Based on observations, interviews, and record review, the facility failed to assure staff
used proper techniques to reduce the possibility of accidents and injuries during the use
of a gait belt transfer (a safety device and mobility aid used to provide assistance
during transfers, ambulation or repositioning) for two of 13 sampled residents, (Resident
#26 and #185). Staff also failed to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for mechanical
lifts when they locked the back casters (brakes) while lifting and lowering the residents.
This affected Resident #19 and #28. The facility census was 34.
Review of the Manufacturer’s guideline for the Mechanical Lift showed:
– Does not recommend locking the rear casters of the lift when lifting the resident.
Review of the facility’s policy dated 3/15 for Gait Belt Use, showed:
– To provide better control and balance while assisting the resident with ambulation and
transfers;
– Apply belt to the resident’s waist, tighten to fit snugly.
1. Review of the Resident #19’s care plan with a start date of 3/7/17, only addressed the
resident’s difficulty making self understood.
Review of the resident’s Minimum Data Set, (MDS) a federally mandated assessment
instrument completed by facility staff, dated 3/6/18, showed:
– Moderately impaired decision making skills;
– Totally dependent on staff for transfers;
– [DIAGNOSES REDACTED].
Observation on 5/24/18 at 2:53 P.M., showed the resident sat in his/her wheelchair.
Certified Nurse Aid (CNA) B and E transferred the resident to his/her bed with a
mechanical lift. CNA E placed the lift legs around the resident’s wheel chair and locked
the rear caster’s before he/she raised the resident. He/she unlocked the brakes and rolled
the resident in the lift over to the resident’s bed. He/she placed the legs of the lift
under the bed and then locked the rear casters before he/she lowered the resident to the
bed.
2. Review of Resident #28’s MDS, dated [DATE], showed:
– Moderately impaired decision making skills, but knew he/she was in a nursing home;
– Totally dependent on staff for transfers;

Review of the resident’s current care plan, with a review target date of 7/25/18, did not
direct staff how to transfer the resident.
Observation and interview on 5/24/18 at 8:04 A.M., showed the resident lay in bed. CNA B
and CNA F attached the mechanical lift sling to the mechanical lift. CNA B placed the
mechanical lift legs under the bed and locked the rear casters before he/she lifted the
resident. CNA B moved the lift with the resident in the lift sling over to the resident’s
wheel chair, locked the rear castors and lowered the resident into the wheelchair. CNA B
said the facility taught the CNAs to lock the rear casters before they raised or lowered
the resident.
During a joint interview on 5/25/18 at 4:59 P.M., the Director of Nurses and the Corporate
QA Nurse said:
– They were unsure whether or not the rear castors of the mechanical lift should or should
not be locked when lifting a resident and then agreed they needed to read the
manufacturer’s guidelines to know which was correct.
3. Review of Resident #26’s care plan, revised on 10/19/17, showed:
