- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date June 11, 2019

The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to notify the State Agency regarding a resident alleging physical mistreatment, within mandated time frames.” The investigation involved a resident with “a potential to demonstrate aggressive behavior verbally and physically toward staff, and accusatory behavior stating, ‘do not hit me,’ constantly, yelling out at times.”
A Registered Nurse was informed that upon visiting a resident, the resident stated: “you hurt me, no, do not hit me,” and “that the expectation was to follow facility protocols when a verbal allegation of this type was made.”
The facility Director of Nursing Services stated, during an interview, that they “could not recall any allegations of mistreatment made toward a member of the survey team nor was she able to determine from her own ongoing personal notes that an allegation of mistreatment was reported.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure the Registered Nurse (RN) was informed of a change in the resident’s condition, at the time identified, to ensure a complete assessment had been conducted [before] transferring the resident out of bed.”
A Nurse’s Note identified that a Nurse Aide assigned to the resident reported to a Charge Nurse, a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), that they discovered “a nickel-sized discoloration to the resident’s left temporal area and discoloration of the resident’s right hand and left elbow.”
A subsequent Nurse’s Note indicated that a Charge Nurse asked the Nursing Supervisor, a Registered Nurse, “five hours after the initial findings of the areas to assess [the resident] due to discoloration, and the Nurse Aide also reported the left hip was swollen.” The resident was transferred to the emergency department.
