- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date March 8, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure a resident, dependent on transfers by a lift, was transferred by a lift which resulted in an assisted fall without injury .” The investigation involved a moderately cognitively impaired resident who “requires total assistance from two persons for transfers. The [medical records revealed that] the resident used a wheelchair but was dependent on staff for all efforts of mobility.”
The resident’s Nursing Notes dated between February 20, 2019, and February 28, 2019, revealed that the resident “transferred out of bed to the wheelchair using a mechanical lift daily seven times.” On the last day, the Nurse’s Note described the patient as “weak and [was] lowered to the floor during a transfer. The use of a mechanical lift was confirmed during the interview process.”
The resident stated during an interview that “while the staff was getting her up to the side of the bed, there was a blanket on the floor, and she just sat down.” The resident further said that “she thought [that] one person was helping her but was not sure.” The resident “denied any injury from the fall.”
In a separate summary statement of deficiencies, dated March 23, 2018, the nursing home “failed to provide supervision to prevent accidents, investigate each accident to determine causative factors, and implement interventions to prevent further accidents.” The investigation involved one resident “reviewed for accidents, which resulted in numerous and continued falls.”
The resident’s Care Plans indicated numerous interventions, including keeping the bed in a low position, installing fall mats at the bedside, maintaining a bed alarm, and ensuring that there was a “ non-slip mat to the wheelchair cushion [and] anti-rollback brakes on the wheelchair.” The nursing staff was to toilet the resident every two hours.
On January 1, 2018, the resident “was found on the floor beside her bed.” The following day, “the resident was found sitting on the floor beside her bed” with the bed alarm sounding. The nursing staff transported the resident to the emergency room for evaluation for “a hematoma to the left side of her head.”
On January 4, 2018, “the resident was found sitting on the floor outside of her room door.” On January 6, 2018, “the resident was found sitting on the mat beside her bed.” On January 7, 2018, “the resident was found at the entrance of the dining room, sitting on the floor.”
There were fourteen other occasions from that time until March 18, 2018, where the resident was found on the floor after falling.
