- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date October 10, 2018
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to provide adequate supervision for [one resident] who had dementia and an anxiety disorder. This deficient practice placed the resident at risk for falls and injury.” The investigation involved a severely cognitively impaired resident who “requires extensive assistance with locomotion on-and-off the unit, dressing, toilet use, and personal hygiene and limited assistance with bed mobility with one-person physical assistance.”
A licensed Vocational Nurse stated that around 2:00 PM on August 11, 2018, the Activity Staff informed her that the resident’s son was coming by at 3:00 PM to “pick the resident up to take her out on a pass for a hair appointment.” The nurse stated she notified the CNA plus who had the resident “ready and up in the wheelchair before 2:30 PM.”
When the resident’s son arrived, he was informed that his mother “was outside on the patio.” After going to the patio, the son came back “upset and screaming, how come the resident was left outside on the patio unattended?”
The investigators reviewed the Fall Risk Observation dated June 22, 2018, indicating that the resident “was at a high risk for falls.” The resident “had intermittent confusion and poor safety awareness, was wheelchair-bound, has poor vision, is unable to stand without assistance, and was taking antihypertensive medications and benzodiazepines” to treat anxiety.
A Registered Nurse (RN) stated that the resident “should not have been left on the patio unsupervised [saying that] they should have had someone monitoring [the resident] at all times, and she was at a high risk for falls, has confusion, and poor safety awareness.” This deficient practice was confirmed by the Director of Nursing who stated that the resident “should not have been on the patio by herself” and should have been supervised. The Director of Nursing further noted that “the facility will likely place [the resident] on one-to-one supervision.”
