- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date April 26, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to prevent a cognitively impaired resident from exiting the facility without staff supervision .” The resident “was at risk for elopement” and “was found hours later at a hotel 2.0 miles away from the facility. The resident required transportation to the hospital for assessment and identification.”
Documentation shows that the resident “was returned to the facility without injury.” State investigators initiated an Immediate Jeopardy [when] the resident “left the facility through the exit door, without supervision, and was found hours later at a hotel 2.0 miles away from the facility.”
A Nurse’s Note, dated April 23, 2019, revealed that the Charge Nurse documented “a call received from the hospital at 12:40 AM [informing the facility of the resident’s] location and retrieval from an uptown location.” The resident “ returned to the facility ” at 4:00 AM with “no new orders and no injury.”
A Nurse Aide explained that the resident and the resident’s family member “came to the third floor during a separate mail delivery [at] approximately 6:00 PM.” The Nurse Aide saw the resident and the family member in the resident’s room “talking to each other.”
Next, the Nurse Aide reported that she saw the resident “walking after the family member in the hallway” [approximately 45 minutes later and] assumed the family member was “taking [the resident] out of the facility to continue a leave of absence.”
The Nurse Aide remade the resident’s bed [and] “did not report visualization of [the resident] in the hall since she assumed [the resident] left with the family member. An alarm did not sound during her shift.” The resident wore a Wander Guard that would signal when “near the open elevator doors.”
