- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date August 24, 2018
According to state investigators, “the facility failed to adequately supervise and monitor [one resident] that was identified as an elopement [wandering away] risk.” The surveyors interviewed the Nursing Home Administrator who revealed that the resident “exited the facility last night” some time “between 8:00 PM and 8:30 PM and was then located .5 mile away from the facility at 11:25 PM by an off-duty employee.”
The surveyors reviewed a photograph taken by the facility security camera that identified the resident “walking across the facility parking lot toward Holmes Avenue” at 9:30 PM the evening before. A review of the resident’s Clinical Record included diagnoses of anxiety (that was frequent, intense, excessive and persistent worry and fear about everyday situations), cataract in the left eye (blurred vision),” and an irreversible, progressive medical condition of the brain that resulted in “loss of reality, contact and functional ability.”
A nursing evaluation involving an elopement risk identified the resident “a high risk, a high score for an elopement, so all safety measures and interventions, such as applying security devices to the right ankle and marking the room door with the resident’s name to aid in remembering may be forthcoming.
The Nursing Home Administrator revealed that the resident “left the facility via the third-floor fire exited door, down four flights of steps, (thirty-three steps), through four exit doors, across the section of the facility parking lot.” The resident then walked down to major two-lane highways, crossing three intersections, with traffic lights and crossed over one of the major two-lane highways to the other side of the street.”
The Administrator verified that “approximately three hours went by between the last time [the resident] was seen on the secure nursing unit until she was found at 11:25 PM, a half a mile away from the facility.” Even though the facility had installed a magnetic locking system to the door frame header, it “was found not to be operating as it should have been, allowing [the exit seeking resident] to exit the secure Nursing unit.”
