- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date March 1, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure residents had adequate supervision to prevent falls for [one resident] reviewed for falls.” The investigation involved a severely, cognitively impaired resident who “requires extensive assistance of one person for transfers, ambulation, dressing, eating, grooming, and bathing.” The resident had limited functionality of the upper extremities.
The resident was admitted to the facility with a left humerus and ulna fracture. These injuries “would be conservatively managed.” The resident also had “a small right convexity subdural hematoma (collection of blood in the brain on the top right side of the head) and a large left superior convexity subdural hematoma.”
The resident’s Care Plan indicated that the patient “refuses care, [was] combative, agitated, [with] disorganized thoughts.” The resident “had a problem of being at risk for orthopedic complications related to a fall with fractures, a refusal to wear a C-collar (cervical collar), and noncompliant with weight-bearing status from the humerus and ulna fracture.” A review of the Provider Progress Notes indicated that the resident was experiencing nausea without vomiting and “did not have any recent falls.”
The staff initiated neurological checks because “she does have a history of a recently new subdural hematoma.” A review of the Post-Fall Initial Note revealed that the resident “was found lying on the floor in a fetal position in the activities room.”
The document indicated that “she had been walking in the room unassisted.” After the fall, the resident experienced pain and an x-ray revealed a Right Fracture Femur. The patient was sent to the emergency room for an evaluation.
After receiving treatment, the resident was transferred from the hospital to hospice, where she expired. The State Medical Examiner indicated on the death certificate that the cause of death was an “acute right femur fracture [with a] contributing cause [of a] chronic left subdural hematoma, and the death was accidental.”
