- Failure to Develop and Implement Policies and Procedures to Prevent Abuse, Neglect and Mistreatment – citation #F607 date December 18, 2018
- Failure to Respond Appropriately to All Alleged Violations – citation #F610 date December 18, 2018
According to state investigators, “the facility failed to effectively implement their abuse policy and procedure that ensure an injury of unknown origin was thoroughly investigated for [a resident].”
The investigators reviewed a self-reported incident when a resident “complained of left pain and was sent to the hospital.” The resident “reported that he was dropped to the floor by two people yelling. A review of the Hospital History and Physical dated December 8, 2018, indicated [that the resident] had severe physical debility with contracted lower extremities. The resident had x-rays completed of the pelvis and femur appearing comminuted left femoral metaphysis [irregular] bone.”
A witness statement documented by a State-Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA) revealed that while doing her initial safety rounds, she found the resident “had not had his dinner. When she asked him why he had not eaten, the resident complained of his head and knee hurting.” The STNA “pulled back a blanket and noted [the resident’s] left leg was in bad shape.”
At that time, the resident “reported that a man and woman rolled him and dropped him.” The STNA “immediately informed the Charge Nurse.” The documentation shows that “the facility was able to determine how the fracture occurred and whether it was a pathologic fracture.”
The state investigators interviewed the Administrator who indicated that “she had no witness statements or interviews from the STNAs caring for [the resident during that time] just [before] the resident complained of pain to the left leg.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure a fracture, presenting as an injury of unknown origin for [one resident] was thoroughly investigated as an incident of abuse.”
The failure from the nursing home to take action violated their procedures and policies including their Abuse Prevention Program that indicated “for all alleged or suspected cases of mistreatment, neglect, injuries of unknown source or abuse reported, the facility Administrator, Director of Nursing, or individuals designated will immediately report the allegation.”
