A facility staff member dropped a 91 year old resident on her head on 2/24/07, causing injuries that led to her death nine days later. The death certificate stated she died from blunt force head injury. A CNA dropped the resident while moving her from a wheelchair into her bed using a Hoyer Lift (mechanical lift). The facility violated its policy and the resident's careplan by not providing two staff members to assist with the transfer.
