- Failure to Ensure That Every Resident Is Free from the Use of Physical Restraints Unless Need for Medical Treatment – citation #F604 date August 15, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure that [one resident] was free from physical restraints for the purpose of staff convenience when after a fall from bed, the facility placed the right side of [the resident’s] bed next to the right wall of the room preventing her from voluntarily getting out of the right side of the bed in a scoop mattress on her bed.”
A scoop mattress “is a mattress that sags in the middle from which a resident cannot rise and is used for residents that are prone to unassisted bed exits or falling out of bed. After the scoop mattress was added to the resident’s bed, she reported feelings of claustrophobia (fear of confined spaces).”
The facility also failed to “follow their policy and procedure by not pre-screening the resident [before] placing her bed against the wall in a scoop mattress on her bed, and by not obtaining a Physician’s order and consent [before] use. This failure had the potential to contribute to negative effects including loss of dignity and feelings of confinement.”
The state investigative team reviewed the Interdisciplinary Team Progress Note dated January 29, 2018. The note indicated that the group had met regarding an unwitnessed fall the resident had on January 27, 2018, at 8:45 PM. The team recommended the therapy department perform screening before placing a scoop mattress on the resident’s bed. However, “there was no documented evidence that the interdisciplinary team reviewed and discussed the potential physical or psychosocial impacts associated with the use of the scoop mattress or placing the bed against the wall. There was no documented evidence the interdisciplinary team considered these interventions as forms of restraint.”
A review of the Physical Therapy Progress Note dated March 1, 2018, indicated that the resident “had not been screened for the appropriateness of the scoop mattress until [that day].”
