The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to notify the administrator and report an adverse event and possible neglect of care to the State Agency when a staff member failed to lock a tub chair resulting in a fall of [one resident].”
The investigation involved a cognitively intact resident who “requires physical assistance with bathing.” The resident’s Care Plan indicated “he was at risk for falls related to left-sided weakness.”
The resident stated during an interview that he “was receiving his bath and the lot gave way. He stated the chair went backward and he fell into the tub.” The resident stated that “he had a sore wrist a couple of days later.”
The resident indicated that the nursing staff to take in an x-ray in the wrist “was not broken.” The resident stated “the incident occurred in the old bathtub and stated a new tub was installed a couple of months ago.”
A Nursing Assistant stated they had been assisting him the day of the incident and “received assistance from two other staff to assist him up and back into the tub chair and ensure the chair was locked into place.”
A review of the resident apposite as Progress Notes dated between June 2, 2016 through April 19, 2017, “lacked evidence and investigation had been completed related to his fall in the bathtub, nor was there evidence the administrator or State Agency been notified of the potential neglect of care.”
The administrator stated during an interview on April 19, 2017 that “he was not aware [the resident] sustained a fall in the bathtub [saying that] an incident report had not been completed on this fall [and that] a fall had not been reported to him and an investigation had not been completed.”
