- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date January 10, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure that [three residents reviewed for accidents] received the appropriate supervision and assistance devices to prevent falls.” In one case, a resident “sustained a fall resulting in a right femur fracture while being transported in the facility’s minibus without the use of the seatbelt.”
Additionally, the resident “had at least thirteen falls in less than thirty days and [another resident] sustained at least six falls in forty-three days, one which resulted in a transfer to the hospital with staples to the head.” The facility “failed to conduct root cause analysis and implementation of new/effective interventions to prevent continued falls for [both residents].”
The state investigators interviewed a resident who “had a knee/leg immobilizer in place on the right lower extremity” while observed lying in bed. The resident “informed the surveyor that she had broken her leg and it really hurt. She stated she had an immobilizer on her leg after having surgery in which they had to put a plate into her femur.”
The resident stated that “this fracture occurred while on her first trip on the facility’s minibus while they went to the store. She stated the staff bolted her wheelchair to the minibus but did not belt her into the wheelchair.” The resident said that when the minibus stopped, “she fell out of her wheelchair and she was scrunched up into the wheelchair in front of her.”
The resident stated that after the accident had occurred, “[the Aide] and [Recreation Person] put her back in the wheelchair and buckled her into her wheelchair after the fall.” She stated that “it did not hurt that much at first, but it started hurting later. Subsequently, when she got back to the facility, they x-rayed her leg and found that “it was broken and sent her to the hospital.”
