- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date August 29, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure an allegation of financial abuse involving [a resident] was reported to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) immediately, no later than two hours after the allegation was made. This failure had the potential to result in a delayed independent investigation of the department, which increases the risk of further abuse for [the resident].”
A Social Service Progress Note indicated that the patient had been assessed for psychosocial well-being related to an allegation of financial abuse against a former roommate/Durable Power of Attorney for health care. The note indicates that the nursing staff contacted Adult Protective Services and the local law enforcement sheriff’s office. However, “there was no documentation the allegation of financial abuse was reported to the California Department of Public Health” as required by law.
In a separate summary statement of deficiencies dated February 28, 2019, the facility “failed to report an allegation of sexual inappropriateness, involving [two residents] to the California Department of Public Health within two hours after the allegation was made. This failure had the potential to result in a delayed investigation which could place [the resident] at risk for further abuse from another resident while at the facility.”
A review of a Progress Note indicated that one resident from a different room when into the patient’s room and “was sexually inappropriate with [them].” A Registered Nurse (RN) Supervisor and Assistant Director of Nursing “spoke with a patient and offered to move him to another room away from [the sexually inappropriate resident].” The nursing staff made the Administrator aware of the incident.
The facility Administrator stated that “any allegation should be reported to the Administrator or the Abuse Coordinator as soon as possible.” The Director of Nursing reviewed the documentation and confirmed that the incident involving both residents involved sexual inappropriateness. “She agreed an allegation of abuse should be reported to the Department (CDPH) within the time frame as stated in the regulation.”
