- Failure to Allow the Resident the Right to Participate in the Planning or Revision of the Resident’s Care Plan – citation #F280 date November 12, 2016
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to revise the resident’s Care Plan after the resident was found self-propelling in a wheelchair into the parking lot unsupervised.” It was determined that “no interventions were added to the resident’s Care Plan to address the resident’s continued behavior of entering the facility’s parking lot unsupervised.”
On October 28, 2016, the resident “was self-propelling in the parking lot unsupervised when struck by a vehicle. The incident resulted in a skull fracture and hearing loss and required hospitalization” for three days. The state investigators notified the Administrator, the Director of Nursing and the Assistant Director of Nursing “of the findings of Immediate Jeopardy.”
The deficient practice by the nursing staff “affected the resident, with a history of self-propelling in a wheelchair unsupervised in the parking lot.” On November 7, 2016, the “state agency received a complaint alleging the facility often allowed [the resident] to be in the parking lot at the facility in a wheelchair. The complainant also alleged that on October 28, 2016, [the resident] was hit by a vehicle in the facility’s parking lot.”
A historical medical record from three years earlier had an injury at 9:25 AM that documented that the resident “was found in the facility parking lot.” The resident “was backing his wheelchair across the parking lot [as the individual] was coming to work in the morning around 9:15 AM.” The resident was backing their wheelchair “right behind the cars.” The individual immediately went to the injured resident and stayed with them until they “came to the front entrance porch.”
A review of the documentation back then indicated “there were no approaches added to the Care Plan to guide the staff on how to handle the resident’s behavior of going to the facility’s parking lot unattended.” There was an Elopement/Wandering Review conducted when the “resident was found in the parking lot.” However, the resident “did not have a history of leaving the facility without the need for supervision and leaving the facility without informing staff.” It concluded that “the resident was not at risk for elopement.”
The investigators interviewed the facility Administrator and Director of Nursing, who stated that “the resident is not easy to deal with and had multiple behavior issues. [The resident] also had several psychiatric admissions.”
