- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date November 21, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to provide adequate supervision for [six residents] identified as at risk for unsafe smoking.” This “failure contributed to [a resident] smoking unsupervised and sustaining a burn on her abdomen and placed other residents at risk for serious injury/impairment/death from [smoking] fires.”
The state investigators determined that “the facility’s failure to adequately supervise all smokers to ensure their safety and prevent accidents resulted in the substandard quality of care at the Immediate Jeopardy level as of September 10, 2018, which was determined to be ongoing.”
In one case, a resident’s medical records revealed that the resident “smoked a half pack of cigarettes per day." The Nurse’s Note indicated that the resident “was a smoker who required supervision due to [the patient] smoking in her room.” The resident had “poor memory, unsafe smoking habits, and was unable to demonstrate the location of the designated smoking area.”
The form stated that the resident “lit a cigarette in her room on two occasions today.” Another Nursing Progress Note dated June 13, 2018, revealed that the staff “smelled cigarettes in the hallway and [the resident] was again observed smoking inside the facility.” A Progress Note dated the following day indicated that “[the resident] was a smoker and spent time in the courtyard smoking.”
On July 6, 2018, the resident’s daughter was at a Care Plan meeting and informed the facility that “the family would supply her mother with smoking materials.” The Smoking Evaluation form was completed that day, and the resident “continued to require supervision with smoking [because the resident] sometimes forgets and smokes in the room. The evaluation indicated [the resident] no longer disposed of cigarette ashes and butts properly.”
A Nursing Progress Note dated after the above events detail that the resident was burned on the right abdomen and had a blister in an area around her navel. It was determined that as a supervised smoker she was to “wear a smoking apron and have no access to cigarettes or lighters.”
