- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date April 2, 2018
- Failure to Provide Appropriate Treatment and Care According to Orders, Resident’s Preferences and Goals – citation #F684 date April 30, 2019
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to provide the appropriate supervision or assistive devices to prevent a fall with injury” for two residents “who were at risk for falls.”
In one incident, the resident “rarely or never made daily decisions related to poor cognition and short and long-term memory deficits” who “requires extensive two-person assistance with transfers in or out of the chair and bed.” The resident’s Care Plan identified that the resident “was at risk for falls.”
The facility SBAR (Situation, Background, Assessment, Recommendation) dated February 3, 2018, identified “the cushion had moved, and the resident was lying on his/her right side in front of the wheelchair, and the supervisor was called.” A Reportable Event Form indicated that the resident “was found on the floor in front of his/her wheelchair and the cushion had moved on the wheelchair. The facility’s investigation identified the wheelchair cushion slid forward, causing the resident to slide to the floor.”
A Nurse Note documented nearly twelve hours later that after the resident had been transferred to bed, the resident “complained of pain in the right hip and the right lower back and subsequent to notification the Physician ordered an x-ray.” The x-ray results were positive for injury.”
The facility “failed to ensure the resident received quality care when she/he exhibited a change in condition. The investigation involved a resident who “had impaired/declining cognition related to dementia and behavioral disturbances.”
A Nurse’s Note dated August 24, 2018, identified that a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) had left a note for a Physician Assistant to follow up and evaluate the resident. However, the note “failed to reflect a change in the resident’s condition had been assessed by a Registered Nurse (RN).”
The LPN “could not recall if she/he had notified the Registered Nurse (RN) Supervisor of the change in the resident’s condition.” The Director of Nursing indicated that “the medical record failed to identify that this had been completed.”
