- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date March 1, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure the fall precautions were in place for [two residents that were] reviewed for falls at the facility.” One incident involved a resident who “had short-term and long-term memory problems and her cognitive skills for decision-making were moderately impaired.”
The documentation shows the resident “needed extensive assistance [of] one-person physical assist for transfer. She sustained two falls since the prior assessment, one fall without injury, one with an injury.”
The resident’s care plans indicated that “she was care planned for the risk for falls and related injury due to weakness, unsteady gait, confusion, and agitation, [a medical condition], associated tremors, and daily anxiety medication use.” The nursing staff added “an approach of chair alarms to prevent falls.”
However, a few weeks earlier on January 22, 2018, the Incident Note documented that “[the resident] was noted to be in the common area and attempted to transfer self and fell to the floor. [The resident] has a hematoma on the head and no other complaints. [The resident] was not to be in the common area alone.”
When the investigative team observed the resident in the dining room, the resident was sitting in a wheelchair without a personal alarm in the chair. A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) “was also in the dining room at the time and confirmed the findings. She stated [the resident] should have a chair alarm that was a pad she sat on connected to a box.”
The investigators interviewed a second CNA who stated the resident was already up when she came in this morning and stated that “[the resident] has a bed alarm, chair alarm, and mats down” on the floor. The CNA said that the alarm is to be in the chair and turned on.
The investigators asked the CNA if she placed a brief on the resident after using the bathroom before placing the resident “back in bed.” The CNA admitted that she had gotten the resident back up but had forgotten to place the alarm in the wheelchair.
