- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date July 13, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to report an injury of unknown source and an allegation of abuse to the appropriate state officials.” The investigation involved a severely cognitively impaired resident who had “short and long-term memory loss. She requires extensive assist of two persons for transfers.”
The survey team reviewed a Nursing Progress Note dated May 13, 2018. The note revealed that a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) “came and brought [the resident] to [the nurse] to show her a swollen forehead. The family was here visiting her. [The resident] was sent to the hospital for evaluation.”
The facility Administrator and Director of Nursing stated that “the facility had only one reportable incident and no reports” during the time frame that the resident suffered a swollen forehead. The Director stated that “she had conducted the investigation and submitted the Federal Immediate Report,” saying that the Registered Nurse (RN) supervisor phoned her at home, reporting the resident “had swelling on her forehead.”
The Director stated that the RN had said that the family “was concerned that it could be a hematoma and wanted [the resident] sent to the emergency room to be checked out.” The Director stated that the RN supervisor “informed her that there was no redness or bruising, just like swelling, and that [the resident] was not complaining of any pain or discomfort.”
The Director of Nursing stated that she had told the supervisor “to send [the resident] to the emergency room [and] did nothing further that day and started the investigation, including informing [the Administrator, [on the next day].”
At the end of the investigation, she determined that “[the resident] did not sustain the swelling to her forehead until lunchtime on May 13, 2018” that the CNA did not notice until sometime later, and “there was no swelling observed prior to that time.”
The emergency room stated that the resident had arrived after falling, and a CT scan was negative “except for a frontal subscapular hematoma” at the time. The resident also had “urinary tract infection cultures positive for E. coli.”
