- Failure to Develop and Implement a Care Plan Care Plan That Meets All the Resident’s Needs – citation #F656 date July 23, 2018
According to state surveyors, “the facility failed to implement a comprehensive care plan for [two residents].” One incident involved a severely, cognitively impaired resident whose assessment documented that the resident “did not have behaviors of wandering, was independent with locomotion on-and-off the unit, requires a wheelchair for mobility, and did not have a wander/elopement alarm.”
The surveyors reviewed a State Reportable Incident Report dated May 23, 2018.” The report indicated that the resident “was found out in front of the building [at] about 8:00 PM. He was last seen in the facility about 7:00 PM. The resident has now been placed on an ‘every hour’ visual check. The resident is unable to tell us how he got out as he has a very hard time expressing himself.”
Relevant history includes that the resident “was a severe alcoholic and lived in an independent apartment at the facility before becoming a long-term care resident after Adult Protective Services got involved. Records show that the resident had never left the facility before.
However, a review of the resident’s Care Plan after May 27, 2018, shows that the plan was “not updated to include the resident’s elopement [wandering away] or interventions to prevent further elopement.” A Facility Incident Report dated June 7, 2018, at 8:00 PM, documented that another resident told a staff member the wandering resident “is out on the road and pointed to the front door.”
The nursing staff went to the front door, walked outside to the road, and saw the resident “approximately two blocks up the street.” However, a review of the resident’s Care Plan after the second elopement shows that it was “not updated to include the resident’s elopement or that the nurse was supposed to chart on the resident every two hours that he was safe in the facility. The Care Plan did not document any new interventions to prevent further elopement.”
A facility Incident Report dated June 14, 2018, documents that the resident again “left the facility without permission stating he was bored, and he will leave again if he gets bored.” A Nursing Note documents that the resident “left the facility without supervision or permission. The nursing staff asked the resident how he knew how to get out of the building. The resident replied that “he knows the code and when to leave without someone seeing him.”
A June 7, 2018, State Reportable Incident Report documents that the resident was spotted “going east up Skelly Drive” at 7:17 PM. He was brought back to the facility by one staff member with no injuries.”
