- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect, and Mistreatment – citation #F607 date January 16, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to follow their abuse policy to immediately report an allegation of sexual abuse.” The investigation involved one severely, cognitively impaired resident who “requires total assistance with his activities of daily living.”
A review of a self-reported incident dated January 4, 2019, revealed that “a State-Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA) alleged a possible sexual abuse that occurred on December 29, 2018, during resident care.” This STNA was present during the incident that occurred that day and “did not report the allegation until January 4, 2019.”
The STNA stated that another STNA “was straddling and tickling [a resident] while [the resident] was in bed.” The Director of Nursing verified that the STNA making the allegation “did not report the allegation of possible sexual abuse that occurred on December 29, 2018” until six days later.
She stated she felt the inappropriate actions of the STNA “was unprofessional when she straddled [the resident] during care and was tickling [a resident] to get him awake.” The reporting STNA “was not sure if it was abuse or not.”
The Director of Nursing stated that “she felt the straddling of [the resident’s] body made it possible sexual abuse, and she filed the self-reported incident immediately.” The Director also verified that “she educated [the reporting STNA] to report anything of a potential abuse right when it happens.”
In a separate summary statement of deficiencies dated December 20, 2017, the facility “failed to follow their policy to report to the State Survey Agency a resident-to-resident altercation.” The report revealed that both residents “were in the front living room.” One resident “took her handbook and smacked the legs of [the other resident]. [The residents] were separated without further altercations.”
Even though no evidence was found of injury to the assaulted resident, “there was no evidence this incident was reported to the State Survey Agency” as required by law.
The Director of Nursing revealed that “she investigated the altercation between [the residents] and did not feel it was willful. Therefore, she did not report the incident to the State Survey Agency.”
