- Failure to Ensure a Resident Receives an Accurate Assessment by a Qualified Health Professional – citation #F278 date September 2, 2015
- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date September 2, 2015
According to investigators, “the facility failed to ensure assessment information accurately reflected the resident’s clinical status.” The deficiency by the nursing staff “had the potential to affect all forty-nine residents who resided in the facility.”
The surveyors reviewed an Incident Report dated August 2, 2015, that shows a “Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) was transferring the resident, and the resident’s feet were slipping out from under her.” The CNA assisted the resident to the floor.
The Nurse’s Note dated the same day that the resident was being transferred and “was deadweight, and her shoes were slipping.” The CNA “then assisted the resident to the floor.” A review of the quarterly assessment dated August 11, 2015, documented that the resident “had no fall since admission/entry or re-entry or prior assessment.”
The state survey team interviewed the MDS (Minimum Data Set) Care Plan Coordinator and asked “if all falls should be documented on the MDS. He stated, ‘Yes.’” The investigators then asked the Coordinator “if staff lowering a resident to the floor was classified as a fall. He stated, ‘Yes.’”
The nursing facility “failed to implement interventions to aid in the prevention of falls.” The surveyors reviewed a Facility Incident Report dated May 22, 2015, that documents that the nursing staff found the resident “sitting on her buttocks bedside with no apparent injury.”
The document also shows to use a personal alarm and ensure “all fall precautions are in place. [However], there were no new interventions documented in the resident’s clinical record after this fall.”
A review of a Facility Incident Report dated May 31, 2015, revealed that a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) reported that the resident was “sitting on the floor in her room. The nurse observed the resident sitting flat on her bottom on the floor near the wheelchair. The resident was unable to recall what happened. Neuro-checks were completed along with a skin assessment. There were no new interventions documented in the resident’s clinical record after this fall.”
The facility incident report dated July 19, 2015, documented that a Certified Medication Aide was walking by the resident’s room and observed the resident “walking to the bed from the fridge” before losing her balance and leaning into the bedroom door, sliding down the door to the floor on her buttocks. While the resident experienced no injuries, “there was no new interventions documented in the resident’s clinical record.”
