- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date January 16, 2018
The state investigators determined the nursing home “failed to adequately supervise [one resident] who fell five times in a sixty-day period from January 11, 2017, (the date of the first fall) through March 11, 2017.” The resident’s “second fall on February 6, 2017, resulted in an injury to [their] head. Following the fall with injury, [the resident] had three more unwitnessed falls.”
The investigators determined that “despite the increased rate of falls and the facility’s awareness of [the resident’s] decline in health and high risk of falls and potential injuries, the facility failed to adequately supervise [the resident].” The surveyors interviewed the complainant who stated that the resident “had been admitted to the facility for rehabilitation due to falls at home.” The resident “had fallen five to six times while in the facility [and the complainant said that the resident] had been admitted to the facility due to an increased need for supervision because of the history of falls.”
The complainant stated that “he had complained to the facility management about the lack of supervision at the facility, but nothing had changed.” The complainant said that “the management staff had informed him the facility was only getting reimbursed by the government to provide two to three hours of care, per resident, per day.”
The resident had suffered two falls, was hospitalized continuously, and “passed away.” While at the hospital, the resident had begged the complainant “not to let him return to the facility.” The complainant had stated, “he had not felt comfortable allowing [the resident] to return to the facility after the last fall due to the continued falls resulting from the lack of supervision.”
A review of a Nursing Note revealed that the staff had documented that the resident, before his death, “had a fall a month ago at home and needs frequent monitoring.”
