- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date December 11, 2017
The state investigators determined that “the facility did not ensure that the resident’s environment remained free from accident hazards. Specifically, [for one resident] the facility did not ensure that staff was trained on securing the three-point retractable seatbelt when transporting residents in the facility van.”
The van “was transporting a resident not secured with a three-point retractable seatbelt, the van stopped abruptly, and the resident exited the wheelchair and landed on the floor approximately 90 inches from the wheelchair.” The resident “was transported to the hospital and pronounced dead on arrival.”
The survey team reviewed the Investigation Summary that stated that “at approximately 4:00 PM, the resident was being transported back from a doctor’s appointment. A car pulled out in front of the facility Van, and the Van driver stepped on the brakes. The van stopped abruptly, and the resident fell forward out of his chair.”
After being transported to the hospital, the resident was “pronounced deceased at 4:26 PM.” The County Sheriff’s Investigation documentation shows that the manner of death was “accidental, the immediate cause was several bilateral rib and sternal fractures due to [Blunt] force trauma. The sheriff documented that the coroner described the injuries to the resident caused a flail chest (a life-threatening medical condition that occurs when a segment of the rib cage breaks due to trauma and becomes detached from the rest of the chest wall), leading to the inability to breathe.”
The “facility did not have evidence that education regarding the safety of transporting residents was provided to transport staff.” The County Sheriff Investigator stated that “the three-point retractable seatbelt would have fit around the resident in the wheelchair” and he was able to demonstrate this.
