- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date September 14, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to provide resident safety related to unsafe smoking and oxygen storage and failed to provide adequate supervision for [one resident] with harmful behaviors toward others.” The investigation involved two residents, “reviewed for smoking, oxygen storage, and supervision.”
The Facility Incident Tracking Log documents that the resident “was involved in physical altercations involving other residents” on three days in 2017. A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) indicated that “these past incidents have mainly been due to [the resident] accidentally running his wheelchair into other residents when trying to go near the patio doors.”
The LPN indicated that “there have been times when this behavior has resulted in a skin tear to [the resident] or another resident.” According to the resident’s Plan of Care, the resident “has no desire to be with groups of people for activities or socialization.”
Documentation shows that the resident has “a history of wandering, propelling his wheelchair backward into people or things, continuously opening exit doors, and becoming physically aggressive with the staff. There are Behavior Tracking Sheets to address each of these behaviors located in the folder kept at the nurse’s station.”
However, a review of some of the Behavior Tracking Sheets revealed “there is no documentation to show that any of these behaviors have occurred in the past two weeks” because “each page is blank.” A Resident Council Action Form addressed the facility’s residents’ concerns that residents are tired of getting run into by the resident and “are afraid they are going to be harmed.”
The facility responded by informing the group that the resident “will be getting a new wheelchair [that will] not let him push backward. This [new wheelchair] will help him [stop] running into others.” However, as of September 11, 2017, the resident “is still hitting people with the wheelchair.”
