- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date December 6, 2017
- Failure to Make Sure Services Provided by the Nursing Facility Meet Professional Standards of Quality – citation #F281 date October 13, 2016
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to provide adequate supervision and assistance to prevent accidents for [one resident] when a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) transferred [the resident] from a wheelchair to a bed using a mechanical lift without assistance from a second staff member, as required by facility policy. This failure placed [the resident] at risk for accidents such as falls during the operation of the mechanical lift.”
At 10:55 AM on December 5, 2017, a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) transferred the resident “from her wheelchair to her bed using a mechanical lift.” While performing the transfer without assistance, or in the presence of another CNA or nurse, the CNA “completed the transfer” and “was asked how she had been trained to perform a resident transfer using a mechanical lift.” The CNA replied that “she had been trained to use two staff to perform the transfers with another CNA.”
In a separate summary statement of deficiencies dated October 12, 2016, the facility “failed to ensure the safety of [one resident] when she was transferred from the wheelchair to the bed using a mechanical lift by one Certified Nursing Assistant. This failure resulted in [the resident] sliding to the ground and fracturing a bone in her upper leg.”
The resident was interviewed while “lying on her back in bed with her right leg immobilized from the base of her toes to her thigh.” The resident stated that the CNA “was transferring her from a wheelchair to her bed using a stand lift when ‘my left knee went out, so I tried to stabilize myself, and then my right knee when out.’”
An x-ray report indicated that the resident had “a fracture involving the distal femur (end of the thighbone near the knee).”
The facility “failed to meet professional standards when wound treatment was not administered as ordered by the Physician for [one resident]. This failure had the potential to delay wound healing and place the resident at risk for infection.”
The Director of Nursing confirmed “wound care should be documented each time it was done, and it was not documented” as required. This deficient practice was also a failure of the facility’s policy titled: Dressings – Sterile/Non-sterile that reads “document date, time, and procedure on the resident treatment sheet.”
