- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation date #F600 September 4, 2018
According to investigators, “the facility failed to ensure that one of three residents reviewed was free from neglect during the provision of Activities of Daily Living Care.” The deficient practice resulted in the resident sustaining a fractured humerus.
The survey team reviewed the resident’s Comprehensive Plan of Care that had activities of daily living listed as “self-care performance deficit related to dementia [with] contractures with interventions including encouraging the resident to participate in care.” A subsequent Plan of Care indicated that the resident “had the potential to demonstrate verbally abusive behaviors.”
The staff was encouraged to intervene “when the resident becomes agitated.” The staff should “intervene before agitation escalates, guide away from the source of distress, engage only in conversation if responses aggressive, staff to walk calmly away and approach later.”
A review of a Nursing Note revealed “when doing care of bathing and dressing” when the left arm was moved, the staff member “heard a pop.” The resident began complaining of pain. Upon assessment, there was a noticeable discomfort “in the left elbow and the left shoulder. New order for x-rays on the shoulder and left elbow were provided.
The x-ray report confirmed osteopenia and angulation. The x-ray showed positive for a humeral neck fracture with osteopenia (bones weaker than normal).” The resident was sent to the emergency room for stabilization. After treatment, the resident returned to the facility with their arm in a sling.
The nursing staff and administration reported the incident to the State agency. Documentation included a witness statement from the employee saying, “as we were washing [the resident, the resident] began to fight and resist.” One employee “put her arm under [the resident’s] contracted arm and pushed it back towards [the resident’s] head.” The other staff member “then heard a ‘pop’ and that is when [the resident’s] started screaming in pain.”
The surveyors determined that “the facility failed to ensure [the resident] was free from neglect during the provision of activities of daily living care with a contracture of the left arm, which resulted in [the resident being] transferred to the hospital.”
