The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure the resident was kept safe by removing the resident from the wheelchair before wheelchair maintenance was performed.”
The Director of Nursing Services verbalized that the resident “had fallen while in his room on July 9, 2019, and the Director of Maintenance was present during the fall.” The Director of Maintenance stated that on that morning, the resident “had asked to have the wheels of the wheelchair changed, as [the] resident was going to be out of the facility later in the day.”
The Director of Maintenance explained he went to the resident’s room, “lifted the wheelchair by the leg while the resident was still seated in the wheelchair and attempted to remove the wheel.” At that point, the resident “fell backward out of the wheelchair and bumped the back of [their] head against the nightstand, causing redness and a small bump.”
The “facility failed to ensure staff performed hand hygiene per policy after wound care dressing changes and before medication administration.” A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) “cleaned the surgical site with normal saline, patted it dry and covered it with the dressing. Then the LPN attempted to instill [the resident’s] eyes with an Artificial Tears solution and administer [medication] without removing gloves and washing hands.”
The LPN was stopped before she could instill the eye drops. The LPN “confirmed she should have discarded the gloves, washed her hands, and then administered the medication. The LPN verbalized not washing hands after changing the dressing would spread infections.”
