- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date August 31, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to report alleged abuse for [two residents].” The investigation involved a resident with a Brief Interview for Mental Status (BIMS) score of 00, indicating “severe impairment.”
This resident required “limited assistance for bed mobility, transfers, walking, and dressing, and extensive assistance for toileting. [The resident] had not exhibited any behaviors.” The resident was receiving medication for a delusional disorder, and the staff was instructed to “monitor behaviors for hallucinations/paranoia delusions.”
A Progress Note dated June 13, 2018, indicated that the resident “was standing at the nurse’s station taking off clothing, [and] the staff attempted to assist [in redressing] [the resident] multiple times. The staff was unable to redirect.”
Fifteen days later, on June 28, 2018, at 4:40 AM, “[the resident] was in the dayroom when he pulled off his pants and started masturbating in front of [a female resident] who was also sitting in the dayroom. [The resident] then proceeded to touch the female resident (who was fully clothed) on the crotch.”
The staff members immediately stopped the aggressive resident and took him to the bathroom “to put his pants back on. When brought back to the day room, [the resident] was separated from [the female resident] and placed on the other side of the dayroom. However, [the resident] attempted to approach [the female resident] again and was then taken to the dining room to prevent any further incidences.”
On June 3, 2018, in the evening, “[the resident] was observed ambulating in the unit and going to other residents’ rooms and voiding in the trash cans. [The resident] was redirected.” A few weeks later, the nursing staff notified the resident’s wife that the resident “was in the room with [another female] and he was lying in bed with his pants off.”
The male resident had “pulled [the female resident’s] blouse off.” The resident’s wife stated that “[the resident] had not had this behavior before.”
