- Failure to Develop, Write and Use Policies and Forbid Mistreatment, Neglect or Abuse of Residents – citation #F224 date January 17, 2017
According to state investigators, “the facility failed to ensure that the residents were protected from neglect resulting in harm [from] failing to ensure that safety equipment was turned on and functioning properly.” The deficient practice by the nursing staff “resulted in a past non-compliance harm situation because actual harm occurred to one resident who sustained a fractured pelvis when the resident fell.”
A review of the resident’s Care Plan indicated that the resident had “dementia with confusion, poor communication/comprehensive, physical restraint use, psychoactive drug use, vision problems, wandering, incontinence, history of falls, and arthritis.” The resident had an alarm seatbelt in their wheelchair “to promote safety.”
However, documentation shows that the resident “was to have a self-releasing, alarming seat belt to the wheelchair to promote safety – frequent checks.” However, a review of a Nurse’s Note revealed that in Registered Nurse (RN) “was called to the 500 Hallway for the resident on the floor. The note states that the resident was lying on [their] left side.”
At that time, “the resident was unable to state what happened” due to their condition. However, “the alarm was not sounding. The resident was checked for injuries in none were noted. A Hoyer lift (a medical device used to move the residents who are unable to move themselves) was used to assist the resident to the wheelchair.”
An x-ray was ordered by the Physician that “identified a pelvic fracture (a disruption of the bony structure of the pelvis).” The Physician ordered that the resident be transferred “to the hospital for surgical evaluation.”
The Nurse Aide involved in the incident completed a written statement that revealed: “that she had given [the resident] a shower and after the shower recalled reattaching the belt, but forgot to push the ‘On’ button.” The Nurse Aide stated that they had replaced the resident’s hipsters after the shower, but only one hipster pad in the hipsters and [the Aide] did not ask another nurse for another pad.
The Director of Nursing confirmed that the facility expects that all “alarms and safety equipment should be in place and functioning as ordered.”
