- Failure to Ensure That Each Resident’s Abilities and Activities of Daily Living Do Not Decline Unless Unavoidable – citation #F310 date January 13, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to provide care and services to prevent a decline in ambulation for [one resident].” A review of the resident’s Admission/Readmission Data Collection Form indicated that the resident “could walk with the assistance of one person, was full weight-bearing, and had a tendency to wander.”
A review of the Admission Nurse’s Note documented that on August 4, 2016, the resident “got out of bed, ambulated, but was unstable, was at high risk for a fall, and had a shuffling gait.” By November 4, 2016, the resident’s Quarterly MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment indicated that the resident “was, at the time, totally dependent on getting around on-and-off the unit and did not walk.”
By January 13, 2017, the resident was observed “being transported to the shower room in a wheeled shower chair as he calmly sat upright.” The facility MDS Coordinator indicated that the resident “used to walk in the room at night when first admitted but could no longer do so.”
The Coordinator said that the resident was “on hospice since admission and could not receive therapy until discharged by the hospice, which was on December 29, 2016.” It was noted that the resident began physical and occupational therapies on January 5, 2017. The Rehabilitation Program Manager stated that the resident “cannot stand.”
A Registered Nurse (RN) in charge of providing the resident care stated that the resident “used to get around with a shuffling gait due to [their medical condition] but was not safe to walk with a walker due to constant movement with his arms.” The Director of Nursing stated that the resident “was not a candidate for therapy since his admission with hospice, and it was not safe or restorative for nursing [staff] to walk with [the resident] even with a gait belt since there was a risk of falling.”
However, the Director of Nursing was “unable to provide any evidence of an assessment to indicate if [the resident] was appropriate or may benefit from restorative care to prevent loss of strength and the ability to ambulate.”
