- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment and Report the Results of the Investigation To Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date January 12, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure that it provided ongoing mentoring and evaluation for the continued use of physical restraints.” The facility also “failed to develop and implement interventions for reducing or eventually discontinuing the use of the restraints.”
The state investigators reviewed the resident’s Physician’s orders that documented to use a “lap tray on the wheelchair for posture and positioning [every shift] (no frequency of release was present on the order).” The resident’s Treatment Administration Record confirmed the Physician’s orders and “was signed off by staff that the lap tray was to be put on the wheelchair every shift.”
However, a review of the resident’s clinical chart revealed that there was “no documentation of the family being informed of the risk or benefit of the wheelchair lap tray restraints. The clinical record had no evidence of continued evaluation to reduce the type of restraint.” Additionally, the resident’s Care Plan “had no focus area regarding restraints.”
A review of the resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) during this time frame documented “in the assessment that no trunk restraint, limb restraint, bed alarm, chair alarm, or other restraint was to be used by [the resident].” However, staff members confirmed that “if the assessment area for the restraint had a positive response [in the section of assessment], it would drive the program to create a restraint Plan of Care focus area, which would include the goals and intervention services for the use of restraints.”
A staff member stated that the resident “has had the restraint, and she transferred from the Memory Care Unit, which he believed had been approximately two months.” The surveyors observed the resident with a full tray in front “of her wheelchair, her arms on the tray; the tray was observed to prevent [the resident] from arising from the chair.”
