- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation date May 15, 2018
According to investigators, “the facility failed to ensure resident received supervision or failed to implement and modify interventions and prevent falls.” As a result of this failure, the resident sustained injuries.
The state surveyors reviewed the resident’s Care Plan that guided the nursing staff to “assist the resident with one staff member for all transfers” and ensure that the resident is wearing non-skid socks. Additionally, the resident “needs a nightlight on to help see at night” and “uses an alarm” while in the chair or bed.
A review of the Incident Report dated October 6, 2017 documents that “the resident attempted to transfer herself from her wheelchair to her bed, slid to the floor, and did not sustain any injuries. The report did not document any steps to prevent a recurrence.”
A subsequent Incident Report dated November 1, 2017 documents that “the resident was sitting in her wheelchair, reach for her snacks, and slid to the floor. The report did not document any injuries.” The resident’s Quarterly Assessment dated December 9, 2017 documents that “the resident had moderately impaired cognition” and requires “extensive assistance of one person with bed mobility, transfers, toilet use, locomotion on the unit, and personal hygiene. The assessment documented the resident did not walk and could not feed herself.”
The resident’s December 9, 2017, Care Plan was “not updated with the intervention to put the snacks within reach of the resident” that was recommended in the November 1, 2017, Incident Report. An incident report dated January 27, 2018 documents that “the resident was found lying on the floor next to her bed. The report documents the resident complained of pain to her lower leg and had a three-inch bruise to her shin area.”
The resident was transferred to the local emergency room. The resident underwent an x-ray that day that documented injuries to the tibia and fibula in her lower leg.
