- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date September 14, 2017
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to thoroughly evaluate resident falls and ensure interventions were in place or implemented after a resident had multiple falls.”
The surveyors reviewed the resident’s medical records, and Fall Plan of Care that revealed: “interventions included [keep the] bed in the lowest position, have commonly used items within reach and parameter mattress.” However, review of the resident’s Treatment Administration Record revealed that “there was no documentation to ensure interventions were in place.”
A review of Fall Investigations revealed that the resident fell on two occasions on and before July 15, 2017. However, “the investigations did not attempt to determine if the resident fell from the bed or the wheelchair. There was no evidence the interventions were in place, or any new intervention was put into place after the fall.”
A review of a Fall Investigation indicated that the resident again “fell out of bed on July 29, 2017. The investigation did not indicate if any interventions were in place, and no new interventions were put into place.” A subsequent Fall Investigation indicated that the resident fell again.
This “investigation did not attempt to determine if the resident fell from the bed or the wheelchair or what interventions were in place. The new intervention was to ensure non-skid socks [were on] at all times.”
Another Fall Investigation revealed that the resident fell again. The resident “was found on the floor in her room and fell out of her wheelchair and was not in a common area as care planned. There was no evidence the non-skin socks were on as planned, and no new interventions were put into place.”
Another Fall Investigation revealed that the resident fell once more. The “nurse observed the resident walking in her room toward the door and fell. The resident sustained [injuries]. The investigation did not indicate what interventions were in place. The resident was sent to the hospital [after a fall] and did not return to the facility.”
The Director of Nursing verified that “if any interventions were tracked, they would be on the task sheet for the State-tested Nursing Assistants’ or on the Treatment Administration Records for the nurses.” The Director “verified there were none for [this resident].”
