Observations:


Based on facility provided documentation and interview it was determined that the facility failed to conduct the required second full scale exercise, or tabletop exercise of the facility's emergency preparedness plan. This applied to all the residents in the facility. Findings included:

Review of facility provided emergency management documentation was completed on August 2, 2019. This review revealed that a full scale exercise of the emergency preparedness plan was completed on November 30, 2018. Further review of the documentation failed to reveal that a second exercise, either a full scale drill or tabletop exercise was also completed within the previous 12 months.

Interview with the administrator of program compliance and the administrator of quality services on August 2, 2019, at 10:00 AM, confirmed that no second emergency preparedness plan exercise was completed by the facility within the previous 12 months.















Plan of Correction:

The Administrator of Quality Services along with the Safety Committee will create a schedule for disaster drills that will ensure that 2 drills occur no less than 4 months or greater than 8 months apart to ensure that 2 disaster drills occur annually. One of these drills will be a full scale drill with the other being either a table top or full scale drill. The Safety Committee will be part of the debriefing any time the Emergency Preparedness Plan is utilized regardless if it was a drill or not. Every 6 months, the Safety Committee will evaluate if a drill has been held in the last 6 months. This will be documented in the meeting minutes and will be listed on the agenda. The Administrator of Quality Services, serving as the Safety Committee chairperson, will be responsible for monitoring the corrective action.


Initial Comments:

[Each order for restraint or seclusion must include] the emergency safety intervention ordered, including the length of time for which the physician or other licensed practitioner permitted by the state and the facility to order restraint or seclusion authorized its use.


Observations:

Based on record reviews and interview it was determined that the facility failed to ensure that orders for restraints included a specific length of time permitted by the practitioner. This applied to three (#4, #5, #8) of ten residents in the survey sample. Findings included:

Record reviews were completed for Individuals #4, #5, and #8 on July 31, 2019. The records revealed that these individuals experienced restraints on the following dates:

Individual #4:
March 21, 2019, 2 restraints

Indiviudal #5:

July 7, 2019, 1 restraint
July 25, 2019, 1 restraint

Individual #8:

A review of physician's orders revealed that the nurse failed to document the specific length of time when receiving the orders for these restraints.

An interview was completed with the administrator of program compliance on August 1, 2019, at 10:50 AM. The administrator confirmed that the nurses failed to accurately document the specific lengths of times for the above listed restraints, when the order was obtained from the physician.

















Plan of Correction:

All Restrictive Procedure Order and Report forms that were identified as not having the length of the order documented will be corrected to include the length of the order. On August 13, 2019 the Nurse Manager communicated with all of the nursing staff that receive orders for restraints to remind them that the length of the restraint ordered by the doctor must be documented on the Restrictive Procedure Order and Report Form. These forms will be audited by the Nurse Manager weekly to ensure that all parts of the order are documented on the form prior to submission to the Medical Records Department. The Nurse Manager will be responsible for monitoring the corrective action.


483.370(a) STANDARD
POST INTERVENTION DEBRIEFINGS

Name - Component - 00
Within 24 hours after the use of the restraint or seclusion, staff involved in an emergency safety intervention and the resident must have a face-to-face discussion. This discussion must include all staff involved in the intervention except when the presence of a particular staff person may jeopardize the wellbeing of the resident. Other staff and the resident's parent(s) or legal guardian(s) may participate in the discussion when it is deemed appropriate by the facility. The facility must conduct such discussion in a language that is understood by the resident and by the resident's parent(s) or legal guardian(s).
The discussion must provide both the resident and staff the opportunity to discuss the circumstances resulting in the use of restraint or seclusion and strategies to be used by the staff, the resident, or others that could prevent the future use of restraint or seclusion.



Observations:

Based on record reviews and interview it was determined that the facility failed to ensure that all individual debriefings were completed within 24 hours. This applied to two (#8 and #10) of ten residents in the survey sample. Findings included:

1. A record review was completed for Individual #10 on August 1, 2019. This review revealed that Individual #10 was involved in two restraints on April 15, 2019, and the debriefings were completed on April 18, 2019. Individual #10 was involved in a restraint on April 20, 2019, and the individual debriefing was completed on April 24, 2019.

2. A record review was completed for Individual #8 on July 31, 2019. This review revealed that Individual #8 was involved in a restraint on February 20, 2019. There was no documentation indicating that Individual #8 had participated in a debriefing.

Interview with the administrator of quality services and the administrator of program compliance on August 1, 2019, at 10:30 AM confirmed that these debriefings for Individual #10 and #8 were not completed within 24 hours.







Plan of Correction:

For individual #8 that did not have documentation that a debriefing occurred following a restraint on February 20, 2019. Her therapist will conduct a debriefing during her individual therapy session the week of August 26, 2019. On August 7, 2019 the Director of Residential Services met with the Clinical Managers to reiterate that the Life Space Interview (debriefing) following a restrictive procedure can be completed up to 24 hours after its completion. If a resident refuses to participate in the first attempt to complete the Life Space Interview, additional attempts need to be made and documented. On August 15, 2019, this information was also communicated to all positions that can act as the Clinician on Call. This information will be communicated to all clinical staff during the unit staff meetings due to be held in September. Any child that refuses any attempts to complete a Life Space Interview during the shift that the restrictive procedure occurred will be included in the Clinician on Call Log as well as the Unit Shift Note to alert the staff on the next shift that attempts to conduct the Life Space Interview should be made and documented. The Clinical Manager reviews and signs off on all Restrictive Procedure Order and Report Forms weekly. The Clinical Manager will be responsible for monitoring the corrective action.
