- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation date February 4, 2019
According to investigators, “the facility failed to timely report the misappropriation of dedication for [one resident] and incidents of resident-to-resident abuse.” The surveyors reviewed a facility reported incident where a resident “was assisted out of bed and brought to the nurse’s station common area.”
The report “states that approximately [at] 2:30 AM, a Registered Nurse (RN) was observed by a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) to have removed a medication from the medication cart, crushed it and administered it to [the resident].” The report states that the resident “became restless at approximately 3:00 AM and again was assisted out of bed to the common area.”
The LPN stated in the report that the RN “said to her that she should give [the resident their medication] and that she was not sure whose [medication] she gave him the night before but it worked wonders, and that is why he slept so well the night before.” The report indicates that the resident “does not have a Physician’s order for [that medication].”
The survey team interviewed the Nursing Home Administrator and the Director of Nursing who “confirmed the misappropriation of property occurred on January 20, 2019, it was not reported by [the LPN] to the administration until January 23, 2019.”
In a separate incident, another resident’s clinical record revealed that the resident was exhibiting “aggressive behavior toward female residents.” The resident’s Nursing Progress Note revealed that on January 19, 2019, the nursing staff “spoke with the Physician regarding the resident’s increased behaviors with the resident-to-resident altercations” in the last four weeks. Altercations have been on the March 2, 2011, shifts and all with women.”
A report in January indicated that the resident “kicked another resident in the shin in the hallway.” The day before, the resident “struck a female resident on two different days.” On January 8, 2019, the resident was accused by another resident that “he kicked her in the hallway.”
The survey team interviewed the Nursing Home Administrator and Director of Nursing who stated that since the resident “has a cognitive impairment, and is not able to form intent, they did not report the resident-to-resident altercation to the applicable State Agency” as required by law.
