In some situations, nurses and nurse’s aides will assure the family that they follow established standards of care when, in fact, that does not happen.

- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date August 9, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure adequate supervision was provided to [one resident, who] fell from her wheelchair when left unattended. This [failure] resulted in the resident sustaining a clavicular fracture (broken collarbone) and minor subdural hematoma requiring admission to an acute care hospital.”
A review of the resident’s Progress Note dated June 28, 2016, revealed that the resident “was found on the floor on her knees by a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). The resident stated that she was trying to get up. No injuries were identified from this fall incident.”
A subsequent incident was documented on July 2, 2019, when the “resident was sitting in her wheelchair [and] refused to have a lap tray in place. The staff took the resident to activities, but the resident refused to stay. The staff then wheeled the resident to the front of the nurse’s station. The resident was witnessed to stand up unassisted, lose her balance, fall, and hit her head. The staff immediately called 911, and the resident was transferred to the Acute Care Hospital Emergency Department for evaluation.”
Other documentation concerning the event provided details that the resident “suddenly stood up, tried to walk forward, and tripped over her wheelchair.” The injured resident “tumbled forward and the majority of the resident’s weight landed on the resident’s head. The resident did not lose consciousness but was complaining of right head pain and was transported by paramedics to the Acute Care Hospital Emergency Department.”
The hospital admittance records revealed that the resident had suffered significant head trauma, “including a small frontal subdural hematoma (collection of blood outside the brain) and a right clavicle fracture.” The state surveyors asked the Director of Nursing “what should have been done to prevent the incident of the fall for [the resident]?” The Director responded, “frequent and close monitoring should have been implemented when [the resident] refused to have a lap tray.”
