Sandy Pines cited for not providing the proper level of supervision of residents

Sandy Pines was cited by the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) for deficiencies related to organization operating standards. AHCA found that the facility “failed to ensure support of high quality of care and treatment for 2 of 3 sampled residents.” AHCA found that “there was a [staffing] ratio of one staff person to four residents during the time period of 3:00 PM to 11:00 PM to supervise the residents.” Even though the “15 minute check off sheets” indicated that two residents were documented as being in the RTF’s Dayroom at 6:30 PM and 6:45 PM, Resident #1 and Resident #2 were actually in Resident’s #1 room together when there was an occurrence between the residents. In a staff interview, the Risk Manager “could not explain why staff did not properly supervise nor document the actual whereabouts of Resident #1 and #2.” In the plan of correction, the facility educated the direct care staff on the incident and re-educated them on “appropriate procedures for resident observation during hygiene time.”
