- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date November 28, 2016
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure [one patient’s] feet were off the floor while wheeling him in a wheelchair without footrests. This deficient practice resulted in [the patient’s] right foot being caught on the floor, and subsequently, suffered a fracture of the distal femur (broken leg bone) on the right side.”
A review of the resident’s Progress Note written by a Registered Nurse (RN) indicated that the resident had completed therapy sessions and had gone to the gym, preferring “not to use her footrests while wheeled by a therapist.” The resident “caught her right foot on the floor while the wheelchair was still moving.” The resident fell and their “right knee was overextended, and she complains of severe pain.”
In a separate summary statement of deficiencies dated April 5, 2018, the facility “failed to provide supervision for one resident while getting out of bed. On May 8, 2017, [the resident], who required supervision during transfers or walking, fell and sustained a hip fracture that required surgery.”
A Progress Note documented on May 8, 2017, at 3:58 PM, signed by an RN, indicated a fall was witnessed by the treatment nurse. The treatment nurse had assisted the resident in sitting up at the bedside to remove the trousers. While the resident was sitting up in bed and attempting to get out of the bed, the resident’s left leg slid down while the resident was attempting to stand up. The resident landed on the floor wearing nonskid socks and was complaining of pain at a level of ten out of ten.
The resident was unable to move the right leg. The nursing staff notified the doctor and received orders to transfer the resident to a General Acute Care Hospital for evaluation and treatment. The resident was transferred to the hospital by emergency medical services. The emergency room results revealed a hip fracture and the need for surgical repair that occurred on May 10, 2017.
