The state investigative team determined for three residents reviewed for abuse and neglect that “the facility did not have evidence that all alleged violations were investigated and did not implement a plan to prevent further potential abuse while the investigation was in process. Specifically, [for one resident] whose Care Plan was not followed, the accused Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) was not removed from duty while the investigation was pending, and the CNA was not re-educated timely as planned.”
The nursing home terminated the CNA “for allegations of neglect, and an investigation was not completed to rule out abuse or neglect, or to determine which residents were affected.” One resident had alleged physical abuse had occurred from a staff member in January 2018, and “there was no documented evidence that the facility investigated the allegation timely or protected the resident from the accused staff member while the investigation was ongoing.”
A separate incident involved a resident who reported: “a medication error and the allegation was not reported to the facility Administrator timely it was not investigated timely.” In the first incident, that residents Comprehensive Care Plan indicated that “the resident made accusatory statements to staff members.” A psychologist’s Progress Note dated January 30, 2018, documented that “the resident complained of the staff member held her down and took her clothes off of her.”
