- 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 8, 2016
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to implement effective interventions and ensure the interventions in place were followed to reduce the risk of falls for a resident who sustained six falls ” between July 1, 2016, and September 2, 2016.
A review of the Risk Assessment indicated that the resident “had a fall within the last month and a fall within the last two to six months.” The resident was chairfast (ability to walk was severely limited or non-existent), mobility was very limited, but unable to make frequent [and] significant changes independently.” Also, the resident was “unable to independently stand and exhibited a loss of balance while standing.”
The resident was taking psychoactive drugs , had a history of falls, an unsteady gait, and had poor safety awareness.
A Nursing Progress Note, dated July 1, 2016, indicated that the resident “fell out of her bed and sustained a skin tear to her left arm and a bruise to her forehead. The fall investigation report [dated three days later] indicated the staff continued to keep [the resident’s] bed in the lowest position and continued their frequent monitoring of [the resident].” However, “there were no new interventions added to the resident’s Care Plan.”
A Progress Note dated four days later indicated that the resident again “fell out of her bed. No injury was sustained. The Fall Investigation Report [dated the next day] stated the resident was unable to retain safety information. The staff was [reminded to keep] the bed in the lowest position.” Again, there were no new interventions added to the resident’s Care Plan.
By July 16, 2016, the resident again fell out of bed and did not sustain injuries. The report indicated that the staff was to use preventative measures, including using a winged mattress and keeping the bed in the lowest position.
On August 25, 2016, the resident “fell out of her chair” and did not sustain injuries. At the time, the resident “was not wearing her non-slip socks. The staff was indicated to be educated on the use of non-slip socks.” No new interventions were added except to remove the chair from the resident’s room.
