- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date March 29, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to report injuries of unknown origin, a possible indicator of physical abuse, to the Department of Public Health.” This “deficient practice delayed the Department’s investigation and had the potential for ongoing abuse, which can cause the resident’s physical and psychosocial well-being to decline.”
On February 8, 2019, the state investigators made an unannounced visit to the facility “to investigate a complaint regarding an injury of unknown origin.” The investigation involved a moderately cognitively impaired resident who “requires limited assistance with eating and extensive assistance with bed mobility, transfers, locomotion (moving around), dressing, toilet use, and personal hygiene.”
A review of the resident’s SBAR (Situation, Background, Assessment, Recommendation) and Progress Notes indicated that a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) was changing the resident’s brief and reported “to the Charge Nurse that the resident was in pain. A body check was completed,” and there was swelling to the resident’s right hip. The resident was given pain medication, and an ice pack was provided.
The Assistant Director of Nursing stated that she does not believe the resident “was physically abused because his nurse is really good, [and] even catches small things.” The Assistant Director also confirmed that “physical abuse could not be ruled out because [the resident] had an injury of unknown origin.”
The Assistant Director of Nursing stated that “there is no documented evidence of the facility determining that the resident’s injury of unknown origin was not caused by physical abuse.” The Assistant Director confirmed that the resident’s “injury of unknown origin was not reported to the Department” as required by law.
The results of the investigation for the resident’s injury of unknown origin “were also not reported.” The Assistant Director verbalized that “the importance of reporting injuries of unknown origin to the Department [is] so that the alleged incident could be investigated and to protect the resident and prevent ongoing abuse.”
A review of the facility’s policy titled: Abuse Investigation and Reporting indicated that “all alleged violations involving abuse, neglect, exploitation, or mistreatment, including injuries of unknown source and misappropriation of property will be reported by the facility Administrator or his/her designee to the following persons or agencies: the state licensing/certification agency responsible for surveying/licensing facilities.
