- Failure to Immediately Notify the Resident, the Resident’s Doctor or Family Members of a Change in the Resident’s Condition Including a Decline in Their Health or Injury – January 19, 2016
According to state surveyors, the facility “failed to notify the Physician and the resident’s legal representative” involving a non-injury fall. The incident involved a resident with short term and long-term memory impairment with or decision-making.
A review of the resident’s 14-day MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment revealed that the resident “had one non-injury falls since admission.” Other documentation shows the resident “did not have any falls but requires extensive staff to assist with activities of daily living, received therapy, and had impaired standing balance.” The resident’s Care Plan identify the resident “at risk for falls due to [their medication use, and medical condition].”
A nursing note dated October 25, 2015, revealed that the resident “was alert and oriented during periods of confusion, restlessness, and was trying to get out of bed.” At 2:40 AM on October 26, 2015, the staff “found the resident on the floor, completed a neurological assessment, [finding] no injuries. However, the staff noted a bruise on the upper left extremity. The clinical record lacked evidence the facility notified the Physician after the unwitnessed fall with an injury to the upper left extremity.”
A nursing note dated November 4, 2015, at 1:30 AM revealed that the staff “found the resident sitting on the floor with no indication of injury and the staff notified the family of the fall. The clinical record lacked evidence the facility notified the Physician after the unwitnessed non-injury fall.”
The survey team interviewed the resident’s Durable Power of Attorney who revealed that the staff “did not notify [them] of the resident’s falls on October 25, 2015, and October 28, 2015.” The investigators then interviewed another family member who revealed that they were “unaware of at least two falls and stated the facility only notify the family of changes about half of the time.”
The survey team noted that the facility had failed to follow their policy titled: Assessing Falls and Their Causes from September 2014 that directs the staff to notify the resident’s Physician and family in an appropriate time frame.
