- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date April 4, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home " failed to thoroughly investigate and analyze a fall, to determine causative factors and implement appropriate interventions to reduce the risk of further falls for [one resident].” As a result, the resident “sustained ten falls in five months and two of these falls resulted in multiple staples to her head.”
The investigation involved a severely cognitively impaired resident who “requires extensive assistance of two or more staff for bed mobility, dressing, toileting and personal hygiene, and the extensive assistance of one for transfers.”
The resident’s Care Plan involved a focus area that included the resident’s risk for falls, characterized by a history of falls and injuries . The nursing staff was directed to keep the bed in the lowest position, encourage the resident to take rest periods when ambulating, attend rehabilitation therapy, wear appropriate non-slip footwear, get involved in the activities, toilet frequently, and encourage the resident to participate “in activities that promote exercise and physical activity, for strengthening and improving mobility.”
An Incident Report identified an unwitnessed fall that resulted in “a small bump on the left side of the forehead.” The resident “was found lying on her left side, in front of her wheelchair, on the floor in the hallway of the Memory Care Unit.”
