- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date May 11, 2017
The state surveyors determined that “the facility did not ensure that all alleged violations, (including injuries of unknown source), were thoroughly investigated for [one resident] reviewed during the rehab and certification and abbreviated survey. Specifically, the facility did not ensure the resident’s fracture of an unknown origin was thoroughly investigated.”
A review of the Nursing Note documented on June 5, 2016, it indicated that the resident “complained of increased lower left leg pain. The leg was noted to be slightly reddened. Upon assessment, the resident as yelling out in pain, the leg is tender to the touch, she stated she did not hit her leg anyway.”
The Medical Doctor was notified, and there “was no new order. The staff was directed to “continue to monitor and report any increased temperature.” The nursing staff was to follow up with the resident’s Primary Care Physician for an evaluation.” The nursing staff gave the resident a narcotic pain medication that was effective.
Later that day, the doctor gave orders to obtain an x-ray that revealed a “distal non-displaced tibial fracture and [also] an old tibial fracture.” The doctor was notified about the results of the x-ray and gave orders to monitor for redness, swelling, and pain. The staff was instructed to send the resident to the hospital if there were any changes “in her pain, swelling or redness.”
A review of the incident report documented on June 5, 2016, noted that “the source of the injury was not observed by any person; the patient complained of left lower extremity pain, Care Plan interventions were in place at the time, the resident had not fallen in the past thirty days, and the resident was not trying to walk without assistance.”
The facility Administrator stated that the doctor had said “it was a pathological fracture, so they did not look any further; there was no indication of the need to look further. She stated they involve the doctor, and her understanding was that he felt comfortable with the circumstance. The resident was very self-directed and could tell you what happened.”
