According to investigators, “the facility failed to ensure a fall Care Plan was developed and implemented [for a resident that] was at risk for falls.” The investigators reviewed the resident’s May 24, 2018 Fall Risk Assessment that revealed the “resident was at risk for falls related to one or two falls in the past three months and requires restraint or assistance with elimination, problems with a gait belt, balance while standing, balance while walking.” The resident has “decreased muscle coordination, changing gait pattern when walking through a doorway, jerking and unstable when making turns, and one to two predisposing diseases.”
Even with the serious complications, there was “not an interim fall Plan of Care and place on admission.” A review of an Incident Note dated May 26, 2018, and the nurses note indicated the resident “complained of a little pain to the left elbow, right knee, and left side/abdomen. Redness was noted on the left elbow, and it was tender to touch. Redness was also noted on the right knee which was not tender.”
The incident note “did not indicate that the resident fell but the review of the fall investigation revealed “the resident] was alert and utilized a walker and a wheelchair.” The resident had claimed that they had “been walking with a walker when he took a ride onto the floor. The resident was observed lying face down on his abdomen.”
At the time of the accident, the resident “was in bare feet, and the intervention was nonslip socks.” A Registered Nurse (RN) verified that the resident “was on a fall risk on admission, [and] a fall Plan of Care was not put into place in the resident had a fall on May 26, 2018, two days after admission.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure one resident’s pain was timely and adequately addressed. Actual harm occurred when [the resident] requested assistance into bed; it was not timely assisted, resulting in increasing pain to the lower back described by the resident as excruciating, and subsequently affecting his daily activities.”
The survey team reviewed the resident’s Pain Assessment that revealed: “the resident had almost constant pain on his torso that limits day-to-day activities.” The resident stated: “it is excruciating [to remain in] the wheelchair for long periods due to sciatic pain.”
