- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date October 4, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure an environment free of accident hazards for [four residents] observed for accidents.” In one case, the resident “had a fall in the facility and did not have her Care Plan interventions in place.” It was determined that the facility also failed to ensure that three other residents “had an environment free of sharp, hazardous objects.”
One resident was observed “lying in bed with her bare feet hanging off the side of the mattress. There were two pillows under the sheet. However, they were not supporting the resident or keeping her from turning over in the bed.” There “were also no floor mats on the floor at the bedside, and she had a regular flat mattress on her bed.”
The survey team interviewed a Registered Nurse (RN) regarding the position of the resident in bed while she was “on her back with her bare feet hanging over the side.” The Registered Nurse stated that “the resident could not move around in the bed on her own, especially when she was having an alert and aware day.” The Registered Nurse was asked “whether the resident had any recent falls and she stated, ‘Yes, just the other day.’”
The survey team asked the Registered Nurse “what fall precautions were in place?” The Registered Nurse “looked in the computer and stated that she had a conforming mattress, the bed was in the low position, they were to keep the call bell within reach, and keep her by the nurse’s station while she was away.” The surveyors informed the Registered Nurse “that the resident did not have a conforming/scoop mattress on her bed.”
The survey team reviewed the resident’s Falls Care Plan that revealed “she had an intervention for fall mats” that were not in her room at her bedside at the time the surveyors observed the resident in bed.
