Accordius Health at Lexington
Mistreating senior citizens living in nursing homes is an unacceptable, reprehensible, and disgraceful action done by the hands of caregivers, visitors, and other patients. Many families relocate their loved ones into the nursing home believing that they will receive the highest level of care in a safe environment.

- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect and Mistreatment – citation #F607 date September 13, 2018
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to report an allegation of staff-to-resident abuse to the Administrator and the State Agency, within two hours of the allegation being made, and conduct a thorough investigation of the abuse allegation for [one resident].”
The state investigators interviewed the resident’s family member, who reported “an allegation of abuse when [the resident] told the family member she was slapped by a staff member.” The family member explained that they were told “by the facility that the facility had investigated the incident and the incident had not happened.” The family member “was not certain of the date of the allegation.”
A family member reported that the resident “was the roommate [of another roommate], and she had told him that a Nursing Assistant had slapped [the first resident. The family member explained] he had reported the allegation to the Unit Manager [and] was not certain of the date but felt that it happened in early July.”
The facility Administrator shared that “there were no allegations of abuse reported to him by the facility staff or management and no 24-hour/5-day [report] had been submitted by the facility.”
The Unit Manager reported that the resident alleged a Nursing Assistant “had slapped [him/her], and she reported the incident to the Director of Nursing. The Unit Manager was not certain of the date of the allegation.”
The Director of Nursing “explained the allegation of abuse was reported to her by the Unit Manager and [a family member]. The Director went on to explain that she had investigated the allegation by interviewing [the Nurse Aide, both residents involved, and the family member].”
The Director of Nursing reported “she had not completed or submitted a 24-hour or 5-day investigation report of the abuse allegation because both she and [the family member] were convinced the allegation had not happened.”
