- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date November 19, 2018
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to report the inappropriate resident-to-resident contact or allegations of mistreatment to the administration or State Agency timely.” This investigation involved a severely cognitively impaired resident who “requires extensive assistance with activities of daily living.”
The resident’s Care Plan identified the resident as having “behavior problems of physical and verbal abuse [as evidence] by grabbing another resident and shaking the resident hard, several times. Interventions directed to intervene as needed to protect the rights and safety of others, approach in a calm manner, divert attention, remove from the situation, and take to another location as needed.”
A Nurse’s Note dated March 16, 2018, at 10:30 PM, identified that a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) had been called into a resident’s room by a Nurse Aide. When entering, the LPN found the resident “on the bed, naked, on top of his/her roommate.” The sexually aggressive resident was on top of the other resident and “supporting him/herself upon his/her knees and right elbow.”
The aggressive resident’s “left hand was on his/her own genitals.” The aggressive resident “was instructed to remove him/herself from [the other resident’s] bed [and was] placed at the nursing station.” However, the nursing staff and administration failed to report the incident to the State Agency until “three days after the event.”
A Registered Nurse (RN) stated that they had received a call from the RN on duty about the incident and indicated that the aggressive resident “was fully clothed on top of the sheets.” Based on that information, they directed the Registered Nurse on duty that “no further action was required and therefore did not direct [the RN] to report the incident to the State Agency.”
However, a review of the facility’s Abuse Prevention Policy and Procedure identified that “all alleged violations involving mistreatment, neglect, or abuse including injuries of unknown source will be reported immediately to the Administrator and other officials [according to] State laws.”
