- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date April 27, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to identify an alleged violation involving abuse for [one resident].” The state investigative team interviewed a volunteer at the facility who stated, “she was visiting [the resident] in her room.”
The volunteer “reported that [the resident] is always pleasant and never angry, but this time was very angry. The volunteer asked [the resident] who she was angry at, and [the resident] indicated [a staff member] had yelled at her.”
The volunteer stated that they were standing in the resident’s room and could hear the staff member yelling out in the hallway before walking into the resident’s room while yelling. The staff member told the volunteer, “you need to get out of here because I need to get her up.”
The volunteer stated that the staff member then “roughly pushed [the resident] on her right side.” In response, the resident called the staff member a vulgar name. At that time, the staff member said, “what did you call me? and [the resident] repeated it.” The volunteer stated that the staff member then “roughly pulled [the resident] back down on her side and said, ‘I am not doing anything for you now.’”
It was described that the staff member then told the volunteer, “you need to get [a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)].” The volunteer did not know who that was. The staff member then left the resident’s room.
The volunteer then said that they had gone to the facility Administrator ten minutes later to report the incident. The volunteer stated that the Administrator said that “he and the [Director of Nursing] would talk to [the resident] and [the staff member].”
The surveyors interviewed the volunteer who stated that the Administrator “had stopped her in the hall after speaking with [the surveyor] and [the volunteer] reported to [the Administrator] that she had spoken with [the state surveyor] regarding the rough treatment of [the resident].”
The Administrator stated, “I don’t need you doing that.”
