- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date August 30, 2018
The state investigators determined that the facility “failed to report an allegation of possible abuse for one resident.” The Director of Nursing investigated the incident and revealed that on July 12, 2018, a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) taught another CNA “range of motion exercises on the resident.”
The CNA providing the training “massaged the resident’s left hip area and stated [that] sometimes he has trouble getting it up and then said, ‘Oh, I mean his leg. The staff member and the resident were winking-talking “as if they were teasing each other, and this made [the CNA in training] feel uncomfortable, and she could not wait to exit the room.”
The Registered Nurse (RN) Unit Manager documented that the resident “verbalized during a care conference that range of motion was not being completed as he desired or as frequently as ordered.” The resident stated that the staff member “had done an excellent job with a range of motion and [another CNA] asked if the resident would prefer to have [the first CNA] teach other staff on a range of motion.”
That CNA “had been performing massage therapy in addition to a range of motion [therapy] on the resident, and she left after forty-five minutes to take care of other residents.” The Director of Nursing had asked the resident if the staff “treat you with respect and dignity?” The resident responded, “I guess.”
The resident verified he felt safe there. The resident denied ever being abused or seen any other patient being abused at the facility. An interview with the resident conducted on August 30, 2018, indicated that the staff member “and he became close [because of] the time they spent together as she worked on him. He knew nothing would become of the relationship as she was an employee here. The resident reported nothing sexual happened as he had a catheter.”
The resident stated that that CNA “would massage his legs, feet, hip, hands, shoulders, and back, which no other staff would do for him.” The Director of Nursing stated that they had spoken to the resident’s power of attorney concerning the incident involving the CNA and the resident. The power of attorney and the resident “did not have an issue [with the incident].” The Director said that was “where she left it.”
