- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date February 12, 2019 The investigators determined the nursing home "failed to provide supervision to prevent a cognitively impaired resident, who exhibited
exit-seeking behaviors, from exiting the facility while unsupervised.”
Specifically, the resident “exited the facility and was unaccounted by staff for [seventy minutes], in the late afternoon on January 29, 2019. [The resident] was returned to the facility by the police with severe agitation, but without any physical injuries.”
The investigative team reviewed an Unsafe Wandering Risk Evaluation, dated January 9, 2019. The evaluation indicated that the impaired resident had “decreased safety awareness and [was] not at risk for elopement.” The Admission MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment done nine days later revealed: “no wandering was noted and [the resident] did not ambulate.”
However, the Unsafe Wandering Risk Evaluation performed sixteen days later revealed that the impaired resident “frequently paced or wandered in areas without purpose.” The document revealed “impaired decision-making with decreased awareness of safety.”
The evaluation indicated that the resident “had expressed a desire to leave the center and anger in being in the facility.” The evaluation recommended the placement of a Wander Guard device, to alert the staff if the resident wandered beyond the boundary areas.
On January 25, 2019, midday, a nurse noted that the resident “had been discovered wandering all over the facility this shift. Her cognition was impaired, and a Wander Guard had been placed on her right ankle to prevent elopement.”
Four days later, between 5:00 PM and 5:15 PM, a search began for the resident inside and outside the building. A Nursing Aide conducting the search looked outside and had “gone to the auto parts store next door and been informed that [the resident] had been seen getting into a police car.”
A police officer informed the Charge Nurse that the resident “had requested a ride to the YMCA and indicated she was employed there.”
