- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect, and Mistreatment – citation #F607 date December 20, 2018
The state investigators determined that the facility failed “to implement their Abuse Policy by not timely reporting to the State Agency an allegation of potential neglect. This [deficient practice affected one resident] reviewed for potential neglect.”
The incident involved a cognitively impaired resident who “was totally dependent on one staff member with bathing and required an extensive one or two [person] assist for all other activities of daily living.”
A review of the resident’s Nurse’s Notes dated November 30, 2018, revealed that a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) “had documented the resident’s daughter was very loud and aggressive to the State-Tested Nursing Assistants and asked why her mother had not been taken care of all day.”
The note revealed that “the resident was transported to a local hospital.” The LPN stated that the daughter was already at the facility when she arrived for work saying that “the daughter was upset and wanted her mother showered, changed, and the bedding changed.”
The LPN stated that “the daughter was very upset and yelling. He further revealed she was pulling her mother’s clothes out of the closet and said she was taking her home right now because the facility was not taking care of her.” The LPN then called the Director of Nursing to report the incident.
The investigation revealed that the Second Shift Aide stated that approximately 5:00 PM, “the resident was falling asleep in her wheelchair, and she convinced her to let her put her to bed.” The Aide stated that “when she put her to bed, she changed her incontinence brief.” However, the Aide “did not change her gown.”
When the resident’s daughter had arrived, the resident was now “wet with urine from the wet gown.” The investigative team interviewed the Director Nursing, who confirmed that the report “was not submitted to the State Agency until December 12, 2018.”
The Director also confirmed that “he did not report the potential allegation of neglect [that occurred on] November 30, 2018, because [the resident’s] daughter had not used the word neglect when she came to the facility, yelling that her mother was not being properly cared for her.”
