- Failure to Keep Every Resident Free from Physical Restraints Unless Need for Medical Treatment – citation #F221 date February 15, 2017
- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date April 18, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to keep a resident free from physical restraints and did not identify [a] medical symptom that was being treated with the use of restraints.”
Surveyors also determined that “the facility failed to evaluate the need for a side rail for the bed that restricted the resident’s movements.” The resident’s “arm was trapped between the side rail and the mattress of the bed.”
The survey team determined that an Immediate Jeopardy situation began on February 8, 2018, “with the entrapment of the arm of [the resident] between the side rail and the mattress of the bed.” The investigation involved a resident with “no problem behaviors” who was “dependent on staff for transfers, required the assistance of two persons for ambulation, and was dependent on staff for locomotion in a wheelchair.”
A Resident Incident Report, completed by a nurse, revealed “that the resident was noted with the left arm between the side rail and the bed. The report noted the arm was removed from the area, and the only abnormality noted of the arm was red discoloration. The report did not provide a specific location of the area of red discoloration on the arm.”
The “facility failed to submit a twenty-four-hour and five-day report to the State Survey Agency for an injury of unknown origin.” A Nursing Note, dated April 6, 2019, documented that the resident’s responsible party “called the facility to request that [the resident] be sent out to the emergency room, due to complaints of left-sided pain.”
A review of the Hospital Radiology Report, from the same day that afternoon, revealed that there “was a non-displaced fracture involving the left distal #9 rib.” However, there was “ no documentation to indicate that the State Agency had been notified,” as required by law.
