The incident occurred about 2-2.5 months ago.

The nursing home “failed to report allegations of abuse and neglect [promptly] to the State Department of Health” involving two residents reviewed for abuse.” The nursing home “also failed to thoroughly investigate an allegation of neglect for [another resident].”
The investigators interviewed a resident who answered yes to the question “has staff, resident or anyone else here abuse you [involving] verbal, physical or sexual abuse?” The resident responded that “during the night shift six weeks [before], he put his call light on to be assisted with incontinence care. The call light was not answered for several hours, and when an aide finally came in, the eight indicated he can wait until the morning to be cleaned up.”
The resident indicated that he had told the “previous Director of Nursing services about the incident.” The surveyors reviewed filed investigative reports including an incident report for the resident had stated “the night shift did not change him and told him the day shift could do it. The resident could not recall why that was.”
