- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation date November 30, 2018
According to state investigators, “it was determined that [for one resident] the facility did not ensure that an allegation of abuse was reported to the Administrator.”
The surveyors reviewed a Nursing Progress Note dated October 15, 2018. The notation revealed that “the resident’s family took her out of the facility against medical advice and spoke to the Social Worker before they left. The Social Worker provided the surveyor with a copy of the face sheet that she had in her files. There was documentation on the back of the face sheet that included an undated entry that revealed a family complaint that was made.” The notation said that a “Night Aide grabbed the resident and other male Aides were in the room laughing and saying that ‘this is the last day you will live.’”
The surveyors interviewed the Social Worker, who said that “she did not recall speaking to the resident’s family. After reviewing the entry on the back of the face sheet, the Social Worker said she did not write a note or complete agreement because the resident left so fast, and she forgot.”
The Registered Nurse Minimum Data Set Coordinator stated that “she would expect that the allegation to be reported and investigated.” The Director of Nursing said that “she remembers the resident left against medical advice but remembers the family was upset because their mother had a problem with a large black woman.” The Director stated that “she was not the Director at the time and was not involved [and] did not know who investigated the incident.”
The facility Administrator stated that “she was not aware of the resident’s allegation until that day. She said she would have expected that the allegation be reported immediately.”
