- Failure to Respond Appropriately to All Alleged Violations – citation #F610 date March 8, 2019
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to conduct an investigation for two [residents] reviewed for abuse. This failure prevented the facility from identifying the extent and nature of the occurrence in place to residents at risk for unidentified abuse or neglect.”
The investigation involved a mildly, cognitively impaired resident who “requires one-person physical assistance with activities of daily living.” The resident’s clinical record revealed that the resident “was involved in an incident with [another resident] on February 23, 2019.” The investigated resident had kissed the other resident.
A review of the State Reporting Log “revealed no documentation of the incident log.” The surveyors interviewed the resident who stated that “I was moved to this room because I kissed my friend.”
The resident who had been kissed is “severely, cognitively impaired and requires two-person physical assistance with mobility and transfers, dressing and one-person physical assistance with activities of daily living.”
A review of that resident’s clinical records revealed “no documentation in the record of the incident. Additionally, [the kissed resident] was not placed on alert charting to rule out psychosocial harm.” The surveyors interviewed the resident who “was unable to answer any questions and did not appear to understand.” The facility Director of Nursing Services stated during an interview; ‘I did not see it as an incident because they are friendly.’” The Director stated that “the incident was observed and felt both residents were consenting.”
The Director stated that the resident had been moved to a different room in the facility “to avoid any additional incidents.”
In a separate summary statement dated April 24, 2019, the nursing home “failed to investigate a medication error that occurred during antibiotic administration for [a resident] and failed to investigate an allegation of mistreatment by a staff member [involving two other residents].”
The surveyors indicated that “these failures placed [one resident] at risk for medical complications and [two other residents] at risk for decreased quality of life.”
