- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date April 24, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to report an injury of unknown origin to the Department (California Department of Public Health) as required, and provide a written report of the investigation within five days for [one resident]. This failure increased the potential for [the resident’s] injury of unknown origin and other potential unknown injuries to not be investigated and addressed.”
The state investigators interviewed a resident’s family member who stated that the resident “had been at the facility for over a year, was not alert and oriented, and could not verbalize her needs.” The family member stated to the investigators that the resident “had a new bruise on her side, not related to a fall.” The family member noted that the resident “had a caregiver at her bedside twenty-four hours a day in the facility [that] would not tell [the family member] what happened.”
The investigative team made an unannounced visit to the facility and reviewed medical records, including the resident’s Brief Interview for Mental Status (BIMS) that indicated that the resident “requires extensive two-person assistance for bed mobility and transfers and limited one-person assistance for walking.”
A Nurse’s Note indicated that the patient had “skin discoloration of the left side next to her left breast and next to the left rib cage.” The patient was “not able to comment what happened.”
There “was no documented indication the injury of unknown origin was immediately reported to the facility’s Administrator/Abuse Coordinator or the Director of Nursing to investigate the cause and extent of the injury.” The investigators interviewed a Licensed Vocational Nurse and Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), who stated that “she did not remember the resident falling down.”
