- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date May 19, 2017
According to state investigators, “the facility did not ensure that all alleged violations involving mistreatment, neglect or abuse, including injuries of an unknown source, were thoroughly investigated.” One resident “reviewed for injuries of unknown origin lacked a complete investigation to include interviews and written statements of all staff that provided care to the resident twenty-four hours [before] the discovery of ecchymosis (purplish patch caused by blood under the skin) of the nose and elbow.”
The surveyors reviewed a Registered Nurse (RN) Nursing Note that revealed “the resident’s nose was discolored and cool to the touch. The resident was noted to have an oxygen mask on at the time.” The resident also had a deep purple area to the left elbow that was of an unknown origin. The nursing staff notified the Physician, who ordered x-rays that were negative for fractures. However, “the left elbow was found to have joint effusion (increased amount of fluid within the joint).”
The survey team reviewed the Incident Documentation to that revealed the “area on the resident’s elbow measured approximately 8.0 cm by 8.0 cm.” The nursing home obtained statements from the staff who provided care to the resident. However, “a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) that “was assigned to the resident on the evening shift [did not] provide a statement.” Also, “the statement from the CNA assigned to the resident on the day shift [was not] specific as to the care that was provided to the resident.”
In a separate summary statement dated September 29, 2016, the nursing home “did not ensure that all alleged violations of mistreatment, neglect, or abuse were thoroughly investigated.” One resident “reviewed for neglect had issues involving the lack of a thorough investigation, including interviews and written statements to determine the root cause of the fall from the sling during a mechanical lift transfer.”
The incident involved a severely, cognitively impaired resident who “requires a total mechanical lift with the assistance of two [staff members].” The Director of Nursing revealed “an incident that had occurred on March 20, 2016, at approximately 6:45 PM was identified as ‘resident neglect.’ The facility reported that the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) transferred the resident via a mechanical lift with the sling that was already under the resident in her chair,” placed there by another CNA.
