- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date July 20, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to provide supervision to prevent an accident resulting in harm for [one resident].” Specifically, the nursing home “failed to ensure handrails were in good repair on two of three units in the facility.”
Also, facility staff “failed to ensure the safe condition of handrails. Handrails had damaged areas which sharp exposed edges on the second and third floor living units.”
The Clinical Record and Nurse’s Note documented that “at approximately 6:36 AM, the resident went downstairs to the lobby, in which the resident does every day, and throughout the day, the resident went down this morning and went outside through the automatic sliding doors.” The document says that the resident “is independently mobile once assisted by [one-person] into her wheelchair, she uses a left-sided leg rest while up in the wheelchair due to post-CVA (stroke) though she does use the upper right lower extremity to wheel herself.”
However, this time, the wandering resident “lost control of her wheelchair when going outdoors and the wheelchair appeared to go down the sidewalk, which does have an incline and proceeded onto the blacktop approximately 10-15 feet before the wheelchair flipped over.” The resident “was assisted immediately by employees (several) coming into work that morning. After interviewing multiple staff members, it is known for sure that the resident was not outside at 6:30 AM, per staff, whom reported to work at this time [and] parking in the nearby parking lot which has a 100% view of the facility entrance where the resident was noted to have fallen.”
The staff arriving at the scene immediately phoned 911, and the resident was assessed “by several nurses.” Emergency Medical technicians arrived “within approximately five minutes and took over assessing.” The resident “was noted to have some abrasion/injuries to her face.” The doctor and ombudsman were notified of the incident.
