  • Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date February 5, 2019
  • The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to follow its policy and a resident’s Plan of Care to ensure adequate supervision was provided for [one resident], who had a high risk for falls, had multiple falls with injuries without close supervision provided and new interventions put into place to further prevent falls and injury.”

    A review of the resident’s Admission Record indicated that the resident was conserved (protecting someone who cannot properly provide their own mental, personal needs).” The resident Fall Risk Evaluations from July 5, 2018, through September 7, 2018, “indicated the resident had a fall score greater than twenty. According to the fall risk assessment, a total score of ten or more represent a high risk.” The resident has an unsteady gait but able to stabilize with staff assistance for required supervision with ambulating in the facility.”

    The Resident’s Post-Fall Assessment documented at 8:00 PM on August 20, 2018, indicates that the resident was observed “walking in the hallway of the facility when suddenly [the resident] lost her balance and fell.” The staff interventions included educating the resident “on using the call light system for assistance and referred the resident to rehabilitation services for screening for balance status.”

    While the resident began ambulating independently on August 14, 2018, she “refused to use a wheelchair and was at risk for repeated falls.”

    The resident’s x-ray tests indicated “there was no acute fracture to the left shoulder.” The subsequent Post-Fall Assessment dated September 7, 2018, at 6:30 PM indicated that the resident “had an unsteady gait and mobility and was a high risk for falls and was walking toward the patio when [the resident] suddenly fell.”

    A Nurse’s Note dated 2:45 PM on October 20, 2018, indicated that the resident “was found on the floor in her room with left forehead swelling measured 2.0 x 3.0 cm. The note indicated [that the resident stated] she was walking to her bed, lost her balance, and fell to the floor.”

    On October 28, 2018, at 2:45 PM, the resident “was found on the floor next to her bed and sustained a 2.0 x 3.0 cm bump to the right side of her forehead.”

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa

After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
