- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date June 20, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure safety devices were in place and functioning properly for [one resident].” The nursing home also “failed to provide adequate supervision to prevent falls for [another resident] and failed to ensure implementation of fall interventions based on a facility investigation of causes of falls for [five residents].”
In one case, a resident “sustained a fractured wrist and had a laceration requiring sutures and [another resident] sustained a fractured hip.” The “facility’s failure to implement interventions to prevent falls placed [both residents] in Immediate Jeopardy.”
In one incident, the investigators reviewed a resident’s Medical Records and Post Falls Nursing Assessment that revealed that the resident was “found in her room on the floor next to her bed on the right side with her feet facing the bed and her head toward the door. [The patient] had a laceration on her head above her left eye near her eyebrow. Safety devices were in use and an alarm was present,” and the patient was wearing footwear/non-skid socks.” The nursing staff was required to clear walking pathways.
The medical record review indicated that the resident had been given pain medication (tramadol) to prevent pain, and their arm was placed in a splint. Observations were made of the resident in her room while “seated in her wheelchair with Steri-strips on her left forehead and a hard cast on her left arm.” There was a Pressure Pad Alarm in place, and the indicator light was flashing.
The Occupational Therapist was interviewed in the therapy room and revealed that they do not turn off the alarms anymore. The therapist said, “I used to, but I would sometimes forget to turn them back on, so I just reset them now.”
A Registered Nurse (RN) revealed that the resident’s daughter “normally stays with her, and she left after the therapist took [the resident] to the therapy room.” On that day, a CNA called out the Registered Nurse’s name when he found the resident “lying on the floor in a prone position with a gash to her left brow.” The wheelchair alarm was not sounding.
