- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect, and Mistreatment – citation #F607 date June 17, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to implement its policy and procedure on Abuse Reporting evidenced by [a Dietary Aide] not reporting a witnessed incident of resident-to-resident abuse.”
It was revealed that one resident pushed another resident, causing the second resident “to fall and sustain a laceration to the back of the head.” The Dietary Aide “witnessed the incident but did not report it to the Administrator or nursing staff. This deficient practice had the potential for abuse not being uncovered, prevented, and investigated.”
The state investigators made an unannounced visit to the facility to “investigate a facility-reported incident on August 28, 2018.” The investigation involved a “resident-to-resident abuse allegation.” One severely cognitively impaired resident “requires limited assistance from staff when eating and extensive assistance when performing other activities of daily living, such as dressing, toilet use, personal hygiene, and walking in the room or corridors.”
The second, moderately cognitively impaired resident “requires limited assistance from staff when performing activities of daily living such as dressing and walking in rooms and corridors.” The second resident “used a walker or wheelchair for mobility.”
The Dietary Aide stated that on August 13, 2018, at approximately 6:30 PM, “she saw a male resident push a female resident while she was walking down the hallway.” The aide stated, “she got scared and left the scene immediately. She did not report the incident to anyone.”
The Director of Nursing stated that a Registered Nurse (RN) “reported to her on August 13, 2018, before 7:00 PM, [that a resident] had a fall, and nobody knew how the resident fell.” The Director stated that “she became aware of the incident when on August 17, 2018, the Dietary Aide claimed to have witnessed [the male resident] pushing the female resident.”
The Director of Staff Development stated that “she provides new employees with abuse training, conducts a monthly in-service on abuse prevention of reporting, and instructs staff to report any suspicion of abuse to their supervisor or to the Abuse Coordinator [for] the facility to report the allegation to the State Agency and to other officials within two hours.”
A review of the facility’s policy titled: Abuse Prevention and Prohibition Program indicates that “the staff of the facility are mandatory reporters” and must timely report any incident of abuse, neglect, or mistreatment to their immediate supervisors and the facility Administrator.
