- Failure to Ensure That Every Resident Is Free from the Use of Physical Restraints Unless Need for Medical Treatment – citation #F604 date January 10, 2019
According to state investigators, “it was determined that the facility failed to assess for restraint alternative, have Physician involvement, and failed to release the restraint every two hours.” A review of the resident’s clinical records indicated that the resident had a gastronomy tube for feeding and “is only able to move her left arm, left hand, and left finger independently.”
Documentation shows that the resident “has an abdominal binder in place which is coded as a restraint.” The abdominal binder was applied based on “the physical restraints assessment documentation.” However, “prior Progress Notes detail that the abdominal binder in place “was applied due to the resident pulling at her gastronomy tube.”
A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) stated that “the abdominal binder is released for tube feeding initiation, medication pass twice a day, and for bathing (a.m./p.m. care). The LPN agreed that the removal occurred approximately six times per day.”
However, a review of the resident’s Care Plan and stated, “release abdominal binder every two hours during care and the shift. The revision replaced the following statement, released binder every shift during care.”
The Nursing Home Administrator stated during an interview that “she was unable to provide any monitoring for the release of the restraint every two hours [and that] there was no documentation of other interventions that were attempted [before] use of the abdominal binder.”
The survey team reviewed the facility’s Monthly Assessments for three consecutive months, and “there was no consent provided for the use of the binder.” When the Administrator was asked “how often the resident has pulled the gastronomy tube out” the Administrator responded, ‘One time.’”
