- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date October 11, 2018
- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date August 18, 2017
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to provide supervision to a severely cognitively impaired resident who displayed wandering behaviors .” The nursing staff knew that the resident requires “supervision while outside. However, the resident was found outside the facility unsupervised.”
The state investigators initiated an Immediate Jeopardy situation when the resident “was left outside the facility, unsupervised by staff, and developed blisters to her right forearm. The resident was brought back inside by a concerned visitor.” This incident occurred on September 26, 2018.
However, on October 2, 2018, the severely cognitively impaired resident was “left outside of the facility, without supervision, in her wheelchair in the facility parking lot where she sustained a fall without injury. The resident was assessed and retrieved by [a Hospice Nurse] and returned to the facility with no physical injuries.”
The “facility failed to use designated pad size [slings] and use two people when transferring a resident, using a full mechanical lift.” The deficient action by the nursing staff resulted “in a subarachnoid hemorrhage (bleeding in the area between the brain and the thin tissues that cover the brain).”
The investigators reviewed the resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment and Kardex. The documentations show that the “resident was not coded for falls, and walking did not occur during the lookback period.”
A Nursing Note revealed that a nurse had entered the resident’s room at about 11:40 AM because the resident had fallen. At that time, the resident “was lying on the floor next to the bed, lying on her left side.” A Nursing Assistant stated that “the resident fell on her back, with her head being bumped .” The nursing staff observed the back of the head, and “no bleeding was noted.”
The Nursing Assistant said that the resident had fallen from the bed to the wheelchair when being transferred. The medical team transferred the resident to the hospital for an evaluation.
