- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date October 31, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home failed to provide “adequate assistance for [3 residents] observed during staff -assisted transfers.” This failure “to ensure staff properly used assistive devices place residents at risk for accidents with or without injury.”
The state investigators reviewed the resident’s Current Care Plan that guided the staff to transfer the resident using a set-two-standing medium proceeded transfers. The documentation shows that the resident had an actual fall and an extensive history of falls and was at risk for falls due to poor balance.
Additionally, “the resident has impaired cognitive function/dementia or impaired thought processes” that involve “forgetfulness, confusion, disorientation, and poor safety awareness.”
The resident’s Medical Records revealed that in October 2018, the resident “lost consciousness on the stand lift while toileting this afternoon [and that the] husband was aware.” The documentation shows of the resident “did not follow the lift, safely transfer to her recliner chair” and that the medical doctor was notified.”
Two days later on October 26, 2018, “while the resident was in the stand lift, she let go with her hands being held up only by the lift pad. The resident shouted, ‘oh my God, help me.’” A review of a previous event occurring in July 2018 revealed that “staff relate them when we are assisting the resident to the bathroom and when assisting her out, she let go of the bars, lean forward, and buckled her knees.” The staff was “able to assist her into the recliner. After being readjusted, the staff were able to stand her back up with the assistive to present and the use of about the strep.” The resident “was hollering out at staff”
By October 20, 2018, while in the bathroom, a CNA “stepped away the resident slipped out of the sling [from the lift], and with the buckle still in place, was found sitting on the floor plate of the stand lift with a bruise to the right front and rear knee and a skin tear to the elbow.”
