- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date May 31, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure residents received adequate supervision and assistance devices to prevent a delay in treatment.” The investigation involved six residents requiring “assistance with activities of daily living.”
In one case, the state investigators interviewed a resident’s wife who “was sitting in the room by the bedside with the resident. She stated that [the resident] had a fall right before he was admitted to the facility.”
The resident’s wife stated that “the resident waited too long to [notify] the staff to assist him to the bathroom, so he attempted to get up and go to the bathroom by himself.” At that time, “he fell and hit his head on the sink cabinet located in the room.” The resident’s wife stated that “he hit his head so hard on the cabinet and broke the door on the cabinet, which had to be repaired. She stated [the resident] was confused and he tends to get anxious when she is not with them.”
The resident’s wife stated that “she had left the resident for about thirty minutes to go home and check on her home, and when she returned, he had fallen.” The following day, the resident “was observed lying in bed in his room. There were fall mats placed on both sides of the resident’s bed. There were one-quarter side rails up on both sides of the bed.”
The state investigators reviewed the resident’s clinical records that showed the resident “had an unwitnessed fall with their head hitting the wood cabinet below the sink in the room” on May 4, 2019. Two days earlier, the resident’s onset focus area in the resident’s Comprehensive Care Plan stated “the potential for falls related to injury/trauma, impaired physical balance, general weakness, the use of [medication], change in environment due to recent hospitalization and admission to the facility, poor safety awareness.”
The Care Plan on May 8, 2018, stated, “will minimize the potential for fall-related injury/trauma to the next review date of August 8, 2019.”
