- Failure to Keep Every Resident Free from Physical Restraints Unless Need for Medical Treatment – citation #F221 date July 27, 2017
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to follow its policy and the Physician’s orders and implement a resident’s Plan of Care, which included assessment and monitoring for the use of a right wrist restraint for [one resident].” The resident “was observed [with a “right wrist improperly restrained, with the arm slightly bent and extended above her head, tied down under the bed in between the side rail, restricting movement and proper blood flow.”
The state investigators determined that “this deficient practice resulted in [the resident] being improperly restrained, causing pain and a red bruise about one-half inch wide around the resident’s entire right wrist caused by a tight wrist restraint, which could potentially cause joint, muscle, and nerve damage.”
The state investigators reviewed the resident’s Informed Consent for the Use of Restraints or Prolonged Use. The form indicates that a family member “had verbally consented for the use of soft wrist restraints, but the form was not signed by [the family member].”
The indication “for the use of a soft restraint was documented for confusion manifested by pulling out lines.” The resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment indicated the resident “had impairment on both sides of the upper and lower extremities.” The document stated, “physical restraints including limit restraints were used daily while in bed and a wheelchair.”
While the resident had a Physician’s order for the physical restraints to use a soft right wrist restraint, “there was no documented reason, functional deficit, or any related [diagnoses]” for the use of the restraints. The “order indicated to release the restraint and check for redness, circulation, hydration, nutritional or elimination needs, hygiene, and safety every two hours.”
The resident was observed at 10:52 AM lying “on her back with her right arm restrained, slightly bent and extended above her head and tied down underneath the bed in between the side rail while the resident was trying to move her arm. The resident was attempting to move her arm around but was unable to do so.” The resident stated that “she was placed in the restraints so she would not hurt herself.”
