- Failure to Keep Every Resident Free from Physical Restraints Unless Need for Medical Treatment – citation #F221 date January 13, 2017
The state investigators determined the nursing home "did not follow their policy and procedure for physical restraints for [one resident, who] was tied to his wheelchair to prevent him from falling. This failure created the potential for serious injury to the resident.” The resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment indicated that the severely impaired resident “needed extensive assistance for his activities of daily living, except for eating.” The assessment “also indicated a physical restraint was not used for [the resident].”
The state investigators observed the resident while “alert, but confused, try to stand up and only saying the words repeatedly ‘thank you, mom.’” An unlicensed staff member stated that “she came to work around 5:00 AM on December 24, 2016 and saw [the resident] tied to his wheelchair with a white bedsheet around his body, which was tied to the back of his wheelchair.”
The staff member stated that “she did not know how long the bedsheet had been tied to [the resident].” Another unlicensed staff member indicated that when she came to work on the night shift on December 23, 2016 “she had forty-seven residents to take care of.” The staff member stated that the resident “was one of her residents on that night. The resident was very confused and trying to get out of bed.”
The staff member stated that the resident “had already fallen twice during their shift, so she placed [the resident] in his wheelchair and put them in front of the nurse’s station.” A third staff member “came around and wrapped him in a bedsheet, which she tied to the back of the resident’s wheelchair.” The night shift staff left the resident’s body still wrapped in the bedsheet after leaving their shift.
The second night shift staff member stated that “they did not have enough staff to take care of [the resident] who was quick on standing up.” A review of the facility’s policy and procedure titled: Physical Restraints from November 2006 indicates that “residents receive care and services necessary to improve the quality of life, promote independence, and maintain functional capacity in an environment that prohibits the use of physical restraints unless it is unavoidable [and] necessitated by medical symptoms.”
