- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect, and Mistreatment – citation date August 7, 2018
The surveyors “determine the facility had failed to implement their Abuse Policy for [two residents] reviewed for abuse.” The survey team reviewed a State Reportable Final Incident Report Form with an incident date documented as May 31, 2018.” The report indicates that a resident approached a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) and said that another resident “grabbed her breast.” When the alleged resident assailant was interviewed, he stated: “that he did not grab her breast, but he had touched her shoulder.”
The alleged perpetrator “was educated about touching and placed on every hour checks to monitor him until the investigation could be completed” to protect the alleged resident victim and others. However, the “facility investigation was inconclusive. The facility interviewed [the assailant] who acted as if the incident was just humerus (sic).”
The alleged perpetrator “was adamant that he had not touched her inappropriately. There were no witnesses to the incident, and the facility does not have video cameras. The facility interviewed the facility staff and awake, alert and oriented residents to see if anyone has witnessed any behavior on the part of [the allegedly assaulting resident] in the past similar to the allegation.”
No one interviewed “stated that anything had been witnessed by anyone.” The alleged perpetrator “has been educated about touching other residents and personal space by [the LPN]. The facility will report any new relevant information should it become available to all interested parties.”
However, the state investigators noted that “the Final Incident Report investigation documented residents and staff members were not interviewed related to all allegations of abuse until June 5, 2018. There was no documentation [showing] one-hour checks were completed on this [alleged perpetrator] from the time the abuse allegation occurred until the date the investigation was completed.”
When a Registered Nurse was asked to locate information concerning the one-hour checks for the resident, “she stated it should be in the chart. She stated she did not find it in the resident’s record.”
On the same day, the investigators interviewed the Director of Nursing and asked, “what the facility did when an allegation of resident-to-resident abuse occurred?” The Director stated that “the facility would investigate the allegation [saying that] residents and staff would be interviewed and asked if they observed what happened.” The Director verified that interviews were not conducted until June 5, 2018, even though the incident was reported to have occurred on May 31, 2018.
