- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents - citation #F689 date January 25, 2019
- In a separate summary statement of deficiencies, dated November 10, 2016, the "facility failed to ensure the resident environment, over which it had control, was free of accident hazards as [is] possible." The nursing home "failed to provide supervision to [a resident] with toileting."
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure the resident environment, over which the facility has control, [is] free from accident hazards as [is] possible." The resident was observed with "several medications left unattended in his room."
Additionally, the resident's medical records found that "the staff also left medication in the resident's room. This [failure] was a random opportunity of discovery." The state investigators asked a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) to come into the room and asked about the cup of medicine. The LPN stated, "I did that, I should [not have left] them there. I thought he was going to take them."
The resident "fell in the bathroom while attempting to toilet herself. These findings resulted in the determination of the Immediate Jeopardy, due to the potential for harm to residents."
The investigators reviewed the Incident and Accident Reports [which] indicated that the resident "had a fall in the Resident Restroom located in the hallway between the 300 and 400 Hallways." The staff was alerted to go into the restroom after hearing "a loud banging noise on the restroom door."
The nursing staff found the resident on the floor of the Resident Restroom "on her right side. She was complaining of severe hip pain, had a large abrasion on her left lower back, and was unable to roll to her back."
The report indicated that the resident "was incontinent of bowel and appeared to have slipped in the feces on the floor in front of the toilet. Her chair alarm was not sounding and was in the off position."
An x-ray revealed that the resident "had an acute left hip fracture, which requires surgical repair."
