- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date July 16, 2018
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to report allegations of abuse in required time frames for [two residents] when an allegation of staff-to-resident physical abuse occurred on May 10, 2018.” Additionally, a separate allegation of financial abuse occurred to a different resident on January 15, 2018. These “failures placed [both residents] at risk for continued abuse.”
In one incident, a resident’s departmental notes in clinical records from May 10, 2018, indicated the “resident brought to my attention multiple light red bruises to the bilateral arms” documented by a Licensed Nurse. Another clinical record shows that on the same day the resident stated a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) grabbed her arm “hard and the resident told the CNA to stop. The CNA was removed from the facility. Social services were notified of the report. The Director of Nursing completed an investigation section.”
The resident told investigators that the CNA “was trying to turn me on my side, and she grabbed my left wrist. When she grabbed my left wrist, I told her it hurts, and she grabbed my right wrist after I told her my left wrist hurts.” The CNA “gave me a dirty look when I told her that it hurt when she grabbed my wrists. I do not think it (grabbing the resident’s wrist) was done purposely, but it was not supposed to be done that way.”
The resident said that “there were discolorations on her left and right wrists after the incident, and the bruise was fading.” A “slight discoloration was visible on both wrists.”
The Director of Nursing stated that everyone at the facility is a mandated reporter and must report “any type of abuse. The Director stated that the times of abuse were fiduciary (financial abuse), psychological, verbal, physical, sexual, neglect, and involuntary isolation/abandonment.”
The Director verified that “yes, it is physical abuse when asked about the allegation between [the CNA and the resident]. The Director stated that the reporting should have been done within twenty-four hours after the incident was identified as possible abuse” but was not.
