- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date August 2, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home failed to ensure to residents “were provided adequate supervision to prevent episodes of elopement (leaving) from the facility.” The “sliding doors to the activity room had no secure lock in place when there was no staff available for supervision.”
For one resident, “who had a wander guard bracelet, there was no documentation that the function of the wander guard door alarm system was done (checked).” For this resident and another resident, “there was no documentation indicating that visual checks were done to prevent an elopement episode. These deficient practices resulted in [both residents] successfully eloping from the facility.”
The facility’s Director of Nursing stated that “wander guard bracelets on the residents are checked for placement andfunction every shift and documented on the Medication Administration Record (MAR).” The Director also stated that during the first resident’s elopement, the resident, “removed his wander guard bracelet and left the facility. For the second elopement episode, [the same resident] opened the sliding doors in the activity room and left the facility.”
The Activities Director verified that “the sliding doors for the activity room were not secured with the key. The lock on the sliding doors consists of a manual latch.”
A Progress Note dated March 12, 2019, at 8:45 AM indicated that the first resident “had left the facility and the local police department was called to report a missing person.” That resident was returned to the facility at 1:40 AM “accompanied by two police officers.” The Director of Nursing verified that this resident’s “Care Plan for monitoring whereabouts was not documented to prevent an elopement.”
An interview with a Licensed Vocational Nurse indicated that “he became aware that [the second resident] was nowhere to be found in the facility.” The Director of Nursing verified that the second resident’s “Care Plan for visual checks was not documented to prevent an elopement.”
