- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date June 21, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure the nursing staff did not lose physical contact with the resident’s body while repositioning the resident during care, and anticipated the resident’s needs to safely reposition and prevent the resident from falling to the floor.” The deficient practice “resulted in the resident’s fall on the floor, sustaining mild scalp swelling to the top of the head.”
The state investigators made an unannounced visit to investigate a complaint allegation about the resident hitting “his head on the bed during a fall.” A Restorative Nursing Assistant stated during an interview that a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and herself were attempting to roll the resident “to his right side per the order to reposition every two hours to decrease the risk of skin degradation.”
The Restorative Nurse Aide stated that “through miscommunication, both the CNA and [she] lost physical contact with the resident’s body, and the resident began to slide over the side of the bed.” The Aide explained that “she held onto the resident’s leg so that the resident would not hit his head.”
A Licensed Vocational Nurse passing by her room “assisted to softly place the resident down on the floor with his head softly touching first.” The Restorative Nursing Aide “finally stated that she was placed on probation for ten days while the investigation of the event took place.”
The Witnessed Fall Documents/Investigative Report concluded that the resident “slid down to the floor headfirst. According to the written conclusion, the resident requires two staff to transfer and reposition. However, the resident suffered an accidental slippage from the bed to the floor.”
The Administrative Director notified the resident’s family member of the resident’s apparent fall. The same document indicates that “a Physician was notified of the incident and orders were written relative to the accident.” X-rays revealed “no intracranial hemorrhage (bleeding) or shift of the brain.” There was “no underlying fracture.”
