The nursing home “failed to ensure the misappropriation of residents’ personal property was prevented.” A resident’s family member reported that another resident in the facility “was wearing a pair of [their loved one’s] pants.
A Nursing Aide admitted that another resident had been incontinent, and when going to the closet to get out of pair pants to change the second resident’s clothing, there were no pants. The Nurse Aide then went to the resident’s closet “and took a pair of pants” to use on the other resident.
The surveyors stated that there was “no documented evidence that [the first resident] gave consent for the [other resident] to wear [their] pants.”
According to state surveyors, “the facility failed to complete an assessment to determine the safety of transporting a resident in a wheelchair without the use of footrests.”
The incident involved a cognitively impaired resident who “requires the extensive assist of one staff member for locomotion on-and-off the unit.” The surveyors say that “there was no documented evidence that an assessment was completed to determine if it was safe to transport [the resident] in a wheelchair without leg rests in place.”
The survey team observed the resident “self-propelling her wheelchair with her feet.” A Nurse Aide “then pushed the resident from the main dining room to her room on the D Wing in a wheelchair that was not equipped with leg rests and the resident was alternately picking up her feet than placing them on the floor while being pushed.”
The surveyors interviewed the Director of Nursing and Nurse Aide who confirmed that the resident “should not have been pushed in a wheelchair without footrests in place.” The physical therapist at the facility confirmed that “assessment to determine if it was safe and pushed [the resident] in a wheelchair without footrests was not completed.”
