VIOLATION: PATIENT RIGHTS Tag No: A0115
Based on interview, record and policy review the facility failed to:
-Provide care in a safe setting to ensure that one (#3) out of one current patient and two (#10 and #11) out of two discharged patient records reviewed for elopement did not successfully elope from facility property.
-Staff did not follow expected observation protocol/policy when they failed to transport one (#3) current patient back inside the building after being on the playground outside, which allowed him to climb over the fence and elope off facility property.
-To prevent one (#11) patient from climbing over the playground fence and elope off facility property.
-Include elopement prevention/interventions in the treatment plan for six patients (#3, #4, #5, #6, #7 and #8) out of six current patients reviewed for elopement risk and for two discharged patients (#10 and #11) of two discharged patients reviewed for elopement risk .
The facility census was 81. This had the potential to affect all patients seeking care at the facility.

The severity and cumulative effect of these systemic practices resulted in the overall non-compliance with 42 CFR 482.13 Condition of Participation: Patient's Rights

-The purpose of the policy is to provide guidelines to clinical staff to ensure a safe and secure environment through assessment, intervention, and treatment for those patients who are high risk for harm to self, harm to others or elopement.
-A line of sight (LOS) patient is to remain in line of sight of staff at all times, including bathroom and shower times, but does not have to be within arm's length. These patients are assigned to rooms close to the nurses' station to ensure continuous monitoring and will be restricted to the unit.
-Assign staff to document a narrative note once a shift for patients on line of sight which address progress or lack of progress towards the Multidisciplinary Treatment Plan (MTP) goals.
-Assign staff to document a narrative note on day and evening shifts for patients on 15 minute checks which address progress or lack of progress towards the MTP goals. Night shift is to monitor for any sleep or safety concerns and document as needed.

The patient arrived back to the facility in less than 30 minutes. The patient complained mainly of pain in her heels and up into her ankles.
