- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date January 7, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to provide adequate supervision and developed resident-centered Care Plans to prevent falls for [one resident].” This resident “had thirteen documented falls, all occurring in her room, during the seven-month period from January 23, 2018, through August 11, 2018. These failures caused [the resident] to sustain lacerations, bruising, swelling, and other conditions after falling on August 11, 2018.”
The deficient practice causing the fall led to the resident undergoing “emergency brain surgery.” The resident “was placed on a ventilator (an appliance for artificial respirations) and a feeding tube, hospitalized in the intensive care unit, and experienced a severely diminished quality of life due to the injuries caused by the fall.”
A complainant stated that the resident “suffered multiple falls at the facility due to a lack of supervision.” The complainant said that “the facility was aware of her fall history, yet there was no supervision when she fell.” The resident “had been taken to an Acute Care Hospital following the fall on August 11, 2018, [and] required immediate brain surgery.”
The complainant had said that the resident “could no longer walk or communicate and requires a feeding tube [saying that the resident] had been admitted to the facility to be supervised to prevent her from falling.” The complainant said that the resident “had been able to walk and communicate before the fall and had enjoyed outings with her family [saying that the resident’s] main reason for her stay at the facility was her need for supervision.”
A facility document titled: Incidents by Incident Type dated December 5, 2018, revealed that “the resident had fallen thirteen times between January 23, 2018, and August 11, 2018.”
On August 11, 2018, at 4:30 PM, the resident “was found on the floor in her room. The resident was noted to be lethargic (drowsy).” The nursing staff called 911 and sent the resident out to the hospital. The resident is “currently in the hospital for post-fall evaluation.”
A Licensed Staff Member stated that the facility moved the resident “a lot into different rooms within the facility because she kept falling.” Another Unlicensed Staff member noted that the staff would remind the resident “to ask for help, but [the resident] would not remember.”
