- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date May 28, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to follow its policy for fall management, provide the necessary supervision, and implement resident’s Care Plans for fall preventions for [two residents, who were] assessed to be at a high risk for falls.”
This “deficient practice resulted in [both residents] falling, sustaining injuries that required a transfer to a General Acute Care Hospital, undergoing surgeries, and receiving strong narcotic pain medications.” One resident “sustained a right femur (thigh bone fracture) and had an ORIF surgery (the surgery to repair a broken bone with screws, plates, rods, or pins to hold the broken bones together).”
The second resident “had a right femur fracture and underwent a surgical repair with an intramedullary rod placement.” A review of the first resident’s Fall Risk Assessment scored the resident as and eleven where a total score of ten or more represent a high risk. The resident had “an unsteady gait (walking), was only able to stabilize with staff assistance and requires a one-person physical assist for transfers and utilized a wheelchair as a mobile device.”
The resident “did not have the capacity to understand and make decisions.” On September 13, 2018, the resident “was observed with a right lateral lower leg skin tear.” The document stated that the resident was asked, “how did she sustain the skin tear? However, the resident could not answer.”
On December 20, 2018, at 8:30 AM, the resident fell and “was assisted back to bed and observed with an internal rotation of the right leg.” Later that day, the resident was noted to have a shorter right leg than their left leg and was experiencing pain at a level of eight where ten is the worst pain.
A Licensed Vocational Nurse stated that residents “who had an unwitnessed fall” should be educated on wheelchair safety measures. However, the Director of Nursing stated that “the facility did not have a fall program.”
