- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date September 4, 2018
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to ensure there was a clear process in place to ensure that [a resident] received appropriate assistance with bed mobility and transfers [to] prevent accidents.” The investigation involved a resident who had been admitted to the facility for rehabilitation after hospitalization.
The investigators reviewed the resident’s Care Plan that revealed that “the facility failed to implement interventions related to assistance the resident requires with bed mobility.” Documents show that on May 10, 2018, “the facility implement interventions related to assistance the resident needed with transfers, which was to use a gait belt to facilitate safe transfers. However, the facility failed to identify the number of staff [members] needed to assist the resident with transfers.”
A review of the Physical Therapy Discharge Summary documented on June 12, 2018, revealed that three days earlier, “the resident requires moderate assistance with bed mobility with 50% verbal.” However, three days later, “the resident was totally dependent for bed mobility with 100% verbal cueing. At the time of discharge from physical therapy, the physical therapist documented that for bed mobility, the resident was totally dependent without attempts to initiate.”
The Director of Nursing stated during an interview that “therapy staff communicates recommendations to the nursing staff of the level of assistance a resident requires with bed mobility.”
A medical record review and Progress Note stated that during the morning hours with the staff, the resident “rolled out of bed and landed on the floor.” The resident was “observed with the left eye hematoma with a small laceration. The Physician was notified and gave orders to send the resident to the hospital for a CT scan [that revealed injuries].”
A Registered Nurse (RN) Charge Nurse explained that the Geriatric Nursing Assistant stated they required help to get the resident off the floor saying that they had been “turning the resident and the resident rolled out of bed.”
