- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date June 19, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to notify the Department of Health Services [timely] of an alleged abuse incident for [one resident]. This deficient practice had the potential to place [the resident] and other residents in the facility at risk for abuse.” On April 10, 2018, “the Department received a complaint regarding alleged abuse of a resident by a staff member.”
A review of the resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment indicated that the resident was receiving antidepressant medication. A Progress Note dated April 6, 2018, at 10:00 PM suggested that the resident had reported that “the Charge Nurse tried to cover the resident’s face with a pillow and attempted to choke her. These notes also indicated the resident threw her pillow toward [the Charge Nurse].” The nurse “put the pillow back on the resident’s bed. According to these notes, the resident continued to state that [the Charge Nurse] tried to cover her face with a pillow and choke her.”
An Incident Witness Interview Report dated three days later on April 9, 2018, indicated that at 5:00 PM that day, a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) heard the resident “yelling with her call light on.” The resident told the CNA that the Charge Nurse “closed the door, put a pillow on her face, and grabbed her arm.” The note also indicated that the resident “threw her dinner on the floor, was yelling and cursing at the staff, and when [the Charge Nurse] entered the room, the resident threw her pillow on the floor. This report also indicated [the Charge Nurse] closed the door, picked the pillow up from the floor and placed it on the resident’s right side; while the resident continued to scream.”
The Director of Nursing confirmed that the resident had reported that the Charge Nurse had “covered her faced with a pillow and held her hand.” The Director of Nursing also stated that “the staff was supposed to notify the Director about the alleged abuse but did not.”
