99. When I worked LTC
That's exactly what we did. If there was an unwitnessed fall, or a fall greater than 3 feet I think it was,(such as out of bed siderails are not legal in LTC in my state) or any fall with injury, we called 911 immediately. We checked them for bleeding made them as comfortable as possible and waited for the medics.

I work in solid organ transplant now and we see a lot of crazy behavior as well.

If there is a plan and sensible policy in place prior to an event, and in this case there damn well should have been, a situation like this wouldn't have happened. I bet the place is understaffed, and the staff they have is underpaid and overworked and whoever is in charge is an idiot
