The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to report a significant injury of unknown origin to the State Agency within the required time frame for [one resident].” A review of the resident’s Progress Note dated May 15, 2018 revealed that the resident “was found on the floor in the room and had a head injury that requires [the resident] to be transferred to the emergency room for stitches to the forehead.”
A review of the Facts Report documented that the significant injury was submitted to the State Agency on May 30, 2018, “eleven working days after the incident occurred.” This delayed reporting was in violation of federal and state regulations.

The investigators reviewed the resident’s Progress Note that revealed “no documentation that the written report of investigation of the fall was significant injury was submitted to the State Agency within the required time frame.”
