- 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, 2016
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to ensure the resident environment remained as free of accident hazards as possible and that [residents received] adequate supervision and assistive devices to prevent accidents.”
Specifically, one resident was documented as “yelling and cursing at residents and staff. The facility failed to implement measures to ensure [that harmed resident’s] care was individualized and effective, and her supervision was adequate to protect the remaining 20+ residents on the secure unit.”
All the affected residents on the secured unit were elderly and an average of eighty years of age. All were “memory and cognitively impaired” and some “wandered the unit without direction.”
The “facility’s failure to keep the resident safe created a situation of harm which resulted in [another resident] having a fractured hip, and he untimely died during surgery.” Another resident, “resided on the secure unit [and the] facility failed to implement interventions to keep a fourth resident safe. This failure created potential harm for [the fourth resident].”
The survey team reviewed a Progress Note that stated at 2:30 PM that day, the resident “was involved in a resident-to-resident altercation with [a ninety-five-year-old resident].” The aggressive resident pushed the ninety-five-year-old resident “against the restroom door causing [the ninety-five-year-old resident] to fall.” The aggressive resident “was redirected from the other resident at the incident site. Intervention used was a one on one caregiver for three days.”
The investigators interviewed the Director of Nursing, who stated that the injured resident had a confirmed hip fracture that required surgery. However, the resident died during surgery. Ultimately, the aggressive resident “was discharged from the facility.”
The investigators determined that the facility had failed to “assess and manage [the aggressive resident’s] behavior.” A review of the resident’s Progress Notes documented that the abusive resident “had aggressive behavior [that was] both physical and verbal.” This inappropriate and unacceptable behavior of the aggressive resident had been documented for some time.
