The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to report or investigate an allegation of abuse [timely].” The investigation involved a cognitively intact resident who requires “limited assistance with personal hygiene and ambulates independently.”
The resident’s Care Plan identified the resident “with an altered thought process, with interventions that included to provide two staff with all care/conversations.” During an interview with the resident, it was revealed that another resident “threatened to beat him/her up.” The reporting resident stated that they told the nurse.
A Licensed Practical Nurse identified that the resident had “informed him/her that [another resident] threatened to beat him/her up.” The LPN further stated that the reporting resident “fabricates issues and relationships and stated that he/she addressed the issue.” The LPN “was unable to locate any documentation of the event and stated that he/she did not remember if he/she reported the allegation to the supervisor or Director of Nursing.”
The Director of Nursing identified that the LPN “was aware of the allegation of abuse and [the LPN] did not report the allegation when [the resident] informed him/her.” The Director stated that “the allegation should have been reported immediately.”
The nursing home facility “failed to maintain visual contact with the resident at all times while on a medical appointment, which resulted in the resident leaving the medical clinic unattended.” The investigation involved a resident with “no cognitive impairment, [who has] difficulty focusing attention, disorganized thinking, was easily distracted and exhibited behaviors of wandering that typically occur daily.” The resident was “independent with ambulating and received an antipsychotic medication daily.”
The Reportable Event Form dated August 9, 2018, identified that the resident “walked away from the Physician’s appointment, unattended.” The report identified that the resident “left the nursing facility with a Nurse Aide to go to a medical appointment and during the appointment, the resident needed to use the bathroom.”
The Nurse Aide “accompanied the resident to the bathroom and waited outside.” The Nurse Aide “heard the receptionist call out to her that she had left her purse at the desk.” When the Nurse Aide returned to the bathroom, the resident “was not inside.”
