According to state investigators, “the facility failed to ensure residents were free from involuntary seclusion.” This deficient practice affected two residents “reviewed for abuse.”
The state investigators reviewed camera footage capturing images on March 4, 2018, to March 5, 2018, went to State-Tested Nursing Assistants (STNAs) “had placed tables and linen carts in front of the entryway to the dining area, barricading [two residents] who were still in the dining room.”
The camera footage revealed that “staff were observing residents from the other side of the tables for [most of] the time unless they were completing rounds. No follow-up interviews were documented on the investigative packet.” The state survey team stated that “the investigation was not completed.”
Surveyors interviewed the facility Director of Nursing and Assistant Director of Nursing who revealed “she was notified about the incident and begin an investigation. However, [she] did not have it completed. She said she only had notes, and nothing typed up formally [stating that] the STNAs were removed from the schedule on their next working day and were pending investigation.”
The Assistant Director also stated that “she did not report the incident to the Ohio Department of Health because there was no category to put it under, and once they watch the video, she determined it was not anything, so she did not report it.”
The investigators reminded the facility of their policy titled Abuse/Neglect Reporting. The policy states that:
“Residents are to be free from abuse, [with] the following definitions of the abuse defined as involuntary seclusion or separation of a resident from other residents, from his or her room, or confinement to his or her room with or without a roommate against the resident’s will.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure residents receive assessed supervision and adaptive equipment during smoking.” One incident involved a resident who “was a smoker and required supervision while smoking related to unsafe smoking habits of dropping cigarettes. The resident must wear a smoking apron while smoking.”
The survey team made observations during an initial tour the facility that revealed: “five residents gathered at the end of the southwest hall, cursing and talking loudly about who was taking them out to smoke.” However, the resident was found smoking unsupervised in the smoking area until in STNA arrived and informed the resident he was not permitted to smoke unsupervised and had him return inside the facility.
