- Failure to Ensure That Every Resident Is Free from the Use of Physical Restraints Unless Need for Medical Treatment – citation #F604 date May 3, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to document appropriate medical symptoms to warrant the use of restraint and follow a restraint reduction plan for [one resident].” The facility’s Physical Restraints/Enabler Policy indicates that “physical restraints are any manual method or physical or mechanical device, material, or equipment attached or adjacent to the resident’s body, which the individual cannot remove easily and which restricts freedom of movement or normal access to one’s body.”
A review of the resident’s current Physician’s orders and Physical Restraints/Enabler Consent form dated April 15, 2016, documents that the resident “is to have a wheelchair with a laptop cushion. This same form documents the reason for the restraint safety. The same form documents release every two hours with activities, at meals, and as needed.”
An assessment form documented on March 16, 2018, that the resident “rocks back and forth in the wheelchair. The laptop cushion keeps [the resident] sitting in the wheelchair and does not restrict [the resident’s] movement.”
The resident was observed on two occasions occurring on April 30, 2018, just before noon and May 1, 2018, at 11:30 AM. On those occasions, the resident “was sitting in the facility’s dining room feeding herself lunch.” The resident was sitting upright in the wheelchair “with correct posture. [The resident’s] laptop cushion was positioned across [their] lap during these times.”
The investigative team interviewed a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) who verified that the resident’s “laptop cushion was positioned across [their lap while they were] eating lunch.” The LPN also verified that “this laptop cushion should have been removed before the lunch meal” and confirmed that the laptop cushion “is to prevent [the resident] from falling forward.”
The RN “attempted to have the resident remove [their] laptop cushion from [their] lap.” However, the resident was unable to remove the cushion.
