- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date May 20, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to prevent a fall” for one resident with a history of falls. The deficient practice by the nursing staff resulted in the resident “sustaining a hematoma and bleeding to his forehead due to a fall and placed the resident at risk for further injuries.”
At 2:30 PM on March 21, 2019, the state investigators investigated a complaint at the facility. The investigators reviewed the Hospital Pre-History and Physical Examination that indicated that the resident “complained of left hip pain after sustaining a mechanical fall two weeks ago. There were also possible additional falls more recently, but [it] could [not] be verified because no family was available.” The resident “declined with time and was a poor historian due to dementia.”
A Nurse’s Note indicated that the resident “was transferred to the bed with assistance from two staff and was alert with periods of forgetfulness and confusion.” The resident’s Care Plan for High Risk for Falls indicated that the resident was to “be free from falls or injury due to falls.” A Care Plan involving impulsive behavior dated March 15, 2019, indicated that the resident was “to have no episodes of falls and no fall-related injuries.”
However, the Communication Form dated March 16, 2019, at 3:45 PM indicated that the resident was found “sitting on the floor in his room.” The resident “was trying to use the restroom [and] was confused and forgetful. Upon assessment he had a 1-inch laceration on his right eyebrow and a bump to the right upper head.”
When the surveyors entered the facility, they noted the resident with “dark purple bruising [and] swelling to the right eye and steri strips (wound closure strips) to the right eyebrow.” The resident stated that “he did not remember if he fell or how he got the injuries on his face. There were no floor mats on either side of the bed.”
A Licensed Vocational Nurse indicated that the resident “sustained a fall when newly admitted to the facility and that [the resident] now had a tab alarm, [that] was virtually checked every half hour as needed, when the alarm was sounded, these interventions were affected.” However, the resident attempted to “get out of bed unassisted.”
