- Failure to Provide Appropriate Care for a Resident to Maintain or Improve Their Range of Motion – citation #F668 date February 5, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure that [a resident] with limited mobility received appropriate services and assistance to maintain or improve mobility with maximum practicable independence as ordered.” The investigation involved two residents “who were ordered restorative nursing care.”
The surveyors interviewed one resident’s son who stated that the resident “reported she was to receive restorative care daily and was to be walked as part of that care.” The son said that on Thursday, February 1, 2018, “[the resident] walked, but that more recently, his mother told him she did not walk.”
The resident’s son stated, “I see her every two to three weeks, and if she does not walk, I can see the difference. If she can consistently walk, she would be a little better.” The surveyors interviewed the resident a couple days later, who stated that “she walked when someone was with her. The facility scheduled her walking times. The facility did not adhere to her restorative care days, and they use the Restorative Care Aide somewhere else.”
The resident stated that “approximately a week ago, they informed her that they needed the girl somewhere else and pulled her from here and put her on another floor.” A Physical Therapist said the resident had been evaluated and had continued therapy until June 2, 2017. The therapist said that the resident “was then placed on a nursing restorative program [and that the resident] was supposed to be getting the restorative nursing program from June 9, 2017, to January 18, 2018.”
The Physical Therapist stated that the resident had been assessed and evaluated for therapy as a request by the resident “due to her complaint of increased difficulty with transfers and decreased mobility, decreased gait, and activity.” The therapist had confirmed that the resident “had a decline to require more assistance with balance; was having increased difficulty with standing and standing tolerance; had greater gait deviation, and that this decline in mobility increased [the resident’s] risk for falls.”
The Restorative Aide stated that “she was pulled so often to conduct the other nurse aide activities that she could not always participate in the restorative program.”
