Failed to make sure that the nursing home area is free from accident hazards and risks and provides supervision to prevent avoidable accidents

**NOTE- TERMS IN BRACKETS HAVE BEEN EDITED TO PROTECT CONFIDENTIALITY** Based on observations, staff interviews and record review, the facility failed to provide adequate supervision and assistive devices to prevent a fall, which resulted in a major injury for one Resident (Resident #4), from a total sample of 23 residents.

Findings include:

Resident #4 was admitted to the facility in 11/2013 with the following pertinent Diagnoses: [REDACTED]. Review of the Minimum Data Set (MDS) for a significant change (after fall with major injury 8/5/2016) with an assessment reference date of 8/9/16, indicated the following: Resident #4 had adequate vision/hearing, clear speech and was able to understand others with a Brief Interview for Mental Status (BIMS) of 10 out of 15 (indicates moderate cognitive impairment). Resident #4 requires extensive assist with one person assist for transfer, does not ambulate in room or corridor (ambulated prior to fall with rolling walker), is incontinent of bladder/bowel and is totally dependent with 2+ physical assist for toilet use, experiences pain almost constantly with a rating of 8 /10. Resident #4 had a fall with major injury since original admission. Review of the Fall Care Plan for Resident #4 indicates the following fall risk interventions were in place at the time of fall on 8/5/16: slipper socks, bed alarm, ½ side rails during the night, safety education (dated 11/12/13). Review of the CNA Kardex for Fall Precautions (no dates) indicates: bed alarm, low bed, floor mat, non-skid slipper socks in bed, assist of 2 with rolling walker and toileting every 2 hours.

Review of the facility’s Incident Analysis Report for an un-witnessed fall on 8/5/16 indicated that staff responded to Resident and roommate screaming in his/her room. The Resident was found on the floor at 2:15 A.M. complaining of severe pelvic and right buttock pain and with blunt head trauma. Possible Contributing Factors indicated bed alarm did not activate. The Resident was sent out to the hospital and the Emergency Department Physician Report indicates: 1.) frontal subarachnoid hemorrhage (small), 2.) right pelvic fractures. Interventions following fall #1 include physical therapy, pain management and continue bed alarm.

Review of the Initial Fall Investigation Form (dated 8/5/16) indicates that the Resident’s bed alarm did not work correctly, the Resident was found at the foot of his/her roommate’s bed supine on floor with feet facing bathroom. Question #17 indicates What do you think could have prevented this fall? The staff response indicates improved pad alarms. On 7/27/17 at 12:30 P.M., the Surveyor interviewed Nurse #1 and Nurse #2. Both nurses said that there has been a problem with bed/chair alarms not functioning because the clips (which attach to the battery and make the device operable) break so easily. Both staff said that this had been going on for a long time and that the facility was now changing alarm companies. On 7/27/17 at 1:30 P.M. the Surveyor reviewed the Maintenance Logs for all units with the Facility Plant Director for June 17th through August 17th 2016 (prior to Resident’s fall). The Surveyor observed all 3 units to have a total of 7 non-functioning chair/bed alarms. Resident #4’s alarm was not indicated on the list of alarms not functioning or repaired during this time frame.

On 7/27/17 at 9:00 A.M. the Surveyor interviewed the Director of Nursing (DON) with the Clinical Nurse Consultant (CNC). The DON said that the facility was having some previous trouble with clips breaking (with the old alarm pads). On 7/27/17 at 2:30 P.M. the Surveyor observed the Resident sitting up at edge of bed holding the bedside table. The Resident was squirming around in the bed. The Surveyor asked if everything was okay. The Resident said I have to go to the bathroom. The Surveyor went to find assistance and observed 5 staff members in the rear nursing station preparing for change of shift. The Surveyor did not observe available staff on the unit to assist the Resident. The Surveyor went to the other side of the unit and asked a restorative aide (RA) for assistance. The Surveyor and RA walked toward the Resident’s room and heard the bed alarm start to sound. The staff members in the rear nursing station did not respond to the bed alarm. The Resident’s family member, who was at the front nursing station ran to the Resident’s room with the RA and assisted the Resident who was attempting to ambulate to the bathroom. The Surveyor went into the rear nursing station (where 5 staff members remained) and could not hear Resident #4’s bed alarm sounding. The above observation was shared with the DON on 7/27/17 at 3:40 P.M.

Failed to provide food in a way that meets a resident's needs.

**NOTE- TERMS IN BRACKETS HAVE BEEN EDITED TO PROTECT CONFIDENTIALITY** Based on observation, staff interviews, dietary ticket and medical record review, the facility failed to ensure that one Resident (Resident #2), received 2 meals with appropriate diet texture, and according to the Speech Language Pathologist’s recommendations, from a total sample of 23 residents.

Findings include:

Resident #2 was admitted to the facility in 8/2013 with [MEDICAL CONDITION], dysphagia (difficulty swallowing), [MEDICAL CONDITION] stricture and obstruction with a recent significant weight loss. Review of the most recent Quarterly Minimum Data Set (MDS) with an assessment reference date of 2/14/17 indicates a Brief Interview for Mental Status (BIMS) score of 00 or severely cognitively impaired, requires supervision with cueing and setup assistance and had an un-intentional weight loss of 10 % or more in the last 6 months. Review of the Resident’s Weight Loss Care Plan (6/20/17) indicates the following: Diet as ordered/ House, Puree texture, thin liquids, may thin pureed texture with milk or broth for easier consumption with straw/mug spoon. Eats meals in dining room and lunch club group. Review of a Speech Language Pathology Treatment Encounter Note on 7/4/17 indicated that the Resident had received the wrong tray due to an error on the dining ticket. The Resident incorrectly received a few bites of chicken and rice. The Resident began to reflux (regurgitate) shortly into the meal and brought up thick, stringy secretions and the bites presented. The note also indicates that the SLP will report ticket error to dining management.

Review of the 5/23/17 dietary note indicates that the Resident has a recent and significant weight loss (12 % in 6 months) and has not been accepting of solid foods, but has been accepting liquids and soft pureed foods with a straw. Review of the SLP Discharge Summary of 7/12/17 indicates following cues in 1:1 setting, increased ease of access with blended pureed, increased [MEDICAL CONDITION] challenges this period with audible gurgles with rapid sips, rate needs to be controlled by caregiver to prevent reflux and subsequent aspiration (breathing in liquid or solid food particles into the lungs). Staff education ongoing and discharge with puree diet/ thin liquids and consistent cues/assist for use of strategies.

On 7/28/17 at 9:45 A.M. Surveyor #1 observed Resident #2’s tray following breakfast with CNA#1 outside of the Resident’s room. The CNA said that she had assisted the Resident with breakfast and said that he/she only ate about 30%. The Surveyor observed a whole corn muffin in a small bowl and an empty banana peel with no straws on the tray. The CNA said that the muffin was in a slurry (slurry refers to a thickener dissolved in liquid and helps dry, crumbly foods (bread) become softer and more liquid, which makes them easier to swallow) and that she had cut the banana into pieces. The entire banana had been eaten. The Surveyor observed the muffin whole with a bite missing and the slurry sitting in the bottom of the bowl. Following the tray observation at 10:00 A.M., the Surveyor interviewed the SLP (covering for vacation). The Surveyor showed the meal ticket to the SLP. The SLP looked at the meal ticket and said that’s not the right meal. P is for pureed muffin and pureed means pureed. The SLP also said that the Resident should never have been given a banana. The Surveyor asked about the slurry and the SLP said that the ticket indicates No slurried/pureed sandwiches and thin puree with milk to milkshake consistency. Pureed does not mean slurried is acceptable. The Surveyor interviewed the Food Service Director (FSD) at 10:15 A.M. The FSD looked at the meal ticket and said I don’t know why the Resident got a banana. On 7/28/17 the Surveyor requested the incident report for 7/4/17 from the DON. An incident report was not created following the tray error and therefore, no action plan was put in place on 7/4/17 to prevent it from happening again.
