- Failure to Respond Appropriately to All Alleged Violations – citation #F610 date December 27, 2018
The state investigators determined that for one resident, “the facility did not thoroughly investigate to rule out abuse, neglect or mistreatment.” The incident involved a cognitively intact resident who requires the “extensive assist of two [staff] for bed mobility, transfers, and toilet use, and had two falls with no injuries and one fall with injury since admission.”
A review of the resident’s Comprehensive Care Plan indicated that “the resident had a fall with injuries on July 6, 2018, with interventions including to ensure the call bell was within reach, anticipate needs, participate in activities to promote exercise, strengthening, and improve mobility, and Physical Therapy for strengthening and mobility.” The resident was to have floor mats and a low bed.
The Accident and Incident Report along with Progress Notes dated August 11, 2018, revealed that “the resident was found on the floor on her left side lying on the floor mat next to her bed. The outer aspect of her eye was bleeding. There was a gash to the corner of her left eye, skin tear to the middle finger, abrasion to the left side of the head, and scratch to the left thigh.”
The resident “also complained of head pain.” The resident was sent to the hospital for sutures and x-rays. The facility did not provide any interviews or summary as to what the root cause of the fall was or if the bed was in a low position.
During an interview with the Director of Nursing, it was discussed that “she could not locate an Accident/Incident Report for the resident’s fall on June 29, 2018, [a previous fall]. She said that the accident and incident report for August 11, 2018, did not include interviews with possible witnesses that were working at the time of the fall or document if the Comprehensive Care Plan interventions were in place.”
The Director said that all available documentation “only mentioned that the resident was found on the floor mat but did not include if the resident was in a low bed.”
