- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date August 23, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to follow correct loading procedures by not securing a resident’s wheelchair, while loading the resident into the transport van.” The deficient practice by the nursing staff “resulted in the wheelchair rolling backward off the lift, while the lift was in the raised position, resulting in a subdermal hematoma and multiple fractures.”
The investigation involved a cognitively intact resident who “had no behaviors [but] required extensive assistance for most of his activities of daily living.” The hospital History and Physical revealed that while the resident was being loaded into the wheelchair van in his wheelchair, “it rolled back, and he fell to the ground (approximately three feet in the air).”
The Director of Nursing stated that the resident “fell backward off of the van liftgate.” The staff responded immediately, assisting the resident “until the ambulance arrived to transport to a local hospital.”
The Clinic Nurse stated that “she was the first person with a rapid response team to arrive at the scene of the fall. The nurse stated [that the resident] was lying on his back, on a concrete walkway. She stated he was responding but not completely coherent.”
The Clinical Nurse said that there “was a moderate amount of blood on the back of the resident’s head, [adding that] it was enough blood that it required a dressing.” A second Clinical Nurse stated that the resident “could tell us about the pain but he could not tell us his name. He was in respiratory distress or any distress, but he was a bit diaphoretic (increased sweating).”
The workup at the hospital revealed that the resident had “a bilateral frontal subarachnoid hemorrhage, closed burst fracture [involving vertebrae] fractures [of] the right ribs seven, eight, ten, eleven and a left rib fracture of rib eight.” The resident remained hospitalized after treatment.
