- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date November 18, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to report to the State Agency an allegation of abuse reported to the facility [on a different date], by the resident’s family.” The deficient practice affected one resident at the facility.
The state investigators talked to the Director of Nursing about a resident reported grievance concern involving a resident who “was left in a bowel movement for a long time.” The Director indicated that the family of a resident was brought to her office to report concerns about being left in a bowel movement.
The surveyors asked the Director the procedure of “what should happen according to the facility policy when someone makes an allegation of abuse?” The Director stated, “to call the Administrator, determine if [the incident is] reportable and report to the Alabama Department of Public Health.”
The Director was asked if she considered a resident being left in a bowel movement for a long time was considered abuse. The Director replied, “it is dependent on how long the resident was left in a bowel movement.”
The investigative team asked, “what she had done to determine how long the resident was left in bowel movement.” The Director replied, “she had not got to that point” in the investigation. The surveyors asked if the allegation should have been reported to the State Agency. The Director replied, “this is what it sounds like since we were unable to determine how long [the resident] was in poop.”
The state investigators determined that the facility failed to develop policies that prevent mistreatment, neglect, or abuse of residents when it failed to ensure the Abuse Policy was implemented “when an allegation of abuse was made to the facility by a resident’s family.” The allegation “was not reported to the State Agency.” This investigation involved a review of resident’s records, interviews, and the facility policy titled: Abuse Policy, along with a review of the facility form titled Customer Concern/Grievance Communication Form.
