- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date May 30, 2017
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure resident safety when the staff did not implement adequate supervision and assistance for [two residents] who had poor safety awareness and a history of falls, which led to harm.” In one incident, the resident “was noted [by] the facility to be a flight risk. This failure contributed to [the resident falling five times in three months] from December 30, 2016, through March 25, 2017.”
The resident “sustained a fractured right hip from the fall on December 30, 2016, and a fractured left hip from the fall on March 25, 2017.” The other resident fell “while getting out of bed unassisted and developed severe sepsis (the body’s response to an infection that causes injury to its own tissues and organs) and a fractured pelvis.” A third resident “wandered outside the facility unsupervised.”
For the first resident, a review of their Clinical Health Status indicates a score of nineteen for a risk for falls where “a score of ten or greater represents a high fall risk.” The resident also had “short-term and long-term memory problems and needed assistance with decisions.” A Progress Note involving the resident’s first fall indicated that the resident’s daughter found the resident “on the floor near the entrance to the bathroom next to the wheelchair.”
A subsequent Progress Note indicates that the resident “had an unwitnessed fall [and] rolled out of bed while trying to reach for his night table.”
