- Failure to Not Hire Anyone with the Finding of Abuse, Neglect, Exploitation or Theft – citation #F606 date January 16, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to screen Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) for abuse by failing to verify certifications upon hire for 17 of 79 currently employed CNAs; and certification expiration, and by failing to run criminal background checks within thirty days of hire.”
The state investigative team did not obtain certification verification for seventeen employees that were currently working as Certified Nursing Assistants who “had expired certifications in their employee files.”
It was documented that the facility staff “failed to obtain certification verifications [before] hiring three [currently employed CNAs who were found to have pending violations against their certification and were providing direct care to residents.” Additionally, “the facility staff failed to obtain criminal background checks from the Virginia State Police within thirty days of hire for [two CNAs].”
The surveyors entered the facility “to investigate a two-day complaint. During the course of the investigation, an Immediate Jeopardy was identified, and a substandard review and expanded survey was initiated.”
The facility Administrator stated that the Human Resources Director “was responsible for verifying certifications” and to ensure that the “certification is current and in good standing.” It was documented that the “facility staff failed to [conduct] certification verifications” before hiring three Certified Nursing Assistants who were working with residents and providing care.
The Director of Nursing stated that “criminal background checks must be done [before] the applicant’s hire. The facility was reminded of their Abuse Policy that reads in part: “persons applying for employment with the center will be screened for a history of abuse, neglect, and exploitation, or misappropriation of resident property.” This screening will include “employment history, criminal background check, abuse check with the appropriate licensing board and registries [before] hire.”
