- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation date #F600 January 20, 2018
According to state investigators, “it was determined the facility failed to conduct a comprehensive investigation of an allegation of neglect.” The deficient practice involved three residents at the facility.
In one incident, a resident’s clinical records revealed Physician’s order to perform skin care on the resident and [administer] oral medication when needed to treat mild to severe pain. There was facility documentation the revealed that the resident had reported that a Registered Nurse (RN) “had not been giving her medicine timely for the past four days, even when the resident had asked for the pain medication directly.
The resident stated she had asked the Registered Nurse for the pain medication at approximately 3:00 PM, the previous day and “still had not gotten it before the nurse left at the end of her shift. It stated further that [the resident] also reported that she had not been receiving medication for a yeast infection for two days.”
The documents noted that the resident “began crying and stated that she believed that the nurse was doing it intentionally since it was a repeat occurrence and wanted to report it.” The survey team reviewed the resident’s Medication Administration Record and found “no evidence that other witness statements had been obtained, including other residents that [the RN] had provided care for.”
There was “no evidence the facility had completed a thorough investigation, determine a conclusion, or put corrective measures in place. There was also no evidence available for review that the facility had notified the appropriate agencies as required, including the Department of Health Field Office within five working days.”
In a separate incident, a different resident reported to social services that “when she arrived at the facility the previous day, [the resident found another resident] in his room with feces on him and his clothes.” The female resident asked a Nurse Aide to assist her in cleaning him up” and that the Nurse Aide “had an attitude with her.”
The resident stated that the Nurse Aide “went to the nurse’s station, continued to talk about the family and how she was going to clean the resident.” Finally, a Registered Nurse came to clean the resident and listen to the spouse wanting to transfer the resident to another facility.”
