- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies That Prevent Mistreatment, Neglect or Abuse of Residents – citation #F226 date September 22, 2017
According to state investigators, “the facility did not ensure it implemented policies and procedures that prohibit and prevent abuse, neglect, and exploitation of residents.” One resident had been identified “for potential abuse. Specifically, [the resident’s] complaint voiced during a Resident Council Meeting was not reported to the Administration for investigation.”
A review of the Resident Council Meeting Minutes documented that a nurse screamed at a resident at night.” The investigators asked the Director of Nursing “for the investigation of this concern. She looked at the minutes and stated she did not know anything about it; this was the first time she had heard of it.”
The activity staff member who conducted the council meeting was interviewed and shown the minutes of the meeting. The “Activity Staff Member could not remember who stated that about the nurse. She was asked what happened after the statement was made and stated she thought she told her supervisor.” The staff member indicated that “she did not know who that was at the time, they have had three activities directors recently.”
The survey team interviewed a resident and asked, “if there was a nurse who yelled at her. She stated not that I know of. She was asked if she knew (the name of the nurse). She said that the name sounded familiar but could not say anything more.”
The investigators interviewed the facility Administrator, who stated “she was not aware of the Resident Council concern until yesterday. She stated that the “Activity Staff should have notified her or the Director of nursing immediately of the concern. She would have looked into it.”
The Administrator stated that “they did investigate the concern yesterday. She stated they did not have an Activity Director at the time. The Activity Director would or should have read the minutes and reported the concern. The Administrator stated that the activity staff holding the meeting should have reported the concern right away to Administration.”
