- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect, and Mistreatment – citation #F607 date June 20, 2019
- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date October 22, 2018
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to implement their policy related to abuse reporting for [one resident]. This failure had the potential to place the resident at risk for further abuse when an allegation of abuse was not reported immediately to the Abuse Coordinator, and the police were not notified.” Additionally, “reference checks were not completed for one employee [before] being hired.”
The resident was interviewed in his room on August 30, 2018, “sitting in a wheelchair, wearing a hospital gown, brief, and no shoes.” The resident stated that “two years ago, a couple of guys grabbed my balls.” The resident then said, “No, three guys hit my chest and my balls during a shower.” However, the resident “was unable to identify the persons involved.”
A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) stated that the resident “was agitated, but stated he wanted a shower. We put him in a shower chair and then lifted him into bed after. He accused us of beating him up.” A second CNA stated the resident “wanted a shower; so, we did [shower him], and then put him to bed. He accused us of rough handling.”
Both the CNAs “reported the accusation to a Licensed Nurse.” That nurse stated that “she did not report the incident [saying], ‘I forgot to tell (anyone) until the next shift.’” The Director of Nursing stated that the licensed nurse “should have reported the potential abuse right away. The police were not notified either and should have been.”
The facility “failed to answer a call light request for [one resident] with falls, who required walking assistance to the bathroom.” The nursing home also failed to investigate “the cause of the residents’ falls, they did not initiate any fall safety precautions, and did not implement resident-specific interventions for [three residents] with falls.”
As a result, one resident walked their self to the “bathroom, fell, and fractured her wrist.” The resident “suffered pain and became more dependent on staff for activities of daily living.” Three other residents “were at an increased risk for additional falls.”
