- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date May 16, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure proper supervision for [one resident] at risk for elopement [wandering away].” The state surveyors interviewed one resident who indicated that another resident, “has a history of wandering into his room.”
The reporting resident stated that “he was awoken at night with [the other resident] staring at him.” The reporting resident stated, “yesterday, she came into my room seven times. This is a little excessive.” The reporting resident stated that the wandering resident “has even gone into their bathroom and used the toilet.”
The reporting resident stated that “staff had told him that they cannot do anything but talk to her.” However, he said that the female resident “needs to be on oneonone supervision.” The survey team observed the female ‘wandering’ resident while “sleeping soundly in her room. No staff was observed with or near her.”
Less than two hours later, the female resident “was sitting up on the edge of the bed and was dressed. No staff was with her in the room.” The following day just after noon, the female resident “was in the TV room sitting at the table with a coloring page in front of her.”
At that time, a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) at her side said that “she was providing one-on-one [and explained that] she was assigned one-on-one when she arrived at 7:00 AM, but [the resident] was sleeping, so the Assistant Director of Nursing told her to help in the dining room.”
The surveyors observed the resident on another day while in her room in the vacant bed, which was up at waist height, whereas her bed was lowered to the floor.” At that time, the resident “was lying on the bedsheet, covered with a blanket, her feet sticking out of the blanket, and only one non-skid sock [on]. There was no staff with [the resident].”
The surveyors called the 100 Unit Manager into the room, who agreed that “the bed was too high. The Unit Manager gently awakened [the resident] and searched for the bed control to lower the bed. The cord that had the bed controls along with the call bell cord were tangled up around and under [the resident], one of which was wrapped all the way around [the resident’s] arm at the shoulder.”
