- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date December 19, 2017
According to state investigators, “it was determined that for [one resident] reviewed for abuse, and [one resident] reviewed for accidents, the facility did not report allegations of possible abuse, neglect or mistreatment to the New York State Department of Health. The issues involved allegations of misappropriations of funds for [one resident], and verbally and physically rough treatment.”
The incident involved a cognitively intact resident whose Complaint/Recommendation Form revealed that the resident “reported that a staff member made unauthorized charges on his bank card. The police were notified, and the bank card was canceled. There was no documentation that any staff was interviewed, there was no police report obtained until after surveyor intervention, and the incident was not reported to the New York State Department of Health” as required by law.
The investigators interviewed the resident who said “his bank called him on October 10, 2017 and asked if he was aware of a transaction of $430. The resident said he was not, and he did not make that transaction. He said he gave his bank card to a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) to get him a soda from the soda machine, and she bought four and gave him one.”
The resident said that the “police were called, and he has not heard from the police or the facility since.” The facility Social Worker indicated during an investigation that “the resident described the CNA who he said he gave his bank card to, and the facility identified the employee.”
The Social Worker indicated that “the staff member was called and asked to come in and write a statement, but she never did, and she did not return to work. The Social Worker stated that the facility should have notified the New York State Department of Health because it was abuse.”
The Director of Nursing stated during an interview that “misappropriation of funds was directed to the Social Worker to start an investigation. She said if it was found to be at the hands of staff in the facility, it was to be reported to the New York State Department of Health. The Director said that she was not working at the facility at the time, but she would expect the incident to be more thoroughly investigated, a police report obtained, and the incident reported” to the proper authorities.
