The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to report an allegation of sexual abuse for [a resident] to law enforcement or Aging and Disability Services Division [Adult Protective Services].”
A self-report dated March 28, 2017, documented that “a resident reported during a care conference that an employee had touched the resident’s genital area. The resident informed a Registered Nurse (RN) of the incident.”
The Risk Management “verified law enforcement or Aging and Disability Services Division was not notified of the allegations of sexual abuse.” The Manager also confirmed that “the allegation was [concerning] sexual abuse.”
A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) verified “if a resident alleged a staff member touched their genitals, [it] was an allegation of sexual abuse. The LPN explained that the Charge Nurse was notified, and the police or Aging and Disability Services Division would have been notified.”
The Director of Nursing verified the facility’s failure to notify appropriate agencies and the police of an allegation of sexual abuse, saying that the agencies “should have been notified.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure staff clarified Physician’s orders for wound treatment.” The investigation involved a resident whose records documented “an old dressing from the sacral area was removed, cleansed with water and soap, patted dry, then covered [with medication].”
However, “the resident’s clinical record lacked documented evidence [that] the Physician’s orders were clarified to indicate the sacral wound could have been covered with [a medicated dressing].”
The nursing home “failed to reposition a resident with a pressure ulcer.” The investigation involved a bedfast resident who “had a pressure ulcer on the coccyx area.” The resident indicated the need to be “turned every two hours but got repositioned only during incontinent care, which happened once or twice a day.”Need More Information about Boulder City Hospital Skilled Nursing Facility?
