- Failure to Ensure Services Provided by the Nursing Facility Met Professional Standards of Quality – citation #F658 date June 11, 2018
According to state investigators, the “facility did not provide services consistent with professional standards of quality. The issue involved a delayed response to a resident’s fall with major injury and complaints of pain.” According to the Resident Incident Report dated May 14, 2018, at 12:07 PM, “the resident fell on the floor in the dining room.”
A Registered Nurse (RN) found the resident “lying on her right side. The assessment revealed a small hematoma (bleeding under the skin) to her right forehead and a right elbow skin tear.” The resident “reported pain of her right leg with movement and stated that this is her baseline as this was the hip she had previously replaced.”
The RN concluded that there was right upper and lower extremity pain after the incident. The resident complained of pain. However, a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) stated that “approximately forty-five minutes after the resident fell, the resident complained of right hip pain.” However, the LPN said that the resident “was complaining of a lot of pain in the right hip,” but that one of the RNs at the facility also said that “the resident is overly dramatic when she falls and has a low pain tolerance.”
The LPN added that “the RNs did not seem overly concerned or directed the unit typist to order a hip x-ray for the resident.” The LPN added that the resident “said if she had to move her hip, she would scream.” The LPN said that “the resident normally does not complain, and this was unusual for her.”
X-rays were ordered, and treatment applied. Later that evening, the Portable Service Requisition at 8:19 PM revealed that “the resident was unable to move her leg or to completely [straighten or bend] her elbow at 90°.” The x-ray revealed serious injuries.
The following day, the Director of Nursing stated that “the resident’s comfort goal is established on admission, for a change in conditions, and if the resident is not in her established goal, the nurse is expected to consult with the Physician. The Director stated that “the RNs felt like they needed to see x-rays and they follow[ed] protocol with Tylenol.”
