Failure to Immediately Notify the Resident, the Resident's Doctor or the Resident's Responsible Party of a Serious Decline in Their Medical Condition and Failure to Properly Investigate an Incident Resulting in the Resident's Death - citation date October 6, 2017
According to surveyors, the facility "failed to notify the Physician of a resident's change in mental status." Documentation revealed that the resident became "entrapped between the side rails on the bed and the air mattress, resulting in death."
The investigative team determined that "the situation in which the facility's noncompliance with one or more requirements of participation had caused, or had the likelihood to cause, serious injury, harm, impairment or death to residents."
A review of the resident's Nurse's Notes revealed that the resident "slipped or fell from his/her air mattress and bed and became entrapped between the side rail and air mattress and expired. The facility's investigation failed to identify if the resident's bed pressure alarm was functioning at the time of the incident and how the resident became entrapped between the side rails and the air mattress."
The investigators documented that the facility "failed to assess side rails and to conduct their own investigation of the [incident] and relied on statements obtained by the Sheriff's Department." The home failed to follow the written policy involving an investigation because the reports "did not include witness statements from the staff on duty at the time of the incident and [before] the incident."
Failure to Provide Appropriate Care for a Resident to Maintain or Improve Their Range of Motion - citation date November 1, 2018
The state investigators determined "the facility failed to apply a right hand/wrist splint to prevent further contractures for one resident." The survey team observed a resident on multiple occasions between October 30, 2018, and November 1, 2018, that revealed the resident had "no splint applied to the right hand/wrist contracture. The splint was observed in a chair on the other side of the resident's room."
A review of the resident's Rehab Certified Nursing Assistant Roster revealed "no documentation related to the splint/brace application" between that time frame.
