The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure a complete background check was performed, and a waiver letter had been issued for employees found guilty with disqualifying charges for employment.” The incident involved two Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) new hires.
The state investigative team reviewed one CNA’s Personal File that revealed a Record of Arrest and Prosecutions Sheet for Arrest for “Forgery and Violation of Credit Card Act on February 6, 1981, Prostitution on July 1, 1983, Prostitution and Solicitation on September 7, 1983, Battery on May 21, 1991, Theft and Possession of [medications]/Syringe/Needle, Battery on October 13, 1996, Battery on October 3, 1996, and Theft on October 3, 1996.”the nursing home hired the CNA on February 27, 2018, “with no waiver letter.”
A review of the second CNA’s Personnel File revealed a Record of Arrest and Prosecutions Sheet with Arrest for Intent to Produce, Manufacture, Distribute [medications] and conviction of attempted possession [of] methamphetamine on July 9, 2015, with a probation for five years beginning December 14, 2015, and ending December 14, 2020.” The nursing home hired the CNA on December 6, 2017, “with no waiver letter.”
The Human Resource Director for the facility said that “no call was made to clarify charges on the Record of Arrest and Prosecution sheets and no waiver letters were obtained [before] letting them work.” Both CNAs were still employed and working with residents of the facility.”
The nursing home “failed to fully investigate an allegation of rape and failure to send [the resident] to the emergency room for a Rape Kit to be collected.” The nursing home also “failed to provide the attorneys general officer with collected evidence from [the resident timely] that impeded the investigative process.”
The nursing home also “failed to have the sufficient number of staff to meet the needs of the residents and failed to supervise [another resident] after verbalizing intent to have sex with [the first resident].” An interview with the first resident revealed that “when asked if anything had happened to her recently, she responded, a man got in bed with me, he raped me, and he put his thing in me.”
