- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Mental Abuse, Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – Citation #S 600 Date May 30, 2018
- Failure to Immediately Notify the Resident’s Doctor or Family Member of a Change in the Resident’s Condition – citation #F580 date May 30, 2018
The nursing home “failed to ensure [a resident] was free from verbal abuse.” The incident involved a severely, cognitively impaired resident.
The Self-Reported Incident Form (SRI) documented that a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and a State-Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA) overheard a second CNA “yelling and swearing at [a resident]. The facility substantiated the allegation of verbal abuse and terminated [that CNAs] employment.”
Documentation shows that the verbally abusive CNA “yelled profane language toward the resident stated he could not stand her, and her fiancé was not there to hear her scream all the time.” Documentation shows that the reporting CNA had “reported the above to the Registered Nurse (RN) supervisor and was told a few weeks later in the had not been addressed.” The reporting CNA “then reported it to the Director of Nursing.”
The Registered Nurse Supervisor had told the allegedly verbally abusive CNA “about not using profane language around the resident but did not report it to the Director of Nursing.” The supervisor had said that “she did not recall it being a big deal; therefore, the Director of Nursing educated the staff not to be cursing on the floor or in resident’s rooms because this could be considered a form of verbal abuse.”
The Director of Nursing “did not report the allegation to the Administrator and did not report the allegation to the State agency” while allowing the verbally abusive CNA to continue working “at the facility until the investigation began.”
According to state investigators, “the facility failed to notify [the resident’s] Physician and the resident’s representative of a decline in a pressure ulcer.” The state investigators reviewed a close medical record of a resident who had expired at the nursing home.
The resident’s documentation showed “abnormalities including a failure to heal, maceration, etc.” that was not reported to the Physician. Also, there was no evidence that the family was notified of a decline in the resident’s health promptly as required by law.
Even though the documentation shows that there was a significant decline in the resident’s coccyx pressure ulcer “there was no change in treatment.” The Director of Nursing verified that the resident’s “representative and Physician were not notified timely of changes/decline in the resident’s pressure ulcer.”
