- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date January 10, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to provide adequate supervision to [a confused resident] to prevent elopement [wandering away] from the facility.” Documentation indicates that the resident “was identified as being at risk for falls.”
The surveyors indicated that the staff “failed to monitor [the resident’s] location, resulting in [the resident] leaving the facility unattended.” The resident’s Admission Nursing Note “described [the resident] as very agitated/anxiety and restless.”
Between 3:30 AM and 5:00 AM on December 20, 2018, the Night Nurse noted that the resident began yelling, “I wanna go home.” The following morning at 2:30 AM, the Night Nurse indicated that “[the resident] again started screaming and yelling and wanted to go home.”
Two days later, on December 23, 2018, the Night Nurse noted that the resident “was resistant with care and attempting to hit the staff. [The resident] was crawling out of bed, sitting on the floor mat,” and was unable to be redirected by the nursing staff.
The day after Christmas at 5:40 PM, the Evening Nurse noted that the resident “walked out to the hallway, pushing his wheelchair and was short of breath with exertion. [The resident] was assisted back into his chair, and oxygen was applied.”
The resident’s SBAR (Situation, Background, Assessment, Recommendation) Communication Form dated the next day on December 27, 2018, just before 10:00 PM indicated that the resident “went out the back door in his wheelchair [and] was halfway down the sidewalk. [State-Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA)] saw [the resident, alerted the nurse, and the resident] was brought back inside.”
The LPN in charge of providing the resident care stated, “she notified the family, Physician, and the Call Manager. When a sitter came in at 11:00 PM, [the resident] was taken to his room.” The LPN stated that “[the resident’s family] provided a private duty sitter as he was confused and restless at night.” The LPN stated that “she could not remember the door alarm going off.”
