The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure that [one resident] was safe from verbal abuse when a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) was overheard yelling, ‘shut up,’ to [the resident]. This failure potentially could affect [the resident’s] psychosocial well-being.”
The facility Administrator stated that “he was notified over the phone that the Medical Records Director overheard [a CNA] yelling, ‘shut up,’ to a resident in the hallway.” The Administrator said that “he suspended [the CNA] immediately, pending a five-day investigation and sent a Special Incident Report per facility policy and procedure to required agencies.” The Administrator also said that the CNA “had another allegation of abuse, but it was unsubstantiated.”
The facility “failed to follow their policies and procedures when they did not follow up with the criminal background check for [one housekeeper], who had access to vulnerable residents. This [failure] resulted in [the housekeeper], who had a felony pending on his background check, to have daily access to vulnerable resident populations.
The facility hired a housekeeper with an offense of injuring a spouse, cohabitant, boyfriend, or girlfriend within “five years prior [with a] severity as a felony.” The second offense included “battery on a spouse/cohabitating/non-cohabitant former spouse, etc. with open severity of misdemeanor [and] their offense of battery on spouse/cohabiting/non-cohabitant former spouse, etc. with the severity of misdemeanor.”
The housekeeper also had a fourth offense of “driving with a license suspended/revoked with the severity of misdemeanor.” The facility Assistant Administrator stated that there was no follow-up with the pending felony for injuring a spouse, cohabitant, boyfriend or girlfriend within seven days prior, in violation of the facility’s policies.
