- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date January 14, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to prevent an incident of resident neglect when a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) failed to get a second staff member to assist with a mechanical lift transfer.” The deficient practice resulted in the resident “falling from the sling in the lift, sustaining to laceration to the back of his/her head and bruising to his/her left arm and left inner thigh.”
The resident “was transferred to the Hospital Emergency Department and required staples to a laceration on his/her head.” A review of the resident’s Care Plan indicated that the resident “was totally dependent on two staff for transfers and required the use of a mechanical lift for all transfers.”
The facility investigation report indicated that on December 1, 2018, at approximately 6:30 PM, “during a mechanical lift transfer, the resident fell from the sling on the floor, was bleeding from the back of his/her head and was transferred to the Hospital Emergency Department.”
The initial report indicated that two Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) were transferring the resident using a mechanical lift when the resident “fell from the sling.” Two days after the incident, one CNA “recanted her initial statement and said she was not involved in the mechanical lift transfer of [the resident].” The statement indicated that only one CNA had “performed the mechanical lift transfer by himself.”
The CNA involved in the transfer stated that while the resident “was up in the lift and he was moving him/her from the chair to the bed, the lift [shook], and the resident fell out of the sling on the floor.” The second CNA said that “she had not assisted with the mechanical lift transfer of [the resident] and said she had lied to the Director of Nursing and Unit Manager when she was interviewed on December 1, 2018.”
Eventually, the CNA “told the truth that she had not been in the room during the transfer” and had been “in another resident’s room across the hall when [the first CNA] came to her, said he had an accident, and asked her to say she was in the room during the transfer, or words to that effect.”
