- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date July 20, 2017
According to state investigators, “the facility did not have evidence that alleged violations involving abuse, neglect, or mistreatment were investigated during a recertification survey for [one resident]. Specifically, [for that resident], the facility did not ensure that two of the resident’s falls were investigated to rule out abuse, mistreatment, or neglect.”
The incident involved a cognitively intact resident who “was usually able to understand others and was able to make herself understood.” The Nursing Progress Note indicated that the resident “called the rehab department this morning [stating] ‘I am on the floor.’ The therapist went to the unit, notified the nursing staff, who stated that the resident did not yell out to let them know she was on the floor.”
A nurse assessed the resident and therapists assisted the resident back to their wheelchair. “No report of pain or other issues” were documented. The resident stated that “she was on the phone, was not paying attention and slid out of her wheelchair.”
The state investigator reviewed the Nursing Progress Note documented the following day that indicated that the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) “lowered the resident to the floor on her legs.” However, “there was no documented evidence in the Incident or Accident Reports for the above falls and no evidence the above falls were investigated.”
The survey team interviewed the Director of Nursing who stated that “there were no Incident and Accident Reports for the falls” on two occasions including on January 27, 2017, and February 11, 2017, and there should have been.” The Director stated that “she was not the Director of Nursing at that time.”
The facility Administrator stated that “for a fall, there should be an evaluation [completed] by a Registered Nurse (RN) and the Physician should be notified. There should be statements obtained from any witnesses, and an Incident and Accident Report should be started by the Registered Nurse (RN) Supervisor.”
The Administrator stated that the report “should be forward to the Assistant Director of Nursing and the Director of Nursing, and they follow up on the investigation.” The nursing home failed to follow established regulations and protocols.
