- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date March 6, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure that one resident environment remained as free of accident hazards as is possible.” The investigation also involved a failure to provide adequate supervision and assistive devices to a second resident to prevent accidents.
In one case, a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) attempted to transfer the resident into their wheelchair from the bed. The CNA did not use a gait belt around the resident’s waist. At the time of the incident, the CNA noticed one of the wheelchair brakes was missing but still attempted to transfer the resident using a stand to pivot maneuver.
During the event, the CNA lost her grip and set the resident down on the floor carefully. After ensuring that the resident was not severely injured, the CNA left the room to seek help. However, with two Certified Nursing Aides, they were still “unable to lift [the resident]” without a gait belt.
The Director of Nursing stated that the CNAs are required to use the gait belt when transferring residents from the chair to the bed and from the bed to the chair. The Director indicated that “she was educating the staff today on transfers and how to use a gait belt and would be providing a copy of the education to the survey team.”
In a separate summary statement of deficiencies dated August 30, 2018, the facility “failed to ensure the safety of [two residents] who were at risk for falls, and failed to ensure the safety of [another resident] found to have a pair of scissors in her room.”
The investigative team was in the facility conducting a survey when a resident in her room “walked very fast out into the hallway” and grabbed a surveyor’s arm. The resident was “unable to speak or answer questions.”
A Certified Nursing Assistant working down the hallway walked up to assist the resident back into the wheelchair. However, at that time, “the wheelchair moved back two to three inches and [the resident] back into it.”
The state surveyors asked the CNA “whether the wheels on the wheelchair should be locked. She answered, ‘Yes,’ and was observed locking the wheels. The alarm on the back of the wheelchair was not sounding during this observation.”
