According to state surveyors, “the facility failed to ensure the resident was free from psychological abuse.” This deficient practice by the nursing staff affected one resident “reviewed for potential abuse.”
The survey team reviewed a self-reported incident involving a facility investigation. A resident was involved in a snapshot incident after a housekeeper recorded the resident “outside dancing.” During the investigation, it was revealed that there were two possible witnesses who had received the snapshot video including the Assistant Business Office Manager and the Payroll Personnel Employee.
While the incident occurred on May 13, 2017, it was not reported or investigated until five days later, on May 18, 2017, only after the Administrator “heard rumors of the occurrence.” The housekeeper that captured the video was terminated four days later, and the Assistant Business Office Manager and Payroll Personal Employee were reprimanded “for not immediately reporting the snapshot video which caused a HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) violation involving every resident’s right to privacy.
The nursing home “failed to ensure that [a resident] was free from the abuse of misappropriation of property by a facility staff member.” The incident involved a resident with moderately impaired cognition who “notices debit card was missing and started looking for it.”
The following day, the resident continued to search for his debit card, “and when he could not find it, he called the credit card company and had the account frozen.” The bank informed the resident “that there were seven charges” made over the last two days. Once the “resident reported the cart stolen, about an hour later, it appears that the nursing station.” The nursing home called the police who reviewed video footage at the nursing station where the card had reappeared and started an investigation.
