- Failure to Develop and Implement Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect, and Mistreatment – citation #F607 date February 7, 2018

The nursing home “failed to follow their abuse policy and complete a thorough investigation for alleged misappropriation of resident property.” The survey team reviewed a resident’s self-reported incident that revealed the resident “and her son indicated to the floor nurse that they could not find $50 the resident received from a family member.”
Documentation revealed that “it was alleged that the money went to the facility’s laundry in a pair of blue pants. It was then suggested the money must have been found at some point in the laundry but not returned.” The investigator stated that the self-reported incident documents and the Administrator revealed that “there were many interviews with staff members or residents concerning the missing $50.”
According to state surveyors, “the facility failed to ensure three residents who were assessed at high risk for falls had interventions in place to prevent falls.” The deficient practice by the nursing staff affected three residents “reviewed for falls that resulted in actual harm when [two residents fell], sustaining a fracture, head injuries, and subsequent hospitalization.”
In one incident, a resident, who had no falls in the past three months, was incontinent and ambulatory, had two falling incidents where one occurred at 5:50 AM and another at 7:14 PM the same day. There were no apparent injuries.
The resident experienced a third falling incident that resulted “in head trauma and a deep laceration. First-aid was administered, and medical treatment sought which included hospitalization, x-rays, and paramedic aide. It was unclear from the incident log or documentation of the medical record that interventions were in place at the time of the falls and if any interventions were added after the above falls.”
In a separate summary statement dated February 7, 2018, the facility “failed to ensure fall interventions were in place for residents at risk for falls.” One incident involved a review of a Fall Investigation where staff “were performing care and another resident and heard a loud noise. It was documented a few minutes [before] the fall, [the resident] was noted to be sitting in front of another recliner chair in her wheelchair. There were no injuries noted. She was confused and severely cognitively impaired.”
