- Failure to Keep Every Resident Free from Physical Restraints Unless Need for Medical Treatment – citation #F221 date August 1, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure a systematic process of evaluation and Care Planning [before] using physical restraints (anything near or on the body which restricts movement) by implementing a least restrictive measure [before] using a roll belt and a vest restraint.” The roll belt keeps the resident in bed and the vest restraint helps immobilize the upper body.
The state investigative team determined that these deficient practices created “the potential for harm or injuries, the risk for increase in behaviors or delay in treatment.” In one case, a severely cognitively impaired resident with impaired vision who requires extensive assistance from the nursing staff for bed mobility and dressing was involved in the incident. A review of that resident’s Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Notes indicated that “the resident’s thought content was normal but had delusions that dead people were talking to her. The resident’s intellect, concentration, and attention span were average with poor judgment.” The resident’s treatment plan included “increasing resident’s socialization to prevent isolation.”
However, the resident had a Physician’s order indicating to “apply a roll belt while in the bed for safety.” A review of the physical restraints informed consent form stated the need to use a roll belt “while in bed [was] because the resident attempted to get out of bed when unattended.” The nursing staff was to monitor the effectiveness of the roll belt. The state investigators conducted a tour of the facility and observed a strap tied to the left side of the bed of the resident’s bed frame.
On three separate occasions between July 21, 2017, and July 25, 2017, the surveyors observed the resident “lying in bed with a roll belt restraint applied to the waist and the straps tied to the bed frame.” However, a review of the resident’s clinical records from July 25, 2017, indicated that there was “no written Physician order nor a recapitulated Physician order to apply the roll belt while in bed for safety.” A Licensed Vocational Nurse stated that “she should have placed the roll belt on the recapitulated Physician’s orders but just forgot to add it to the order.”
