- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation date March 25, 2019
According to state investigators, the facility “did not ensure allegations of abuse were reported within two hours after the allegation was made for [one resident] reviewed for sexual abuse.” Specifically, the facility did not report an allegation of resident-to-resident sexual abuse to the State Survey Agency within two hours after it was reported to the Administrator.”
According to documentation, the incident occurred on February 10, 2019, and was not reported to the State Survey Agency until two days later. The incident involved a severely, cognitively impaired resident. A Nurse’s Note documented on the day of the incident at 8:46 PM was written by a Registered Nurse (RN) Manager who stated that the residents “were immediately separated, and no injury was noted to the victim.”
The resident “seemed to be unaffected as his mood did not change. The Administrator on-call and the resident’s wife were notified.” A subsequent Nurse’s Note documented at 9:45 PM was written by a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). That document stated that “she was walking in the hallway at approximately 8:00 PM, when she noticed [a female resident with her hand in another resident’s pants] and her left leg over his left leg in the activity room. She immediately separated them and reported the incident to the Registered Nurse (RN) and the other LPN.”
Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation date November 30, 2018
The nursing home “did not ensure that residents receive adequate supervision to prevent accidents.” Specifically, for one resident, “the facility did not ensure that all staff is educated on what ‘keep safe’ meant.” The nursing home failed because “the resident was unsupervised when exhibiting unsafe behaviors, that resulted in an unwitnessed fall causing a 2.0 cm laceration to the back of her head requiring eight staples to close and that one-on-one [supervision] was added to the resident’s Comprehensive Care Plan when exhibiting these behaviors.”
Additionally, “the facility did not ensure that [one resident] was provided plastic silverware as Care Plan for safety reasons.” This failure was evidenced when “the facility did not ensure that all staff is educated on what ‘keep safe’ meant, that the resident was unsupervised when exhibiting unsafe behaviors that resulted in an unwitnessed fall.”
