- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date August 29, 2018
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to provide a safe environment and sufficient supervision to outside patios and around the building, which had [thirteen] ambulatory (able to walk) cognitively (a mental process of acquiring knowledge and understanding) impaired (damaged) residents.” As a result, the state investigators made an unannounced visit to the facility “to investigate a complaint regarding quality of care.”
The Director of Nursing indicated that there were twenty-nine residents in the facility that were independently ambulatory and another sixty-two residents who “were ambulatory with assistance or assistive devices.” Additionally, there were sixty-three residents who “had documented psychiatric (mental illness) and ninety-eight residents with dementia.”
The state investigators conducted an initial tour at the facility and interviewed a Registered Nurse (RN) during the observation. At that time, “three residents at the side of the building [were] close to the Medical Records Office (on the right), and six residents [were] at the back of the patio, and two residents at the side of the building [were] close to the parking lot (left) and no staff was present.”
During the tour, the facility “had nine unlocked double doors around the building where residents went in and out from the resident care areas. Five doors at the left side of the building, one door at the back, and three doors at the right side of the building” were accessible to all residents.
The “right side of the building had an enclosed storage room across from the Medical Records Office which was accessible to the residents. The storage room had metal grills on one side, half of a fence on [another] side approximately 3 to 4 feet tall, and two signs were enclosed with walls. The storage room contained stacks of several boxes, a filing cabinet, activity materials, loose plastic and metal items, and a helium tank.”
The Registered Nurse stated that “residents went in and out from the resident care areas through several double doors around the building [and said that] staff made the rounds every hour to check [on] the residents in the patio.”
