- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect, and Mistreatment – citation #607 date February 24, 2018
According to state investigators, “the facility failed to ensure the residents were protected when a resident was transferred without the assist [of staff] or a mechanical (Hoyer) lift, as per Physician’s orders.” This failure by the nursing staff “placed residents in the facility in an Immediate Jeopardy situation.”
The survey team reviewed the resident’s Care Plan that identified the potential for injury related to the resident’s “psychoactive drug use, hearing problems/vision problems, incontinence, and a history of falls.” The resident was on anticoagulant medications and required a total lift meaning that the nursing staff must use a “Hoyer lift for all transfers.”
A review of the resident’s Electronic Report indicated that an Agency Nurse Aide worked at the facility transferred the resident “from the bed to her wheelchair without the assistance of other staff or mechanical lift as outlined in the resident’s Care Plan and Physician order.” As a result, the resident incurred “a laceration to her right leg and uncontrolled bleeding from the wound.”
The resident was “transferred to the hospital. At the hospital, [the resident] received nine sutures to close the wound.” The facility withdrew the Nurse Aide from the floor who was “restricted from resident contact until she had completed a witness statement.” The Nurse Aide was “then removed from the facility.”
A review of the facility investigation involving the incident revealed that the Nurse Aide transferred the resident in a chair after changing her brief. At that time, the resident “asked for a necklace.” The Nurse Aide gave the resident the box and proceeded out the door. After exiting the door, the Nurse Aide noticed that there was blood dripping from the resident to the floor.
The state surveyors noted that the facility was in an Immediate Jeopardy situation that requires immediate corrective action through a plan to educate the staff regarding the facility’s abuse policy and transfer procedures.
