- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date August 23, 2018
The state investigators determined that a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) neglected to transfer a resident “with a Hoyer lift and the assistance of another staff member on May 17, 2018. During the 3:00 PM to 11:00 PM shift on May 17, 2018, [the CNA failed to follow the resident’s] Plan of Care when she transferred the resident by herself by picking the resident up and pivoting the resident to bed.”
It was determined that “no Hoyer lift was used, and no assistance was provided by another staff member. During the transfer, the resident’s right knee was twisted, and the resident began to complain of pain. One day later, on May 18, 2018, [the resident’s] right leg between the knee and ankle was noted to be red, warm, swollen, and painful.”
The nursing staff transferred the resident “to the local hospital for further evaluation. An x-ray showed a comminuted mildly displaced proximal tibial fracture as well as a proximal fibular fracture. This deficient practice affected [the resident] reviewed for neglect.”
The investigation involved a moderately cognitively impaired resident who “requires extensive assistance of two plus persons for transfers.” The resident’s Care Plan titled Potential for Falls noted a problem that requires “two-person assist for transfers per a Hoyer lift.”
A Departmental Note documented that at 11:27 PM on May 18, 2018, the resident “complained of leg pain on last rounds tonight about 10:45 PM.” The nursing staff called the Medical Doctor, who ordered the resident be transferred to the local hospital.
The Summary of the Investigation indicated that the resident “was out of bed due to a dental appointment to which the facility transported him/her.” By 4:04 PM that day, “the resident used their call system that was responded to by a CNA. The CNA was in the room for approximately four minutes.” The CNA returned and “entered the room without assistive lifts and left at 4:38 PM with soiled linens.”
The CNAs were guided to “use a Hoyer lift and assistance of two. Later in the evening, a Nursing Assistant went in to assist the resident and reported that they had “moved him/her from the wheelchair to the bed earlier in the evening, twisted his/her leg, and it was now hurting.”
At the hospital, the emergency room “called the facility with a report of a fracture.”
