- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation date March 29, 2018
According to state surveyors, “the facility failed to ensure a resident was supervised to prevent falls.” The Director of Nursing “documented that seventeen residents experienced falls in the last four months.”
One incident involved a severely, cognitively impaired resident whose Admission Assessment dated July 26, 2017, and Quarterly Assessment dated October 26, 2017, documented that the resident “had no falls.” However, the Nurse’s Note dated December 6, 2017, noted that the resident was observed “lying on his right side on the floor next to the couch of the common area. The note documented the resident had no injuries.”
The Incident Report on the same date documented that “the resident had been asleep on the couch and had rolled off onto the floor. The report documented there was an in-service attached to the Incident Report which documented the staff should assess the resident for incontinence and toilet as needed.” The document states that the staff “should assess the resident for hunger, signs, and symptoms of pain, and should encourage the resident to sleep in a bed.”
However, ten days later, on December 16, 2017, a Nurse’s Note documented the resident “was lying on his left side on the floor in front of the recliner which was still reclined. The note documented the resident had no injuries.” The Incident Report on that day documents that “the resident would wear non-skid socks when ambulating.”
Seven days later, on December 23, 2017, a new Incident Report documented that “the resident was on the floor next to the dining table on his knees. The Incident Report documented the resident was trying to sit down and missed the chair. The report documented interventions were to remind the resident to ask for help [and that the staff] were in-serviced to be more aware of what the resident was doing.”
The Nurse’s Note dated December 29, 2017, notes that the resident “was found on the floor in his room with his knees against the bed and his head lying on the footrest of the recliner. The note documented the resident had no injuries.” A Nurse’s Note dated January 1, 2018, documents that the resident “fell on the floor trying to sit down for breakfast in the dining room.” There “was no incident reports for this fall and no new interventions were implemented.”
