An 83-year-old man living in an assisted living facility was discovered in his bed with a fractured hip. Although he could not get out of bed without maximum assistance of the staff no fall or any other incidents had been reported by the staff. An expert review of the X-rays established that the fracture was clearly from a fall. Despite the lack of documentation the only explanation for his injury was a fall after which he was put back in bed and the incident covered up.
