- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date January 23, 2019
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to ensure safety precautions were utilized to prevent a resident from being hit by a meal tray hall cart which resulted in two fractures to the resident’s left leg.” A review of the facility reported incident form dated January 14, 2019, indicated that the resident had reported to the Unit Manager that a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) “was passing hall trays and accidentally ran into him while he was asleep in his wheelchair.”
The CNA documented in a written statement on the same day that “she did not see the resident until it was too late, and she thought she had hit his chair. The resident did not complain of pain at the time and said he was all right.”
A second CNA indicated that she had yelled at the other CNA “to stop, but it was too late.” The nursing staff assessed the resident’s leg the following day and “observed a hard area with some protruding noted around the knee of the left leg. An x-ray was ordered, and [the resident] was sent to the hospital for treatment.”
The Radiology Report from the day of the event revealed that the resident had an acute fracture of the left lower leg bone and another fracture just below the knee of the lower leg bone.
The Director of Nursing stated during an interview eight days after the incident that “the resident had not returned to the facility as he had surgery on his leg on January 18, 2019.”
The second CNA who had witnessed the event “indicated that she did not think the resident had been asleep in his chair. He was sitting in the hallway near the exit where the residents go out to smoke.” The reporting CNA indicated that “she was standing on the right side of the cart and [the resident] was on the left side of the cart, and she did not see him until it was too late.”
