- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect, and Mistreatment – citation #F607 date June 5, 2019
- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date August 21, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to have abuse registry checks for eight employee personnel files” that were reviewed. The state investigators determined that “eight employee personnel files did not obtain abuse registry checks” until the day before the investigation.
The Payroll/Bookkeeper confirmed that there was “a miscommunication problem between the staff coordinator and her as to who was to complete and place the abuse registry checks in the personnel files.”
The “facility staff failed to timely report an allegation of verbal abuse to the facility administrative staff.” The incident involved a resident who “had minimal difficulty hearing, clear speech and usually made himself understood; he sometimes understood others and had impaired vision.”
The resident “experienced delusions, was verbally abusive for one to three days, and refused care on one to three days of the review period. A facility documentation indicated that a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) had informed a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), who served as the Assistant Director of Nursing, that there was “an allegation of verbal abuse involving [another CNA and the resident] on August 7, 2018.”
The documentation indicates that the CNA told the resident, “if [the resident] hit her, she would hit him back, and she would drop them to the floor.” The reporting CNA indicated that they were helping the other CNA clean the resident up who was “being combative, calling names and hitting.”
The CNA was telling the resident she would hit the resident “back, and it would be the last time he ever hit anyone.” The aggressive CNA “told him she would drop them to the floor.”
The investigative team interviewed the Administrator/Abuse Coordinator and the Director of Nursing on August 21, 2018, in the conference room. Both members of the staff agreed that the CNA “failed to report the allegation of verbal abuse immediately after the event to the facility Administrator staff per the facility’s policy.”
