- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date March 19, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to follow its policy and procedure to report an alleged episode of staff-to-resident verbal abuse within twenty-four hours to the State Department after a resident alleged that the Director of Nursing yelled at him. This [failure] had the potential to compromise protection of [the resident] and other residents from aggressive verbal behavior.”
The surveyors indicated that “verbal abuse includes the use of oral, written, or adjusted communication, or sounds to residents within hearing distance, regardless of age, inability to comprehend, or disability.”
The resident told the surveyors that “the incident happened on January 30, 2018, before dinner time.” The resident stated he was in the dining room for some coffee and while still there, the Director of Nursing “walked into the room with a strong, high voice [that] allowed for everyone in the room to hear him say get out of the 400 Dining Room to the 300 Dining Room (a much bigger dining room in the 300 cap hallway).”
The resident stated that “his room was right across the hallway from the 400 Dining Room, where he used to have his meals. He changed a week ago. He would have to go to the 300 Dining Room to eat.” The resident stated that “he was just getting a cup of coffee and not talking to the staff. He felt embarrassed after the incident. He was still angry with the Director of Nursing and reported the incident to the Social Services Director the next morning.”
The resident believed that the Director “yelled at him because he had been caught speaking Spanish in the 400 Dining Room to a staff member before.” The resident stated that “he knew some English but always preferred to speak Spanish to the Hispanic staff.”
The surveyor spoke with the Social Services Director, who stated that the Director had instructed her to talk to the resident because the resident saying that “he was mad at [the Director] for yelling at him over the language issue the day before.”
