- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date June 21, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure [two residents] remained free from accident hazards.” In one case, a resident “was at a high risk for falls, but the facility failed to ensure the resident was provided bilateral floor mats as ordered.”
In a separate incident, “the facility failed to ensure the Care Plan problem was revised to address [another resident] as a supervised smoker.” In this incident, the investigators interviewed the resident, who stated that “she was a smoker [and that] she and a family member kept her cigarettes and lighters.” The resident said that “she did not need any supervision when she smoked cigarettes.”
A review of that resident’s Care Plan identified the resident as “a smoker [who] requires no supervision with smoking. The interventions included [that the resident] would not have access to matches and lighters.” Additional documentation shows that the resident was noncompliant “with care because the resident refused to follow safety precautions and refused to follow the smoking policy.”
A family member verified that the resident “was independent to smoke [stating that] she was allowed to keep her cigarettes and lighters and would keep the cigarettes and lighters in her pocket [and that] she could smoke whenever she wanted.”
A Licensed Vocational Nurse stated that the resident “could smoke whenever she preferred and was supervised randomly [and] did not need anybody when she smoked but [the resident] will let the staff know when she went to the smoking area.” The Licensed Vocational Nurse stated that the resident “kept her own cigarettes and lighters.”
However, an interview with a Registered Nurse (RN) indicated that the resident “was assessed to be a supervised smoker.” The surveyors asked about the resident’s current Care Plan. The Registered Nurse stated that the resident’s “Care Plan showed the resident was an independent smoker [stating that] the Care Plan was not revised to address [the resident] as a supervised smoker.”
At that time, the resident was seen in her wheelchair, “holding a lighter.” The resident stated that “she was going to the smoking area to smoke.” Five minutes later, the surveyors interviewed the resident while smoking on the smoking patio. The resident “lit her cigarette by herself.”
