- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date May 13, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to report an allegation of physical abuse for [two residents] to the Department of Public Health (the Department) within twenty-four hours, as indicated in the facility’s policy and procedure.”
The incident involved two residents. One resident allegedly kicked the other resident on “the right side of her face on March 16, 2019, at approximately 9:00 PM. The facility reported the physical abuse allegation to the Department on March 18, 2019, (more than twenty-four hours after). This deficient practice had the potential for further abuse.”
At 10:40 AM on April 2, 2019, the state investigators made an unannounced visit to the facility “to investigate a complaint regarding resident abuse.” The incident involved a severely cognitively impaired resident who “requires extensive assistance for transfers and personal hygiene with a one-person physical assist.”
A review of the resident’s SBAR (Situation, Background, Assessment, Recommendation) dated March 16, 2019, at 10:00 PM indicated that the assaulted resident had reported that the other resident “hit the right side of her face at 9:00 PM.” The injured resident stated that the alleged perpetrator “hit the right side of her face for no reason and that she could not remember the date and time.” The injured resident was “cognitively intact for daily decisions.”
The facility’s Director of Nursing said that a Licensed Vocational Nurse had notified her the day after the incident, which is why it was reported to the Department late for more than twenty-four hours after the event had occurred. The Director stated that the Licensed Vocational Nurse “was supposed to report the incident immediately (right after the incident happened).”
The investigators reviewed the facility’s policy and procedure titled: Abuse Prevention and Reporting from 2007 that indicated that “the facility should ensure reporting of all alleged or substantiated violations to the State Agency and all other agencies as required, and the facility shall report the incident by calling the department within twenty-four hours of knowledge of such an incident.”
