- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date August 25, 2016
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to report and investigate an allegation of abuse for [one resident] in a survey sample.” Specifically, “the facility staff failed to report [the resident’s] allegation of abuse.” As a result, “this allegation was not reported to the appropriate State agencies and was not investigated.”
A review of the resident’s clinical records revealed Nurse’s Notes indicating that the resident had become agitated and insisted that their brief was dirty and needed changing. The Nurse’s Notes indicate that any attempt to change the resident’s brief was futile.
The notes indicate that the resident attempt to get out of bed on their own and sounded the alarm. The nursing staff transferred the resident with assistance to the recliner and that the resident “keeps trying to get up and slide out after ten or fifteen minutes” stating that they want to go back to bed. The resident is indicating that “everyone is so mean to her.”
The following day, the resident insisted that they were being hit and that the staff should attempt to get the resident up. The Nurse’s Notes indicate that the resident “was not hit.”
The state investigators interviewed a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) who stated that “she would immediately report an allegation of abuse to her supervisor.” That same day, a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) stated during an interview that “she would write a report [if there was an allegation of a resident being hit] and complete a total head to toe assessment and talk with the resident and let the Director of Nursing, Administrator, family, and Physician know about the allegation.”
The Director of Nursing and Administrator stated that they were “not made aware of the above abuse allegation.” It was noted that “staff is supposed to report allegations of abuse so that the administrative staff can investigate the allegations, fill out a Facility Reported Incident and report the allegation to the State agency” as required by law.
