- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Acts or Report of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date June 2, 2017
- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation date August 23, 2018
According to state surveyors, “the facility failed to report an injury of unknown origin. This [deficient practice] affected one resident reviewed for possible abuse.” The incident involved a resident who has “unclear speech, was rarely/never understood, had short and long-term memory impairment, no recall, and severely impaired decision-making [processes].”
The investigators reviewed the resident’s nursing note that revealed the resident had a “faint bluish area noted on the resident’s left cheek that measured five centimeters by three centimeters.” The resident had a Physician’s orders to “monitor the bruise on her left cheek/jaw every shift until healed.”
Medical Records stated that a possible cause of the bruise was that it occurred as a bump during care. Documentation shows a Registered Nurse (RN) wrote a statement revealing the bruise to the resident’s left shin, stating that the staff was questioned and “no unusual reports were given. The resident could be combative with care. The staff was educated.”
The Director of Nursing confirmed during an interview that the resident’s bruise on the left shin and jaw “was suspicious in nature and was of an unknown source. The Director of Nursing also confirmed the injury of an unknown source was not reported” as required by law.
The nursing home “failed to ensure an avoidable fall was prevented for [a resident] by not maintaining the outside deck area in a manner to prevent accidents.” The incident involved a resident whose Fall Risk Assessment revealed them to be “a high risk for falls. Risk factors included being chair bone, not being able to test his gait/balance, requiring assistive devices (cane and wheelchair), taking one or more medications that increase the risk for falls.”
The investigators reviewed the resident’s Nurse’s Progress Note that revealed and State-Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA) “alerted the nurse that the resident was on the floor of the facility’s outside deck. The nurse observed the resident lying on his backside with his head and shoulders against the exterior wall of the building. The wheelchair remained under the resident’s buttocks but in a turned over position with the front wheels up in the air.
Observations of the deck were made at the location where the resident “had his fall.” It was revealed that “the deck continued to have warped boards that resulted in an uneven surface that posed an accident hazard.” The deck had a “raised board to the right that posed a tripping hazard.”
