- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect, and Mistreatment – citation #F607 date April 9, 2019
- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date January 30, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to develop a policy protecting residents from abuse when [a resident] did not receive a psychiatric referral following aggression towards residents, according to Physician’s orders. This failure had the potential for abusive behavior to recur.” The investigation involved a resident who had “difficulty expressing self and understanding others” and “speaks little English.”
The resident’s Care Plan indicated the resident “has a history of agitation resulting in a disturbing milieu (background).” The nursing staff was guided to “reduce the frequency, intensity, and duration of agitation” that included a consultation with psychiatry after a referral for “unprovoked aggression and hitting other residents.”
A second resident was interviewed and questioned about an incident saying, “ya, I remember. The Nurse Practitioner saw the whole thing, ya, hit me hard. Ya, it hurt, hit my head and arm. It got red. She slapped me pretty good. It was sore. She did not want me to use the elevator.”
A licensed nurse stated that the injured resident had been in a wheelchair heading toward the elevators when the aggressive resident, walking at the nurse’s station, hit the injured resident “on the head and arm. The Nurse Practitioner also saw it.”
The facility “failed to ensure the safety of [one resident, when that resident] fell from her bed unattended. This failure resulted in a fall with [injuries to the] distal humerus, and [the resident] was transferred to the Acute Care Hospital for treatment.”
The investigative team interviewed the resident who had stated that the call light was unusable because it always fell to the floor. The resident reported they were “unable to get help when [needed] due to the broken call bell. The resident said [that at the time of the incident] she needed help to go to the restroom.”
