- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date July 19, 2018
According to state investigators, “the facility failed to ensure [one resident] was free from neglect during a transfer without a mechanical lift which resulted in actual harm.” The resident “sustained right knee pain and was transferred to the Orthopedic Urgent Care Center” for diagnosis and treatment.
The state survey team reviewed the resident’s Clinical Record that showed medical conditions including bones that can “become brittle and fragile” because of “degeneration of joint cartilage and the underlying bone, causing pain and stiffness, especially in the hip, knee, and thumb joints.” The resident also suffered from “lower back pain, muscle weakness, and a lack of coordination.”
Documentation at the nursing home revealed that a “Nurse Practitioner “contacted regarding a complaint of right knee pain” and other medical conditions.” The Nurse Practitioner treated the resident’s pain with Tylenol 1000 mg every eight hours for forty-eight hours and ordered a rush x-ray to rule out a fracture or dislocation of the right knee.
However, an x-ray examination included evaluation for “acute lateral tibial plateau fracture (right knee fracture).” The resident “was sent out to Orthopedic Urgent Care Center and to evaluate [their] right knee.” The resident returned to the facility wearing a hinged right knee brace and had a follow-up appointment at the Orthopedic Center a week later.
The report indicated that the resident suffered from a closed fracture at the upper end of the tibia (right knee fracture).” The nursing staff was to ensure the resident remained non-weight-bearing on the broken knee.
The resident stated to the Nurse Practitioner during an examination that while being transferred by two nursing staff using a Hoyer lift, they experienced pain with noticeable swelling. The resident was never able to determine what happened to the knee but “did mention that it may have happened when she stood to transfer, some time during the daytime.”
