According to Minnesota Falls Prevention, falls are the leading cause of injury for children and for adults 35-years and older. Falls and fall-related injuries among adults over age 65 are on the rise.

Although it may seem like someone is safe in their bed, vulnerable nursing home residents suffer serious fractures, head injuries and others when they fall from their bed onto the floor or hit their head or body on items near the bed such as oxygen tanks and night stands.  Many of the injuries as result of falling from bed are preventable, however, nursing homes often refuse or negligently fail to provide bed rails, lower the bed height, provide safety mats or other safety interventions to protect residents at risk of falls.

Help Selecting a Nursing Home in Minnesota

Help Selecting a Nursing Home in Minnesota

Help Selecting a Nursing Home – What Resources Are There?

Help Selecting a Nursing Home -as an attorney who handles nursing home abuse and neglect cases in Minnesota I thought this information from the Minnesota Department of Health was helpful.

Choosing a nursing home for yourself or a loved one can be challenging. This Nursing Home Report Card gives information to help you make your choice. You should also consider other sources of information, visit the nursing homes being considered, and discuss your choices with family members and staff members of the facility.

This report card shows how Minnesota nursing homes scored in seven quality measures. Each nursing home is scored from 1 (lowest) through 5 (highest) on each of the seven measures. For additional information about the report card go to the nursing home report card fact sheet.

First, you can focus your search by choosing your preferred area of the state by zip code or click here to see the report card for an individual nursing home.

The fact sheet answers many of the questions you may have about the Minnesota Nursing Home Report Card. The report card includes information about the 381 nursing homes in the state that are certified to participate in the Medical Assistance (MA) Program.

The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) created the nursing home report card to help you compare nursing homes on the following seven quality measures:

1. Resident satisfaction and quality of life
2.Quality indicators – clinical quality
3.Hours of direct care
4.Staff retention
5.Use of temporary nursing staff
6.Proportion of beds in single bedrooms
7.State inspection results

Each nursing home can receive from one to five stars on each measure. You can choose an area of the state in which you are seeking a home and the three measures that are most important to you. When the results appear, you can obtain more information about how each nursing home scored.

The Minnesota nursing home report card is state of the art. It uses multiple measures of quality, incorporates sophisticated risk adjustments to compare facilities fairly, and looks more closely at clinical outcomes, quality of life and resident satisfaction than others.

Another resource to provide help selecting a nursing home is the federal government CMS Medicare Nursing Home Care website which rates facilities on a fivestar scale.

This website is not intended to provide legal advice as each situation is different and specific factual information must be obtained before an attorney is able to assess the legal questions relevant to your situation.

Nursing Homes Need to Avoid Accidents Including Falls

Nursing Homes Must Prevent Falls When Possible
Nursing Homes Must Prevent Falls When Possible

Nursing Homes Need to Avoid Accidents Including Falls

Fall Accidents Are Very Dangerous

The Minimum Data Set (MDS) is an interdisciplinary assessment tool required by federal regulations for use in nursing homes. The MDS identifies some of the risk factors for falls, including a history of falls, dizziness, wandering, restraint use, and use of drugs in high-risk classes. As its name implies, the MDS is not a comprehensive assessment tool, and yet it is too lengthy for quick fall risk assessments. So in addition to the MDS, many nursing homes use 1-page tools that are commercially available, posted on the Internet, or that have been created within the facility. At a minimum, any quick tool should include the following:

1. A history of falls;
2. Cognition, including fluctuating mental status;
3. Impulsivity;
4. Vision;
5. Ambulation;
6. Continence;
7. Use of high-risk medications (eg, antihypertensives, diuretics, and hypoglycemics);
8. Use of assistive devices for transfer or ambulation;
9. Attached equipment (eg, catheters, intravenous lines, and oxygen); and
10. Familiarity with the environment.

For residents with a history of falls, it is helpful to determine the circumstances of previous falls, although this information may not be available. Are there common characteristics to the falls? For example, have the falls happened when she was using the bathroom, at the same time of day, when her blood sugars were low, or when she was wearing her high heels or not wearing her glasses?

Federal Regulations Require that the Nursing Home Resident Receives adequate supervision and assistive devices to prevent all accidents including falls. Nursing Homes must ensure that the resident receives adequate supervision and assistive devices to prevent accidents. (42 CFR §483.25 (h))
(h) Accidents. The facility must ensure that—
(1) The resident environment remains as free of accident hazards as is possible; and
(2) Each resident receives adequate supervision and assistance devices to prevent accidents.

As an attorney who practices in the area of elder abuse and neglect primarily in nursing homes and other types of elder care facilities, I have handled numerous cases where falls have lead to serious permanent injury or frequently in the death of the resident. Unlike many types of accidents, falls are often preventable with adequate and trained staff providing proper care and monitoring. Even if the actual fall event is an accident many facilities fail to take the necessary required steps to protect the interests of the vulnerable adult, by not adequately responding to the fall event.

Frequently falls result in the breaking of a bone, many times at the level of a joint such as in the hip or knee. The injury may result in the resident becoming bedridden or confined to a wheelchair for rehabilitative care. The loss in ambulation can then lead to many other risk factors such as bed sores from the pressure of laying on the same area for extended periods of time, and loss of muscle strength, leading to additional falls. Fall injuries can also lead to death months after the incident from complications such as pneumonia.

Avoiding falls is very important and should be one of the primary focuses of the nursing home. To protect the residents the nursing home should be frequently monitoring the resident to determine the risks for falling and taking interventions to reduce the change of a fall incident. The effectiveness of the interventions should be evaluated to ensure the effectiveness of safety interventions and if they need to be modified. This is important if there is any sudden change in a resident’s ability to function physically and changes with the cognitive or behavior status of the resident. These changes could be due to an underlying medical condition which needs to be addressed, or problems with medication or numerous other issues. Assessments needed to be performed by a qualified RN nurse, not lower level nursing staff, who should instead be making observations, and reporting their finding to those qualified to implement appropriate safety measures.

What is CMS Five Star Rating System for Nursing Homes?

CMS Medicare Five Star Rating System on Medicare Compare
CMS Medicare Five Star Rating System on Medicare Compare

Medicare Five Star Rating System

CMS Medicare has a Five Star Rating System which according to Medicare, it is called Nursing Home Compare and rates several categories of care on a five star scale.

What is a Five-Star Quality Rating?

The Five-Star Quality Rating System was created to help consumers, their families, and caregivers compare nursing homes more easily and help identify areas about which you may want to ask questions. This rating system is based on continued efforts as a result of the Omnibus Reconciliation Act of 1987 (OBRA ’87), a nursing home reform law, and more recent quality improvement campaigns such as the Advancing Excellence in America’s Nursing Homes, a coalition of consumers, health care providers, and nursing home professionals.

Nursing home ratings are taken from the following three sources of data:
