- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date February 28, 2019
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to have two staff assist when providing care and repositioning a resident in bed to prevent the resident from falling from the bed and sustaining an injury.” Specifically, the resident “fell from bed during incontinent care and sustained a right distal femur fracture that required an immobilizer.”
A review of the resident’s Care Plan indicated that the resident “is dependent on [the nursing staff for] activities of daily living care [including] bathing, grooming, dressing, bed mobility, transfer, locomotion, and toileting) due to chronic disease status.” The interventions included that “the resident requires total dependence with two-person assistance with bed mobility, transfers, and toilet use.”
A Nursing Assessment indicated that the resident “was at moderate risk for falls.” The facility Summary Report documented on November 29, 2018, at 11:35 AM reads that the Nursing Aide “reported the resident fell out of bed. Upon entering the resident’s room, the resident was found on the floor on the left side of the bed with her head lying at the foot end of the bed.” Urine was “noted on the floor under the resident.”
The Resident’s Right Lower Leg Angled “out to the outside of her body.” The Nurse Aide reported that “she was changing the resident and had her turned on her left side” while the resident was holding onto the bed rail.” The Nurse Aide stated that “somehow she flipped out of the bed to the floor.”
At that time, the resident’s “right leg slid on some food that was on the floor.” The resident was asked in Spanish if she experienced pain in the head and neck, to which she replied “Yes” also shaking her head yes for leg pain.
The resident was sent out to the hospital through a 911 call. The nurse notified the family that the resident left the facility in a stretcher due to “improper positioning during activities of daily living care.”
