- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date September 15, 2016
- Failure to Provide Appropriate Pressure Ulcer Care Prevent New Ulcers from Developing – citation #F686 date August 16, 2018
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure the allegation of abuse was reported to the appropriate authorities at the time of the incident.” The investigation involved a moderately cognitively impaired resident who “displayed no behaviors, requires extensive assistance of staff for bed mobility, transfers, toilet use, bathing, and the total assistance of staff for locomotion on and off the unit.”
The Reportable Event Form indicated that the resident had reported that “eighty dollars was missing from his bedside table. The report failed to provide evidence that the allegation had been reported to the State Agency [timely].” The Administrator confirmed that the resident had “reported money was missing from his/her bedside table in his/her room on May 21, 2016.”
The Administrator further identified that “the facility policy was to report all alleged violations to the State Agency immediately via phone and to mail or fax the State Agency within seventy-two hours.” The state investigators reviewed the reports to the State agencies to determine it was not reported until May 23, 2016, even though the incident had occurred two days earlier on May 21, 2016.
The “failure to ensure that interventions were implemented to prevent the redevelopment/recurrence of pressure ulcers.”
The investigation involved a resident who had “developed a facility-acquired Stage II pressure ulcer on September 18, 2018, located on the resident’s left medial buttock, and further identified that it was treated and healed/resolved on September 26, 2017.”
However, the resident’s quarterly MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment dated March 1, 2018, “identified the resident was severely cognitively impaired,” at risk for pressure ulcer development and “no healed pressure ulcer.” A Nursing Note dated three weeks later on March 21, 2018, identified the resident’s “old scabbed area to the coccyx/buttock reopened” and measured 4.0 cm x 1.6 cm.
