Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date June 26, 2018
The state investigators determined the “facility did not ensure that the resident environment remained as free of accident hazards as was possible.” The nursing home failed to ensure that the resident “received adequate supervision and assistance devices to prevent accidents. Specifically, the resident fell and sustained a wrist fracture after the staff did not respond to her call light timely.”
Documentation at the facility noted by a Registered Nurse (RN) indicated that the resident had an unwitnessed fall, and the patient was found on the floor. It was noted that the resident had been sitting upright in front of her closet with their walker in front of her. The resident reported that “she hit her head when she fell and that she was experiencing pain in her left wrist” that was swollen. However, there was no bruising but pain during an assessment of the resident’s range of motion.
The report indicated that “she was trying to change her pants without assistance and lost her balance.” The resident “was educated [before] in the shift to use the call light.” An x-ray of the resident’s risk identified a “mildly displaced comminuted intra-articular distal radius fracture.”
A review of the Call Light Event Report for that date indicated that the resident had turned “her call light on at 7:05 PM, [and] it was cleared sixteen minutes later at 7:21 PM.” Later, the resident had used her call light at 9:05 PM and it was cleared twelve minutes later. Finally, the resident had turned her call light on “at 11:08 PM, and [and] it was cleared thirty-seven minutes later at 11:45 PM” when the resident “was found on the floor by the Aide.”Abused at Copper Ridge Health Care Nursing Center?
