- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date December 14, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home "failed to report an allegation of abuse to the State Licensing and Certification Agency (California Department of Public Health) for [two residents concerning] a resident-to-resident altercation that occurred on October 20, 2018. This failure has the potential to compromise resident safety when an allegation of abuse is not reported.”
The resident stated to the surveyors that “he had a fight with [another resident] on the patio and was hit with the chair on his left leg.” The assaulted resident stated that he punched back the aggressive resident. The assaulted resident also stated that the aggressive resident “is not here anymore because she was taken by the police the same day when the incident happened.” The assaulted resident further stated that “he could not remember when the incident happened.”
The facility MDS (Minimum Data Set) Coordinator Nurse stated that the aggressive resident had been involved in an altercation with another resident, saying that “the Licensed Vocational Nurse reported to her the resident-to-resident altercation.” One Licensed Vocational Nurse stated that the aggressive resident and another resident were “arguing when [the aggressive resident] threw a chair at [the other resident] while the residents were on the patio.” The nurse stated that she called 911 because the unstable resident “was showing behaviors of aggressiveness, trying to hit the staff and other residents.”
The other Licensed Vocational Nurse stated that “she was redirected to call a psychiatric emergency team, (PET) team, [saying that] the police came and picked up [the aggressive resident].” One of the nurses stated that the law requires “allegations of abuse [involving] physical, financial, verbal, sexual, exploitation, neglect, and isolation with injuries should be reported within a few hours to the Administrator, if serious bodily injury [is involved] and within twenty-four hours if without bodily injury.”
The facility Administrator who serves as the Abuse Coordinator stated that “he makes sure an allegation of abuse is reported to the police, ombudsman, and Health Department as soon as he is made aware of [the problem]. The Administrator further stated he did not report to the Department of Public Health the allegation of abuse involving [both residents].”
