- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies That Prevent Mistreatment, Neglect or Abuse of Residents – citation #F226 date August 3, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to investigate an allegation of abuse for [one resident]. Specifically, a resident communicated with the Administrator that a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) “had an attitude with her.” The Administrator “failed to follow the facility’s policies and procedures for investigating an allegation of verbal abuse.”
The resident stated that the CNA “has an attitude with the resident [who] was afraid to report” but did tell the past Assistant Director of Nursing that “she did not want it reported.” The investigation included speaking to the CNA over concerns who stated that “they did not feel that she has an attitude with the resident and will be more friendly with the resident when interacting with the resident.”
The documentation shows that the incident was resolved and that the “resident stated that the CNA has been great to her and no more issues.” However, a review of the resident’s Comprehensive Care Plan “did not reveal any documentation regarding abuse or psychosocial well-being.”
The investigators interviewed the Director of Nursing and the Administrator who was asked: “to describe the process for an allegation of abuse.” The Administrator stated that “the staff member is suspended pending an investigation, the Administrator is notified, and the Facility Reported Incident is completed and sent to the State agency pending an investigation.”
The investigators asked if “the CNA was still involving caring for the resident.” The Administrator stated that “she was.” The Administrator also stated that “she was unaware of the grievance and she was not asked to investigate.”
During an interview with a nurse practitioner, it was revealed that there was a CNA “who was rude to the residents.” A staff member stated that “the staff was afraid to report this behavior to the administration fearing their tires would be slashed.”
The staff member stated that the allegedly abusive CNA “was in the hallway, and ‘I heard her yelling at the resident in another hallway, I went to the nurse’s station to see what the problem was.’” The staff member stated that the nurses discussed the problem, and “I am not sure if anyone intervened.”
