- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation date December 3, 2018
According to state surveyors, “the facility did not ensure adequate supervision was provided to prevent accidents for [one resident] reviewed for dementia care. Specifically, [the resident’s] behaviors and unsupervised wandering occur daily and significantly intruded on the privacy of others and placed the resident at risk for physical injury.”
The investigation involved a severely, cognitively impaired resident who “was rarely understood. Her behaviors and wandering occur daily.”
A Comprehensive Care Plan dated April 26, 2017, documented that “the resident was cognitively impaired due to dementia, was at high risk for elopement and falls due to wandering, and [had] impaired safety awareness.”
The updated Care Plan dated June 19, 2017, documented that the resident “was at risk for victimization due to her behaviors and rummaging through other residents’ belongings.” The nursing staff was guided to utilize activities to divert attention and keep the resident away from aggressive residents. The staff was to use a stop sign on the door and 15-minute checks for safety.”
However, a Nursing Progress Note documented that the resident “had nine falls between August 4, 2018, and November 28, 2018. The falls were unwitnessed by staff, and they occurred in or right outside other residents’ rooms.”
An August 15, 2018, Nursing Progress Note documented that “the resident had entered another resident’s room and was then pushed by the other resident, causing her to fall back on the floor and hit her head.” Nine days later, on August 24, 2018, a Nursing Progress Note documented that “the resident entered another resident’s room. The other resident attempted to remove [the wandering resident] by pulling on her clothing, causing [the wandering resident’s] knees to buckle.” The resident “fell to a sitting position, which was witnessed by the other resident’s roommate.”
Documentation shows that a Stop Sign was placed on the doorway. However, the note did not “indicate which resident’s doorway the stop sign was placed.” An incident report dated November 25, 2018, documented “the resident was found on the floor of the male resident’s room. The report documented the resident attempted to grab the resident’s cane from him and fell back.”
Subsequent falls were documented in the medical records. One note indicated that “the resident would constantly walk up and down the hallway, and when staff noticed her going to a resident’s room, they would redirect her. She stated that redirection would not always work for her because they could not keep their eyes on her all the time.”
