The state investigators determined the nursing home "neglected to identify a positive x-ray result for a mildly displaced [femoral neck fracture], which resulted in a three-day delay in the resident receiving treatment.” The resident “described his pain level as incapacitating, in his upper right thigh, to the physical therapist [and] experienced a decline in mobility due to the pain.”
The nursing staff transferred the resident to the hospital for “complaints of severe hip pain and was found to have [a fracture], which requires surgical repair.”
A Nursing Note written by a nurse stated that the resident was “found on the floor at 5:45 AM, in the sitting position, around the bathroom door. The resident had taken off his brief and was lying on his bed and was dry. The resident had voided on the floor while walking to the bathroom and consequently slid to the floor .”
The resident denied that he hit his head or sustained any injuries. “He was assisted to his wheelchair and transferred to his bed for patient care.” The nursing staff placed four mats around the bed.
The “facility failed to report an allegation of sexual abuse to the North Carolina Health Care personnel investigations, by a visitor to a resident, within the required twenty-four-hour timeframe.”
The facility presented a video to the investigators that showed a visitor pushing the resident “who was seated in her wheelchair, into the break room. As soon as a door was shut, “the visitor leaned over the resident and appeared to be kissing her.” The visitor’s “back was partially [in view of] the camera, but the head and right arm movement suggested kissing and fondling of [the resident].”
