- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation date #F600 May 29, 2018
- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date September 15, 2016
According to state investigators, “it was determined that [for one resident] reviewed for abuse, neglect, and mistreatment, the facility did not ensure the resident was free from mistreatment and abuse. The issues involved allegations of physical abuse.”
A review of the Facility Report dated May 21, 2018, revealed that on May 9, 2018, a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) “hit the resident on the left thigh after the resident grabbed [the CNA’s] hair.” Another CNA “reported the incident two days later on May 11, 2018.”
The state surveyors reviewed the CNAs “education [that] revealed the abuse training was completed on February 4, 2017. She was suspended on May 11, 2018 and terminated on May 18, 2018.”
The nursing home “did not report the incident to the New York State Department of Health. Specifically, the facility did not report three separate incidents of the loss of the main sewer systems, which lasted greater than four hours.”
On September 12, 2016, the investigators reviewed a list of the facility’s Emergency Preparedness Drills and Actual Events.” This document “revealed the facility-wide utility failure of the septic system on September 12, 2015, February 6, 2016, and April 27, 2016. The list also showed that these incidents had not been reported to the New York State Department of Health.”
On September 12, 2015, at 9:00 AM, the Sewer Pump Station #1 “went into High-Level Alarm. When the maintenance responded, they realized that the pump station was without power. The electric company was called, the power was restored, and the incident was cleared at 2:20 PM.”
However, four days later on February 16, 2016, at 10:00 AM, “the Switchboard Operator called the Manager of Environmental Services and stated that “Pump Station #2 was calling and saying that the power alarm now exists. The maintenance responded and found that there was no power. The incident was reported to the electric company, and the septic company was called to pump out the storage.” The pumping station was restored and running at 4:45 PM.
Approximately two months later on April 27, 2016, the Switchboard Operator received a call from Pump at Station #1 stating there was a power failure. This [problem] had been a short blip in the lights at 2:45 PM, resulting in Pump at Station #1 losing power. Maintenance diverted the valves to the holding tank and called the electric company. The electric company reported there was a problem with one of their poles. Power was restored at 7:00 PM.”
