- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date February 26, 2016
According to state investigators, “it was determined that for two residents reviewed for abuse, the facility did not complete a thorough investigation to rule out possible abuse, neglect or mistreatment. This [failure] is a repeat deficiency from the abbreviated survey of August 3, 2015.”
The issues “included incomplete investigations regarding the cause [of injuries involving a resident] and missing interviews for an alleged incident of verbal and physical abuse [involving another resident].”
The survey team reviewed a Progress Note dated October 14, 2015. The documentation included that “the resident had fading bruises on his right lateral side but no swelling to the area.” The notation shows that the resident “went out with [staff] to a sporting event.”
The Initial Event Documentation of the same date included that “the resident went to a baseball game with the Assistant Activities Director and Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). As a resident was exiting the wheelchair van in front of the facility, he was lowered on the lifter, holding onto his walker. When he got off the lifter, he put a bag in his right hand, put the bag down, went to reach for the walker, and lost his balance.”
During the incident, the resident “went down on his buttocks.” The CNA paged the supervisor who assisted the resident outside. A Registered Nurse (RN) Supervisor observed the resident on the ground in a seated position. The resident “denied feeling dizzy or lightheaded but described his pain as a ten out of ten. The resident was assisted to a standing position with a walker and two [person] assist. The resident was then walked onto the second unit.”
The resident requested pain medication. The accident/incident report indicated that “the attending Physician was notified” and an x-ray and blood work were ordered.” However, “there was no documented statements from the resident, the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), or other residents or staff that might have been present at the time of the accident.”
