- Failure to Respond Appropriately to All Alleged Violations – citation #F610 date October 3, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home "failed to report and investigate an allegation of abuse for [one resident] per the facility policy. This [failure] has the potential for resident abuse to continue.”
The state investigators interviewed a family member of a resident who stated that the resident had accused someone of “slapping her in the facility and nothing was done.” The investigators observed the resident in her room, who was noted “to have her left hand and arm swollen, compared to her right hand and arm.”
The family member stated that “a few weeks ago, [the resident] had stated someone in the facility had slapped her left hand.” The family member stated she “reported this to the Social Service Designee (SSD).” The SSD confirmed that the family member “reported an allegation of abuse on August 20, 2018. The SSD stated nothing was done because she determined [that resident] was making false allegations.”
The Social Service Designee stated, “a Care Plan for Falls allegations was initiated on August 20, 2018, (the date the allegations were made). The SSD stated an investigation was not indicated.”
The investigators reviewed the resident’s clinical records and Progress Notes that indicated “there have been two incidents today that [the resident] made false accusations. The resident stated she got her hands slapped. The resident was with her daughter all morning at the doctor’s appointment and also road with her in the transport van.”
The client's clinical record stated that the daughter was asking the resident “who slapped you and you need to tell me, and we are going to shut this place down and take their license.” The Progress Notes from the following day just after noon revealed that family member stated that the resident has “85% of her memory back and she believes her when her mother asked about the abuse allegation.”
