Information & Ratings on Cedarcrest Care Center, Broken Arrow, Oklahoma
Many of the problems associated with mistreatment occurring in assisted-living facilities in nursing homes are the result of a lack of trained personnel, minimal supervision or understaffing.

- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect, and Mistreatment – citation date August 1, 2018
According to state investigators, “the facility failed to develop and implement their abuse policies and procedures for an allegation of verbal abuse.” This failure “had the potential to affect all fifty-six residents who resided in the facility.”
The state surveyors noted that “during the Resident Council interview, [a resident] stated a Nurse Aide had spoken with a gruff tone when she had requested her bed to be prepared for her to go to bed.” The resident stated that “an Aide answered her call light and she requested her bed be made/prepared for her to go to bed.” The Aide turned off the call light, spoke to her in gruff tone and left the room without making her bed.”
The resident could not remember the name of the Aide but did know that the Aide continued to work at the facility. The resident stated that she had not reported the incident to anyone but that the “Aide was gruff and cranky.” The resident stated that “she did not feel she should be treated in a manner when she requested help from the staff.”
Later that afternoon, the surveyors notified the Administrator “of the allegation of verbal abuse.” Seven days later “the resident record was reviewed for an update regarding the allegation of verbal abuse that was reported on July 24, 2018. The record did not include an incident report.”
The surveyors asked the Administrator “for a copy of the incident report faxed to the Oklahoma State Department of Health.” The Administrator “stated that she had not completed an incident report and did not fax a copy to the state office. She had not substantiated the allegation.” The Administrator stated that “if she did not substantiate an allegation of abuse she was not required to send a report to the State” which does not follow established rules and regulations.
