On 8/15/05, a 54 year old resident, who was at risk for falls, was found on the floor with a serious injury to his forehead. The facility staff did not adequately assess the resident's injuries or notify his physician until the next day when he could not be aroused. He was then hospitalized, where it was determined he suffered huge cerebral bleeding. The resident died two days after being hospitalized. The facility was cited because its failures to immediately consult with the resident's physician about his injuries and conduct a comprehensive assessment were a direct proximate cause of his death.
