- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date April 24, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to report an allegation of abuse for [one resident, who alleges that] he was hit in the mouth by facility staff. This failure had the potential for the resident to suffer from the abuse allegation not being investigated.” The incident involved a resident with dementia who requires “extensive assistance with two-person assist for transfers, eating, and personal hygiene.”
A review of the Alleged Abuse, Neglect, and Exploitation Investigation Worksheet indicated that a family member of the resident had reported that a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) hit the resident on the mouth. The social services department informed the Administrator “of the abuse allegation following a care conference meeting with the family member.”
At that time, the CNA was suspended pending the investigation. The family member stated that while visiting the resident, “he noted that the resident was angry. When asked what was going wrong, [the resident] stated ‘she hit me’ [and] referred to the CNA.”
The family member asked the CNA, “did you hit him?” The CNA responded, “No.” However, the family member indicated that he observed a cut on the inside of the resident’s lip and then notified a Registered Nurse (RN) of the resident’s allegation that the CNA hit him.
The Registered Nurse stated that “she was going to make a report.” However, the family member “never heard back from the facility regarding the incident.” The Administrator stated that “he was informed of the abuse allegation by social services.”
The Administrator also said that “the allegation of abuse was not reported to the Department of Health because the facility’s abuse policy indicates allegations of abuse involving residents with dementia do not need to be reported to the Department of Health, they are reported to either the police department or the ombudsman’s office.”
The Registered Nurse involved in the incident stated that “she did not report the incident because she was not aware it was an allegation of abuse.”
