- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date July 6, 2018

The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to provide the low bed with landing mats as planned by the interdisciplinary team (IDT) meeting for [one resident. The resident] had an actual fall incident at the facility and sustained a laceration (skin cut) to the right forehead. The facility failed to implement the IDT recommendation. The deficient practice had the potential to cause injury to the resident when falling.”
As a result, the investigators made an unannounced visit “to the facility to investigate an entity-reported incident regarding quality of care.” During the investigation, the surveyors toured the facility and observed the resident “sitting on his bed, eating lunch. with a small laceration on his right forehead from a previous fall. The bed was at regular height, not low and close to the floor, and no floor mats were observed on the floor beside the bed.”
The “facility staff failed to ensure [one resident received medical treatment] as ordered by the physician.” The resident had a scheduled dialysis medical treatment where excessive fluids and waste products are removed from the blood using a dialyzer and machine. The nursing staff failed to provide dialysis on “three separate occasions due to a failure by the facility staff to provide a sling for a Hoyer lift, [which was] needed and required for transferring the resident from his wheelchair to his treatment chair.”
The facility also failed to “ensure there was a written contract between the facility and [the medical treatment unit] for the services to be provided. These deficient practices resulted in [the resident] not receiving [medical treatment] as scheduled, which could cause complications to the resident and other residents receiving [the same treatment].”
