- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect, and Mistreatment- citation #F607 date June 27, 2019
- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody- citation #F600 date March 12, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure they implemented their policy regarding allegations of abuse/neglect. An allegation of neglect was not identified, reported, or thoroughly investigated. This practice had the potential to affect more than an isolated number of residents."
The investigation involved a severely cognitively impaired resident who "has a Stage IV pressure ulcer to the sacral region that was present upon admission and is being treated with a wound vac. The resident [is] also fed through a Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastronomy to feed patients that cannot swallow."
A Family Member on June 26, 2019, stated that "they reported a Nurse Aide that was not feeding [the resident] her food from the meal tray. The family member said that they told the Patient/Clinical Liaison [and] as far as they knew there had not been anything done about it."
The records on abuse/neglect allegations reveal that there were no reports concerning the Nurse Aide "neglecting to feed the resident."
The Patient Clinical Liaison stated that they were informed but said, "she could not recall who told her. The surveyor asked who was responsible for filling out the reports and grievance forms." The Liaison said, "the Social Workers are now, [but] that at the time, I was."
The Liaison said, "she did not do a report or investigation about it; she did not think of it as reportable, but she said she should have written [it] up as a concern."
The "facility failed to ensure [a resident] was free from neglect. The resident's Care Plan, Kardex, and MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment directed the resident "to have two staff members for toileting and transfers."
The "resident experienced a fall during a transfer when only one staff member was present. This [failure] was true for [one resident] reviewed for the Care Area of Abuse."
