- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date July 3, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to thoroughly investigate and failed to timely report a fall from a lift for [one resident] who fell from the sit to stand lift.”
The investigators reviewed the resident’s Quarterly MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment indicated that the resident “had no cognitive impairment and requires extensive assistance from two staff with all transfers.” A review of the Facility Incident Report indicated that the resident “was Lower to the floor/slipped out of the sit to stand sling.” The resident stated that “the sling was properly last, but somehow came lose causing the resident to go to the floor.”
The resident “complained of a backache and pain in the groin. The incident report indicated that the Nursing Assistant received education and training and [the resident] was referred to therapy to evaluate transfers. The report indicated the incident did not require notification to the State Agency.”
The Facility Report to the State dated January 20, 2017 indicated that the resident “slipped out of the left on December 2, 2016, and was lowered to the floor. No injuries were noted although the resident complained of pain in his back. The investigation was being reopened because the resident was reporting increased pain in his left thigh and an x-ray on January 19, 2017 indicated the resident had a left super pubic ramus fracture.”
The follow-up report indicated that the Care Plan “was not follow, which requires two staff to transfer [the resident] using a sit to stand lift.” The Nursing Assistant was interviewed and stated that when raising the resident “in the lift, he heard a snap and the resident started to slowly fall and [the Nursing Assistant lowered the resident] to the floor.”
At that time, the resident “was sitting on his buttocks on the floor, his knees up, his left leg was bowed out and he was leaning on his right side.” It was suggested that the incident was not reported to the State agency because “it happened by no one’s fault because the strep came unhooked.”
