- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date October 5, 2017
According to investigators, “the facility failed to implement Physician ordered interventions to prevent falls for [one resident] reviewed for falls.” The surveyors reviewed the resident’s medical records that revealed: “the resident last had a fall on July 17, 2017, was no documented injuries.” Three months later, on October 5, 2017, the resident was observed “lying in bed with the door open.” The resident’s “bed did not appear to be in the lowest position, and no padding of any kind was on the floor around the bed.”
The investigators interviewed a State-Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA) who stated that the resident “was not lowered in their no bean bags or pads by his bed.” The STNA stated, “she checked with the nurse and found out that [the resident] did have an order” for those items to minimize the potential of injury from a fall.
The STNA also confirmed that “she was mistaken and that [the resident] should have bean bags by his bed while in bed.” The Director of Nursing verified that the resident’s “Kardex did not reflect the order to place bean bags next to the resident’s bed. The Director also verified that all residents bed should be kept lowered while the residents are in bed and stated she would not need to be on the Kardex report for the aides.” This deficiency substantiates “complaint number OH 675.”
In a separate summary statement dated August 11, 2017, the surveyors documented that the nursing home “failed to ensure [a resident] was provided with adequate supervision resulting in an avoidable fall. This [failure] resulted in actual harm when [the resident] experienced an avoidable fall and suffered a nasal fracture.”
A review of the resident’s Fall Risk Care Plan revealed a “personal history of falls and is at high risk for future falls related to activity intolerance, impaired respiratory/cardiac status, the use of high-risk medications, dementia, and occasional incontinence.” A review of the Hospital Emergency Room Instruction stated August 8, 2017, revealed the resident “was treated and released back to the nursing facility.” The resident “was treated for a closed nasal fracture, [nosebleed], chronic anticoagulation, fall, and facial bruising.”
While the resident’s Acute Care Plan dated August 8, 2017, revealed that the resident “had a nasal fracture [their work] no other specific details available were located in the chart review specifically related to the [resident’s] fall on August 7, 2017.”
