- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect, and Mistreatment – citation #F607 date April 17, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to implement its policies and procedures to ensure that all residents were protected from potential physical and psychosocial harm during a facility investigation of alleged employee abuse [involving one resident]. The facility did not remove [a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)] from duty after the resident made an allegation of physical abuse about the CNA. This deficient practice had the potential to subject other residents to physical and psychosocial harm pending the facility’s investigation.”
The facility’s investigation over the allegation of physical abuse was documented on February 1, 2019, when the resident said that the CNA “roughly moved the pillow during patient care and also stated that the [CNA] was rough during incontinent care.” A review of the resident’s Care Plan revealed the resident “was at risk for distressed/fluctuating mood symptoms related to an allegation of abuse while receiving care.”
The resident stated that the CNA “was rough, she pulled the pillow so fast, and it hurt. I just had surgery, you know?” The resident “was not sure of the CNA's name.” A Licensed Vocational Nurse stated, “he was in the middle of passing medications, and he heard [the resident] state, ‘you are too rough for me.’”
The state investigators interviewed the facility Administrator, who stated that they had not yet had a conversation with the resident but would have asked if the resident still felt safe after removing the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) from providing their care.
