MANORCARE HEALTH SERVICES – PARMA, OHIO
Recently in 2013 and in 2012, Manorcare Health Services located 9055 WEST SPRAGUE ROAD PARMA, OH 44133 was cited by the DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES CENTERS FOR MEDICARE & MEDICAID SERVICES for causing a femur fracture and pressure sore; both causing actual harm to the resident(s).
2012 Survey: Based on record review, document review, and staff interview, the facility failed to ensure staff transferred one resident in accordance with that resident’s care card, which resulted in the resident sustaining a fracture to the left femur. This affected one resident (#1) of nine resident records reviewed. A CT scan performed later on 09/13/12 showed a fracture of the left supracondylar distal femur. During an interview on 09/17/12 at 4:50 P.M., the administrative director of nursing services, confirmed that Resident #1 sustained a fracture as a result of an improper transfer.
2013 Survey: Based on observation, record review and interview, the facility failed to ensure adequate interventions were in place to prevent the developement of a pressure ulcer. This resulted in actual harm for Resident #99 who developed a Stage III pressure ulcer to her sacrum.
