- Failure to Develop, Write and Use Policies and Forbid Mistreatment, Neglect or Abuse of Residents – citation #F224 date November 2, 2016
According to state investigators, the facility “failed to implement policies and procedures that prohibit neglect of residents.” The facility “failed to ensure [one resident] was monitored to prevent elopement from the facility.” An Immediate Jeopardy was identified and requires a plan of removal, including ongoing monitoring and in-servicing of staff members.
These “failures could affect the five residents with a history of elopement by placing them at risk for injury or death.” In one incident, a resident was observed exiting “the facility as a visitor held the door open for him. The visitor asked the surveyor if it was okay for the resident to be outside, and the surveyor responded that she did not know.”
The surveyor “instructed the visitor to alert the facility staff, and the visitor walked back into the facility to alert the facility staff.” At that time, the resident “walked quickly with his walker across the parking lot. The surveyor started walking toward the resident as he neared the street, and two facility staff members caught up with the resident and escorted him back to the facility.”
The investigator stated that “facility staff members reported the resident did not have a Wander guard device” on at the time.” A Licensed Vocational Nurse stated during an interview that “all staff was notified to keep an eye on [the resident].”
During an interview with a Registered Nurse (RN), it was revealed that the resident “had eloped from the facility many times. Facility staff [members] were instructed to keep a close eye on the resident, and the code on the exit door had been changed. She reported one night, [on a date unknown], he was found by the gas station at about 8:00 PM. The gas station was about 0.25 miles away from the facility.”
The Registered Nurse also reported that “nurses were instructed to distract [the resident] to keep them from exiting the facility.” The RN reported that “one day, on a date unknown, the resident exited the facility and was close of the street. She had to help bring him back into the facility.”
