- Failure to Ensure That Every Resident Is Free from the Use of Physical Restraints Unless Need for Medical Treatment – citation #F604 date January 14, 2019
The state investigators determined “the facility did not ensure the resident was assessed to determine whether physical restraints were indicated to treat a medical symptoms [before] implementing the use of hand mitts.” Specifically, for one resident, “the facility did not identify the use of hand mitts as a restraint and subsequently did not implement their process for the use of restraints.”
This process “included an appropriate assessment, attempts at the use of the least restrictive measures, the documentation of medical symptoms, Physician’s orders, the development of a Care Plan and ongoing reevaluation.” The investigation involved a severely, cognitively impaired resident who “was rarely understood.” The resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment documented that “the resident was without behaviors and was totally dependent for activities of daily living.”
The survey team reviewed the document title Restraints Review that noted “the device being evaluated to be utilized with hand mitts. The restraints review did not document reduction attempt, alternativesused with a result, or that Physician’s orders were received.” A team member signed the document on two occasions on August 3, 2018, and November 27, 2018.
The surveyors observed the resident on January 7, 2018, just after noon while “being fed lunch by the staff in the dining room. The resident had hand mitts in place.” The following day at 3:39 PM, the resident “was sleeping in her room with hand mitts in place. The activities note dated August 14, 2018, documented that the resident often holds a stuffed animal.”
A review of the Physician’s orders dated January 10, 2019, “did not include orders for hand mitts or restraints. The medical record did not include a Care Plan for restraint use.” During an interview with a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), it was revealed that “the resident’s mitts were not removed on a regular basis.”
