- 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 1, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) had another staff member present when she used a mechanical (Hoyer) lift to transfer [the resident] from the wheelchair to the bed on May 6, 2017.”
The documentation shows that during the transfer, the resident “fell to the floor and sustained a fractured left elbow, a fractured left shoulder, and a broken arm.” A review of the resident’s Quarterly MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment and Brief Interview for Mental Status (BIMS) score of fifteen indicates that the cognitively intact resident was “totally dependent on staff for transfers.”
A report dated May 6, 2017, at 4:40 PM indicated that the resident “was transferred from the wheelchair to the bed and fell to the floor. A Certified Nursing Assistant stated that the lift pad came off the hook.” The resident “complained of extreme pain in the left arm.”
The nursing staff sent the resident to the hospital for evaluation and x-rays. The CNA told the Charge Nurse that “she was in the process of transferring the resident when the strap came loose from a Hoyer lift.” The Charge Nurse “was asked about what the concern of the staff member was transferring a resident with a Hoyer lift without a needed second person assisting.” The Charge Nurse answered, “the major concern was the patient could fall.”
The CNA “acknowledged she did not have another staff person assisting; she did it alone.” The CNA stated that “the Hoyer lift pad might not have been hooked completely and [the resident] fell to the floor.” The CNA stated that “she was in a hurry; she failed to make sure the Hoyer lift pad was hooked and failed to have someone spot her.”
The hospital medical record indicated that the resident had “symptoms of the upper extremity and acute left shoulder pain [and was diagnosed] as having a fractured left elbow, fractured left shoulder, and a broken arm.”
