- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date March 11, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure the residents received adequate supervision to prevent elopement (a resident leaving a treatment setting without authorization when departure presents a threat to the safety of the resident or others).” The complaint investigation involved a resident with a “severe mental disorder, causing an impairment in reality.”
The documentation shows that the resident “left the facility’s Secure Unit and walked into a hotel to ask for assistance (help).” This deficient practice placed the resident at risk “for accidents that could lead to possible harm to the resident [while] wandering on the street.”
The state investigators reviewed the resident’s Elopement Risk/Exit-Seeking Care Plan, indicating that the resident “was at risk for elopement as evidenced by the resident exhibiting exit-seeking behavior and a history of wandering behavior. The goal was for [a resident] not to successfully elope and for staff to monitor the resident’s whereabouts on an ongoing basis.”
A Nurse’s Progress Note dated January 10, 2019, 11:30 PM indicated that “during rounds, the Charge Nurse noted [the resident] was missing. The note indicated the Charge Nurse immediately called for additional staff to locate the resident and a code for a missing resident was implemented.”
The note indicated that the facility began a search around the nursing home and “the neighboring areas in the street [that] continued until 1:30 AM.” The resident was not found. At approximately 2:30 AM, “an employee from a local General Acute Care Hospital informed the facility staff that [the resident] was admitted for further psychiatric evaluation.”
The facility Director of Nursing verified that the resident had left the facility “during the 11:00 PM to 7:00 AM shift” on January 10, 2019, and “did not know how or when [the resident] left the facility undetected.” Additional notations indicated that the resident told the staff “that he escaped from the Skilled Nursing Facility” and “was brought to the hospital by a police officer and admitted for psychiatric evaluation and medication management.”
The investigators reviewed the facility’s policy and procedure titled: Elopements Advanced and Wandering Residents. The documentation indicates that the staff is to monitor and manage residents at risk for elopement and unsafe wandering. The policy indicates “the interventions including: to increase staff awareness of the resident’s risk, modify the resident’s behavior, or minimize the risk associated with hazards will be added to the resident’s Care Plan and communicated to appropriate staff and provided adequate supervision to help prevent accidents or elopements.”
