- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date November 7, 2018
- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date January 4, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to report an alleged violation related to abuse to the Administrator at the facility and the State Survey Agency (California Department of Public Health (CDPH) no later than twenty-four hours.”
Specifically, a resident “verbalized to the Physical Therapist Assistant that someone jerked her leg that could possibly cause pain on her surgical site. This failure had the potential to result in the delay and the protection of [the resident], investigation of the incident, and implementation of action plans.”
A review of the resident’s Physical Therapy Notes indicated that the resident “is experiencing a high pain level rated eight out of ten of the right groin.” The document states “the person that helped me get back to bed jerked my leg.” The Physical Therapist Assistant said that the resident “usually complained of pain with her therapy but was able to tolerate the pain and participated in her therapy when [she was taking] her pain medication.”
The therapist said that at a later date, the resident “was in severe pain and the resident was not able to tolerate her therapy, [saying that the resident] told her the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) from the night shift jerked the resident’s right leg when the resident was being transferred to the bed.”
The facility “failed to provide adequate supervision to prevent [a resident] from having a fall incident, when the assigned sitter (a caregiver that provides close observation of patients) left [the resident] by himself in the room. This failure resulted in [the resident] having a fall incident.” The state investigators conducted an unannounced visit to the facility “related to the facility-reported incident of a fall.”
The Director of Nursing stated that the resident “was provided a 24-hour sitter for close supervision to prevent the resident from having a fall incident.” However, when the resident was by himself, he “tried walking toward his wheelchair in the room using a walker and fell.”
