- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date August 2, 2018
According to state surveyors, “the facility failed to provide supervision to prevent accidents for [one resident] who was at high risk for falls and wandered and was randomly observed in a potentially hazardous situation.” The facility “identified twenty-four residents with falls in the last three months.”
The survey team reviewed the severely, cognitively impaired resident’s Fall Risk Assessment dated May 31, 2018, that shows the resident “should be considered at HIGH RISK for potential falls. A prevention protocol should be initiated immediately and documented on the care plan.”
However, the state surveyors observed the facility’s morning meetings where the department heads and other facility staff “were in the Administrator’s office. The Charge Nurse and Certified Medication Aides were noted on the hall to the left of the dining room, standing at the medication cart and reviewing a book. No Aides were noted to be present on any of the halls.”
One minute later, surveyors observed the resident “alone in the hall to the right of the dining room. The resident was standing up in front of the laundry room door, with her hands flat on the laundry room door. The resident’s wheelchair was approximately twelve feet away from her [and] no staff was observed within eyesight of the resident.”
The surveyor saw the resident “take steps down the hall toward the nurse’s station. She kept her hands on the doors and walls as she proceeded down the hall. The resident was unsteady on her feet and short of breath. The surveyor called for assistance, but none came.”
Two minutes later, “another surveyor came within eyesight of the first surveyor and resident. The first surveyor called for assistance. The second surveyor brought the resident’s wheelchair to her, and the surveyors guided the resident into her wheelchair.” As the “surveyors finished guiding the resident into her wheelchair, [a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)] entered the hallway. She was asked if the resident was a wanderer. She stated, ‘Yes.’”
The CNA stated that the resident was not supposed to be supervised saying “I do not know what that means. She is able to go around the facility like she wants to.” A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) was asked “if the resident was a wanderer. He stated, ‘I guess you would say she is.’” The LPN verified that the resident was at high risk for falls and “would occasionally tend to [wander] but not often.”
