- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date May 9, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to provide adequate supervision for [one resident] when the Director of Marketing and Admissions failed to convey [the resident’s] history of prior elopements (leaving the facility without permission or supervision) to staff.” The Licensed Nurses “failed to complete an admission elopement assessment according to the facility policy. The facility failed to identify and assess [the resident’s] risk for elopement, and on August 14, 2018, the resident left the skilled nursing facility unnoticed and unsupervised.”
As a result of this failure, the resident “did not receive the required medications and wandered about outside in temperatures that at times exceeded 100°F for five days.” The resident was eventually found by police officers on August 18, 2018, “on a city street 7.5 miles from the skilled nursing facility.” The resident “was transported by the police to the General Acute Care Hospital for an overnight stay for assessment and treatment.”
Documentation shows the resident had been admitted to the facility due to a traumatic brain injury and was receiving medication “to treat mental disorders and severe agitation and aggression toward staff while at the hospital.”
The state investigators interviewed the facility Administrator who stated she had interviewed the staff on August 14, 2018, regarding the elopement. The Administrator stated that “during staff interviews, a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) informed her that the resident was last seen in his room at 10:30 AM on August 14, 2018.”
The Administrator said that the CNA was scheduled to take the resident’s vital signs at 11:00 AM but “was unable to locate him.” The CNA had noticed, “the sliding glass door leading from the resident’s room to the outside was opened. The Administrator stated the staff then searched all interior and exterior areas of the facility [and] was not able to locate [the resident] on August 14, 2018.”
The Director of Nursing stated that “she called the local police department to notify the police of the resident’s elopement” at 11:15 AM. As of the next day, the resident “was still missing.” The resident was found by the police department wearing the same clothes that were described on the day that he went missing. At that time “his clothes were very dirty, hair was dirty/tangled, and speech was clear but slow.”
