- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date March 7, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure that adequate supervision was provided to [one resident] during care, resulting in a fall with a fracture.” The investigation involved a severely cognitively impaired resident who “was assessed to require the assistance of two or more with bed mobility.”
The resident’s Care Plan indicated that the resident “had a self-care deficit, as evidenced by maximum assist for most activities of daily living related to muscle weakness and additional risks related to an orthostatic medical condition.” The staff needed to wash, dress, set up, cue and assist the resident for activities of daily living.
A Medicare Note indicated that while changing the resident in bed, the patient “fell out of bed and onto the floor. The patient was still in pain at the time of transfer but was alert again, unable to answer some questions appropriately, but still had a noticeable change in mentation.”
A Registered Nurse (RN) wrote a statement documenting that the supervisor “was notified that the resident was involved in a fall. The Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) reported that he was cleaning the patient in bed without the assistance of another CNA.” The statement indicates that the CNA “had the resident roll on his side with the resident’s body facing toward him. The CNA reported that the resident began to roll onto his body and off the bed and that he attempted to break the patient’s fall with his body, but the resident ultimately fell to the ground.”
The CNA “was asked how hard the resident had hit the floor and the CNA responded, ‘with some force.’” The CNA responded no one “asked if the resident hit his head.” The “floor nurse reported that he entered the room to find the resident on the floor face down.”
When asked, the resident stated that “he had a headache which he rated as a 7/10, with ten being the worst pain he ever felt.”
