- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation date August 17, 2018
According to investigators, “the facility failed to provide necessary staff supervision to maintain an environment free of potential accident hazards.” The investigation involved two residents “who smoked. The facility also failed to maintain an environment free of potential accident hazards on one of three nursing units (second floor).”
In one incident, a severly, cognitively impaired resident’s Smoking Assessment revealed that “the resident was safe to smoke unsupervised and she was provided two cigarettes at a time, but no lighter.”
Documentation at the facility submitted by the nursing home indicated that the resident “had been out in the courtyard and caught her pants on fire. The report indicated that when the resident was asked what happened, she stated she wanted to get rid of the string at the foot of her pants and asked another resident if she could borrow his lighter.”
The resident “then lit the hem of her jeans on fire. A family member told a dietary employee that the resident’s pants were on fire. The employee ran out to the Courtyard while notifying clinical staff.” At that time, the resident “had already put out the fire with the cold cup of water.”
In a separate incident involving another resident, it was revealed that that resident “was assessed to be able to smoke unsupervised, but his oxygen was to be turned off [before] smoking.” However, an employee at the facility stated that “the resident is noncompliant; was requesting that his oxygen be turned off [before] smoking.”
A Nursing Note indicated that a report was made that the “resident was smoking in the hallway. The supervisor was made aware.” When the employee went to the hallway where the resident was seated, they observed “the resident putting a cigarette out. The area was observed [to be] smoke-filled.”
