Harts Harbor Health Care Center
Mistreating senior citizens living in nursing homes is an unacceptable, reprehensible, and disgraceful action done by the hands of caregivers, visitors, and other patients. Many families relocate their loved ones into the nursing home believing that they will receive the highest level of care in a safe environment. Unfortunately, neglect and abuse are an all too common occurrence that leaves victims harmed, injured, or dead.

- Failure to Provide Appropriate Treatment and Cares According to Orders, Resident’s Preferences and Goals – citation #F684 date November 14, 2018
- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date August 26, 2016
The state investigators determined that the nursing home failed to provide treatment and care according to “professional standards by failing to provide appropriate urinary catheter care for [one resident] with a suprapubic catheter.”
The resident’s medical record indicated that the resident had a suprapubic urinary catheter and was seen by the Physician on October 26, 2018, “with cloudiness in his urine.” The Director of Clinical Services stated on November 14, 2018, that “she was unable to find any Physician’s orders [on the resident’s] suprapubic catheter.”
The Director confirmed that “if there were no orders, there would be nothing populated to the Medication Administration Record/Treatment Administration Record to direct care.” The Director also confirmed that “catheter care was not documented nine times [and that this] was not acceptable practice.”
The facility “failed to investigate and report an allegation of mistreatment, neglect, and abuse to the Administrator at the facility or his designee, conduct a thorough investigation and prohibit the alleged perpetrator from [having] access to the facility at the time the allegation was reported.”
The facility also “demonstrated a lack of action and commitment to protect [one resident] and other vulnerable residents from the possibility of continued abuse.” The Unit Manager said on August 22, 2016, that the resident “had a stage IV pressure ulcer on his left ischium measuring 2.0 cm x 4.0 cm x 1.8 cm. Currently, the facility was using a Wound VAC to treat the wound.” However, the Unit Manager stated that the last time the care was documented as being provided was on August 12, 2016, ten days earlier.
The survey team interviewed the resident who said that in mid-June, “there had been an incident with a male Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) in which the CNA ripped his brief off and tore his skin on his buttocks and the back of his thighs.” The resident stated that the CNA “knew what happened during that time because he could feel how much force the CNA used when he pulled the brief from between his legs.”
