- Failure to Respond Properly to All Alleged Violations – citation #F610 date November 7, 2018
- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date August 6, 2018
According to state investigators, “the facility failed to complete a thorough investigation of incidents to rule out that neglect or abuse were involved.” The state survey team reviewed a resident’s Quarterly MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment that indicated “the resident was sometimes understood, could sometimes understand others, was confused and requires maximum assistance from staffed for her care.”
A review of a Nursing Note revealed that “the resident complained of pain in her hip and thigh, x-ray results [identified] a femoral neck (broken hip).” There was “no documented evidence that a thorough investigation was completed to rule out abuse or neglect as a causative factor.”
This failure was confirmed by both the Nursing Home Administrator and Director of Nursing who revealed that “they could not provide documented evidence that an investigation into [the resident’s] fracture of unknown origin was [completed] to rule out abuse or neglect is a possible cause.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure that a safe environment was provided for [one resident].” A Nursing Note for the resident indicated “that the resident was observed on the floor with her feet on the wheelchair seat. The back of the wheelchair seat came apart from the frame.”
The resident’s “family member requested that the resident be sent to the emergency room.” An incident/accident report indicated that “one screw in the wheelchair frame had fabric around the screw that was frayed. The resident fell backward out of her chair, hit her head, and there was a lump on the back of her head.” The nursing staff applied ice and obtain a new wheelchair for the resident.
The resident’s roommate provided a witness statement indicating that “the back of the resident’s wheelchair broke loose the previous night” and that a Nurse Aide “attempted to fix it. The roommate heard [the Nurse Aide] say that she fixed what she could and that it would do for now.”
