- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents- citation #F225 date September 21, 2017
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to report allegations of neglect to required State agencies [timely]." The facility "also failed to thoroughly investigate an allegation of neglect for [one resident]."
The "allegations of neglect involving [one resident] were not reported to the required State agency. The allegation of neglect regarding [the resident] was not thoroughly investigated."
A review of the facility's reportable incidents from the previous six months found that "on July 27, 2017, the resident's daughter voiced concerns about her mother still in her pajamas in the afternoon when she came in to visit on July 23, 2017." The daughter "voiced her concerns to the Social Services Supervisor four days later."
As a part of the facility-conducted investigation, witness statements were taken from six employees. Two of those employees indicated that "they did not provide care for [that resident] on that day."
One Nurse Aide said that "I did not get to do rounds as early as I wanted to. I changed her that morning around 9:00 AM, but she was not ready to get out of bed just yet. Then I had another resident that was throwing up, and I waited with her until the ambulance came to get her. By the time she left, it was lunchtime."
The Nurse Aide stated that "after lunch, I went to her room and her daughter was already there. I explained to her what happened."
The investigators interviewed the resident's daughter, who stated that she had been in the building that day around 1:30 PM. She noted that the resident "had told her that no one had been in to care for her that day. She said she took the mother into the bathroom, took her brief off, and the brief was soaked with urine. The urine was yellow in color and had a very foul odor."
A review of the Grievance/Complaint Form "did not indicate if or when [the incident] was reported to the Director of Nursing or Executive Director" by the Social Services Supervisor." Additionally, the facility "failed to report the allegations to the Office of Health Facility Licensure and Certification, Nurse Aide Registry, Adult Protective Services, and the ombudsman, as required by the facility's Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation policy."
