The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to thoroughly investigate incidents with serious injury including a leg fracture, head injury, and a leg wound for [3 residents].”
One incident involved a review of a resident’s Significant Change MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment that showed that the resident “had rejected care one to three days during the assessment period.” The resident “requires extensive assistance from 2+ staff members [and] she was not steady when moving from the ceded to a standing position.”
The documentation shows that the resident “had two or more falls with one minor injury and one major injury.” One incident was documented on October 24, 2017 when the resident “was found on the floor in the bedroom, with no injuries noted, nurse Rose (neurological checks) started, and will continue to monitor.”
The document shows of the resident said that “she was attempting to get downstairs and fell on the floor.” The resident “began crawling to the door and yelling for help.” The staff used a Hoyer lift “to get the resident up to the wheelchair” and called “the administrator and family,” started neurological checks, and skin assessments.
The nursing home “failed to ensure wheelchair leg rests were not tied together for [one resident] who required or likes to be elevated and supported due to an ankle fracture.”
A review of an incident documented on March 31, 2018 indicated that an event “had occurred with a sit to stand lift and her left ankle was fractured. She had been referred to an orthopedic clinic and a cast was put on.”
