- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date November 16, 2017
According to state investigators, “the facility failed to revise policies and procedures to prevent residents from eloping [wandering away] from a secured unit. This [failure] was evident for two residents.”
In one case, the surveyors reviewed a resident’s medical records and Care Plan initiated “due to the resident’s risk for elopement.” A Progress Note documented by the Physician described the resident with “poor eyesight and continues to be adamant about leaving the facility despite the fact that [he/she] is wheelchair-bound; (he/she) wants to go ‘home’; (he/she) does not have a plan, (he/she) thinks [they are] able to walk and be independent.”
A review of the resident’s medical records documented on March 16, 2017, noted that “facility staff received a telephone call from the resident’s friend at 5:00 PM who informed the staff that the resident had called [them] from a bus stop at a local hospital.”
The staff “requested the resident’s friend call the resident and instruct him/her to stay where he/she was, and the facility staff would pick the resident up.” Approximately thirty minutes later, “the resident called the facility and informed the facility staff of his/her location. The staff “picked the resident up and the resident was returned safely to the facility.”
During the elopement incident investigation, it was revealed that “the resident had left the unit without informing the staff after participating in an activities program on the unit. The resident informed the staff that [they were] assisted to the bus stop by young people [he/she] could not identify.”
The facility Administrator verified that they had “failed to report the elopement incident to the Office of Health Care Quality.” The Administrator also verified that the policies and procedures “related to the prevention of the elopement were not updated or revised at that time and no further action was taken to ensure that other residents at risk for elopement were prevented from leaving the facility without the knowledge of the staff.”
