- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation date August 8, 2018
According to state surveyors, “the facility did not provide adequate supervision for [one resident] with wandering behaviors.” On June 10, 2018, a family member of the resident “visited him at the facility. Following the visit, [the resident’s] family left the facility. Facility nursing staff mistakenly assumed [the resident] left with his family to go on a home visit.”
The resident “was last seen by two staff members in the afternoon [no documented time] of June 10, 2018. Per the facility investigation, [and Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)] attempted to contact [the resident’s] family in the morning of June 11, 2018 to find out what time he would be returning.” However, the LPN was unable to reach the resident’s family.
The LPN, “was familiar with [the resident] and his family and thought it was unusual [the resident’s] family did not answer the phone.” The LPN informed the Nursing Home Administrator, “who along with other staff decided to look for [the resident] on the facility’s two West Wing as all residents residing on the 2 West Wing had recently (within several days) been moved to the two East Wing.”
The resident “was found on June 11, 2018 at approximately 8:15 AM, sleeping in an empty bed on the 2 West Wing.” The facility staff had assumed that the resident “left with his family on June 10, 2018 and did not attempt to confirm [that the resident] was with his family and had his needed medications until [the LPN] came on duty on the morning of June 11, 2018.”
The state surveyors reviewed the resident’s records and the facility investigation and interviewing staff members to determine that the resident “did not receive the evening meal and did not receive assistance with eating cares and missed [one dose of their medication].”
It was determined that the resident “did not suffer any ill effects from this incident. Following the incident, the facility locked the entrances of the 2 West Wing.”
