- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date November 9, 2018
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure that a resident, who requires extensive assistance with bed mobility, was provided adequate supervision and assistance during incontinence care to prevent a fall out of bed with resulting injury.” In a separate incident, the facility “failed to ensure identified interventions were implemented to prevent an elopement [wandering away].”
A Reportable Event Form dated April 7, 2018, identified “that during incontinent care [one resident] slid off the bed and was assisted by a Nurse Aide to the floor.” The Nurse Aide identified that while changing the resident, they had rolled the resident “on his/her left side and tucked a clean brief and linen underneath the resident.”
As the Nurse Aide “walked around to the right side of the bed, [the resident’s] feet went over the edge of the bed. Although [the Nurse Aide] attempted to grab [the resident’s] legs to push them back up, [they were unable] and the resident slid off the bed and onto the floor.”
The nursing staff obtained a medical imaging report that identified that the resident suffered acute trauma to the right leg and knee. The report identified “a displaced distal periprosthetic femoral fracture.”
In a separate incident, another resident was “at risk for elopement due to wandering on the unit and entering other resident rooms in confusion. Additionally, the resident was found attempting to leave the facility, looking for his/her car saying, ‘let us go.’”
A Reportable Event Form dated April 15, 2018, identified that “the resident was observed by a visitor exiting out the front entrance, into the parking lot in a wheelchair.” A Nurse Aide indicated that “he/she ran toward the front entrance and although there was no alarm sounding, [the Nurse Aide spotted the resident] under the archway in the parking lot.”
