- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date March 16, 2017
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to call for additional assistance, provide interventions for a resident with combativeness during care, and prevent an injury while providing care when [the resident] was agitated, moving about in bed, and struck her head on the side portion of the metal side rail.”
The resident “was sent to the hospital after a change in condition was noted.” A Nursing Note dated March 10, 2017, at 1:45 PM revealed that the resident “had hit her head over the bed rail. She has a knot [that is] a red and blue bruise. The note revealed her nose started bleeding .” The nursing staff “sent the resident to the hospital for an evaluation.”
The Incident/Accident Report from the same day noted that a Nursing Assistant had rolled the resident to change her incontinence brief, when “she hit her head over the bed rail. There was a large knot over the left eye, bruising and nose bleeding.” The nursing staff performed neurological checks.
In a separate summary statement of deficiencies, dated April 29, 2017, the “facility failed to provide adequate supervision, when providing activities of daily living care, to an agitated and combative resident.” The result of the deficient practice involved “a fall with a contusion and laceration to the head.” The investigation involved a resident with “short-term and long-term memory loss, with moderately impaired decision-making skills.”
A Nursing Assistant stated that the resident became combative during activities of daily living care and “slid out of bed onto the floor mat, hitting the back of her head at the base of an empty intravenous pole.”
