- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date April 6, 2017
According to state surveyors, “the facility failed to thoroughly investigate an allegation of abuse/mistreatment for [two residents] and a bruising of unknown origin involving a resident’s head.”
One incident involved a resident who requires extensive assistance of two staff members for bed mobility and one-person assistance for transfers, locomotion on-and-off the unit, toilet use, dressing, and personal hygiene.” The survey team reviewed a statement documenting that the resident refused care “throughout the night and by the end of the shift [the staff had to] change his whole bed.”
The staff member said, “we tried to change his shirt, and he started raising his voice, cursing and did not want to be touched.” The staff member stated that the resident began swinging and therefore, “we had walked away and reported it to the nurse in charge.”
A facility incident report dated the following day on February 25, 2017, noted that the resident “reported the care he received from [a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)] was rough.” The resident said that “she rolled me side to side very rough to the point where I yelled at her to stop. The incident report documented no apparent injury. It documented the resident’s son was notified at 11:50 AM” and a “message was left with the resident’s Physician at noon.”
A review of an employee witness statement dated February 25, 2017, written by a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) stated “I received a call from [the resident’s representative stating that the resident] has complained several times that [the CNA] has been very rough when providing care. I reported this to the Case Manager, who was supposed to meet with [the resident].”
The facility Case Manager “came to the nurse’s station to report he told the police that the girl who was rough with them had been here.” The resident stated to the Case Manager that, “I do not want her to be in trouble, but I do not want her to be in his room anymore. She also needs to be an example for other employees here and show that if you do not care about the residents, you get in trouble.”
