Fracture to Shoulder of Resident at Maple Hill Senior Living
In a report from the MDH it is alleged that the Maple Hill Senior Living (AP) neglected the client, on two separate occasions, when the AP did not answer the call light for several hours. The first time, the client attempted to get out of bed, fell and laid on the floor for several hours. The client sustained a shoulder fracture.
Neglect was substantiated. The facility and the AP were responsible for the maltreatment. The AP neglected to provide the client a scheduled safety check and neglected to answer the client’s call pendant for approximately five hours. The client fell after attempting to transfer herself from the bathroom and laid on the floor for several hours. The client sustained a shoulder fracture.
Maple Hill Senior Living Resident – Fall Incident
In another MDH report it was alleged that Maple Hill Senior Living (AP) neglected to supervise a client who had multiple falls. It is also alleged that the facility neglected to provide the client with clean sheets or correct medications.
Neglect was substantiated. The facility was responsible for the neglect. The client had a fall that resulted in a broken facial bone and required hospitalization. When the client returned from the hospital, a nurse assessed the client to be a high fall risk, but failed to implement fall prevention interventions because the client was on the memory care unit and received hourly checks.
