- Failure to Ensure That Every Resident Is Free from the Use of Physical Restraints Unless Need for Medical Treatment – citation #F604 date March 23, 2018
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure appropriate indication and evaluation [before the] use of physical restraints (a medical device, material, or equipment attached or adjacent to the resident’s body which restricts freedom of movement or normal access to one’s body).”
The surveyors determined that “this failed practice had the potential to result in injury and restricting the resident’s freedom of movement.” A review of the resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment failed to indicate that the resident “was on any restraints. There was no physician’s order or assessment for the use of a lap tray.”
The MDS Nurse reviewed the resident’s records and stated that “she was unable to find any assessment or physician’s orders for the use of a [restraint].” The Assistant Director of Nursing further stated that “if the lap tray was used as a restraint, then it needed a physician’s order and if it was not use as a restraint, it did not need a physician’s order.”
A Licensed Vocational Nurse stated that the resident “has had a lap tray and had been using it while sitting on his Geri chair (geriatric chair or medical recliner, large padded reclining chair).” The MDS coordinator stated that “the resident should have been evaluated by the rehab department for the use of the device [and said that] an evaluation of the resident should have been done by the interdisciplinary team.”
The facility Director of Nursing said that “any possible devices residents use are to be assessed and documented in the resident’s records.” The surveyors, in the presence of the Assistant Director of Nursing, observed the resident “sitting in his Geri chair with a lap tray.” The resident “was asked to remove the lap tray.” The resident “used his right hand [and] was not able to remove the lap tray.”
At that time, the Assistant Director “removed the lap tray and stated there were knobs on both sides of the Geri chair that locked the lap tray. The Assistant Director turned the lap tray and five holes on each side were noted, which were used to lock the lap tray in the Geri chair. The Assistant Director stated the lap tray was considered a restraint as [the resident] was unable to remove it.”
