- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date May 24, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to prevent the elopement of [one resident], including [a failure] to initiate and implement the resident’s Plan of Care for wandering risks by not assessing the signs and symptoms of changes in behavior like entering into another resident’s’ room without permission and increased anxiety.”
The nursing home also failed to “follow the facility’s policy and procedure on Elopement by [a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)] not reporting to the Charge Nurse or Licensed Vocational Nurse when [the resident told the CNA] that he really wants to leave the facility.” At 11:00 PM on March 23, 2019, the resident “eloped [wandered away] from the facility and spent the night on the street. These deficient practices affected [the resident’s] safety and placed the resident at risk for injury.”
A review of a Nurse’s Progress Note dated January 2, 2019, indicated that the resident “was transferred to another room because [the resident] was bullying and making offensive remarks to his roommate.” A subsequent Progress Note dated March 2, 2019, and others through March 20, 2019, indicated the resident “was alert, awake and oriented to time, self and place.”
A Psychological Consultation Note dated March 6, 2019, indicated that “the resident was frustrated with being physically impaired and having to stay at the facility.” At that point, the resident began “entering into other residents’ rooms without permission and having symptoms of anxiety.”
The staff last saw the resident on March 23, 2019, at 9:00 PM and noticed, “the resident missing from the facility at 11:00 PM.” The Investigation Report dated March 25, 2019, indicated that the resident “was unhappy and upset with his roommate.” The resident told the CNA that “he wanted to leave, but the CNA failed to report [it] to the Charge Nurse.”
The CNA stated that “she did not report [the resident’s statement] to the Charge Nurse because she did not believe [the resident, and stated that] she has not seen the resident walk. The resident was always in bed and in his wheelchair.”
The facility Administrator stated that the CNA “should have mentioned the conversation with [the resident] to the Charge Nurse so [the resident’s] elopement could be avoided.”
