The state investigators determined that the “facility failed to ensure residents were adequately supervised to prevent elopement [wandering away].” The investigation involved four residents.
In one case, the facility “failed to prevent injury for [a resident] when she was found in the parking lot on the ground, [after] eloping from the facility.” The investigators determined an Immediate Jeopardy situation existed when the facility discovered the resident had “eloped from the building and sustained [an injury], resulting in hospitalization.”
The facility “failed to ensure a thorough investigation for an injury of unknown origin was conducted, and the final results of the investigation were reported to the State Survey Agency, per State law.” The investigation involved a resident who “was rarely or unable to express ideas and wants or comprehend verbal cues from staff.”
The resident had “severe contractures to the right lower extremity and left lower extremity.” The documentation shows that the resident “had swelling and discoloration of the left foot and ankle.”
A Radiology Report found that there was soft tissue swelling to the left ankle but there was no fracture. The Director of Nursing indicated that the Administrator “was responsible for reporting the incident to the appropriate State agencies and law enforcement, if applicable.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure oxygen was administered, as prescribed, for [two residents].” In one case, a resident’s oxygen levels were delivered at 2.5 L per minute via nasal cannula. However, a Registered Nurse Supervisor and Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) confirmed that the resident’s Physician’s orders indicated that the resident was to receive oxygen at 4.0 L per minute.
