- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation date #F609 date April 16, 2018
- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation date #Avenue 689 date April 16, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to report to capital Protective Services a resident to resident incident of potential verbal abuse.”
A review of the facility’s Investigation Report revealed that on May 5, 2018, the resident “had a potential verbal abuse against [a second resident]. The facility investigated the incident on March 5, 2018 and initiated interventions to protect [the resident] immediately on March 5, 2018. The report revealed Adult Protective Services was not notified” until ten days later on May 15, 2018.”
The facility administrator confirmed that “the resident to resident verbal altercation was not called into Dull Protective Services until ten days after the incident.”
The facility “failed to protect residents from an accident with an injury.” The Nursing Progress Note revealed that the resident was “found on the floor while the staff [was doing] rounds. The resident was assessed for injuries in pain but denied any pain.”
The resident stated that “the resident was trying to get their clothes off, so the resident could get dressed for church.” A review of the resident’s Care Plan History identified the resident had a sensory pad in bed as of October 3, 2017, as a fall intervention. However, “the sensor pad intervention was taken off the Care Plan on November 21, 2017 with the fall mat at bedside added to the care plan.”
However, because the fall mat was already an intervention since September 5, 2018, it was not added to the New Fall Intervention to replace the sensor pad intervention.” A Nurse Progress Note indicated that the resident “had an unwitnessed fall in their room.”
