ordered that 911 EMS transport the patient to the emergency room via stretcher. At that time, the resident’s family was present for the transfer. The doctor gave orders for an “evaluation of a fracture of the right femoral neck and a minimal displaced intertrochanteric fracture of the left hip” caused by a fall.
However, a review of the resident’s incident log revealed that there “was no documentation of witnessed or unwitnessed falls.” The facility Health Services Director said “we fill out a falls pack and the nurse who witnessed the fall was supposed to document it. If we know about it, we document it, report it, and it goes in the log.” The Director of Nursing confirmed that the facility had failed to conduct an internal investigation surrounding the fall.
