- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date October 13, 2016
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to thoroughly investigate and report an incident of possible abuse or neglect by a staff member to the appropriate State Agencies. This [failure] occurred for [one resident] reviewed for unexpected events from June 12, 2016, through October 8, 2016.”
The investigators reviewed the Incident/Accident Reports that revealed on August 30, 2016, the resident “sustained a 16.0 cm x 4.5 cm wide imprint/abrasion to her left thigh.” A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) rolled “the resident over to take the lift pad out from underneath the resident [and] one of the straps was under her left thigh.”
The CNA “reported to the nurse that she might have a bruise on her left thigh” that occurred at 9:30 AM this morning. When “the resident was lifted back into bed with the lift pad, and when changing the resident, the CNA noticed that the resident had a 16.0 cm x 4.5 cm wide imprint/abrasion on the left side. The record was silent for witness statements.”
The surveyors reviewed the resident’s medical records that revealed: “she was totally dependent on staff for bed mobility, transfers, toilet use, personal hygiene, and other activities of daily living.” The surveyors interviewed the Social Services Director, who stated, “I am not involved with these unless they tell me it is a reportable [event]. It is not considered a reportable [event] unless it causes harm or discomfort, but I was not involved with either of these incidents.”
The Director stated that “the Administrator did these investigations because she is also a Social Worker with a master’s degree.” The investigators interviewed the Administrator who stated that “she had witness statements for [the resident, saying that] I did not report these incidents because it was not intentional and did not harm the residents. The CNA told the nurse about leaving the lift strap under [the resident], and it may have caused a bruise. The strap and only been under the resident’s leg that morning.”
The Administrator “was unable to provide any evidence confirming the statement [and] did not reply when asked why a large imprint/abrasion measuring 16.0 cm x 4.5 cm was not considered possible harm.” The Administrator “also did not reply when asked about an injury or an unexpected event of staff causing injury to a resident whether intentional or an intentional was not reportable to the appropriate State Agencies.”
