- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect, and Mistreatment – citation #F607 date November 27, 2018
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to implement their Abuse Policy by not thoroughly investigating an allegation of abuse.” This deficient practice affected one resident “reviewed for abuse. This [failure] had the potential to affect [ten residents] who resided on the State-tested Nurse Aide’s shift assignment on November 9, 2018.”
The facility-reported Incident form dated November 13, 2018, revealed that a resident’s sister had “reported to the Director of Nursing [the day before] that a [State-tested Nurse Aide had pulled the resident] up in bed on November 9, 2018, by grabbing him underneath his arms, and hurt her brother’s shoulder.”
The resident had reported that “on that day, he was admitted to the facility, November 9, 2018, he asked [the Aide] to reposition him in bed.” The resident alleged that the Aide “grabbed him underneath his arms and pulled him up in bed. He stated he had asked the [Aide] to help him, but the [Aide] refused.”
The resident indicated that “his shoulder started hurting immediately. Upon receiving the report of the alleged injury to [the resident], the Director of Nursing notified the Physician, and obtained [Physician’s orders].”
The Physician spent ninety minutes with the resident on November 11, 2018, with “no report of shoulder pain. The incident was alleged to have happened [two days earlier], and no report of pain or discomfort was made by [the resident] until his sister reported the alleged incident on November 12, 2018.”
The state surveyors noted that the Investigation Documentation dated November 13, 2018, “failed to show evidence that the facility did a thorough investigation of the incident. Statements were obtained from [the resident, his sister, and the Aide, along with an Occupational Therapist and Registered Nurse (RN)].”
Three other residents “were interviewed with standard abuse and safety questions. These results of the interviews were negative to abuse.” During an interview with the Administrator and Director of Nursing, it was confirmed that the three residents “were interviewed but were not part of the [Aide’s] work assignment. She also verified that ten residents on his assignment are cognitively confused.”
The Director and Administrator also confirmed that “none of the residents on [the Aide’s] assignment had been interviewed, and no skin assessment had been performed for the cognitively confused residents on his assignment during the investigation.”
