- Failure to Provide Appropriate Treatment and Cares According to Orders, Resident’s Preferences and Goals – citation #F684 date February 2, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to reposition [the resident], per the Care Plan, every two hours for [one resident] observed for repositioning.” The investigators observed the resident “positioned on her back while in bed” at 10:52 AM on January 31, 2018. The resident “was also noted with left-sided weakness and a contracture of her left hand.”
Subsequently, at 12:56 PM the same day, “the surveyor made another observation” that the resident was “in the same position, on her back, and [that the resident] had not been repositioned.” By 2:57 PM that day, another observation was made again of the resident “lying on her back without being repositioned.”
By 4:58 PM, the cognitively impaired resident was “still lying on her back in the bed in the same position.” The resident “was not repositioned.” A review of the resident’s Care Plan indicated that the resident “had a wound to her coccyx (tailbone), needed assistance to be turned and repositioned every two hours and as needed.”
The resident’s records indicated that the patient was “totally dependent on staff for activities of daily living, including transfers and bed mobility.” The resident also had Physician’s orders to be repositioned every two hours.
The investigators interviewed the Assistant Director of Nursing, who stated that “[the resident] needed to be repositioned every two hours to relieve pressure to the wound and to prevent further complications to her tailbone area. [The Assistant Director] further added [the assigned Nursing Assistant] knew to reposition [the resident] every two hours.”
The survey team reviewed the facility’s policy and procedure manual for contracture prevention that had been revised in August 2017. The policy reads in part: “Residents who are unable to move themselves should be repositioned frequently, at least every two hours, when in bed.”
