According to state investigators, “the facility failed to complete a comprehensive investigation of alleged abuse, including but not limited to neglect.” The incident involved a cognitively intact resident.
The facility’s “Grievance Log revealed that the resident’s sister had complained that [a Nursing Assistant] was providing care to [the resident, her brother] with an attitude.” The documentation shows that the Social Worker spoke to the resident’s sister and stated that the Nursing Assistant “did not always provide care, that the resident was not getting walked on the unit and was not being provided with pain medication.” The sister stated that the assistant “had an attitude.”
The surveyors interviewed the resident who stated that the Nursing Assistant talked with an attitude “when he requested assistance with toileting after the evening meal when he needed it.” The Administrator stated during the interview that “the facility had not obtained a written statement from [the resident] and that the facility had no documentation to present for review indicating that [the resident] had been interviewed regarding the allegations of neglect or verbal abuse.”
The survey team documented that it was later confirmed that “the facility had failed to conduct a complete and thorough investigation of the allegations of abuse.”
The nursing home “failed to adequately supervise and monitor residents to prevent elopement.” The surveyors reviewed the resident’s clinical record and Nursing Note. The note revealed that the resident “was last seen at 4:45 PM at the Nursing Station, but at 5:00 PM when his dinner was delivered to his room, [the resident] could not be found.”
The Facility’s Investigation revealed that the resident “opened the stairwell on the South side of the fourth floor which did not alarm and proceeded to exit the building on the South side of the building at street level.” The “door did alarm at the front desk when the door opened. The door to the street level is just outside the dietary department, and the dietary staff did respond but did not note a resident in the area and turned the alarm off.”
