- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date March 5, 2018
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to ensure that adequate supervision and effective use of the facility’s monitoring program to prevent falls and injuries were provided for [one resident]. Specifically, monitoring checks and toileting assistants were not provided as care plan indicates and is recommended by the facility’s investigations to prevent further falls.”
As a result, the resident had eight falls in eight months, and the “facility did not implement recommended Care Plan changes for the supervision of the resident. Subsequently, on February 18, 2018, [the resident] fell and sustained a subdermal hematoma (STH; referring to a collection of blood between the skull and the outermost covering of the brain and usually associated with head trauma) following a fall. This [failure] resulted in actual harm that is not an Immediate Jeopardy.”
The moderately, cognitively impaired resident “used a wheelchair and did not walk in his room or the corridor during the assessment period. The MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment further indicated the resident did not have any falls during this assessment period.”
The investigative team reviewed the Occurrence Reports, Fall Interview Forms and Nurse’s Notes that documented “the resident experienced eight falls” for these falls “resulted in injuries.” On one occasion documented on August 9, 2017, the resident “was found lying on the floor on the right side of his bed.” The resident “sustained a skin tear to the left forearm, scratch to the lower left inner shin and was complaining of right-side mid-back pain.”
The fourth fall documented in the Occurrence Report noted that the resident was “observed lying on the floor in his room on his left side, his head next to the wall in between the dresser and the end of the bed.” The resident had a contusion that measured 3.0 cm x 2.0 cm on the left temple and “complained of the pain on the left shoulder.”
