- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date January 28, 2016

According to state investigators, “it was determined the facility failed to provide supervision to prevent falls and to consistently identify and implement interventions to aid in the prevention of falls.” The investigation involved two residents “who experienced falls. This facility identified ten residents who were at high risk for falls.”
The surveyors reviewed the Incident Report the documented the resident was lying on the right side of the fall mat on the floor and appeared “to roll out of bed in the low position.” There was “no apparent injury, no bruising or redness or swelling.” The resident was able to move all extremities.
The surveyors noted that the area on the form indicating “steps taken to prevent recurrence” was left blank. Additionally, “the Care Plan was not updated with any new fall interventions to prevent further falls.”
Two days later, a new Incident Report documented that the resident “was sitting in the Geri-chair at the table, then all of a sudden he was lying on his right side with no apparent injuries.” Again, on the form under “steps taken to prevent recurrence” was left blank.”
The January 18, 2016, Incident Report documented that three days after the last fall, the resident was found “lying on his right side beside the bed. The resident was on the fall mat. The assessment indicated no injuries.” The nursing staff assisted the resident back to bed and ensured that the bed was in the low position.
This document indicated under “Steps taken to prevent recurrence” as “maybe bring him closer to the nurse’s station.” There was “no documentation on any of the incident reports that showed that they had been reviewed/signed by the Director of Nursing or the Administrator.” When the surveyors saw the resident awake in his room in bed nine days after the last fall, “he was not located near the nursing station.”
When the survey team interviewed the Director of Nursing and Administrator and asked, “if there were any new interventions to prevent further falls for the resident,” both replied, ‘No.” Additionally, the Care Plan Coordinator verified that there was nothing documented concerning any new fall interventions that had been developed to prevent the resident from falling again.
The nursing home “failed to ensure residents were free from unnecessary drugs without adequate monitoring.” The investigation involved residents receiving antipsychotic, antianxiety and antidepressant medications.
In some incidents, the resident’s behavior Monitoring Flowsheet “did not consistently document the monitoring of side effects.” The investigators asked the Director of Nursing where the medication side effects were documented. The Director indicated that side effect documentation is kept on a computer program and the behavior books and if it is not in the books, “then it was not done.”
