- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date September 6, 2016
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to submit an investigation within five working days to the State Survey Agency for an allegation of potential abuse involving two residents [and] a missing property report for [a third resident].”
The investigators reviewed facility documentation dated March 6, 2016, that revealed the resident “had struck the back of [another resident’s] wheelchair with [their] walker after [the second resident] had told [a resident] to leave the room.”
The aggressive resident “was redirected out of the room. The facility investigation did not reveal any documentation to indicate the investigation had been submitted to the State Survey Agency” as required by law. The Director of Nursing “confirmed that the investigation was not submitted to the State Survey Agency.”
In a separate summary statement of deficiencies dated September 28, 2015, the facility “failed to submit investigations to the State Survey Agency within five working days for [two residents].”
In this investigation, the staff had notified Adult Protective Services that the resident “reported missing a black purse with three identification cards and money. Also noted on the form is that someone called Adult Protective Services again [the following day] to inform them that the missing items were found.”
