- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation date July 27, 2018
According to state surveyors, “the facility failed to implement interventions to ensure residents safety.” The survey team reviewed a resident’s Nursing Progress Note that indicated the resident “was ambulating up and down the hallway continuously, attempting to enter other residents’ rooms, staring at other residents, and standing behind the nurses at close range.” The staff “redirected him and offered him fluid and snacks. All interventions were ineffective.”
A subsequent Nursing Progress Note revealed that while providing care, the resident “punch[ed] the Nurse Aide in the face on the left cheek.” The resident then smacked (the nurse when she attempted to apply a treatment to his face. Staff redirected him with toileting, snack, and a walker.”
A later Nursing Progress Note indicated that the resident “was frequently touching other residents, both male and female. He was rubbing his hands up and down other resident’s face and hair and placing his arms around them. This was escalating other residents’ behavior.”
A Social Service Note indicated that the resident “was putting himself at risk for interfering with his cares and putting others at risk for physical injury and significantly intrudes on the privacy or activities of others.” The documentation shows that the resident “was undoing his belt and unzipping his pants in the hallway and dining room. Staff redirected him and removed him from the areas.”
Other notations indicated that the resident “grabbed the nurse with both hands and smashed her head off the wall causing a laceration to the right side of her head. The staff called the Crisis Center (an outside public resource to determine psychologic needs of a person during an emergency). According to the Director of Nursing, [the Crisis Center] refused to come.”
