- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date July 12, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure [one resident] was supervised while [the resident] had a lighter in his possession.” The resident “was left alone outside and started a fire in the facility’s garbage can [that was] located directly outside the facility’s front entrance door.”
As a result of a lack of supervision, the “flames moved from the garbage can and spread to a nearby tree, which was in direct contact with the building. This [failure by the nursing staff] put all residents at risk for harm, injury, or death.”
A review of the report sent to the California Department of Public Health involving a facility reported incident identified that the resident “started a fire in the garbage can outside the facility. The report showed that on June 4, 2019, [the resident] was exhibiting aggressive behaviors and one-on-one supervision for the resident and staff safety. The report shows [that the resident] was left alone for one to two minutes while the staff member left to find another staff member to supervise [the resident].”
The fire “was identified when another staff member arrived to supervise [the aggressive resident].” A review of the facility’s policies and procedures titled Smoking By Residents indicates that the interdisciplinary team “will develop an individualized plan for safe storage of smoking materials, provide assistance, and supervision to residents, if necessary.”
A review of the resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) showed that the resident “had moderately impaired cognition and was independent with the use of a wheelchair. The resident’s Care Plan said that interventions would include “supervision with smoking and his smoking materials were to be maintained in the medication cart.” One of the interventions revealed that staff must “respect the resident’s rights. The resident refused to keep smoking materials in the medication cart. However, there was no further documentation to show how the facility was to secure [the resident’s] smoking materials for safety.”
The Safe Smoking Assessment indicated that the resident “had impulsive behaviors and required supervision when he smoked.” On June 4, 2019, in the early morning hours, the resident “was sitting outside and set fire to a garbage can which spread to a tree.” The fire department and police responded after a call to 911. “The resident denied lighting the fire.”
