- Failure to Keep Every Resident Free from Physical Restraints Unless Need for Medical Treatment – citation #F221 date October 13, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “did not assess [a resident] for the need of physical restraints.” The resident “had restraints on each foot, one strap at the ankle, and one strap across the top of her foot to keep her feet on the wheelchair pedals.”
The state investigators determined that “this deficient practice could affect one resident who utilized a wheelchair in the facility and could put the resident at risk for potential injuries.” The investigation involved a resident who “was able to make her needs known.” The resident’s Quarterly MDS (Minimum Data Set) under restraints revealed: “that no restraints were used.”
A review of the resident’s Electronic Care Plan revealed that “straps were not addressed in the resident’s Plan of Care.” Also, “there was no assessment for the use of the straps on her feet.” The resident’s medical records revealed “no evidence that the Responsible Party was informed of the potential risks and benefits for the use of restraints.”
The state investigators conducted an initial tour of the facility and revealed that the resident was “sitting in her room, in her wheelchair, facing the window, with her head leaning forward toward the right.” As the Licensed Vocational Nurse and the surveyor entered the resident’s room, the resident “began to ask for someone to release her right foot.”
The nurse “released the right ankle strap and the strap across the foot and [the resident] automatically began to move her leg up and down stating she could now straighten it out and it felt good.”
The surveyor asked about the left leg, and she stated that “it did not hurt.” Later that afternoon, at 12:58 PM, the resident was observed “sitting in the dining room for lunch at the table with an overbed table in front of her with juice, water, and coffee.” Both of the resident’s feet “were strapped down to the wheelchair pedals.” At 8:07 AM the next morning, the resident was “in the dining room waiting for breakfast with both feet strapped down to the wheelchair pedals.”
The investigators interviewed a Licensed Vocational Nurse, the MDS Coordinator, who confirmed that the resident’s feet restraints “were not documented on the annual MDS, quarterly MDS, and electronic Care Plan.
