- Failure to Keep Every Resident Free from Physical Restraints Unless Need for Medical Treatment – citation #F221 date October 5, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to obtain a Physician’s order with parameters for release and failed to apply restraint to treat a medical reason.” The nursing home “also failed to have a reduction plan in place for the use of restraint for [two residents].”
The state investigators reviewed the resident’s Physician Order Sheet that ordered a “self-releasing belt in a wheelchair as needed for repositioning.” The resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment documented under restraints “to use a trunk restraint daily.”
The investigators observed the resident “seated in a high back wheelchair in the hallway outside [their room]. A buckled, soft waist restraint was secured around [the resident’s] waist, with the ends knotted behind [the resident’s] chair. At that time, when requested by [a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), the resident] was unable to unbuckle restraints and remove it.”
The Care Pain Coordinator verified that the resident “did not have a Physician’s order with parameters for release, a medical reason to justify the use of physical restraints or a reduction plan in place for [the resident’s] restraints.”
In a separate summary statement of deficiencies, the facility “failed to identify an enclosed wheeled walker as a restraint for [one resident] and the use of the bed against the wall and a body pillow under the fitted sheet as a restraint for [another resident].”
The survey team observed the resident lying in bed with “the bed against the wall on the left side and a body pillow under the fitted sheet on the right side.” The following morning, the same resident “was lying in bed with the same pillow set up, acting as a restraint.”
A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) stated that “the body pillow and bed against the wall are to prevent [the resident] from falling out of bed because [the resident] is very fidgety.” However, the Director of Nursing confirmed that the resident “is not able to remove the body pillow.”
