- 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 28, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure safety devices were in place and functioning for [three residents] reviewed for falls. This failure resulted in harm to [one resident] who sustained a fall with a femur fracture.”
A review of the Fall Investigation revealed that the resident “was found on her right side beside the bed.” The resident “had a seat belt which was found beside the chair, broken in half.” The resident “had a contusion to her head and complained of right-side pain.”
The resident was transferred to the hospital for x-rays that showed that “she had suffered a comminuted intertrochanteric femoral fracture of the right side (unstable hip fracture).” The resident was “sent out to the hospital” and admitted to the facility and eventually placed on hospice and expired.
The state investigative team interviewed the Director of Nursing, who indicated that the resident had fallen, “complained of leg pain and hit her head in the fall.” The interview revealed that “no one was sure whether she was trying to go to bed or the bathroom.”
The Director of Nursing revealed that “a zip tie must have come loose from where it was tied to the post of the wheelchair.” The Director stated that “it is the responsibility of the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) caring for [the resident] to check the seat belt and connections before using the wheelchair for [the resident].”
The Director of Nursing confirmed that “this check was probably not completed if the zip tie broke.” This investigation involved document review, medical records review, and facility policy reviews along with interviews of all persons involved.
