- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date December 1, 2016
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to implement fall safety interventions for [a facility resident].” Specifically, “the facility staff failed to implement fall interventions for [one resident] per Physician’s orders.”
The investigation involved a cognitively intact resident who “requires extensive assistance to being totally dependent on one to two staff members for activities of daily living” and “bed mobility and total assistance of two staff members for transfers.” The resident had a limited range of motion and “was impaired on both sides of the upper shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, and lower hip, knee, ankle, and foot extremities.”
The resident was observed at 3:00 PM, “sitting up in bed watching television. A measurement of the resident’s bed, using a wooden folding ruler provided by the surveyor, from the bottom of the frame to the floor revealed seventeen inches from the floor.” This measurement remained the same at 4:30 PM, and at 8:30 AM the next morning, the measurement was fourteen inches from the bottom of the bed frame to the floor. That measurement remained the same at 2:45 AM.
A review of the Interdisciplinary Progress Note dated August 5, 2016, indicated that at 10:15 PM, the resident “fell from the bed to the floor on [their] side during incontinence care by a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA).” The CNA stated that “he had positioned the resident on his right side during care on the bed. The resident rolled over, fell down on the floor, on his side.”
The resident denied “hitting his head on the floor.” The CNA denied that the resident hit his head on the floor. A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) who provides the resident care accompanied the surveyor to the resident’s room to measure the height of the bed. The LPN confirmed that the bed was not in its lowest position. This low position was confirmed by the facility Administrator and Director of Clinical Services.
