Standard #: 22VAC40-73-40-A Complaint related: Yes Description: Based upon a review of policies and interviews, the facility failed to ensure compliance with the facility?s own policies and procedures.
Evidence: According to the Lincolnian Assisted Living Resident Guideline dated 12/2008 and given to residents upon admission: ?residents are given keys to their suites and any time a staff member enters a resident?s suite, the door will be locked when they leave.? Interviews with two of the four residents on 11/16/2022, revealed that residents do not have keys to their suites and that the doors to their rooms do not lock. An interview with the administrator on 11/16/2022 also confirmed that the residents do not have keys to their suites.
Plan of Correction: Updated resident guidelines were distributed to residents on 11/16/22, reflecting the fact that no keys are distributed to the residents and doors are not locked.
