According to state surveyors, “the facility failed to complete a thorough investigation for allegations of resident abuse. This [failure to investigate abuse] was evident when the facility-reported incident was reviewed during the facility’s annual Medicare/Medicaid-participating survey.”
The reporting incident documentation shows that the resident “reported that an overnight staff [member] used verbally abusive language toward [them].” A review of the investigation revealed that any “abuse was unsubstantiated.”
According to the investigation, the nurse that was implicated by the resident who said “was verbally abusive toward [them] was not assigned to work with the resident that night on the 11-7 shift. Per the investigation and photo identification, when the nurse who was not assigned to the resident entered the room, [the resident] stated that is not the nurse.” Further review of the facility’s investigation “did not find interviews of other residents.”
The survey team interviewed the Director of Nursing, who stated that they “ask residents about abuse when [they] start working at the facility. However, there was no documentation of this provided with the investigation submitted to the survey team.”
The nursing home “failed to keep a resident free of accident hazards by not ensuring the resident’s bed was installed properly.”
The survey team observed the resident’s bed and interviewed the resident after noting the resident’s “bed frame was misaligned, causing the mattress to extend off both sides of the bed.” Further observation “revealed that the side rails were loose and a bolt on the bed frame that supported the upper portion of the bed was unsecured.”
The surveyors notified the Administrator thirty-nine minutes later. Immediately afterward, upon further observation, it was revealed that “the side rails were installed upside down.” The Administrator stated during an interview that “the resident’s bed was switched out in the original bed was scheduled for repairs.”
The facility “failed to follow infection control practices and guidelines while performing duties and caring for residents. The deficient practice has the potential to affect all residents in the facility.”
The investigators observed a Laundry Aide failing to follow established protocols to minimize the potential of spreading infection throughout the facility.
